Would you rather date a very good artist or a very good athlete? Let's say the two of them have personality traits that you find very attractive and that both of them physically you find also very attractive as well, at the end of the day which one of them would you choose and why?
I went the route of thinking of both in a career way: professional artist or professional athlete. The reason I chose athlete is because of the demands of being an artist. This is not me saying that being an athlete doesn't have demands upon him. However, there are very different kinds of artists: painters, musicians, sculptors, design, etc. Some of these jobs will first be unlimited. By this I mean that there is no real start or end time/date to their job. If they are extremely passionate about their jobs, they could become workaholics, which is not conducive to a relationship. Lastly, they may be commissioned or asked to travel for extended periods of time for their job (tour, gallery, etc.). While professional athletes may travel, those stints are short and doable (as a significant other). Lastly, I know that the athlete has some dedication to fitness, which I find extremely attractive.
On one hand I'm a very creative person and an artist might better understand that... On the otherhand I'm not a sporty person, so getting with an athlete would boost my confidence, I could think: "I dated an athlete!".
