I mean sure there are good guys out there that are lawyers, but after seeing some of the posts on this thing from guys who say how they don't date other girls in law school because those girls think that being smart and accomplished somehow compensates for them not be hot. 

Might I surmise that 'hot' means tanned and scantily dressed?

Yeah I was wondering what dating a lawyer would be like, you kind of get this horrible image in your head of a womanizer, but then again I watch to much tv.

Ah, yes but this is modern times and the practice of law is not restricted to only men-- I have also known several successful women lawyers, who are as tough as the men. I think many lawyers are not especially romantic, and tend to view relationships as to how they might benefit their careers (business savvy.)

I must remember to re-evaluate my intended purpose.

I usually say something such as "thank goodness, the paper is completed, I studied and I have written plenty of notes."

No, No NO.

Think about the various things for a minute. The baby doesn't just magically appear. Consider the 9 months of pregnancy without complications: morning sickness, doctor visits, tiredness--and the time spent at the hospital and recovery. A healthy baby that cries at night, needs fed half a dozen times per day, and diaper changes a dozen times per day. Then more doctor visits.
Consider the cost. Is there medical insurance to cover the costs of doctor visits, tests, sonogram or amniocentesis, hospital for mother and baby? Consider the cost of clothing, feeding, toys, and accessories that babies need. If considering family members as the daycare option, discuss it with them first.
Consider the cost of pregnancy complications: Forced to quit work and school? Additional doctor visits and possibly additional hospital costs. If baby isn't healthy or normal, then the additional cost of extended hospitalization, and the worries about the baby. Consider costs of raising a deformed, retarded or handicapped child.

Not to mention the hormonal changes that mommy experiences. Baby becomes all important, school and work become secondary or non-existent.

School first, then the baby. The law school education will provide a better standard of living.

I think I have too much time on my hands.

"Also what is with not wanting to date an equal.  Honestly, why wouldn't you want to date someone who is going through the same thing as you are, is the same intelligence level, you know someone you have something in common with.  I'm not saying its always necassary, but I can't imagine that being a turn off."

Gosh, I suppose if my recent dates (within the past 2 years) were asked to provide references, I would probably be described as prudish, boring and unable to maintain a conversation. It would also be a short list of references.

Thank goodness for dogs. I almost always have one, but I can't afford one now. (What a life, no spouse, no significant other, and no dog? I think that is the recipe for stress, anxiety, depression or other mental disturbances.)

Fortunately, a friend of mine is now loaning me one of his dogs. A mini-schnauzer is absolutely the best medicine.

I hope the law students have been through 'elementary' school. ;)

Florida law does not allow assisted suicide, self-murder, euthanasia or mercy killings.

Terri Schiavo's death does not qualify as 'excusable homicide."

Therefore, Murder (premeditated) or Manslaughter?

Just for fun--how many civil and criminal charges against Mr. Schiavo?

(i.e. adultery, abuse/neglect of a disabled person, etc, etc)
