I had no idea that we writers were such a miserable lot, destined to be single forever because of what awful people we are! But it did get me thinking: aren’t there a ton of other kinds of people that one should not date based solely on broad generalizations? Well, sure there are. And here is a list.
A Writer Tells You Who and Who Not to Date

She was never going to go out with another writer: no matter how charming, sensitive, inventive or fun they could be. They weren’t worth it in the long run. They were emotionally too expensive and the upkeep was complicated. They were like having a vacuum cleaner around the house that broke all the time and only Einstein could fix it. She wanted her next lover to be a broom.
