Dating A Writer

I’ve been a writer for as long as I can remember being able to pick up a pencil.  Like most of my talents and/or hobbies, it’s something I have a love-hate sort of view of.

Anyway. Long story short, I’ve found a list of reasons why dating a writer is pretty awesome from time to time. No really!


  • Writers will romance you with words.

    This is true, although, in the heat of battle, this could backfire on you. Just a heads up. We are good with creative vocabulary & metaphors.

  • Writers will write about you.

    Every man I’ve ever dated has hated this.

  • Writers will take you to interesting events.

    I agree. Of course, naturally I think most events I attend are ‘interesting experiences’ merely for the joy of living. C’est la vie.

  • Writers will remind you that money doesn’t matter so much.

    True. This is why I consistently tell people “the most expensive thing in this living room is this $80 framed Magritte painting!” or “You like my shoes? Thanks, they were $4! Nice, right?” It’s a flaw I have.

  • Writers will acknowledge you and dedicate things to you.

    Everything I dedicate is dedicated to my dog. Sorry.

  • Writers will offer you an interesting perspective on things.

    This is true. There was a movie that portrayed this once. Something about a paperbag floating in the air… etc etc.

  • Writers are smart.

    Good luck trying to outsmart us. And as soon as you think you have, well, hey. Let’s be honest: we’re just being nice.

  • Writers are really passionate.

    Oh the blood that flows in my veins, highlighting words in the dictionary for fun.

  • Writers can think through their feelings.

    So, you didn’t call me back. All right. I’ll write a poem consisting of only metaphors about your eyes. Then a haiku, referencing your death. Then when you text me, I’ll just be sweet as pie like always.

  • Writers enjoy their solitude.

    You’re welcome.

  • Writers are creative.

    A double-edged sword. But hey, with all the beauty there is in the world, how can life be looked at without a creative eye? I’ve wondered.

  • Writers wear their hearts on their sleeves.

    I have a lot of worn out sleeves.

  • Writers will teach you cool new words.

    This goes back to that whole “highlighting words in the dictionary for fun” thing.

  • Writers may be able to adjust their schedules for you.

    Writing is something that can come on at the spur of the moment, much like hemorrhoids. So be prepared to occupy yourself if the moment should strike. But hey, we need our time & space to write too. So there’s that. Once again, you’re welcome.

  • Writers can find 1000 ways to tell you why they like you.

    Whether it’s the oak tree leaves falling down in autumn as we lay on a blanket or the winter sunset as we drive somewhere shitty & it brings back all reality and beauty- well like I said: we’re good with the metaphors.

  • Writers communicate in a bunch of different ways.

    I’m a terrible phone person admittedly. Everyone has their downfalls.

  • Writers can work from anywhere.

    Unfortunately writing doesn’t make money. Or much money. Unless you’re good. Well. Whatever.

  • Writers are surrounded by interesting people.

    Have you met my friends? Obviously, this is true.

  • Writers are easy to buy gifts for.

    Post-it notes of various colors. Sharpies. AMAZING INK PENS. Yes, this is true.

  • Writers are sexy.

    What can I say?
