No credit card slut dating

How hard was it, as an established financial planner with a reputation at stake, to come clean?

Leslie Greenman: Yes, I have tried to be brutally honest about past money mistakes.

When she began to date again, she soon discovered that even with her background and expertise, getting taken advantage of is all too easy. Widowed at 35 with two young sons, financial planner Leslie Greenman relates both her biggest financial mistakes as well as dating mistakes in her new book, "Dating Our Money." Greenman likens her tales to "Sex and the City" meets financial planning.

Credit Cards.com: In "Dating Our Money," you are incredibly candid about your own money mistakes.

The online dating scene is a bit of a jungle, with people claiming to be who they aren’t (younger, mainly) and potential matches getting stuck in endless email conversations before ever meeting.

But with promising new sites launching all the time, it’s becoming easier to navigate the landscape and find the right fit for you, whether you’re looking for companionship, a lifelong lover or a fun date for the weekend.

I have a myriad of friends who complain all the time: "I am not slutty enough for New York." And I can relate.

As a person who is by nature very direct and to the point, dating is a mystery trapped in a puzzle, tucked in a fireproof safe thrown down a mineshaft. But the most distressing behavior is the casual sex hook-up mating habits that dominate New York City, a city that I adore and call my home. I make no illusions to being anything but this, and I do not judge others with different lifestyles.

If a polyamorous life of multiple lovers or a string of emotionally detached one-night stands with perfect strangers is satisfying to a person, then they should be doing exactly that.

The "man" or "woman" may ask for money to be wired to buy a plane ticket so "he" or "she" can come visit, for example.

My bank of America card just got hit with fraud detection, it was actually two things - I paid one of my bills online which wasn't an issue, however there is an outfit that does "payments" for online transactions, someone I guess swiped my card and tried to sign me up for match.com, when the outfit noticed a second transaction using my card, they alerted Bo A and declined the transaction.
