When It Comes to Dating, Does Profession Matter?

I have a friend who loves kids and teaches first grade. She met this guy at a cafe, and even though she wasn't really attracted to him physically, she went on a date with him anyway as soon as she found out he was a teacher, too. Often dating someone you share passions with (as compared to dating someone because of their cute butt), can make for a more lasting relationship, and in this specific circumstance, it did!

So what about you? Do you date people based on their professions? Are there certain careers that you're attracted to, like artists or doctors? Are there certain professions that you view as red flags? Or does a person's job not really matter to you when it comes to dating?
