I think I have too much time on my hands.

I think I'd rather date a school teacher.  Honestly.

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.

You all realize that most of us on this thread are going to actually BE lawyers at some point?  And I consider myself just as romantic as the next girl...hell, we're just people, not some special breed put on the plant to screw people over!  :P

Yeah I know you're probably right about a lot of women too, but that is still depressing.  Considering for the next three years and beyond I'm going to be surrounded by lawyers not being able to date any will suck.

I would definitely rather date (and marry) a doctor!

Of course there are, Noelle!  Personally, I resent the stigma associated with our profession.  The reason I said I would rather date a school teacher than a lawyer (or a doctor for that matter) is that I would like to be with someone who's schedule isn't as full as mine.  I think it would be very difficult to find time to spend together if you both have very demanding jobs.
