My Date & The Housing Bubble

I usually don't talk about my personal life on this blog, but on my date tonight we ended up talking about the housing bubble. I related some of my knowledge about the housing market. She went ahead and said flat out that people will be burned from the it. She gets points in my book for being aware of the housing bubble and realizing the precarious nature of this speculative episode. :-) ( Please note I will not date housing flippers and speculators.)


  1. People get more points in my book if they are homeowners and they acknowledge the housing bubble.

  2. Sometimes, I can't tell if people really agree with my bubble theory, or if they're just humoring me to be polite.

  3. ScottC, we know you already.

    There is no housing bubble in Texas because the growth laws there make sense. This is not the case in California, where "liberals" somehow are conservative about growth. LOL

  4. It's wise not to date people whose economic sensibilities are different from yours: supposedly money is the biggest thing couples argue about. My husband and I weren't completely in agreement financially when we met and started dating, but we were close enough, and over the years we've both gotten more convinced that saving money and staying out of debt, like our grandparents did, is the way to go.

    I've seen a lot of people who get married without really thinking about the financial aspect of their relationship, and it can become a big deal, unless one comes around to the other's way of thinking.

    Even if you're not thinking about marriage just yet (and after a first date, I hope you're not! ;-)), I think you're doing well to weed out the people you definitely don't want to be involved with. :-)
