    17 Things Everyone Who Dates A Writer Should Know

    If you mix up "you're" and "your", then this probably isn't meant to be.

    1. It's hard to keep secrets from us.

    2. A book is a way sweeter surprise than a bouquet of flowers.

    3. With tight deadlines and a whole lot of stress, a massage wouldn't go amiss!

    4. Please laugh at our witty jokes, even if they're not funny.

    What's a chiropractor's busiest day? Throwback Thursday LOL I am going to die alone

    This is the only instance in a relationship where faking it is ok. It's too awkward to bear when we make a joke that has been planned and thought out, only for no one to laugh along. It'll make us feel special if you do!

    5. Although you mustn't be afraid to give your honest opinion about our writing when we ask for it.

    6. Bad grammar is never sexy.

    7. If we're on a roll with our writing, stay FAR AWAY.

    8. Ditto for brain teasers.

    9. There will be paper, books and pens everywhere.

    You know you're a writer when... #writer #writing #books

    We never know when an idea may pop into our heads that needs to be jotted down right that moment, so it's always best to be prepared with papers and pens around every corner! We're sorry for the mess, but it is absolutely necessary.

    10. Remembering our favourite literary quote is a great way to show that you care.

    11. While not understanding a reference from our favourite book is a massive turn off.

    12. Get ready for plenty of puntastic exchanges.

    13. Warning: We come up with the best burns.

    14. If things end badly, you may find yourself the inspiration for a villain in your ex's bestselling novel.

    15. If you're stuck for date ideas, a romantic coffee date will always do!

    The smell of coffee awakens the senses and brings back memories of hours spent in cafés with a latte and a notebook, trying to act like an authentic writer. It's warm, cosy and ultimately always a romantic setting for a date. Extra kudos if you know our coffee order off by heart.

    16. There are many fictional heartthrobs to live up to.

    17. At the end of the day, the majority of us writers love a bit of romance.
