5 things you need to know before dating a journalist
Let’s face it, without the news, nobody would know what the hell is going on. If you want to banter, bring it-we are masters at this.
We have a deep opinion regarding every topic you bring up and there are probably lots of layers or examples to back up our answer.
We are skilled at interviews, so we can smell BS from a mile away…don’t bother. We love feedback because we enjoy conversation, so we will post photos, tweet, and “check in” whenever we please.
Most of us are witty because we have seen and read it all.
Nothing surprises us about humanity anymore, therefore we have to be lighthearted about it.
We don’t have a timetable – news can break at any given time, so our partners need to get on board with this.
We might be meeting you for a lunch date, but if our editor is on the phone pressing for us to cover a recent story, even you can’t get in the way of that.
