That thing you buy and don’t tell your parents about

We'll ask about it in another round of Financial Face-Off. Plus: We need your help with a new story.

Jack Nixon spent his freshman year of college nursing a one-sided crush on his neighbor in the dorms, Joey Lyons, who wasn’t out yet.

Now Nixon and Lyons are a match. They’ve been dating three years, they just moved in together and they’re starting their careers in Los Angeles. But are they a financial match, too? This week we find out when they play our favorite game: Financial Face-Off! We’ll ask about date night budgets, secret splurges and more.

But first: We’re working on a new story all about the things we do to fit in with people in our class, and we need your help. Drop us a line.
