Have You Ever Dated A Writer?

I can’t remember exactly who posted this on FaceBook, but it’s a great article πŸ™‚

20 Great Things About Dating A Writer by Kathryn Vercillo. The link to Kathryn’s site doesn’t seem to be working so you can read it here at Angelo Ricci’s site πŸ™‚

I’ve never dated a writer, but I am one, so surely, all those things are what are great about being with me? That’s right isn’t it? *sniggers* I found myself going through the list going, yep…yep…yep lol.


So seriously, have you ever dated a writer? What’s good about dating you? What makes us so goddam special? πŸ˜‰ Let’s big ourselves up today, I could do with a boost πŸ™‚

  1. The thing I like about writers is the skill of observing: those nuances of human nature, a great line of overheard dialogue, the way someone throws their foot slightly to the side with each step and we can see the worn outer edges of their shoes. It’s great to have another writer to talk to…dating or not.


  2. Yes! Go writers! Er, just one thing, Vikki. If it’s true that, “Writers are sexy. There is a reason that people have fantasies about the school librarian. Male or female, those bookish types are hot hot hot.” Why is it that I can’t find a fella?


  3. I laughed when I read the title of this post. I haven’t gone into the link yet because my computer is playing up. It took me ten minutes to get into your post – I was thinking of giving up but persevered – you’re special πŸ™‚ I’ve got another couple of posts I want to check out tonight, so I’ll probably be sitting her until morning waiting for them to open (or I may just go to bed and try again tomorrow). This comment is getting long and boring, but hey! I’m here now – may as well make the most of it – woo hoo

    To answer your question: I’d never date a writer – I find it hard enough putting up with myself! πŸ˜€


    • Oh no Dianne, sorry to hear about your computer honey. Hope you get it sorted out soon πŸ™‚

      Ha ha ha, awwwww *blush* thanks for persevering πŸ™‚

      Good luck tonight! If we don’t hear from you tomorrow we’ll know you’ve been up all night πŸ˜‰

      Ha ha ha, good answer!



  4. I haven’t dated a writer before (Although a few writers have wanted to date me lol). I always thought it wouldn’t be a good idea – with the competition and that annoying-ness of being with someone who is too much like you.

    I’m sure it’s not always the case, though. There’s so many different types of writers out there. We’re awesome people, aren’t we?


    • Ooooooo, Sara, do tell more!!!!! πŸ˜‰

      Oh definitely! And just think of all those benefits that someone who is with you gets! πŸ™‚

      I know a couple of “writer” couples who share an office and each have their own desks….sweet πŸ™‚ Perhaps go for one who writes a different genre? see Patsys comment above.



      • I’ll be sure to check it out! Good point about writers in different genres. I did meet a guy I’d consider more my type who is a writer. I found out that even jocks can be writers! lol πŸ˜‰


  5. My husband always beats me at Scrabble! I get the best words, but he is brilliant at finding places where he can get points for more than one word and I’m always too busy inside my own head to notice!

  7. I love this! I’d love to date a writer… I keep going to writing events in the hope. Well, not strictly true, I go anyway but that would be a bonus. πŸ™‚

    Coincidentally I’ve just booked Kathryn in as my 151st author spotlight and 738 interviewee. πŸ™‚


    • Thanks for stopping by Morgen πŸ™‚

      Well, I’ve just read a piece by Jonathan Franzen where he attributed his marriage breakdown to the fact that he and his wife were both writers, so perhaps it’s not such a good idea after all πŸ˜‰

      Oooo, thanks for the heads up, I’ll look out for her πŸ™‚



      • I think it was more to do with the fact that she was the more talented writer, whereas he was the one who got the publishing deal and became commercially successful. He felt, in his words “very very guilty” Whoops!



      • That’s bound to happen. He shouldn’t feel guilty. He got the right thing in front of the right person at the right time. Out of any profession another writer should understand and be proud. Clearly the wrong woman for the right man at the wrong time. πŸ™‚
