I am not talking about an A-Lister a la Angelina, Clooney and co.
I mean aspiring actress/actor, that does it passionately, runs from audition to audition trying to make it somehow.
I am in acting school and want to do it for a living but I don't want to date a fellow actor. I am more into down-to-earth guys working normal jobs...but whenever I am dating new people, I get dumped for a less physically attractive woman (sorry if I sound arrogant here, I don't mean it that way, it' s just something my male friends and I notice every time I get dumped) with a more stable job like office lady for some company or a nurse etc.
I feel like they're somehow not 'confident' or 'informed' enough to want to an actress and believe that most of us are bimbos that sleep their way up...I really don't know. I am not dumb either, I went to college in Sweden (where I am from) and majored in theater studies. Now in West Hollywood, taking acting classes.
I am neither ugly, nor desperate and uneducated...and I can't have THAT bad of a personality, or?
Aw man...I really have no idea.
What about you guys? Would you date an actor/actress long-term?

To be blunt, people in theater tend to be really strange. Everyone I've known who was in theater knows what I meant and agreed with it. Most of those people just aren't my cup of tea.
Having said that, I'd go by the individual, not the group. If she was normal and her acting career didn't get in the way of the relationship, I wouldn't have a problem with it. But if she wanted to socialize with her co-workers in theater I wouldn't want any part of it, and she'd have to go alone. Bottom line is that I wouldn't be against it, but I think the odds are not good that I'd be compatible with someone in theater.0
