Between an absurd amount of class time, reading, job hunting, socializing, networking, and various resume-building extracurriculars, law students have no time for relationships. Thus, a few minutes chasing a girl that ultimately fails is DISASTROUS from a time management perspective.I sat down with five guys in my building of all different class years and came up with three important factors to remember when trying to date a very busy law student: That being said, some of the busiest law school guys won’t be looking for relationships at all.As nature would have it, another person—who was just as naïve—fell in love with him for it. And once law school is over, you believe your lives will return to normal.Before the doubt and self-loathing, there was love. Probably not, if you read this post by Katie Marie, a Bay Area writer who reminds us that hell hath no fury like a significant other scorned.Maybe you’re Elle Woods and he’s Luke Wilson and if I met you I’d resist the urge to shoot heart-shaped candies at you with an uzi. So by all means, tell us the gooey stories of love and happiness that started in law school. He seems to really like me, but it also seems like he has no time for me because he works so much!First of all, what do you think he is interested in in terms of our relationship- e.g., casual dating, or serious relat, or what?
Not every relationship can handle the “one of us goes free while the other is chained” dichotomy.
And who hasn’t quoted Shakespeare’s “let’s kill all the lawyers” line?
Ever notice how easily you can make someone laugh by comparing lawyers to sharks, snakes, skunks, rats, roaches, and wolves?
Instead, they’re asking whether these couplings have any legs once people get out into the real world…. Meeting your spouse in law school is kind of like meeting your spouse in a theater of war and then assuming everything is going to work out once you get back to the home front.
You’ll both have scars that only the other person will understand, but you’ll still kind of look around and think, “Wow, now that I’m home I remember that there are all these people with no scars.” And by “scars,” I’m clearly talking about debt.
