5 Jobs for Romantics

There’s a romantic buried deep within all of us. It is stronger in some of us than others though. However, you don’t have to confine your desires to the latest romance flick or your dreams. No, you can make it into a career. There are jobs for hot-blooded romantics just like you all around. In this article, we’re going to focus on just five of them. If you want to find out more, keep reading.

#1 Writer

Becoming a writer is a great way to make your imagination work for you. Put those dreams on paper and make money from it. You can write in so many different romance genres. It starts from the sweet little romances you grew up with as a teenager all the way to the raunchy debauchery you’d rather not admit to knowing anything about. Whatever you’re into, there’s a genre for you.

Writers don’t require any qualifications, although a creative writing degree from a local college can go a long way.

#2 Matchmaker

What better ways to indulge your passion for romance than helping others find true love?

Matchmakers have the job of helping people get together. You will spend your days taking other people’s best traits and matching them up with people with similar traits. It’s a tough job, and you will witness a lot of broken hearts, but you’ll also see long-term relationships blossoming in front of your eyes.

There are courses available that matchmakers can take, such as those from the Matchmaking Institute.

#3 Marriage Counsellor

Sometimes marriages are on the rocks, and people need help. Now you can help keep those romantic flames alive by becoming a marriage counsellor. You’ll listen to couples from all backgrounds, and you’ll help them work through their problems from an objective point of view. It can be a stressful job, but most marriage counsellors say that they find it to be an incredibly rewarding one.

To become a marriage counsellor in the US, you will require at least a master’s degree and a licence to operate in your state. The requirements per state do vary, however.

#4 Sex Therapist

Yes, yes, we know. Sex doesn’t necessarily go with love. They’re two different things. What we can’t deny is that sex is a major part of any healthy relationship. If things go wrong in bed, things usually go wrong out of bed. Don’t underestimate how important physical satisfaction is to people, even if they seem like the biggest prudes in the world. The quality of sex matters for both parties.

A sex therapist will help couples get things right. It won’t involve you having to get physical yourself, but you will encourage people to get over their insecurities and indulge in their desires. In most cases, most sexual problems can be alleviated simply by talking about it. Believe it or not, the fact people don’t talk about it often lies at the heart of the problem.

Trainee sex therapists must gain a degree in a mental health support field, such as marriage and family counselling. You will also need to experience a certain number of hours in a clinical setting.

 #5 Lyricist

Sometimes we can’t find the right words to say to our significant other. This is where you come in. A major growth industry for romantics is the lyricist industry. You’ll write romantic songs; help people write letters, and show people how they can better communicate with the ones they love. It’s not all about poetry. It can involve anything from writing those funny poems on greetings cards to sending people personalised love songs.

Take note that you will need a good grasp of language. A strong vocabulary is essential to your success in this job. Typically, you’ll enjoy writing and being able to play some sort of instrument is a plus. The best part about this job is you can take it on part-time, so you can give it a try before making any form of long-term commitment. See how you get on!

There are no required qualifications for this field, although experience will play a factor.
