Credit Score and Dating....

Is it wrong that once a person i am dating mentions having bad credit I immediately become less attracted to that person and slowly turn around and run away?

 

is it wrong that having good credit is at the top of my checklist in what I want in a partner?

 

i just feel like its so wrong, but I can't help it. When I see a guy with a good credit card I become intrigued....i don't care if they are poor or whatever, its just good to know they take care of their finances. 

 

Sorry about the rant.  I just went out with a guy who said he can't get a credit card now because of his history......what a curve ball.....all I could think about the rest of the night was going home and taking off my heels.

Re: Credit Score and Dating....

Nothing wrong with that. I have read several articles recently talking about how the new thing is asking about a person's credit on a first date. Seems like good motivation to get your financials in order.

So, you are saying......

If this girl meets a great guy with a credit score of 800 and they start a wonderful relationship, they sit around a fire with a nice glass of wine comparing cards and APR's. They eventually are engaged and he buys her ring with his Visa Black Card but pays in full before the statement hits. Everything is grand!!!

6 months down the road, she loses her job while she is trying to care for her father who is dying of cancer. Now she must support her mother as an only child. Financial disaster has hit home.....She loses everything and her credit has hit bottom. 

It now makes it OK for him to call of the engagement?

LOL :smileyhappy:

Ok I am not dating any woman that weight over 112 pounds!!!!!!

I personally think that there's nothing wrong with that. It just shows you that you know what you want. In fact it could be a good thing. You know the qualities / characteristics of what you see in a person that you could potentially end up with for the rest of your life!

I really don't look for much in a girl. She just needs to be a part of NFCU so I can join too!
