My Date Believed in the Florida Housing Bubble

Last Saturday night, I had a wonderful date with a woman who grew up in Southern Florida. On first dates I do not mention my 'radical' housing bubble beliefs. I told her about the young married couple who both went into real estate in St. Petersburg - Tampa, Florida area despite having degrees in something unrelated. I explained how it is unwise to have two married people pursuing a new career in the same unstable field.

She said there is a housing bubble in Florida. Right on! She got points in my book. :-)


  1. Did you slap Rosy Palm after she said that?

  2. Congratulations! Finding a woman who agrees with you about the housing bubble is important. I have heard of/met lots of guys who end up buying a house because their wife pressured them to do so. My wife has probably been more militant than me about avoiding buying a house, and I am very happy with the results. (I think we are much better off). Good luck to you.

  3. Congrats!

    She sounds like a smart girl. Your radical belief is sounding less extreme with every passing week in the media. ;) Even friends here in SoCal are now starting to admit that there just might be a problem with a housing bubble.

    Keep us posted.
