New love is a wonderful, exciting thing, and you may be tempted to leave the decidedly unromantic notion of smart money management out of the equation. But if a relationship is going to last, you can’t run away from money forever.
Buying something for a loved one is fine, but love doesn’t require a massive display of your awesome purchasing power. You can very easily show how much you care without ever opening your wallet.
Valentine's Day is the second most expensive holiday of the year. Why does it cost so much to say "I love you?"
Valentine's Day is big business, to the tune of $13 billion in sales. But is it weird, or even possibly offensive, to try and cut costs on February 14?
This post is the final part in a two-part series focusing on love and money from two very different perspectives: the female point of view and the male point of view. View part one of the "She said, He said" series.
The first part of the “Love and Money: She said, He said” series focused on the traits women find attractive in a mate, specifically when it comes to finances. For part two, we’re going to take a look at the male perspective when it comes to love and money.
There are a number of studies that have been conducted on this topic, and – though not particularly surprising – significantly more men significantly more men place a higher value on attractiveness in a partner compared to women.
According to MMI’s Love and Money survey, out of six traits, women ranked attractiveness sixth, while the rankings for men are as follows:
However, various studies and research conducted on the traits men find appealing in a mate has shown that over the years, financial stability has become a more important factor for men. Researchers at the University of Iowa find that men increasingly are interested in intelligent, educated women who are financially stable.
And according to MMI’s Love and Money survey, while a “low debt level” is more important to women than men, more men consider a mate’s high debt levels to be a deal-breaker in a relationship.
These findings aren’t necessarioly surprising when considering the fact that relationships are all about give-and-take. And whether you’re male or female, you will likely be wary of entering into a relationship where you feel you may have to “give” more than the other person.
On that same note, one trait men find universally unattractive is a partner who is “needy” – and that can mean financially needy as well. Men want to know that a woman can stand on her own two feet. And that’s a great quality to have – whether you’re in a relationship or not!
