What Should You Focus On When Dating a Female Lawyer?

How is lawyer dating different compared to dating women in other professions? Well, when you date a lawyer, she is not liable to run off at a moment's notice because a new client has arrived in the middle of the night like a doctor. However, there are aspects of her profession that you will need to take into account.

Here are a few tips that will help you when it comes to lawyer dating, particularly if you have never dated anyone in the legal profession before.

  • Schedule the Date:One issue with dating a lawyer is that she will have much of her day tied up with clients, paperwork, meeting with staff, and so forth. This means that your dates will need to fit around her schedule which in some ways is a good thing. So, you might want to start with short lunch dates that will help you get to know her better. Then, if things are looking up you can start looking at weekends or perhaps even spending some time on short vacations together. You will need to be somewhat flexible with your schedule as well. This is because a settled case or other issue may cause an opening in her schedule for a quick date.
  • Listen and Learn: This advice applies to dating all women, but it can be particularly helpful when it comes your lawyer dating. Get to know her profession by listening to her talk about it. Lawyers spend most of their day with clients, in court, going over contracts, doing research, and so forth. So, you will probably have to listen to what she did that day because that is what she does. Be attentive and listen to what she has to say and learn a little bit about her profession. You do not need to become an expert and you couldn't anyway at least without a good education. However, it can really expand your relationship if you take the time to listen and learn from what she has to say.
  • Beware the Limitations: Although the subject may never come up, it pays to keep in mind that lawyers are bound by attorney-client privilege so they cannot reveal all the details of their day. So, never ask about specific details when it comes to a particular client or contract aspects of their work. If they reveal something that you think you should not know, ask if she wants to continue talking about it.
  • Be Light and Have Fun: With few exceptions, her day will include some tedious work so be light and cheerful when you are out on your date. Take her places where the two of you can have some light fun and adventure. You can start off easy by going to a new place to eat, but you can also make a picnic, take a fun bike ride along trails, or spend an evening enjoying a show. Whatever you decide to do, remember that she is looking to get away from her busy day. So, have a little fun when you date a lawyer, she will be most appreciative.
