I've seen a common theme when it comes to articles online about dating : "X Reasons Why You should Date a Girl that Reads", "X Reason Why you Should Date a Dude that Reads." And I get it! I really do. Date a girl that reads, heck, I'm a girl that reads so I should be on my side.
By why do we romanticize the qualities of someone that reads?
I think all the qualities we associate with someone that read are the same:
Great conversation, wit, humor, and intelligence. Someone who is romantic and looks at the world differently
Mark Grist puts it into a poem perfectly:

"A girl with passion, wit, and dreams."

And aren't those the qualities we should look for in a partner anyway?

So I'm challenging this idea of "dating someone that reads" and instead challenging us all to become the person that reads.

For your future partner/friends/relationships.
Learn about a new subject, dive into knowledge, and become the conversationalist you would expect from your partner.
Sharing with my book-loving friends.

Do you look for a partner that reads?

@shannonl5 I was that kid who's always carrying multiple books lol
@RafaelRese18 definitely a lot lighter! Especially if you end up finishing one book and needing to carry a second one with you...
