Journalists are humans, but they’re not quite like the ordinary people we see on the street. They’re smart people, they’re strange, and they’re dirty sometimes. Regardless of these, they’re very caring and faithful people to be around. They’re truthful, serious and very focused people.

Be it a blogger, Journalist, or novelist, writers are unique people, who need to be understood if you want to have a smooth relationship with them.

Your breaking news hub, GhanaNewsPage.com is here again with the unique things you need to know before dating, going to out or marrying a Journalist.

First thing you need to know about a Journalist is, they argue a lot: Journalists like picking your brains out. They like to argue a lot, and disagreeing is what they are known for. But don’t misunderstand this part of them; it’s just the innate need to be absolutely sure of everything manifesting itself in them. Even when they seem to pick up arguments with you, it doesn’t mean they don’t respect or care for you.

They also stay up late; Normal people go to sleep early in the evening, but a journalist is like a hustler trying to get the biggest break of their life, always on the social media, other websites, trying up when everyone else is asleep, and that’s because that is when inspiration comes to them the most. They also like to work in quiet conditions like (Ridwan Karim Dini-Osman) a former colleague with Ghone Tv, so this means you’ll probably sleep alone more often than not. When it happens, don’t feel bad

A journalist will never cheat on you: A journalist know how to ask just the right questions to get the answers he/she want without you having a clue what they’re after. They had to go around stubborn sources all our professional lives, so a simple “Where were you last Saturday?” has nothing on us.

Every Journalist is a doomsayer: This is not anything strange, it’s just the plain truth. Journalists are like Thomas in the Bible who believe in seeing nothing but the obvious and real. Even when there are pointers to the fact that things will turn out positively, most writers don’t buy it until it happens.

A journalist may keep things from you: Journalist do not ignore really well. Odds are, they haven’t slept in days. The only person they’ve been in contact with is their source. Don’t take it personal.

We can’t see straight, words are starting to not make sense and if one more person tells us he or she needs something from us, we’re going to lose our damn minds. So, we haven’t talked to you because it’s for your own safety. Just trust us on that.

Most Journalist say ‘NO’ A LOT: I know journalists are non-conformists. They think and act in exactly how they believe is right. Even for the things you’d easily get a ‘Yes’ from someone else, a writer might say a stern ‘No’.

Remember you You’ll inspire a story immediately you start going out with a journalist: Most journalist I know write about their environment and surroundings. They write about the things they see and observe, including the people they close to the most (Environmental journalist). If you’re amazing to them, they’ll probably write a wonderful piece about you, otherwise, they’ll still tell it all.
