ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Tuesday’s 98.3 TRY Social Dilemma is about credit. Check it out.
Good morning Jaime,
My name is Chelsea and I was hoping I could get your opinion on something? To make a long story short, I went out on a first date with a guy I met walking my dog the other day. Great guy, really cute and he loves dogs so what could go wrong? Well, he doesn’t have a credit card, for one. Like, when the check came, he took out cash and I didn’t think twice about it until I took out my credit card to try and go Dutch, which he refused and wanted to pay, but he told me he doesn’t even have a credit card. How can a 46-year-old man not have a credit card? He said he has a debit card and prefers to use cash. He thinks credit cards are a scam. I think in some ways he might be right, but for all I know he has really bad credit or is some sort of criminal or something. What do you think…should I trust a guy who doesn’t own or carry a credit card? Did I mention he’s cute and likes dogs? And after being divorced for awhile, it was nice to go out with someone. Anyway, what do you think? Am I being too judgmental? Help me out
Jaime said, “Personally I don’t think there’s anything strange about it. He has a debit card, he clearly has cash. I don’t know. I think some people just don’t like credit cards. But that’s me.”
What do you think? Is it a strike against this guy that he has no credit cards? Would you date him?
