On the Money

‘Credit score dating’ gains popularity

SAN DIEGO – Move over “E-Harmony” and “Match.com.” There is a new player in the dating game called “CreditScoreDating.com,” and it’s based on the potential mate’s ability to pay their bills.

Recent studies have shown more and more young people are inquiring about a potential mate’s financial situation before they get into a serious relationship.

Hellen Chen, known as “the matchmaker of the century” said she is not surprised singles are paying attention to credit scores.

“They are probably thinking, ‘I better keep a good score so I have a good chance to meet a handsome boy or nice woman’,” Chen said. “I thought it was quite incredible on how people develop short cuts to try and match someone based on credit score.”

FOX 5 posted the question on our Facebook page, asking if people would date or not date someone based on their credit score. Here are some of the responses:

“Maybe if I found out they had a horrible one. Money issues are a big deal,” said Ginny Dunaway Bretsynder.

“I would go out with someone, but not based on their credit score, that is just mean,” Christopher Ibarra said.

“I think it`s pretty shallow,” said Courtney Chipman. “I mean, I think a credit score says a lot about a person, but people go through rough patches.”

Chen said honesty is important in dating and if financial future is a big deal, then it’s important to establish his or her situation early.

She also admitted a credit score isn’t going to substitute other important factors in dating like personality, humor and appearance.

“I don’t think people should be scare about it. They should have self-confident and learn to love. That is an ability and has nothing to do with your score,” Chen said.

The website that matches people based on credit score is now up to 10,000 members.

    Did you guys do any research on this article at all? CreditScoreDating is a scam site, their members are fake, and they try and get people to sign up for paid memberships despite there being no real humans on the site. The majority of those 10K members are not real and are just used to swindle people into thinking it is legit…this is crazy. Once it was reported last month most people quickly researched it and found out it was a scam…my god, do some research…

    While people utilized to whisper when talking in regards
    to the undead for concern with bringing them out in the open, all caution has gone to
    the wind as fanatics prove to the world how they love the undead through their
    tees. Families who have money will bury the body under a stone slab so our bodies
    can’t be removed. If one does find that you simply simply must enter a big city – Your old co-workers are not your friends: If by some chance someone happens to run into a vintage co-worker that you accustomed to chat to regarding the daily events and the way much you dislike your boss, realize that he no longer has an interest in small talk unless it requires brains or eating people, go ahead and forgo the last pleasantries and either run or eliminate him.
