Reasons To Date A Writer (Or Not)

Thanks to Wikimedia for the image.

Writers are smart and creative, which is sexy, right?

This post listing 20 reasons to date a writer would certainly have us think so. For instance: “Writers enjoy their solitude. Unless you’re in the honeymoon phase of your relationship, you probably want at least some time to yourself and time to spend with your friends and family. Writers want time to be alone to write and think which means that you’ll get your own much-needed space as well.”

On the flip side, another blogger listed 20 reasons to not date writers, using the same catch phrases. For example: “Writers enjoy their solitude. So get lost, will you?” I also got a laugh out of: “Writers will write about you. You don’t want this. Trust me.”

Where do you weigh in? Does a literary lover occupy a special place in your life, or have you sworn off supercilious scribes?

    I’m dating a sex blogger. I risk that not only will he write about me, he will write about our sex life. It works out better than you’d think. :)

    I guess one person’s risk is another person’s benefit? Personally, I’d be honored to be someone’s muse…
