Dating: Do you ask about their finances?

What would you do if the person you are dating are showing signs of financial instability? Maybe you notice their lack of frugality or their excessive spending. Or maybe you are with them when their credit card was declined.

I read somewhere about a young woman who was on a first date with a guy and his card was declined. She didn’t judge him by this incident and they are now married. If she dumped him because of this embarrassing snafu, she could have thrown away her chance of happiness!

So what is the best approach in paying attention to your date’s money management? Is it something you should inquire about? If you notice something awry, do you bring it up?

Do you (or should you) ask about a person’s financial plan when you are dating? Should you wait until you are in a relationship to bring it up or would that be too late?

How important is it to date someone who is smart about money?

Just curious: What would you do if you went on a date and their credit card was declined?

Leggs/Randyt thing is he SHOULD have used the darn thing! Erectile dysfunction is a mutter. :(
bless his heart maybe he should look into getting some prescriptions filled or buy it black market.

Leggs from what little I’ve read about viagra a man can stay “up” for up to four hours.

“the stranger the bed, the stiffer the wood.”

Randy — Yeah, but somehow I get the feeling that a strange bed at, say, a hostel somewhere wouldn’t have quite the same aphrodisiac effect on Mrs. Swiss as a suite at an all-inclusive resort. Just a hunch… :lol:

@PR ~ doesn’t mean anything, I suppose. Every time I hear viagra I think of him. He’s old. I don’t want to do old simply because it’s offered.

Somehow I’m not getting this same read. Anyway I see we’re clowning. Viagra huh? I think when you reach a point of being dependant on that kind of stuff and the tunker is tanked out you should leave well enough alone…but that’s just me and what I think
