I wouldn't not date someone just because of their career choice although I would probably stereotype certain choices as attracting individuals I don't have much in common with.

Such as careers in the army.
They might surprise you :P

Although the stereotype about navy boys and infidelity is sadly true, so fun as they are, I would probably be cautious.

I wouldn't want somebody in the military because of the fear they wouldn't come home. And as a vegetarian I wouldn't like someone who worked in a slaughterhouse. But I can't really think of much else.
It worries me that you wouldn't want someone who kills animals but that your objection to the military is that "they wouldn't come home" not "they kill people"

... Just anything illegal, nothing else is a deal breaker really. I guess if you worked in Halal food production or raising caged hens, I wouldn't date that person. But that's all I can think of.

Army etc would be tough, but not a deal breaker. Besides, think of the uniforms.

Can't think of much other than being in the Armed Forces. The worrying, being away for 6+ months at a time, etc.

Other than that, not fussed.

My boyfriend used to want to join the army, when he was having an early-life crisis and was convinced he'd fail all his exams. He didn't, and now wants to be a teacher, so I think that idea was firmly put to bed. Thankfully.

I'm assuming that they'd only be killing people who were trying to kill them. I know that sounds kind of naive, but I wouldn't want to date anyone that could kill anyone if they (or someone else they were next to) weren't in danger.

Why would you not want a girl that works with animals? I would love to have a job like that (unless it's that job where you have to jack off animals) but I didn't know it would be such a turnoff to guys :/

:lol:

Would they get jealous?



I wouldn't say working with animals is a turn off for guys in general. If anything it shows a caring side. Which is attractive imo.

What's wrong with working with animals?

There are very few jobs that would put me off, but:

- I would never date a butcher
- I would never date a reverend :p:
- I would never date anyone in the military

Pimp, drug dealer or anything else dodgy.



If I was single and looking for a partner I would prefer to meet someone who wasn't in these professions for the same reason. It wouldn't be a dealbreaker though.

haha I'd be the same to be honest if I really did like them

At the risk of derailing the thread, military operations consist of two sides trying to kill one another. They'd only be killing people who were try to kill them because they (i.e. your hypothetical partner) were trying to kill them (i.e. the enemy) in the first place. It's a vicious circle. In essence, by joining the military, you are consenting to be asked to go out and kill people and that would, in my opinion (and returning nicely on topic) rule someone out for me as a partner.

That's not likely to be the case for, for example, an army doctor. But they would still be out because I'd be worried they wouldn't come home.

Anyone involved in anyway with horses.

Aside from that, if they are ambitious and hard working its a thumbs up.

That's true, I guess.
