Good or Bad? Dating someone in the same profession!

It could go either way. I cant say that I have ever dated another officer that worked with me, but i dated another cop that worked the department next to me in the same county. It wasnt bad, until we broke up. 2 cities that were side by side, where many of us, mingled with their officers, and we new everyone. He was one of the little girl types that liked to share details of our intimate life to his zone partners, so that part was uncomfortable, many propositions for a date followed this...lol. Not so flattering in my eyes. I guess overall in my opinion, never mix business with pleasure, i guess i just couldnt see myself dating someone that worked close to me. It puts you in a position where they start becoming unprofessional, and especially if the person you are dating is a higher rank,or something. This puts you in a position for "favorites", and i dont want to be the one who is in the middle of that. Ive never paid any fellow officer of mine any attention like that.

Good and bad I say. Working in law enforcement made it easier for me to understand what my husband is going through and it makes it easier for him to talk to .me about work (I understand the lingo and the emotion). But I think both could potentially get caught up in work and forget to put more effort into the relationship. Seems like LEOs need a flexible partner and I am not sure another LEO has enough flexibility. Plus if it goes south work would be miserable. Oh yeah, and rumors can do lots of damage. I guess it depends on how well the relationship works and how strong the bond is.
