Dear Michelle Valentine,

I am a professional working career girl, with a great apartment and a nice car. I have a little bit of money in my savings account, and I don’t spend money foolishly.

The problem is, I’m dating a guy who is in debt.

He has so many great qualities, but his money problems really scare me!

Should I continue seeing him?



Dear Andrea,

The issue isn’t the dollar amount he has in the bank, but his attitude toward money.

Questions to ask yourself… then ask him as a casual conversation:

Is he in debt because he recently graduated from law school…

or because he just took a one-month “vacation” to the Bahamas?

Is it because he just isn’t making much money at this point in life…

or does he spend every dollar from his paycheck on partying?

Is he aspiring to have a fantastic earning…

or does he simply not have the desire to advance himself?

Delving into the money issue is not shallow; it is smart.

As the saying goes, “Money can’t buy you love, but love doesn’t pay the bills.”
