10 Reasons To Date A Nurse

Users on Facebook have virtually given birth to a new user-generated genre: The “Ten Reasons Why You Should Date an XYZ (name of your profession goes here) List.”

Lists have been published for Why You Should Date a Single Mom, a Geek, a Wrestler and hundreds of other categories.
