To Date A Book Hunter

Via: WeHeartIt
Dating a book hunter is probably the hardest thing to do. By far worse than dating an avid book reader. We're constantly on the prowl. We're looking for a gem among other gems. It's not easy to love a book hunter. No, sir.  Not in a long shot. And attempting to tame us is the greatest mistake you can make. 

The other day, I read "You Should Date An Illiterate Girl" by Charles Warnke, a short instructional story that advises you not to date a bookworm of the fair sex. The narrator has obviously had a falling out with a female reader who realized what a loser he was. It was thought provoking, which is great because otherwise Thought Catalog is taking its name loosely. Over at Tumblr, however, someone posted a response story, entitled "Date A Girl Who Reads." Unlike it's counterpart, Rosemarie Urquico's instructional story falls short. If anything, it might deter the reader from every wanting to date a girl who reads. Though, this book hunter strongly advises never to date - as Urquico suggests at the end - to date a girl who writes. Never date writers. You'll do it, but you shouldn't. 

Until next time, keep on huntin'.
