When it comes to finding true love, the most important characteristic isn’t good looks, a sense of humor, or being fashionable. Apparently, women find guys who have good credit to be sexy. That’s right, women are attracted to men who are in stable financial situations and see them to be sexier than 36-year-olds who are part-time Uber drivers and living in their mom’s basement and driving a hooked up Nissan. Mind-blowing, I know.
According to Bloomberg, a study of 2,000 online daters found that good credit scores are sexy. The recent study from Discover Financial Services and Match Media Group, parent of Tinder and other dating sites, found that “financial responsibility” was ranked as a very or extremely important quality in a potential mate by 69% of the respondents. That was higher than a sense of humor (67%), attractiveness (51%), ambition (50%), courage (42%), and modesty (39%). Those surveyed said a good credit score was associated with being responsible, trustworthy, and smart. Of the respondents, 58% of those surveyed said a good credit score was more appealing than a nice car. Put your 820 credit rating as your Tinder profile right now. But it just wasn’t women who found financial stability to be a turn-on, men also found a gal with a great credit score to be a perfect catch. When it came to financial responsibility, 77% of females and 61% of men found this quality to be sexy AF.
