Challenges of dating a police officer
An officer’s job is summed up with “To serve and protect.” Your date will be looking out for the innocent and making citizens feel safe and secure. You’ll be dating someone who many consider to be a hero.
Police officers are able to problem solve quickly and don’t freeze or panic in emergency situations.
Not only do they care about your wellbeing, you know they also care about the wellbeing of those around them – it’s a nice feeling.
If anything were to go wrong, you know you’re in good hands.
2) They might have different views on drugs and alcohol than you do.
It’s the police’s job to protect citizens from the dangers of drugs and alcohol.
Between the shift work, the long hours and dealing with dangerous, life and death situations – being a cop can be very stressful.
To quote a cop I once dated, “Every day I go to work, I witness the breakdown of society.” Even if the person you’re dating is positive and upbeat, you have to keep in mind that many police see and experience some pretty grizzly stuff on a day to day basis – and sometimes it’s hard to let it go at the end of the day. You’re dating someone who puts their life on the line every workday to keep other people safe.
Although my days of keg parties and all-night partying are long behind me, I do enjoy a good glass of wine every now and then, and I refuse to feel bad about it.
If you’re the independent sort, you’ll have plenty of that much-needed time to yourself.
Your date will likely help inspire the next generation of cops. Police officers have partners on the job — and value loyal partners at home to support them, too.
Added to that, because of the sensitive nature of what they do, they often they can’t talk about their work – even when they really want to. 5) If you do want to act out your cop fantasies in the bedroom, they have all the right equipment. That’s pretty awesome, and there is nothing better than being proud of the person you love.
Like dating anyone with a demanding career, dating a police officer is definitely full of lots of highs and lows.
