  • I think he is a freeloader and you should ditch him. But that is just my opinion. Good luck.
  • I think RUN !
  • if you give him any money you will not be getting it back - ever. Assuming it's not too late already, tell him that if you had it, you would gladly give it to him but sadly, you are broke - so you can't.
  • i would wonder how many women have already given him a thousand dollars.
  • NO NO NO NO NO!!!!! Never give a man you are dating money! If he is so low he would take money from you, a single mother, then he is NOT WORTH HAVING AROUND!!! He should be giving YOU money, not taking yours. And please trust me--"when he can" means NEVER!
  • Drop that like a Hot Potato. Has he lost his mind?
  • I'll see you on Judge Judy!!! LOL!
  • the fool has got some nerve.
  • Ooo! Lend it to him! He probably wants to buy you a wedding ring! Yeah right.
  • I think you're both going to be on Judge Judy in about a year.
  • Find a real man.
  • Well, it depends. If you are having sex with him, and then YOU pay HIM $1000, I would say that man is a genius.
  • everyone says judge judy but... i'm thinking Judge Joe Brown don't know why lol
  • It's a set-up. Run!
  • LOL I would tell him Yeah! You give me $2000 and I will loan you $1000 and you can pay me back when you can? He he
  • Tell him to visit a bank. The single mother is not a Savings & Loan.
  • I'd doubt his character big time. And it's very unlikely I would want anymore to do with him.
  • uh, no! That would raise a huge red flag!
  • What do you think of a single mother who decides to give $1000 to a man she's only dated 2 months? and says: "Pay me back whenever you can!"
  • I would think that man is selfish!!!
  • When he can? Say goodbye to Mr. Womanizer. Why did he need the money, you did not say?
  • I think of lend something from him until he pays you back money. is that right?
  • I think it's a huge turn off whether your a single mom or not, I don't like people like that.
  • He has no right to ask you for money unless you're married. If you saw him struggling and offered to help, then it'd be a different matter entirely, but he shouldn't just ask you for $1,000. I'd be suspicious of someone who had the gall to do that.
  • I think he wants to be one of your children.
  • Can you spell "loser"?
  • Go for it, what do you have to lose? Well, other than $1000 and your dignity... :)
  • I wouldn't lend my best friend that much money. Sounds like he is scamming you.
  • I think this is a guy who doesn't have his act together. You should move on and count yourself lucky that you didn't find out he was a loser after you married him. No self respecting person, Male or Female should ever ask for money from a single person raising children. If you loose your job tomorrow, whos going to help support your kids? Not Mr. I Can't Even Manage To Support My Broke Ass!
  • Hurry, hurry! Run as fast as your feet will carry you in the opposite direction he is.
  • I WOULD THINK I'M BEENING PUNKED...
  • All he wants is money. See http://archive.bobandtom.com/av/kiss_your_ass_goodbye2.mov (requires Quicktime). To be honest, though, YOU know him MUCH better than any of us do. It's entirely up to you. I wouldn't, but...
  • you are not alone this is a very common thing, it's called a con game. a guy (or women) cozies up to someone for a few weeks or months, until they are deep enough in your life and then they ask you to help them out with some cash, co sign a loan etc. if you fall for it, depending on how brazen they are they either disappear or try to get more money from you, then disappear. DO NOT LOAN MONEY to ANYONE you don't TRUST completely and have not known for at least ONE YEAR! even then 1. don't loan more then you can afford to lose 2. lay out the terms of the loan in writing with repayment times and both your signatures. 3. keep the loan professional (don't let them wiggle out of paying or accept partial payment now with the rest "some day") . . it sounds to me like you need to kick this leech to the curb
  • I would think he had a lot of nerve to ask me for money especially when we had only been dating for 2 months. I would not like any guy asking me for money at all even after years of being together. If I want to give him money or buy him something, I will do it on my own. This guy sounds like a big time user and loser. I'm glad you kicked him to the curb! I wish you the best. :-)
  • LOL ... Do you ever watch any of the daytime court programs such as Judge mathis, Judge Joe Brown , People's Court, or Judge Judy ? You'd know the answer to this one ; if you did ... Tell him "SORRY" ; you can't do it .... if he leaves; you are better off without him ... +5
  • Tell him to take a hike, you've a child to take care and support you don't need a leach too.
  • Get the Monopoly money out as a joke as obviously you should never agree to that one. He is a fraud and will not pay you back. If money is that important to him, let him borrow it from close friends, relatives or even a bank but think of your children first! You do not want to deprive your children of what they have the rights to or even worse, end up being unable to meet their needs. Let his feet do the walking if he can't accept "No!" as an answer.
  • If he wanted $1000 bad enough, he would find a way to get it, one way or another. It isn't your responsibility to get it for him.
  • Red flag!!
  • 1) My first reaction would be to run away, and the comments threads that I read also confirm this. There would be two conditions to have so that giving him money could be justified: - you can afford to lose the money (being a single mother does not mean necessarily that you are poor) - he can give you a very good reason why he needs the money, the best would be some credible possibility to make money out of it (return on investment). 2) "Romance fraud, when fraudsters seduce people only to target their money, is an old-fashioned type of fraud. It received high attention in Sweden around 1950 when a man named Gustaf Raskenstam had relationships with more than a hundred lonely women, and had been engaged to many of them, often several at the same time. He was eventually imprisoned for fraud. His contact ads usually had the headline "Sun and spring" ("sol och vår" in Swedish). This type of behaviour has since been called "sol och vårande" in Swedish. The traditional romance scam has now moved into internet dating sites. The con actively cultivates a romantic relationship which often involves promises of marriage. However, after some time it becomes evident that this Internet "sweetheart" is stuck in his home country, lacking the money to leave the country and thus unable to be united with the mark. The scam then becomes an advance-fee fraud or a check fraud. A wide variety of reasons can be offered for the trickster's lack of cash, but rather than just borrow the money from the victim (advance fee fraud), the con man normally declares that they have checks which the victim can cash on their behalf and remit the money via a non-reversible transfer service to help facilitate the trip (check fraud). Of course, the checks are forged or stolen and the con man never makes the trip: the hapless victim ends up with a large debt and an aching heart. This scam can be seen in the movie Nights of Cabiria."

  • Stop dating him!!! He wants only your money...
  • He's a parasite... get away from him
  • RUN!!!
  • A good scam artist is what I would call him.
  • I'm tempted to say he is a moron. If he needs $1000 after a few months of dating then he will be living off you forever. Money doesn't define love, but if he is mooching off you this early in the relationship, then expect it to continue into the future. Can you live with that and do you have enough cash to allow it? Its difficult, but I would simply say I do not have it spare and see what happens. If he continues to require it, chuck him out as he clearly will not be a good future provider.
