Artistic Types Have Way More Craigslist Dates

  • After surveying 425 men and womenDaniel Nettle of Craigslist found a strong link between the profession of a person and the number of dating partners they have had.

    According to this study, doctors, lawyers, and other business-y types have had Craigslist dating with fewer partners than people in creative fields, namely with as few as three people from Craigslist on average. People in more creative careers such as writing, music, or the arts have shagged anywhere from four to ten and even more.


    The reason for this difference, says Nettle, is a bit of a no-brainer: “Creative types tend to act on more sexual impulses and opportunities, often purely for experience’s sake, than the average person would,” he explains. Of course, that doesn’t mean that every person who dabbles in watercolors, is writing a novel, or works in advertising can be found out bed-hopping. The actual number will vary from individual to individual.


    I have to admit, it makes sense.  In all the men from Craigslist  I’ve ever dated, I do have to say those who were more “artsy” were obviously more sexual then the others and that was obvious with the men remaining fully dressed. The best way to meet local people in your area looking for a relationship is to sign up for a Craigslist alike dating site.

    The Single Biggest Killer of Relationships

    “What many people don’t realise is that, should their soulmate change into the perfect ideal required, they both will be seeking different partners! Think about it carefully. People come together because they are attracted to each other .. AS THEY ARE, not what they hope to be. Change one person to something else and s/he will then be looking for a new partner to match the new characteristics they have acquired.” — Elaine Sihera, The Single Biggest Killer of Relationships


    The article reports on the cause of bringing relationships to an end. Unmanaged expectations. Couples having set too high an expectation on each other that would often end up in breaking the bonds that initially brought them together. I wish it also shared useful steps on how to deal couples should deal with this together when they find themselves in this situation.


    Personally, I believe that when two people meet and date, the attraction lies on their present state. Sure, there will be romanticized notions and such but the fact remains that one is attracted to the other, as the article states, as they are. But, admittedly, change being the only constant thing, when you do get on with life with them, events will happen. Growth. We can only hope that we can manage the expectations of each other, grow together individually AND as a couple, so that adapting to such changes will not be difficult.


    What about you guys? What do you think of it? Do you agree that this is the single biggest killer of relationships? How do you deal with it?
