Birds of a Feather...Should Writers Date Other Writers?
It's a commonly held belief that opposites attract.
Oftentimes these notable differences are obvious even to us when we encounter lovebirds in public.
The 6ft. fella' with a mate who looks like a midget while walking hand in hand in the park.
The couple at a cocktail party where the woman is extremely outgoing while her husband is an apparent introvert.
A thin man with a full-figured female.
The list goes on and on.
But how about birds of a feather?
I'm a firm believer that sometimes commonalities provide a concrete foundation for relationship success.
Which brings me to today's $64,000.00 question...
Do creative individuals make better matches?
Is the bonding better when a writer dates another writer, or a musician, or an artist?
Do you dig dating someone who “gets” you and your lifestyle? Or does it breed competition?
Or do you perhaps feel that it really doesn't make a difference in the world of “Mars” and “Venus”?
As we head into the romantic fall season, I'd love to hear your thoughts on dating and mating in the creative world. "A penny for your thoughts..."
