S., so a dating site catering to this niche market seemed like a no-brainer to Elena.
“You don’t always have the time to go out, and dating someone from your office isn’t an option,” Elena described her dating woes.
For now, Elena can be proud that Lawyers in Love provides an easy way for busy legal professionals to get to meet, flirt, and build relationships with like-minded people on their own schedule.
“You know, it’s really just a way to help people out and let them have some fun,” she said.
Profession, work-life balance, free time, and interests are all part of the site’s dating profile.
“Having those big factors already out in the open really helps users find a person more properly matched to them,” Elena asserted.
Lawyers in Love functions as a typical dating site does, with features to sort by such as location, area of practice, and even more creative descriptors such as the Supreme Court Justice you most identify with (Are you more of a John Roberts, loyal and earnest, or a Sonia Sotomayor, trendy and liberal? There are fun legal Easter eggs all throughout the profile options including “powdered wig” as a hair description and “9th Circuit” (listed after “anarchist”) as a political leaning choice.
So how do lawyers find other lawyers to go on dates with?
From what I recall of Guardian Soulmates, the lefty romance medium which hosted my own sortie into the world of online dating a few years ago, it’s crawling with lawyers.
