7 reasons writers are sexy


Are you tired of dating the same type of guy or girl?

Perhaps you’re looking for someone special to go out (or share the rest of your life) with.

Consider a writer. Why? Because writers are sexy. It’s true! Here’s the proof.

1. Writers have vivid imaginations.

Writers find ways to make seemingly bland things exciting.

What this means for you: Dates never have to be boring. We will use our creative juices to manifest a fabulous experience for you.

2. Writers are detail-oriented.

Writers write. Everything. Down. We keep notes on names, dates, and places.

What this means for you: We will never, ever forget your birthday or any important milestone; we will remember all the “little things” you say, tucking that knowledge away for future reference.

3. Writers read.

Writers not only pay attention to annual and ongoing best-of book lists; we make sure to read the book before it comes out in movie form.

What this means for you: We will make great recommendations to ensure you only read (and watch) the best stuff in pop culture.

4. Writers have a gift with words.

Writers have a knack for wordplay.

What this means for you: We are the perfect partner in a Scrabble and/or Balderdash team challenge and can help you finish that pesky crossword puzzle. Plus, we are great storytellers and can keep you entertained for hours through the magic of metaphors, oxymorons, and onomatopoeia.

5. Writers understand people.

Writers are good listeners and observers. Why? We write about people all the time—which means we take time to understand what makes them them.

What this means for you: We won’t monopolize the conversation; we want to know about you. So, be prepared for lots of personal questions—and engaging dialogue.

6. Writers know how to communicate.

Writers have extremely strong language skills.

What this means for you: You’re never going to walk away from us in confusion. Why? Because we put great thought into how we communicate important things to you, and we will even customize our words to ensure you understand and relate to them fully.

7. Bonus if you go for a freelance writer: flexible hours.

Writers are sexy regardless. But what’s extra sexy? How about a writer with a flexible schedule?

What this means for you: Provided we get our work done, freelance writers can take time out for two-hour lunchtime getaways. If you want to steal us away to Fiji on a moment’s notice, no need to worry about working around our schedule: All we need is a laptop and internet connection—and we’ll be there with bells (and a bathing suit) on.
