"Perfect 10? Never mind that - ask her for her credit score"

    New York Times "trend" piece on asking for credit scores of potential mates:


    Interesting stuff, though I'm not sure if it's really a trend or not. You know how the Times can be.

    That said, I can see how a good credit score can act as a rough approximation of a person's maturity and responsibility. I've been really working on mine. Rightly or wrongly, I feel like a high score will be a pretty nice indication that I've moved beyond certain youthful indiscretions. (But, sorry, ladies, I'm taken.)

    I'm not so sure I would worry about my potential mate's credit score if we were dating in our early 20s. Or even mid-20s. Thirties? Forties? Yeah, probably. Not sure I'd be as forward as the people in this article, though.

    I don't know anyone who uses credit score as a barometer to find a date. Maybe people just don't talk about it, but I get the sense this is one of NYT trends that isn't.

    If he or she is a 6, instead of a 10, is a higher credit score required before continuing the relationship?

    This was one of the people the Times surveyed.

    We should just have a running thread of the dopey things the NY Times calls a 'trend'.


    This guy slept with 30 pillows, but his hair in a "man bun" and shaved his pubes to keep up with all the NY Times 'trends'.

    These fuckers too. Although, again, the guy on the left is Klosterman.

  7. So let me get this straight:
    You're a swimsuit model with 36C ice cream tits, an oral fixation and THE sole heir to the Jack Daniels distillery ... But your credit score is 380?

    Yeah, sorry.

    Oh, that quarter I bounced off your ass ... keep it.

    Pretty sure a sole heir to the Jack Daniels distillery wouldn't know of, nor need, her credit score until way older.

    There's no sex appeal in a bankruptcy.

    It's a shame I'm married. And short. And fat. And balding. And otherwise ugly. Cause my credit score is higher than Snoop Dog in a Taco Bell parking lot.

    I agree. Most of my 20-something friends have no idea what their credit scores are.

    Well, your hairless faces are disgusting to me too.
