Credit score dating?
According to a NY Times article published yesterday and written by Jessica Silver-Greenberg (who graduated from Princeton in 2004), the latest trend in dating is asking one’s date what his or her credit score is.
[The credit score] is so widely used that it has also become a bigger factor in dating decisions, sometimes eclipsing more traditional priorities like a good job, shared interests and physical chemistry. That’s according to interviews with more than 50 daters across the country, all under the age of 40.
Is this for real? It has the feel of one of those NY Times articles where the author asks a few of her friends for some anecdotes and then pretends that it’s some big trend that she uncovered.
