Over the past few years my dating life has been pretty stagnant, I have had a few relationships here and there but nothing that seemed to pan out the way I pictured in my head. The most recent endeavor caused me to think about how "Strict" I will be when it comes to buying into what I believe about money. The guy I was seeing, based everything on credit scores and spoke the words I hate to hear " you need credit to live" Of course you do when you have over 100k in student loans, seems like you "lived" pretty high on the hog there eh? Don't get me wrong I know law school is expensive but I still don't buy the fact that you must go knee deep into debt to get an education.
The guy had a few other money issues that caused red flags to go up all over the place like gambling, and telling me he was going to buy a 200k house in Michigan. Crazy right? Needless to say he got the boot, not because of his money sense but because of his character over all.
Truth told I am hoping when I go to the live event this month that I can meet some people "aka men" that have a bit of money sense. Its hard dating having all these "stipulations" but I do believe that all my requirements do line up with the word of God and I am not to be accepting any thing less than what God has planned for me.
So when it comes down to it Dave didn't kill my dating life, he gave me a few extra tools to make sure I am wise about deciding who I want to spend the rest of my life with. I am willing to wait it out for the right guy, and I truly believe he is coming and he will be all I ask for and more.
Is there any rules you have in place that kills your dating life?
