So the new fella you’ve been dating has it going on. He’s cute, he’s fun, he’s sweet, and he has a job (as far as you can tell…). That’s all good and dandy, but before you fall too deep, our friends over at Black Enterprise say it’s important to figure out if your new mate is going to be a monetary burden on you and your relationship. And what that means is, if homeboy’s credit is jacked, you should expect that a lot of the things you will need in the future if you move forward as a couple (including cars, a home, etc.) will be on your back if you have a great credit score. This as opposed to equally sharing in the expenses you will accrue.

According to the list compiled by Black Enterprise, things you need to keep a close eye on in order to figure out your man’s financial stability include where the man lives, and even his cellular phone company. Crazy, right!? The seven signs they offer you are just ways to determine if you’re taking on a brotha with a sad credit score so you can know what to expect, and if you want to expect it. And love, what’s love got to do with it!? Just kidding!
