Dating a police officer
In fact it is even more important for you to become self-dependent if you are planning to live with your cop partner.
He/she will rarely have enough time to help out with grocery-shopping or running errands.
Instead your partner needs to know that you support him/her and needs to be able to do his job correctly – which is not possible if you keep obsessing about his/her safety and call him/her up twenty times a day.
Be independent Since you cannot depend upon your partner to give you company on all evenings, you need to be responsible for your own socializing.
Be flexible And yet the very nature of the job which makes law enforcement an object of public respect also makes it difficult and unpredictable.
Be open to socializing with others Cops often form strong bonds with co-workers or work partners because their lives depend upon effective teamwork.
And an important way to nurture this bonding is to socialize with other cop families.
So if your partner wants to take you along to meet his/her friends and their families, don’t refuse outright.
So avoid asking a lot of questions which he/she may be uncomfortable answering.
At the same time though let your partner know that you are there for them should they need your support for some reason.
