Credit Score Dating Doesn’t Mean Romance is Dead

Dating apps and websites have been around for decades now and the popularity is undeniable. Yours truly even got her man on the internet and he hasn’t murdered me yet…so I’m going to call it a success. What appealed to me about online dating was the efficiency of learning how compatible someone might be before going out IRL. If I went on a first date with every dude I swiped through, I would have died single and bitter with the most aggressive red wine teeth stains on earth.

Nowadays online daters are playing an impressive long game. Many are posting their credit scores into their dating profiles, alongside their age, height, weight, and occupation, for any potential partner to see. And there are even credit score dating apps, like Credit Cupid, that specifically cater to selective singles seeking relationships exclusively with those who have good credit.

This open disclosure is a relatively new phenomenon that seems to stem from the number of people who realize that financial difficulties and poor money management habits are serious problems in long-term relationships. Or maybe it’s because these younger generations are crippled by intense student loan debt and are hoping to partner with someone who will make positive financial decisions with them. 

Most people in a relationship find it awkward to discuss personal financial issues like debt. Individuals who are starting new relationships might place a lot of pressure on only pursuing partners who won’t hinder their long-term financial plans. Do they want to own a home? Buy a new car? Save for retirement or plan for a child’s future college education? 

Or, if they prefer up-front and open discussions about their current credit status and debt outlook, they might only be hoping to avoid investing a lot of time into a relationship with someone that demonstrates irresponsible financial behavior. 

Whatever their reasoning, the younger generation is definitely putting effort into securing a better financial future by using credit score dating apps to ensure their partners are on the same page. Hopefully, if they are already in a loving relationship, they don’t decide to suddenly drop their partner just because of their credit score. Remember, with a bit of effort, any credit score is redeemable. 

Have other questions about how your credit score might affect your financial future? Wondering whether a spouse’s bad credit would affect your mortgage qualifications? Or who’s credit score will be used for the purchase? For all your credit score questions, check out our post on Common Credit Score Questions.

My hubby and I worked with Julie to purchase our first home and it was awesome
We actually screened a bunch of lenders before we decided to work with Julie, and we are really happy we did the research. Julie kept the process simple for us.    

She was able to help us understand the entire process
I would say without her and her team we probably would have lost our minds worrying over every little thing but she was able to help us every step of the way.

Julie!!!!!! You are the bomb.com!
You made it happen! When others always denied us... Thank you so much for helping us refinance our home! You are a miracle woman!

Her professional yet enthusiastic demeanor immediately put us at ease
...and actually turned an intimidating process into an exciting one. She sent us frequent updates, answered our questions quickly and thoroughly, coordinated with our realtor and escrow and just overall made everything run so smoothly.

THANK YOU JULIE AND TEAM for everything!
Julie not only gave us a great new rate, lower monthly payment but also the confidence that we were in great hands.

Julie is a ROCKSTAR!!!
This has been a positive experience from day one. Julie walked us through the process and was extremely communicative!
