Even though they say you shouldn’t date people in your industry, those always seem to be the people you most naturally hit it off with, aren’t they? And why shouldn’t they be? You obviously share many common interests if you’re working in the same field. You likely even have some similar personality traits if you were drawn to the same lifestyle. You probably even have many of the same values, since you’re interested in promoting and advancing the same product/concept/company. I say, screw the rule about dating someone in the same industry as your own. You’re passing up on a great pool of potential partners there. That being said, just like dating someone out of your industry presents some challenges, so too does dating someone in it. Here’s what it’s like dating someone who is pursuing the same career path as you.
Finding time to be together is easy
You’ll never have to choose between pursuing your career and being with your partner because they’re one and the same thing. You’ll want to go to the same events, so being around each other won’t be tough.
