The Ups and Downs of Dating a Journalist

 

The Ups and Downs of Dating a Journalist

If you’re reading this article you’re probably a.) Dating a journalist, b.) Wanting to date a journalist or c.) You are a journalist and want to know what others think about dating you (and of course you want to know if this article holds true and factual for journalism and self validation purposes).

So let’s start with the basics. What is a Journalist? Well of course we already know the literal meaning, but you’re probably wondering what “sort” of person a journalist is. For the benefit of definition (and adding more words to my word count), a journalist may either be doing one of the five types of journalism mainly: Investigative, News, Reviews, Columns or Feature Writing.

But what is a journalist like? Well we’ll go in depth into that later on. First I would describe what comes at the top of my head when I hear the word JOURNALIST. A journalist (well at least for me) is a creative, intelligent and sexy person with sometimes crazy thoughts, feelings and idiosyncrasies. They maybe people who can multitask really well (e.g. talking to you and yet thinking about the article they will be writing later on). Journalists are passionate people who can sometimes be introverts and extroverts at the same time.

There is an organized chaotic picture that comes into my head when I see the word “journalist” in my mind’s eye. For the benefit of you guys looking into this page let me try to put it in a more ordered list.

 

List 1: The Ups of Dating a Journalist

  1. They are extremely good conversationalists – They can talk about massive sorts of topics in different fields. Some may be a bit shy at first, but once you get them going they can spark a 1000 word explanation of why blue can be a color for girls in about five minutes or less. You can grow old with this person and still enjoy talking to them even if you’ve known and loved them for years.
  2. They can be mysteriously sexy – They are beautiful creatures that have an immense amount of sex appeal. They may just be in their PJs with their hair all tousled and glasses lopsided but they carry this aura that you just can’t resist. They know how to work the power of intrigue just like writing their stories and news articles. Its a balance of having the artistic capability to write well and the intelligence to put facts into a commanding article.
  3. They are great at adapting to people and situations – Given that journalists have to interact with various sorts of people and go about different kinds of situations, they can be more flexible. They may have a bit more tolerance for crazy stuff you may have going on. They are probably more adventurous than most. If something is truly relevant to them they will take the time for it. This comes from the sheer need to put patience when you need to investigate on something. If they want to get to know you they will get to know you. If they think that you, singing on an open mike is pretty important, you can expect them to be there.
  4. They know the essence of time – Being time pressed and always bound for deadlines has given journalists the practice of knowing the value of time. They may procrastinate at times but if the put their heart into something and they know it is time sensitive then they will make an effort to “meet the deadline”. If they are not trying to finish an article and you really need them to do something at an exact time more or less (if they think its important) they will do it.

List 2: The Downside of Dating a Journalist

  1. They can have weird behaviors – Most journalists need to get into the zone in order for them to their work. Sometimes getting to that point can require a few quirky steps. They may want to do yoga while listening to rock music, drink coffee infused with vodka, take a shower without really taking a shower just because hearing the water flow out helps them think better. They may be a bit OC sometimes (or all the time). They may want to clean the entire house before they start writing (which entails your help). A lot of weird things that other people may not get. Be patient. All of these helps them to think. Sometimes they want to nitpick stuff because part of being a journalist is being great with details.
  2. They can sometimes zone out – If they are trying to beat the deadline or if they have to interview someone really important, chances are they can ignore you; like TOTALLY ignore you. Their mind is else where trying to put a great piece together. You can invite them to the movies, you can invite them to eat, hell you can invite them for an amazing massage followed by an amazing sex but they will ignore you. Writing is their first love. Yes they love you too or like you a lot but they have got to do this. If you start saying that why are they treating you like you don’t exist and put on some drama, chances are they will run.
  3. They can be like the FBI – They have eagle eyes. They can spot lying a mile away. This is what they do for a living and they can try to profile you in an instant. Journalists can investigate facts and use them against you. They can make a mental picture of what you’ve done in the past and put it out when you guys argue. The great thing though about their investigative talents is that sometimes they can use that to help you out. Bad news is that lying to them can be futile.
  4. They can be manipulative – Journalists can be master manipulators. They are good with words. They can talk you into things. They can make something important trivial and vice versa. It comes from their ability to make a mundane story be controversial and turning a big news to unimportant.

So there. Those are the ups and downs of dating or having a relationship with a journalist. It can be crazy at times but it can be so much fun too. (I just hope my husband doesn’t read this or else he might find out how manipulative I can be!)

Astrology is based around the understanding of a complex astrology chart.

Love Predicted

There are few things in life that bring more joy and happiness than love. We are always looking to fill our world with meaningful relationships that add something to our life. When you are looking for your true love, it can be an overwhelming experience. Not knowing exactly what you are looking for can make it seem like you will never find true happiness. Sometimes a love psychic can help to calm your nerves and predict your romance before it even happens. You might be a skeptic when it comes to psychics and predictions, but the story of Callie may change your mind.

Why Not Give It A Shot?

Callie had spent her entire 20’s working toward her career goals. She had always had an interest in medicine and healing that led to her pursuing a career in medicine. Becoming a doctor took almost all of her time and a social life was sacrificed as a result. However, Callie still wanted to get married and have a family someday. She simply didn’t know when that time would come and how she would meet her eventual Prince Charming. Her friends always urged her to get into the dating scene, but she felt too uncomfortable to go on blind dates or meet guys at the local bar. Callie was quickly beginning to doubt if love was really in her future. She had always been interested in tarot readings and fortune telling, so she finally decided to give it a shot. What did she have to lose?

How Do You Know?

Callie was understandably nervous when she met with Maurine, she had done her research and found one of the best psychic readings she could from a trusted psychic.. Maurine was an experienced psychic that had a large following. When Callie arrived for her reading, she was quickly taken aback by the expression and shock on Maurine’s face. It was like Maurine had known of her in some way. As they began to talk, Maurine told Callie that love was indeed in her future. She said that the man Callie was looking for simply was not ready for her yet. She advised that Callie keep on her path toward career success and that love would find her. Callie had many questions involving when and where, but Maurine said that the specifics were not important. Callie would have her Prince Charming and family, but she would have to be patient as her true love found her.

Destiny and Chills

Callie was little disappointed in her fortune reading and thought that it really offered no insight. How did Maurine know that her love would find her? Callie decided that maybe she should start dating and take her romantic life in her own hands. However, her schedule at the hospital picked up and pretty soon she was solely focused on work again. That is until the new resident doctor arrived at her hospital and a spark was immediate. He had been working on his residency at another hospital and transferred to be closer to his parents. Single and looking for love, Callie immediately thought of what Maurine had predicted. Could her true love have finally found her?

The spark between the two of them was immediate and their romance only grew with time. They both shared a passion for helping others and understood how much dedication it takes to be a doctor. Callie had finally found the man that she could build her life with and he felt the same way. Twenty years later, Callie still finds herself going back to the day that she met Maurine. She really did predict the love story that changed Callie’s life forever and brought her immense joy.

Online Dating – good or not?

Most people get mixed emotions when it comes to online dating. They ask questions, like “How different is it from face-to-face dating?” or “Is it really better than normal dating?”

The More, the Merrier?

Easy access is the no. 1 strength of online dating. Nowadays, if you do not have a social media account, it’s either because you slept under a rock for a long time or you’re just not a believer. Either way, you are missing out on the fun of easily finding online dating partners online and maybe even finding love.

The disadvantage of this easy access to potential dates is of course, information overload. With so much choice you might feel confused and a bit overwhelmed. Simply put, with so much goodies on your plate, you just can’t decide which to try first!  If you get really mixed up you could try a psychic like my friend linda did (and so many of the celebrities that we see a lot of are known to contact psychics and mediums for advice!).  She has used Kasamba and Psychic source.  She wasn’t very keen on kasamba (formerlly liveperson) but she did really like psychic source for many of the reasons that you see here in this psychic source review.

Most Shocking Celebrity Splits

The most shocking celebrity breakupsCelebrities might be normal human beings like you and me, but their relationships play out in the public eye and many people feel like they are a part of the fairytale romance.  This can be a lot of pressure for any celebrity, which makes splits more difficult and heartbreaking to deal with. Celebrities look like they have it all, but many have not found their one true love that lasts. When celebrities breakup, it can be a shock and make real love seem less possible. Here are some of the most shocking celebrity breakups that had women all over reevaluating their ability to find prince charming. Celebrities really have a lot of pressure, when it comes to love and relationships.

Jen and Brad

When you begin talking about shocking celebrity breakups, none compare to the fairytale and demise that was the relationship of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. He was the movie star with shockingly good looks and she was the gorgeous sweetheart that had America wrapped around her finger. It seemed like a match made in heaven to the outsiders and this is what caused such dismay after their union resolved. Everyone was looking forward to seeing the genetically blessed children that Jen and Brad would have. What made this breakup even juicer was the widespread speculation that ran rampant. Jen and Brad decided to remain mum on the intimate details of their split, but the presence of Angeline Jolie was undeniable. Celebrity splits are always tabloid fodder, but when 3 A-list movie stars are involved in a celebrity spit, the media coverage goes into overdrive.

Even though the spilt of Brad and Jen took place almost a decade ago, there are still many unanswered questions that exist. No one will ever truly know what went wrong between Brad and Jen, but now we have the love affair of Pitt and Angelina Jolie to keep our interest and keep us jealous of their joy.

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

Some celebrity splits are shocking, but others seem more inevitable. The end of the marriage between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries was not what made everyone gasp, it was the length of their union that made jaws drop. Kardashian filed for divorce after just 72 days of marriage and made many people question whether her marriage was simply for show. Kardashian had an over-the-top wedding that was televised and lined her pockets, but she didn’t even stay married for 3 months.

Most people are not that crazy about Kim Kardashian in the first place and her disregard for the sanctity of marriage only increased her unpopularity with many. When it comes to love advice, Kardashian is not a great example, but she might have finally met her match with Kanye West. Maybe their upcoming nuptials will actually lead to a full year of wedded bliss. For the celebs it seems easy to meet a celeb partner, but it doesn’t always last.  For normal people like us we have to find our dates more conventionally, but thanks to the internet it can be easier now as I found out when trying dating site match.  I guess you won’t see the likes of Kanye on there but you might find your own more normal hottie, find out more with this review of match.com.

Katie and Cruise

Their love seemed a little outrageous and fast, but Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise really did seem to make a great pair. After jumping on Oprah’s couch and declaring his love for Holmes, Cruise had a teen-like infatuation with his new love match. After marriage and a baby, the love between Holmes and Cruise faded over time. The real details of their split never truly emerged, but many theories exist. From his controlling Scientology beliefs to her longing for freedom and normalcy. Cruise and Holmes are still huge stars, but their romance is no longer at the forefront of pop culture

The one thing you can count on when it comes to celebrities are amazing love affairs and shocking splits that keep you guessing.
