@Josh – The “fee” could simply be in terms of time such as a long application. actually, I’m curious as to why some company hasn’t thought of charging young hopefuls to apply for a job yet. But then again, there’s always the option to split finances (even for things like rent: the splurger pays for most of the extras).Maybe it’s illegal.) I’d put in a bunch of choices for current and desired level of frugality like: do you/are you interested in? Can we add a section for net worth or will the gold diggers go for the frugal boys who have 7 figs in the bank but never spend it creating bad pairings from the site? Personally, I think finding someone who is a great match is difficult enough already without additional frugality criteria.I like the idea of having ‘personal savings rate’ as a statistic rather than net worth or income level.I think that’s really what is relevant for determining if someone is going to be on the same page with you for working towards early retirement or other life goals.
My husband loves tennis and soccer, I don’t – big deal.Maybe something along the lines of, “Give an example of a time you repaired something instead of buying a new one,” or “What frugal accomplishment are you most proud of?” People reveal more of their personality in their writing, so make sure there’s opportunity to express oneself.I also noticed he lived very simply (no TV or other crap) but obviously was able to save his money to engage in lots of interesting hobbies that he enjoyed.I think it’s important to find out if the person works and how much AND what he or she does with free time!
