    Well... personally I go on looks and personality. Not on their profession and pay-packet.

    More seriously though; choose a career for better reasons than reasons than attracting women. I don't know much about the process of qualifying as a radiographer, but I can say that you won't last 5 minutes on a law degree and/or vocational course if your heart isn't truly in it, and even supposing you do manage to slog your way through all the exams, you won't get a training contract (solicitor) or a pupillage (barrister) unless have an all-consuming passion to practice law.
    This, this, and a thousand times this.

    What I find most attractive is a guy not choosing a career based on what girls might like but a guy doing something they love. Maybe that's just me, I don't know.

    Shallow question I know, but I can't help thinking my future career choice will affect a few marginal opinions of me (especially from prospective partners)

    Anyone have a preference?

    Er, I like how everyone assumes I'm trying to get the girls...

    It's a strange question I know. But both jobs have the potential for good $$$ and I believe hold equal respect (dependent on which level in the field you reach)

    I just think that sometimes people prefer the straight-talking, no-nonsense tough guy Lawyer over the caring, sensitive and all-round nice guy Radiographer...

    It isn't a sexual question in the slightest, just one which asks which you'd be most likely to go for in a prospective partner (leaving personality and all the best bits out of it)

    So there's some unwritten rule that says lawyers can't be caring, sensitive and all-round nice guys while radiographers can't be straight-talking, no-nonsense tough guys?

    Is there an entry criteria for radiographers which immediately weeds out the straight-talking tough guys?

    Lawyer obviously. But being a doctor would trump that. A radiographer sounds like a failed doctor or someone who lacked the ambition to try and become a doctor. If you answered that you had a passion for radiography you'd sound like a real nerd. And blonde women in bars would ask you what it was like working for the radio.

    And don't buy the nonsense that women don't care about your career in terms of attraction. They care about your height and career more than pretty much anything else.

    Lawyer. Everytime.

    And to all the girls that say a guy's career doesnt matter - would you really want to date a bin man?

    purely based on people i know, the lawyer is cooler!

    But seriously, do what you enjoy most, don't spend your life doing a job you don't like that much for the sake of relationships, you'll regret it later on!

    Lawyer seems to be carrying the day, but which type of lawyer is cooler and/or more attractive, a male solicitor or a male barrister?

    And why?

    Even though I've said a lawyer through out the thread, to me it really doesn't matter if the guy is a solicitor or a barrister because other things matter more, for example personality.
