I wouldn't mind being friends with one but Im not sure I would want a relationship with one.
1. I don't really trust them 2. They work and travel a lot and often have to bring their work home with them. 3. I get the vibe the sleep around. 4. She is probably smarter than me and girls generally prefer guys who are at the very least equally as intelligent. 5. Lawyers tend to be condescending, manipulative, and great at lying.
So overall I think she would be someone who is cool to talk to and hang out with once and a while but I wouldn't want to really open up to them or make a serious emotional investment.
Being a lawyer is a pretty high income career, And, the path im going down (Carpentry apprenticeship) Essentially makes me lower class scum in the eyes of society, So, I feel like a lawyer could do a lot better then me and that would bother me.
It definitely wouldn't intimidate me. I'd be more intrigued and slightly excited than anything. I'd be observant as to why - is it for the money, or because she likes the intellectual challenge or does she want to achieve a political or social objective with the law? If it was just an unimaginative route to big bucks, I'd be put off.
Being political with it, as many lawyers are (see Atticus Finch, for example), might be exciting but there's a risk with political people of their becoming boring or predictable or humourless.
If it was for the intellectual challenge, I'd ask her on a date.
If she managed to combine all three aspects without being boring or money-obsessed, I'd ask her to marry me.
Its not an intimidation thing... its just career women dont really have anything to offer me. I want a woman for her time attention and reproductive ability... career women dont have spare time to give me any if those things.
I actually meet a young women who was going through school to become a lawyer , I meet her during the summer when she was working at a restaurant , she was easy going and a party girl , wouldn't of really known she was becoming a lawyer. I don't really know what she'd be like as the lawyer , I'd find it intimidating being with someone of such higher standing than me. I'm never going to have a law degree and be a lawyer. I also find its the kind of job that takes up a good % of someones time , it really didn't bother me that she wanted to be one but not something I'd care much for. I would of tried to date her if she hadn't been so difficult about it
