Dating dilemma: Is their/your job too sexy?

I was bypassing the TV One network and spotted a show called Love Addiction. This particular episode featured Dr. Tartt, who has guest blogged on our MIA blog before, talking to a couple in distress. I am not sure where the addiction came in, but the woman was dating a guy who is paid to rub on dangerously naked women all day.

I started to wonder which jobs, careers brought a slew of potential dangers if you were in a relationship. Obviously a massage therapist has to look at women all day as they moan in pleasure (if he’s doing it right!), is pretty close to most sexiest jobs. What about an OB/GYN? Or a bartender?

Do you think that certain jobs or careers would require a super secure, totally understanding partner, for things to work?

I can not imagine having to constantly explain about “clients” to a significant other. Then again, what is it really like having to deal with your mate, basically flirting and turning on charm for a living?

What do you think? Would it bother you if you were dating someone in an industry that involved hot bodies and flirting? Are you in that kind of career now? Has it caused dating problems for you? If so, how did you handle it?

swiss – I’d love for Dave to bring his show back. I wonder how Ced the Entertainers new sitcom is going to be.

Ex – I don’t like them because I see how they are and deal with them on a weekly basis. And I wouldn’t just call out the used dealers because the new car salesmen are just as bad. And how do you know what goes on in the Immi arena??? Sounds like you have a story to tell about yourself or family members perhaps…do tell :lol:

Can anyone name a “real” musician, a male, that looks “normal”? Especially one in pop, rock, R&B or just more mainstream music. The creative types always come off unique and different, I just accept that as part of the territory with them. Thus folk like Prince never raised an eyebrow with me. It’s part of the showmanship. Come on, do you see him walking on stage wearing a gray business suit and white shirt with sensible shoes? Come on! That’s part of the fun of going to the shows and seeing them on the Grammys and other award shows – what are they going to show up in? Plus, no amount of crazy clothes or hairstyles are going to make up for lack of talent.

Now if my banker or lawyer rolled up in a purple suit with an orange tie, we might have some issues!LOL!!

kimmie — To be fair, Prince could put on a grey business suit, shirt, tie and sensible shoes, and he’d still be an odd-looking dude. :lol:

Swiss – You’re right. He always pulls the pretty women though!LOL!! I guess him being odd-looking is old news to me though. He’s always pushed the envelope.

It seems to me the odder-looking the musician/artist, the better they are at what they do. All are weird to me, but I like that in an artist! I’m not marrying them, I’m enjoying their art!!

Ex ~ not trying to be grammer mistress. I thought I was about to learn a new word. Should I no longer ask when I see a new word that may enhance my vocabulary? My mistake for giving you the benefit of the doubt. I’ll definitely know going forward.

I remember when KrissKross were out. They had a picture of the 2 of them in the paper because one was from ATL. One had braids, the other had on a bandana. This lady I worked with, and not an old lady either, was just besides herself about the one in the bandana! She’s like “no way would my son go out the house with a scarf on”! I looked at her like she had 3 eyes. He’s a kid rapper wearing clothes that are 2 sizes too big backwards! A nice, neat church suit and haircut won’t exactly fit the image, do you think?LOL!!!

As a former doorman (and karate expert), [some] women will give up the cooter to bypass the line to give up the cooter to someone (slightly) more famous.
