Re: Credit Score and Dating....

Honestly, I don't think so at all. My boyfriend is fabulous and I know I'll marry him, but he has NO credit at all and it absolutely kills me. He's in graduate school now, but once he's done, I'm going to want to buy a house and stop wasting money on rent. I push him all the time to at least get a credit card, but he's completely content with his credit union checking account. I think he's honestly scared of debt. He's super responsible and has impressive impulse control (I don't), so if I can handle it, I know he can. It drives me crazy! If he doesn't have at least some credit history before he gets out of school I just might kill him.

Re: Credit Score and Dating....

I'm with the OP. I'm a single 32 year old woman and, as such, I am an adult. I have definitely made credit mistakes in the past which are nearly all cleared up now but I had to want to get there. If I was dating a man my age or older and he simply didn't care about his financial situation, I would assume he also didn't care about his future...with me or anyone. Saying "my credit sucks but I'm working on it" is one thing. Not knowing your credit score and ignoring phone calls and letters is another.
