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?

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.

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

Hunting guide, slaughterhouse worker

Being a preacher in a fundamentalist church.

Politicians
Defense Lawyers
Psychics
Cops
Judges
Strippers+
Correctional Officers
Clergy

working at the KKK would be worrisome.

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.

5

Work in a slaughterhouse - in any capacity.

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

Prostitute lol

@SACatWalker Something like that lol

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.

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.

3

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

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.

maybe mortician or prison warden

2

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.

2

There's many like live fox skinning or seal battering

2

Dental hygienist

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.

2

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.

2

Sunday school teacher.Lol

2

Divorce Attorney!

2

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.

2

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

2

Prostitute, police, con artist.
