(Cosmopolitan) Believe it or not, you can find out a surprising amount about your new beau by tracking how he manages his money:

He nickel-and-dimes on dates

Going dutch is one thing, but if he's penny-pinching over the change when you split the bill, this guy is fastidious to a fault. And even though he'll probably always call when he says he will, you won't be seduced by his spontaneity.

He charges everything

This guy is ambitious and craves status. The good news: He probably has the drive to reach his financial goals. The caveat: If he seems disorganized or unreliable, then he could find himself buried under serious credit-card debt before he gets there.

He pays with cash

If your new man always antes up with cash, he's independent and self-sufficient. And while that's a relief because it means he's no mama's boy, the downside is that it also means he might be a little conservative. Translation: He's no Jedi... sorry... risk taker.

His wallet is dry

Unless he has a really good excuse for his perpetual cash crisis, this guy probably depends on other people to take care of him, which isn't all that cool.
