Worry about failing to spot financial red flags in your potential relationship? Now there’s an online dating site that tries to match you with a partner based on your credit score. CreditScoreDating.com helps financially-minded individuals to find each other. Its mission is to help you find an enjoyable yet serious dating experience.
So what’s good about using credit score as a basis to find a potential partner? Credit Score Dating says: “Credit scores are derived from a complex formula that weighs factors such as outstanding debt, payment history and new credit lines. The three-digit number is used to predict the likelihood of delinquency on obligations from credit card bills to a mortgage. Knowing your partner’s credit situation helps members prepare for their futures with open eyes. For many singles, bad credit can be a deal breaker when finding love. A recent study reveals that 20% of men and 30% of women between the ages 21- 34, say they won’t marry someone with a poor credit score. Most respondents also say money management skills are just as important as looks when deciding whether someone is worth pursuing. While 57% of men say that credit scores play into their dating decisions, a staggering 75% of women said they consider the numerical rating. Within the last 6 years, dating based on financial stability and credit score ratings has become very popular in the American culture.”
Credit Score Dating allows members looking for serious dating to join for free and find compatible mates. It offers five tiers of account type, ranging from a limited free account to a $109.99 elite card member account. Founder Niem Green created the website to fill in the niche dating scene where credit scores are an indicator of how well someone handles commitment and honors agreements.
Money is the leading cause of stress in relationships. Credit Score Dating hopes to connect users with similar financial views and money value. By choosing a potential mate based on credit scores, money fights and money problems in your life should be minimal.
