Do Tell: Are You Attracted to Men With Certain Careers?

Some women are suckers for a man in a uniform. Others are attracted to lawyers or doctors, and then there are those who think musicians and artists are the cats meow. Of course it's not fair to judge someone simply by their profession, but the job someone chooses to do for their living certainly says something about who they are. I've always been attracted to business men — there's something sexy about a sharp looking man in a suit, but what about you? Do tell, are there certain careers that you find yourself drawn to in a man or are you an equal opportunity dater?

In uniform, he has me. If he is in the military BIG +, so sexy. I even get turned on if see someone flipping burgers in a fast food restaurant. There is something about a uniform that i dont know.. Just has me.

I'd take whichever comes with long hair, especially if it's a dark gray blonde color. (...drooling...) :P And I don't know about being attracted to specific type of people, but from what I can gather I actually attract a certain kind of men. ;)

I may have a general type with regards to intelligence, personality, and an overall "look," but specifically career? Not really. I am sorry, but I cannot help but think that dating a guy for his career seems especially shallow to me. Doctors, executives, and lawyers (I know plenty of them) tend to attract a lot of women and they tend to expect the attention based on their profession alone. I have seen the profession become a crutch for a lacking personality and deep seated insecurities. The stereotype of the wealthy Alpha attracts plenty of women and I just do not believe these reasons are real love. Why feed these egos and be one of the crowd clamoring to score some guy who will (on paper) impress people? I mean, genuine interest is one thing, but a lot of these guys went to these grad schools to get laid and often. How is that attractive? Of course, there are some people who do not fit this stereotype, but too many do. Men who think they deserve only the hottest chicks and need their ego stroked constantly will find their wife expendable.

I think, for me, it's time to date a real guy with a real job! I get turned on by the corporate sexy young tycoons. Or a hot guy with an interesting and stable job as a musician or a pilot or an actor ;)

I don't really have a preference; uniform, suit & tie, dirty and sweaty... they're all fine. I am not, however, partial to men who work in retail/restaurants. It's superficial, but I'm sorry, I'm not going to date the grocery store bag boy or the guy that serves my meal (a chef, yes - busboy/waiter, no). A job is a job, and it's nice that he has one, but still... no thanks.

I have to go with a man in a uniform. My husband is in the military and a police officer. There's nothing like a man in his Class A uniform....meow! But it did take me awhile to find a man in uniform who wasn't an egomaniac, because that's NOT attractive.

engineers! they don't bullshit around. they're point black logical. i used to be drawn to lawyers and businessmen .. they look good, they are presentable, they're charming. but hey.. apparently i am not the only1 who found them interesting.. since they've too many options, they tend to shop around, too .. ! Meike .. I'm like you too!! and my name is Meike, too!! what a coincidence .. !

Hmmm...not really, as long as they have a job, are ambitious and goal-oriented. I don't usually go for the musicians though...not my type at all.

I don't care what a guy does for work at all. I'd just like a guy who enjoys life and likes what he does. As long as he's happy that's all that matters.

When I sat down to think about it I came to a pattern. I've dated 2 corporate accountants in the last 7 years. My most recent boyfriend was a real estate attorney. These are my only serious long-term relationships, I am 24). Any short lived romances I have had are with artist types, mostly actors and musicians. I guess I get serious with button down and have fun with wild boys. Interesting...

I'm kind of picky. I'm not into the artist/musician types, but I don't like the suits, either. I think my ideal guy would work for some sort of nonprofit. I like smart guys, so engineer or scientist would be cool, too.
