1. We are honest and well spoken.

We mean what we say and say what we mean. There is no fluff, no sparing of feelings, no stretched truths. We are honest and to the point. We won’t beat around the bush and we won’t lie to you, even if sometimes it hurts your feelings. Being in a relationship with a writer will guarantee honesty and trust.

2. We have a way of putting into words exactly how we are feeling, so you never have to guess.

There are very few times when you will find a writer at a loss for words. We will find away to articulate those indescribable feelings and confusing times and let you know exactly how we are feeling. There will be no guessing with us. We know how detrimental ambiguousness can be to our writing, so we won’t use it in our lives.

3. We will always push you to break down walls and open up.

As writers, we find the deeper meaning in many things. We are designed to break down sentences, put as much meaning as possible into paragraphs, and to always find the hidden story. We will push you to do the same. We won’t let you answer, “How was your day?” with a simple “Fine” or even “Good.” We want to hear the honest story. We want to know your past and how it makes you the way you are, and we will push you to figure it out. Putting up walls is simply a speed bump in our journey to find out everything and anything about you, and I promise, we will get through those walls.

4. We are free-spirited and creative.

And we will encourage you to do be the same. We tend to go with the wind, pick up and change directions often, and to always look at the smaller details rather than the bigger picture.

5. You will never have a dull moment when in the company of a writer, for everything is a story.

Whether it’s going out to dinner, seeing a concert, or traveling the world, we will treat every experience like a story. We will always enjoy our time and ensure that you do the same. If you are lucky enough to pull your writer away from his or her computer or notebook, embrace it and take him or her on the adventure they crave.

Should you choose to date a writer, you will be the leading character in their current chapter and you will challenge them to look toward the end of their story when many others cannot do so. Fall in love with a writer because they will not only add you to their story, but also pull your story out of you. They will challenge you in ways you could not possibly imagine and while dating a writer may prove difficult at times, the reward is worth the risk.

Be patient with your writer. They will need quiet and peace at times. There will be extensive periods of time when you can’t pull them away from their work. You will be filled with their comments of self-doubt and constant worry that their current piece is not enough. You will have to deal with their frustration when they are experiencing writer’s block and their immense joy when they’re riding their writer’s high. When their work is done you will be met with a smile worth a million words. The ups and downs of dating a writer will keep you on your toes, but in the end the reward is overwhelming. Fall in love with a writer because the story inside them is more beautiful than anything an ordinary relationship could conjure. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
