If eHarmony's "15 Reasons to Date a Reporter" is representative of the site's dating advice, then you should cancel your membership. The story lists 15 very appealing qualities for a significant other, and then mistakenly associates them with journalists. Since one of the traits is "reporters have a great 'b.s. radar,'" it seems fitting that many reporters (journalists, bloggers, etc.) felt the need to point out how wrong this is.
"Has eHarmony ever met a reporter," asked BuzzFeed's Rosie Gray. "15 reasons to date a reporter (none of them are true)," tweeted Alejandro Lazo of The Wall Street Journal. "A list of reasons why reporters are great to date (you know, except for that dying industry thing)," tweeted Adam Nagourney of The New York Times. Not everyone felt strongly against the list (apparently some people don't want to be single forever) but the general consensus was that it could use a rewrite. For example:
Reasons to date a reporter: 1. You hate yourself 2. You love watching people check their phones 3. You are also a reporter— Sam Baker (@sam_baker) June 5, 2014
In the interest of serving the public good, we corrected the most glaring errors on the list to save daters from making a horrible mistake.
