When it comes to dating, I think a perfect credit score is super sexy. And so it seems that there are a growing number of young singles who also think so because the the new dating website that has popped up called creditscoredating.com where part of the personal profile is their credit score. Match.com and e-harmony don't use credit scores in the matchmaking process but a crop survey suggested that more and more people are interested in knowing the credit score of their potential romantic partner.
People are more likely to look at you funny if you bring up your perfect credit score in casual conversation. Even so, it's nice to be known as having a rock-solid credit reputation.
A good credit score demonstrates a clear history of financial intelligence. It shows, self control.
If you're a financially responsible person, I suspect you would not want to date someone with bad financial record.
You might really like this guy but finances are very important to the health and well-being of all relationships. They are the most common things couples argue about. If your partner is a spendthrift, doesn't act responsibly and even spends your money that your saving, it could wreak havoc on the relationship. Keep in mind that once a joint account is open you become responsible for your partner's actions. This could damage your credit.
I know one young woman whose husband amassed so much credit card debt, that they divorced. She had to go back to live with her parents while she paid it all back. (There's a happy ending though, she met and married a family friend studying to be a doctor, had two little girls and lived happily ever after)
It appears that many people who are on dating sites would like to have the option of knowing the credit score of their prospective dates. And why not? It tells more about your personality than knowing if you love the colour blue or beagle dogs. Don't you agree?
