I believe that it would not help Romeo to be an authorized user on her boyfriend’s card- she would only be helping him to build his credit. However, I have found that all of the credit cards where I am a joint account owner show up on my credit report. So, if Romeo and her boyfriend open an account together, that might help her. Better trust that boyfriend, though- a lot of people get burned when an ex-boy/girlfriend goes nuts with a joint credit card!!
