Dating site for lawyers

Have you ever wanted an online dating forum where you can meet other attorneys from around the country? Tired of those generic dating sites that make you sift through boring teachers, accountants, and sales people when all you want is a creative, affluent, and attractive lawyer?

The Dolce Network has just the thing for you! It’s Lawdate.com, apparently the first site that is exclusively for attorneys (or those looking for one.) Wendy C. Freedman, a lawyer who launched the site, said this site allows like-minded eligible men and women connect (who all are apparently “creative, affluent, and attractive” professionals).

If you didn’t meet your potential attorney spouse in law school, through your firm, or any other legal contacts, here’s another way to make that legal union happen.

Last time I checked, there were more than 1,000 people who belonged to the site. Although the company is hyping the site’s launch as this week, I think it must have been localized to California for a while based on the location and number of people on it already.

And just as I suspected, there are more women than men on the site. That’s typically how it is in the real and online dating worlds.

In conversations with co-workers and friends, most agree that we don’t want to marry someone in the same profession as us. While it’d be nice to come home to someone who can relate to your work life, it’s also nice to leave that life at the office. Being married to another doctor, teacher, or attorney may lead to more conversations about work, and really, who wants to spend their off hours discussing legal briefs or blood pressure?

If you’d rather date some other kind of affluent professional, The Dolce Network plans on launching TheDr.Date.com, CapitolHillDate.com, and EntertainmentIndsturyDate.com.

  1. "associates are becoming more mercenary. The path to partnership has become longer and more difficult so they are chasing short-term gains like high compensation." GOOD FOR THEM! HELL THERE OUGHT TO BE A UNION!

  2. Let's be honest. A glut of lawyers out there, because law schools have overproduced them. Law schools dont care, and big law loves it. So the firms can afford to underpay them. Typical capitalist situation. Wages have grown slowly for entry level lawyers the past 25 years it seems. Just like the rest of our economy. Might as well become a welder. Oh and the big money is mostly reserved for those who can log huge hours and will cut corners to get things handled. More capitalist joy. So the answer coming from the experts is to "capitalize" more competition from nonlawyers, and robots. ie "expert systems." One even hears talk of "offshoring" some legal work. thus undercutting the workers even more. And they wonder why people have been pulling for Bernie and Trump. Hello fools, it's not just the "working class" it's the overly educated suffering too.

  3. And with a whimpering hissy fit the charade came to an end ... http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2016/07/27/all-charges-dropped-against-all-remaining-officers-in-freddie-gray-case/ WHISTLEBLOWERS are needed more than ever in a time such as this ... when politics trump justice and emotions trump reason. Blue Lives Matter.

  4. "pedigree"? I never knew that in order to become a successful or, for that matter, a talented attorney, one needs to have come from good stock. What should raise eyebrows even more than the starting associates' pay at this firm (and ones like it) is the belief systems they subscribe to re who is and isn't "fit" to practice law with them. Incredible the arrogance that exists throughout the practice of law in this country, especially at firms like this one.

  5. Finally, an official that realizes that reducing the risks involved in the indulgence in illicit drug use is a great way to INCREASE the problem. What's next for these idiot 'proponents' of needle exchange programs? Give drunk drivers booze? Give grossly obese people coupons for free junk food?
