Dating and money problems

I’ve been dating someone for a couple months now and, like a lot of people, he is experiencing financial difficulties.

He just recently began sharing these financial problems with me and I know it’s the reason why he’s been asking me out less than when we first started dating.

My research shows that 7 out of 10 couples report that money causes tension in their relationship.

Fearful of reliving the mistakes of her painful past, she drew up her must-have list of qualities she wanted in a new partner.

At the very top was a non-negotiable item that she underlined, circled, and marked with stars in the margin: !

That may be why so many couples avoid the topic entirely - particularly in the early stages of a relationship.

Ignoring the topic would have been the easy way out for Pam and Larry, who met on Senior People and now are married.

I am fine having dates that are economical and have let him know this.
