Is there a profession you find a turn-off?

For those of you using this as a dating site:

Say you saw someone you found cute on this site. You go to their page with the intent of sending them a private message introducing yourself, but then you read their bio about what they do for a living.

What job / career would be on there to make you decide not to contact them?

I think I would have a hard time knowing my potential partner was a defense attorney for energy corporations or other organizations that wrought havoc upon the land.

Film critic. They are assholes.

I don't pass much judgement but if you tell me you are a con woman. I will pass on moral compass principle.

Politicians (nothing bores me more than someone who thinks they'll change my mind by constantly arguing their point)...people who work for companies I find do reprehensible things (cigarette distributors, corporate lawyers, etc.)... anyone in the field psychotherapy (specifically session therapists, who try to second-guess and find 'meaning' behind everything you do, no matter how mundane)... That's a good start to my list...

Spin doctor would be at the top of my list, followed meth head.

Butcher, slaughterhouse worker, hunting of any kind, anyone working in a vivisection lab, anyone employed by an anti-abortion organisation, furrier, Conservative Party... you know the sorts of people I mean.

Good question a few years ago we debated this and a lot of the answers here came up as "worst jobs". My choice was bailiff as you can be in right circumstances quite happy to see a cop, defense lawyer even the military if was a natural disaster etc but your never happy

I seem to not get along too well with people who work in finance/accounting however I would give everyone a shot.

Climate change deniers. Anyone pushing carbon based fuel agendas without any recognition that change and transition is not only necessary, but inevitable.

Attorney

Though I would hate to judge someone just for their job anything to do with selling religion or woo to the masses or I suppose conning people in any way.

Not so much a profession as a lifestyle? I don't think I could be with someone who lacks ambition in any respect. It's fine if they want to work or want to stay at home but have hobbies. If the person is just merely existing we're not gonna get along.

There's many like live fox skinning or seal battering

Republican politician or staffer for same
Evangelical clergy of any denomination
Unemployed
Under the table income stream

For me, aged care and child care are no go areas, but as a turn of in a potential date, I guess someone in a funeral parlor job. Mortician or similar. Then add lawyer, politician, car sales or real estate.

i am OK with the military, I would have issues with clergy. I would have issues with unemployment, depending on the reason. I've met several men on free dating sites that were serial unemployed with emotional or alcohol problems. I don't think a truck driver would work out, I don't do long distance.

I'd think twice about sales, and MLM would be a turn-off, also anyone who would be either a "self-help" specialist or motivational speaker.

I'm probably not a great partner for anyone who is looking for a partner that can help win over new business clients either (my ex even said this when she asked for our divorce), that may rule me out for anyone at a start-up or of an entrepreneurial stripe.

Divorce Attorney!

Work in a slaughterhouse - in any capacity.

If their bio said "current President of the United States," that would probably be a dealbreaker for most of us 🙂

Not sure I would want to date an attorney, they spend all day trying to convince on arguments of cases set by courts that are blindly based on religious principles.

Hunting guide, slaughterhouse worker
