Arguments are Futile
Lawyers argue for a living, but they prefer peace and quiet after a long day's arguing at work. However, if there does come a time to quarrel, do you think you'll win against them in real life? Nope!
Lawyers are experienced, expert negotiators, and great at resolving conflicts. This could mean that you might not have to pay the full price for most things.
If your lawyer boyfriend or girlfriend works in a legal firm or is a partner in one, chances are that they're financially secure. However, also keep in mind that their student loans are unbelievably high.
Got Your Back
Lawyer boyfriends have your back at all times, and will defend you with all they've got, even if you're wrong.
Legal Services on the House
If you're courting a lawyer, their legal services may even be on the house for you. They will even go that extra mile just to scoop you out of trouble.
You'll get to hear interesting law-school stories from your lawyer partner, which will keep you entertained during all those dull evenings.
Epitome of Confidence
When the time comes to socialize, lawyers simply ooze confidence. They're sure to charm everyone around, especially your parents.
Parties with Open Bars
Being a lawyer means having an active social life. Accompanying them means attending lots of fancy parties and meeting influential people. An added bonus is that, their parties often include an open bar.
Working Odd Hours
The downside of dating a lawyer is that, they have an erratic schedule and work odd hours. Which means that they can be called away anytime; therefore making plans with them is always dicey. Your life and plans together will often revolve around their schedule.
Miss Out on Important Moments
A lawyer's life is a busy one, with no set time for a personal life. This can make life a little lonely, as they might miss out on those crucial moments when you need to be together.
