A lot of relationships, and not necessarily romantic ones, spoil because of financial conflicts and so it is important to identify and resolve these while dating. Here are financial warning signs that may have you rethinking your relationship.
1. They don’t tell you where they get their money from
You don’t have to keep quiet and close your eyes and just enjoy the trips and the gifts. You need to know where all the money is coming from. What work do they do that they make so much or even so little? Is what they’re doing sustainable? Forever is a long time.
2. Refuses to split money on outings
And this point goes for both men and women. If by the 4th, 5th and 6th dates they still don’t even offer to split charges, it tells you what you’re in for in the long run. Are you always going to have to foot the bill? Are you okay with that?
3. They generally lie about money
They lie about how much they make, how much they spend, they’re probably even lying about the debts they owe. Can you live with financial deception in your partner?
4. Dictates your financial behavior
Manipulative people should be avoided at all cost. These ones will ask you if they’re working isn’t enough for both of you and will convince you to stop working even though you love what you do. They dictate how much you should save or spend and where you should invest. If you don’t do what they ask or “suggest”, they sulk or become violent.
5. They like to borrow
They always don’t have money and that’s not the only problem. The problem is the fact that they cannot live within their means. They’re always borrowing to offset their debts. They never have money for themselves or you. Are you okay with knowing that at any moment, someone will come and harass them for their money?
