10 Things to Know When Dating a Girl in PR

Just for fun and because Jarrett and I talk about our careers a lot, I asked him to write his thoughts about what it’s really like to date a girl in public relations. Here’s what he came up with (god bless him):

  1. Starbucks is your friend, just make sure you get the order right or you will be going back. Coffee in general makes everything better for her.
  2. Always be on time. There is a schedule for everything, including your arrival. The last thing you want to do is make changes to the schedule.
  3. While Starbucks is your friend in the morning till the afternoon, it’s time to switch to your next friend wine in the evenings!
  4. You are now with a Twitter and social media addict, if you use a hashtag wrong you will hear about it.
  5. Twitter Chats are something you will now know about. You will lose her to one of these at least once a month (or twice) and you should not bother her at all during these or suffer dire consequences. These are serious.
  6. Client crises are also very serious. When she gives you warning of this, stay clear and try to be as supportive as possible until is passes.
  7. If you do not answer your phone after 2 tries, then she will most likely assume the worst: that you have been hospitalized or are dead. Always answer texts and calls.
  8. Go ahead and start investing in Apple stock early on! You are always on team Apple. Droids are not okay.
  9. Know that it’s okay to ask her to put her phone down. Do this often!
  10. No matter what the difficulties are or how you may lose your girlfriend to technology, you will be considered one of the lucky ones if you are with a PR girl. They are caring, loving and the best catch!

I think he added the last to try to sweeten me up, but that’s okay! All of this is true for me!

I’ll also be writing a similar post on what it’s like to date a guy in broadcasting; it’s difficult as well.

What else would you add?

  1. While I agree with the Starbucks thing wholeheartedly, I think it’s worth pointing out that you should notice what kind of phone your girl uses and then invest accordingly. I personally love my Android phone, the larger screen is better for monitoring client pages and writing emails.

    Also be ready for her schedule to be packed. PR people tend to get involved in everything that comes across their inbox, so she will at times find herself overloaded and may not have very much free time. Schedule date nights far in advance and she’ll make time for it – as long as one of those dreaded client crises don’t come up.

    1. Ahhhh I knew someone would comment about the Droid thing! I just hate Droid and am 100% team Apple, so that part could be per individual. I try to stay off my work email in the evenings and on weekends and I love my iPhone.

      Oh yes with the schedule. We’re SO involved in so many things that sometimes it can be hard to schedule. Client crises.. SMH. Thanks for reading!!

  3. Yes! All of this is true.

    One more tip for guys who date PR girls: NEVER text or post something in incomplete sentences or with incorrect grammar. For example, don’t use your when you mean you are, and especially not ur. You will never hear the end of it.

    1. Thanks for reading, Lauren!

      I agree about the grammar. While I’m not the best at writing all the time, I never hesitate to correct Jarrett’s grammar and spelling. He’s terrible with it!

  4. Yes! All of this is true.
