Someone who can can create such detailed scenery so easily it has you baffled. Are writers good liars? Could you trust someone who knows how to tell stories? I wouldn't. I don't think I could. I applaud their intelligence and imagination but it's too easy for them to lie, or to come up with something so outlandish even they believe it... how about An actor/actress as well?
I don't think most writers are like that. Many of them are socially awkward and retreat into their fantasy worlds, because they have such difficulty talking to other people. In many cases they are the worst liars you will ever meet. If anything I have found people that lack creativity tend to be the biggest liars. They just copy and paste other things they have heard in order to manipulate people, instead of trying to get creative and come up with anything new. Coming up with a new type of lie would just be far too risky.
whoa, I just imagined my life with a writer, I rarely consider people as hubby/wife material but writers are def a turn on for me. Soooo creative, so smart, so original, so imaginative. YES YES YES TO A WRITER.
I'm a published author, and current writer. I'm a truth seeker, and don't use it to hurt anyone. I've helped many people see things they often over looked. My genre is romance and relationships, I'm both technical and fantastical, I like making someone's most intimate thoughts come alive on paper and show them that what they dream about can come true at least the experience of it. I also like analyzing things to their microscopic level so they can be seen from all angles, I leave no stone un-turned.
The only sad thing about dating a writer in my case is that my way of thinking and ability to analyze *anything* is just nowhere nearly as detailed as what is required to be a writer... it feels like dating up the chain, which always brings up the question if they still like you back even though you just aren't on their level.
@Anonymous has asked an interesting question. I have been a journalist and, therefore, a professional writer for 40 years. I could almost not get a date until I was 30, but that was because I was not a player for a scumbag bad boy. I do not think that my field of work had anything to do with it.
They think theyir stories through and put a lot of details into it, allibies and all. Doesn't mean every time you ask a writer a question, they'll have a book right in their heads with every answer lol
Writers are just another subset of artists. Which means if you can deal with the typical outlooks and need to find 'deeper meaning' in everything like every other self proclaimed/professional artist you'll be right dandy mate.
I'm a writer, and I suck at lying so there's that. I love writing fiction, but very little of it is actually fictional. Sure, the characters and the places are made up to a degree, but honestly, a lot of it is people I have encountered or known, or just aspects of a combination of people I have known filtered through the eyes of someone that is a little teeny bit invented, at least in name. And the situations, the conversations - those come from real life. They are things I've seen, observed, or been a part of. I once wrote a story about an old man who broke out of his nursing home that was actually about the relationship between that old man and his son who had been fighting because neither would listen to the other's concerns properly. And what it was REALLY about was my dad and my grandpa, who had been fighting and it was making me sad. So this is all to say that yes, I would date a writer because writers aren't liars, they are just observant people who really look at the world and pay attention to it. I don't use writing to come up with crazy situations, I sue it to deal with what I know and have witnessed.
I have been with a writer in the past. They are not liars, well, this one wasn't. He had a heart of gold, and lived in a world where everything came to life. He made this crppy world beautiful with just his words, spoken and written. They can be manipulative, with their words and so on. But the majority don't use it for self benefit :)
I'd be extremely 'cautious' because they can be so insanely kind, emotional, and good at making up stories, or just extremely boring and can keep talking about 1 topic for years passionately.. It can get boring.
