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?

Prostitute lol

@SACatWalker Something like that lol

I hated the military...
Also politician , lawyers or judge. Most of those people are pretty obnoxious

@Bam85 I didn't like anyone having that much authority over me.

One of those deodorant sniffers... or porn fluffer...

That's a tough one I can't say that any profession would put me off. Sometimes you just have that job at that time to pay the bills. My job is not satisfying or even attractive too most. Just the one I have.

Connecting with someone else, my only turn-off would be if they were a clergy member which doesn't seem possible on this site.

Though it wasn't asked, the only career I am turned-off of from pursuing is being an Economist or Accountant or anything related to the economy. What a waste of mathematical talents...

I'd message an Economist/Accountant on here but thinking on it more I might have some reservations, probably couldn't talk about work...

You really don't need much in the way of mathematical skills for either profession.

Being a preacher in a fundamentalist church.

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

Divorce Attorney!

Dental hygienist

Film critic. They are assholes.

2

maybe mortician or prison warden

4

working at the KKK would be worrisome.

2

Aside from the silly answers (porn star, hooker) if they have a job, that's a good start. I wouldn't try to be petty about what someone does to pay their bills.

3

Politicians
Defense Lawyers
Psychics
Cops
Judges
Strippers+
Correctional Officers
Clergy

Prostitute, police, con artist.

Not many would put me off but I would say being an escort might make me back off.

Any woo-based profession where you make money selling lies and snake oil to gullible or ignorant people. This includes almost all alternative medicine practitioners, religious leaders, anyone in the psychic community and right wing "news" outlets.

Hunting guide, slaughterhouse worker

1

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.

4

Work in a slaughterhouse - in any capacity.

Sunday school teacher.Lol

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.

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.

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.

2

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