...or are you dating a firefighter or cop?

I think it takes a special person to be either one...

What is it about your SO, of either profession, that you admire the most....

The constant chaos...seeing people during some of the worst moments in their lives....seeing some on repeat and unable to learn from their mistakes....seeing lives flipped upside down and destroyed....not occasionally but daily....

I can see it being emotionally and mentally draining...heartbreaking at times......I don't see how they can handle it.

They definitely have my utmost respect.

There are definitely moments that really gets to him.Especially anything involving children.Add that on top of shifts that go on long after they were suppose to end...yeah,it can be rough!

Anything with kids, I could not deal. I would stay depressed. But then those moments when they are a hero to someone....I guess that would make up for it all....

I have never. And I won't ever date a COP! Unless my SO becomes a firefighter I won't be dating one of them either.
