three signs he sucks With money
1. He doesn’t want to talk about it.
“If he’s not open about what he wants or does with his money, that’s a red flag,” says Goldman. “Not talking about these things can breed secrecy and resentment.”
2. He asks you to cosign a loan early in your relationship.
If his credit isn’t good enough to get his own loan, that’s a bad sign. So this one is a big no. “Try to think of it like a business relationship,” says Goldman. “The stakes are too high for you to put your own credit on the line, and you need to protect yourself.”
3. He’s balling… out of control.
“If he shops exclusively on credit cards or has a majorly financed car, tread carefully,” says Torabi. Ask how he swings such big expenses. This applies if he’s giving money away too. Generosity is attractive, but flagrant disregard for a budget? Not so much. If he always splurges on bottle service or covers dinner for the table just to impress, simply ask why, Rapley says. “Encouraging him to think about the motivation behind his behavior may lead to a new approach.”
