Guys would you date a model? Would you be judgmental of the modelling profession and assume that she dates a lot? I have been talking to this guy, we have many things in common, our conversations are fun, but not flirtatious. Very platonic indeed. He hasn't made a move yet.. could it be because of that?
Would you date a model?
What Guys Said 26
No, I personally would not date a model. Why you ask? It's smile for me, in this line of job, you've to constantly put your body out for display for others.
It's the nature of the business, if you want to he successful, you've to break the limits, which normally means go all the way out (naked).
Which of course starts a whole new circle of problem with either people think that she's a slut or she would be willing to do anything for the money, which results in either people disgracing you or loving you for not who you are but for what you can give them.
It's a vicious circle.
I as a normal person would not want such hassle, I would be better off without it, but if you don't have any problem with it, more power to you.0
I would probably assume she's into the club scene and seeps around. Also I am not a fan of knowing that all those photographers got to pay money to take HD pictures of her in various states of nudity while she makes sexually suggestive poses. I would also potentially feel jealous that she looks sexier when posing for the photographers.
Despite that, I would still consider dating one but, litterally the only thing that is appealing to me about dating a model is that even without the photoshop, styled hair, and professionally done makeup they are still better looking than the average girl. Like if an average looking girl posed for those same pictures and lived that same lifestyle I wouldn't even consider dating her. The only thing that makes it tempting to date a model is if she is ridiculously attractive.0

He will no doubt assume that you have gentleman companion with big $$ that he couldn't possibly compete with, and that screwing them is part of your work... so be careful and explain to him that you're not the international playgirl type of model!!!0
It could be that he assume you have guys all over you or your already with someone. That's the curse of attractive people no one makes a move on them because they assume your already taken.
And if a mode was actually interested in me and I was interested in her then yeah I'd date her and give things a shot.1
I wouldn't go near a model and not because she dates a lot but because she if fill of herself and it's such a short lived career that destroys a persons' personality.
It's possible the guy doesn't want to live up to your expectations as models are going to have a lot.0

I would date anyone, as long as she s loyal. Profession is not a barrier for me. Model, sales woman, executive. Dont care as long as we r getting along fine. Of course i would feel a bit worried and be more careful if the girl was very attractive and/or overly friendly/social and i think of everybody here.0
If we clicked yes, but as a shy guy I would probably be too scared to show too much interest because I would assume she did not like me.0
I would date our but nt marry her.2
No I am more of a private person and that would be very stressful. So for selfish reasons no.0
I would and I have.0
no i won't0
ehm, sure why not? And why would I think that she dates a lot just because she's a model?0
I Would... the problem is.. that i doubt she would date Me.0
lol sure I would0
Yes I would... that would be great!!0
I'm a model but I wouldn't date a model because I'm asexual/aromantic.0
I assume it would be difficult. She'd probably travel a lot.0
I would date a model a no problem0
i would and no i won`t judge and by the way i don`t get jealous easy0
No, I wouldn't0
Some dudes are friends with models so when they go out to the bar or club other girls will be interested in them. You know how women compete with each other. Check and mate.0
If i wanted to lie i would say no just because you speaking with that guy and not me :/ lol JK, that surely isn't a deal-breaker for me. I'd love to!0

I was an editorial model for a few years, about twenty years ago. I worked for an international agency, and I lived in 5 different countries over a span of about 4-5 years.
As a rule, the women who did THAT SPECIFIC kind of modeling *did* date (and fuck) a greater than average variety of men... but, these were specifically women who were perfectly fine moving halfway around the *world* on a couple weeks' notice, to countries where they didn't know the culture or the language.
In other words, international editorial agencies attract BIG RISK-TAKERS. And so, unsurprisingly, that personality trait tended to spill over into personal lives, too.
The kind of modeling I did, also, was the kind that's pretty much *over* by mid-20's at the latest. So, there was this very real sense of "carpe diem", because the girls all knew they would have **totally different lives** in a few years—in terms of careers, location, travel, EVERYTHING.
That tended to add to the whole "living for the moment" vibe, too. Basically, it was like a big international "party phase"—with "real life" following up afterward. And true to form, a LOT of my girlfriends from the agency partied and fucked around a lot while they were still modeling... and then slipped effortlessly (and happily!) into more committed, more stable relationships once they entered whatever their follow-up career happened to be.
On the other hand, you mentioned that you're in grad school right now, while also modeling, and that yr tearsheets are just headshots and other such things.
In other words, YOUR agency is probably full of TOTALLY NORMAL PEOPLE, who are just like other totally normal people.
In fact, if you're talking about print/catalog work, I'd be willing to bet that yr agency is populated mostly with women who live pretty healthy, low-risk lifestyles, so that they can maximize their looks and their careers. Right?
In any case... Just TALK to this boy about this sort of thing.
Boys (and *most* girls) have honestly NO IDEA what goes on in the world of modeling. He might think you're in commercial work, like a VS angel. He might think there's a relentless "casting couch", especially if he's watched one too many pornos. Who knows.
If I were you, I'd just ask him point-blank—What does HE think yr modeling life is like?
I bet the answers will be VERY entertaining... hilarious, even. He probably has no clue how mundane and un-exciting most of yr assignments are.
Good luck <30
Be ready to have a lot of assumptions made about you (she's a slut, she's narcissistic, she's a snob, she wouldn't go for a guy like me). A lot of people mistake modelling with being a lifestyle/personality than an actual job. Since you're already talking to him it shouldn't be difficult to break that stereotype. Him not being flirtatious could mean anything.0
nope i wouldn't0
He probably thinks you have a bunch of dudes already talking to you and that he has no chance.0
