7 THINGS GUYS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DATING A PR GIRL

1. We over-analyze everything

We’re used to reading, and re-reading client and supervisor emails all day. We proofread about 100 times before we hit the send button, and every email that we receive gets picked apart and dissected so that we can make sure we know what the message is. That being said, any guy should know that we will pick apart every text, every phone call and every date that involves you. This is not necessarily a good trait, we know that, but it is the truth. So here’s a tip for guys out there… be open and honest and upfront from the start! We are PR girls, so we know when we’re getting played and when we should not trust you.

2. We expect you to make the first move

This doesn’t just apply to the first kiss, it applies to everything else as well. We take and give orders all the time at work, so when it comes to our personal life we want to just take the full back seat and be surprised  We love being wined and dined, (who doesn’t) and as PR girls we want to believe that chivalry is not dead. Send us a text, shoot us an email, or better yet, pick up the phone and call us! Either way, we want to hear from you and see you make the effort first.

3. We will be bossy from time to time

The PR industry is stressful and demanding, and so it’s in our nature to be that way outside of work as well. While we won’t be overly demanding or needy, we will tell you what we want. We will be upfront and honest, just like we expect you to be, and we won’t be afraid to tell you what we like and don’t like. PR requires us to be strong, independent women, and that will translate into us trying to be a little bit bossy with you. Don’t worry though, we also love to be cuddled and doted on at the same time, so take note.

4. We love to have fun

We work all the time, which means we love to go on adventurous dates and take part in spontaneous activities. After the third date, dinner gets boring. Take us sightseeing in the city, or driving around in the suburbs! The more excitement the better… after all, every day is an adventure in the PR world.

5. We are hard workers

We work hard for our clients, which means we will work hard to make the relationship work with you. Yes, we may get caught up in the office every now and then but we will never forget to pay special attention to our date nights. We know how important our personal relationships are and we work hard to never lose sight of that. We always put all of our effort into everything we do, and whether it is a client project or building a relationship, we never want to let anyone down.

6. We enjoy a challenge

From unexpected editor meetings, to a last minute change in plans, the PR girl is never caught off guard. However, we do love to be challenged, and have our minds do a little work. Everyone likes a game, and when it comes to dating, we have to admit; we like the challenge.  Things that come too easy to us don’t feel as satisfying as things that we work hard for. This doesn’t mean that our guy should be completely unreadable, but it does mean we like the mysterious, bad boy thing just a teeny bit.

7. We are genuine

I saved the best one for last. PR girls are the most genuine, caring and well-rounded girls out there. (And I’m not just saying that because I’m biased!) Our passions and work are important to us, as are the people in our lives. We never give up on something and will fight until the end to make other people happy. We know how important it is to please our clients, and that is ultimately our goal for the guys in our lives. PR girls are always the ones to put other people’s needs before their own, and any guy who wants to date a fabulous PR girl should feel lucky to have that opportunity, because we really are fabulous!

I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.

Anaïs Nin

Feeling confident - or pretending that you feel confident - is necessary to reach for opportunities. It’s a cliche, but opportunities are rarely offered’ they’re seized…Given how fast the world moves today, grabbing opportunities is more important than ever.

Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg

I was introduced to this book at the perfect time. So many females aren’t aware of the power that they can aspire to grasp in their careers. More women need to realize that we can’t continue to allow the men to hold primary statuses and the highest positions. We must strive to reach for the same things they [men] have been taught to reach for. Its not that dangerous to break from societal norms while breaking into “the boys clubs”. You can still be a woman, work to become powerful, be talented to sustain power and happiness, be well liked by other men and women, be loved and admired, all whilst still holding on to what essentially makes you a woman.
