How Your Credit Score Can Influence Your Love Life

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) —  Bad credit score can hurt your chances in the dating world. Mike Cetera a personal loans and credit analyst for Bankrate.com, which conducted the survey says one question was aimed at finding out if credit score matters.

“If you were to learn the credit score of someone you were interested in dating would that impact your desire to date that person and what we found out that 38% of people surveyed said yes in fact if I learned someone’s credit score it would have an impact,” Cetera said.

The survey also found that more than 30-percent of people surveyed have never reviewed their credit history, while that does sound high, he says it’s actually fallen in recent years and it could represent older and younger respondents who aren’t interested in getting a car loan or mortgage and probably don’t need to know their score.
