    18 Things You Learn Dating An Accountant

    They're super useful when it comes to filling out your tax return.

    1. Your S.O. may well have lied about their job when you guys first met.

    2. But as soon as you found out what they really did, there was no stopping them talking about "the Big Four" and "CTA exams".

    3. And if you’re self-employed, you can't earn a penny without them pointing out how much tax you owe.

    4. But on the plus side, your OH is exceptionally good at saving money.

    5. Even if they are ridiculously busy at certain times of the year.

    6. You'll expect them to be able to answer all of your financial questions.

    7. And you'll also expect them to be amazing at mental maths.

    8. If you share a house, you'll soon learn that they own multiple calculators.

    9. And if you share a wardrobe, their half will be mainly grey and navy.

    10. In fact, they're probably a bit scared of "dress down Friday".

    11. You’ll soon realise that "accountant" is a very catch-all term.

    12. And that given the amount of money your OH deals with, their work stresses can be pretty major.

    13. When you mention that you occasionally put kisses at the end of emails, they're horrified.

    14. When you meet them straight after work there will almost always be a hideous laptop bag in toe.

    15. You receive some truly riveting reads through your letterbox.

    16. Your year no longer runs from January to December.

    17. And you have a feeling your S.O. gets more excited about Budget Day than Christmas.

    18. But above all, you know that accountants make excellent partners.
