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?

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

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
