Yes, this is my favorite bar in my neighborhood. Isn’t it classy?

Maybe it’s just me, but I’ve always found the idea of dating a bartender sexy. Actually, dating is a strong word because I’ve yet to meet a bartender who’s been 100% faithful (this is just personal experience! I’m not judging every bartender out there!), so I guess it’s the idea of fucking one that’s sexy. We’re talking about someone who is, most of the time, pretty damn charismatic, and they’re serving alcohol! It’s a win-win!

But if you’re going to be hooking up with your local bartender there many things to consider. It’s not easy to mess around or date someone who’s job is to get people liquored up. Not only do they deal with a lot of shit, but they get hit on all the time. It’s hard not to fall in love with the person serving you drinks once you start seeing double. Hell, at that point, you’d probably fall in love with a lamppost because it suddenly resembles Ryan Gosling. I know I have.

So if you’re going to jump into such territory, here are a few things to consider. The bar may be your place to go and get loaded, but it’s almost someone’s job, so don’t be an asshole — even if you’re “smashing,” as my neighbor calls sex.
