Bachelorette stars Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson will have their pick of well qualified men come May 18th. Why is it a good idea to consider your partner’s occupation before starting a relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

There are many factors to consider when deciding whether someone is a good romantic match for you. While you might be inclined to think that occupation isn’t important Cupid has some love advice on why this factor shouldn’t be ignored:

1. Time is money: Can your significant other give you the time commitment you’re looking for? If you’re new beau has a high-powered career that probably means long hours and less time with you. If you’re looking for a serious relationship, then this probably isn’t an ideal situation.

2. Get down to business: No matter what the fairy tales say research shows that relationships between people with similar education levels usually have a higher rate of success. While there are always exceptions to the rule it can be prudent to look for a partner who has had a similar education and work path as you. This way you’ll automatically have a better understanding of each other’s situations.

3. Work hard, play hard: Knowing a potential suitor’s career ambitions can be very important. Are they up for a promotion that’s going to take them to an office out of state? Are they looking for a job where they have to travel consistently? If you’re looking to stay put then this isn’t an ideal match. Minimize the possibility for heartbreak by making sure you and soon-to-be sweetheart have similar life goals and plans.
