You don’t choose who you fall in love with however when it comes to your finances don’t let your emotions get the better of you. These are some of the signs that your man is with you for that ka-ching.
He’ll pay in the beginning
This is the stage where he wants you to fall deeply for him. He will pay for dates just to elude you into thinking that he’s got the money. Months down the line he starts “forgetting” his wallet knowing that you’re going to pay the bill and 10 others to follow.
He gets too nice on pay days
You could have had a big fight the night before, but upon realising that the next day is your pay day he suddenly plays happy couple.
He has “expensive” taste
Dating and relationship coach Nicole Johnson says if your man is forever on your case about going shopping together and expensive holidays that he won’t pay for then you’re being taken for a ride.
She suggests that you don’t bring your entire pay cheaque to shopping malls as you’ll end buying him expensive gifts you hadn’t budgeted for.
Forever “borrowing” money
There’s no harm in helping your partner out time and again however if he’s always expecting you to bail him out then you’ve got yourself a chancer of man. He borrows but you know you’re never getting that money back.
He knows your pin code more than your cell number
Long term relationships come with trust and you tend to be more open about a lot of things, finances included. If he still scrolls through his phone to check your number but punches the bank pin from the top of his head then you’re dating a financial opportunist.
