Credit Card Dating…Really.
Really, this is what it has come to. Now you have to have a good credit score to get lucky. So that’s the new opening line: “Hey what’s your credit score?” What ever happened to “Hey what’s your sign?”, or “Hey, do you believe in love at first sight, or should I walk by again”?, or “Hey, do I know you? Cause you look a lot like my next girlfriend”., or “Hey, are you a parking ticket? Because you’ve got FINE written all over you”. I could keep going but I think you get the idea.
So if you are going to embrace this new millenium dating philosophy here is a handy guide to credit score dating from Yahoonews.com:
-800-850 is “MARRIAGE POTENTIAL DING DING DING”
-750-800 is “take him/her home to Mom”
-700-750 is a “fixer-upper”
-650-700 is “fun for a night out, maybe, but bring cash”
-600-650 is “keep lookin’!”
anything below 600 is “RUN because they won’t even get a car loan, probably, and how embarrassing will that be at the PTA meetings?”
-200 is “this person is just pulling your leg and is really royalty”
