Its probably (hopefully) not too obvious in this blog that Iâ€™m single (and as it happens female). Iâ€™m not looking for a boyfriend at the moment, although if one turns up that would be ok. But I woulnâ€™t want my fiscal stability upset by mingling my finances with someone irresponsible. Is it ok to weed out potential partners based on the state of their finances?
On reflection, I think that its unlikely that Iâ€™d be attracted to someone who was truly reckless â€“ in money or other matters â€“ Iâ€™m just not that adventurous. On the other hand, asking someone about their credit card bills on a first date is probably a significant enough social faux pas that there wouldnâ€™t be a second date.
They say that you canâ€™t change a man (or woman for that matter) so Iâ€™m stuck with hoping that any future contenders are financially stable â€“ or at least not going to drag me down with them.
