As a matter of truth dating isn’t perfect, and being with a journalist isn’t either.
Provided below are some disadvantages associated with dating a journalist;
1.They can Let You down with No Notice:
Journalism is often about what is happening at the moment. If a big story is breaking or their source has finally surfaced, then any writer worth their salt will drop everything and get to work.
The consequences for your dating life is that they might have to cancel plans at the last minute.
You could be taking things to the next level after your date or inviting them to an important event, but if their office calls, they need to take it.
The news doesn’t stop, so neither will the journalist you are dating. It can be frustrating to have to work to their schedule so much, and it still means you have to cancel every now and then.
2.They Are Always Working:
Even if a journalist hasn’t been called away to report on a big story, it can be difficult for them to switch off their inquisitive mindset. If their ears prick up at a certain detail, you might find them following their nose to get a story.
They’ll start asking questions and wanting to know more about random things because that’s how their brain works.
At the same time, whenever they tell people that they are a journalist, they’ll inevitably get story ideas thrown at them. One in every dozen might be interesting, but most of the time, they’ll be looking for tactful ways to turn people down. That is when they aren’t answering questions about the famous people they’ve met.
3.They have a Critical Eye
Writing an article or a commentary piece involves sifting through the facts and scrutinizing everything. Many journalists will have written reviews at some point in their careers, which means they analyze just about anything they come across.
Whether it is the movie you see, a political documentary on TV, or the restaurant for your date, you can expect a journalist to have an opinion. All that analyzing can tend to turn a critical eye into a negative view of the world.
Not every journalist will be punctual, just as not every one of them will always have work on the brain. However, it is useful to know these common traits that lend themselves to the profession. In fact, some of these attributes are brought out by the daily work of being a journalist.
When you’re in a relationship with someone who writes articles for a living, you can expect them to have a way with words. This is great for interesting stories and for stimulating conversation. On the flip side, they might tend to analyze everything with a critical approach.
Perhaps the biggest downside is when they have to rush off to cover a big story. There are plenty of positives to having a journalist in your life. They’re energetic, capable, and knowledgeable, which are wonderful attributes for the person standing by your side in everything you do. Their thick skin will mean they are direct and truthful with you, and their creativity and intelligence will win you over.
