Is there a profession, for gongs or shous, that you think would kill any possibilty of good romance.  I wonder how you would write a good romance story about a sewage treatment facility manager or a call center worker….

Rara: That’s a good question. I do know several danmei where MC and ML work on minimum wage, ex-convict, live in a garbage house, garbageman. I think they are still a good romance, but almost all the aforementioned BLs, they r bittersweet romance. When the profession get too real and there is no cinderella story, it’s not a fairytale anm but a slice 


SoothingSweets: High rank business jobs sometimes. You may hear things about these people being so dedicated to work that they really don’t have time for relationships or a family. They could be married, but they may both have the same workaholic mind

for me, any job is possible for a good romance.

although for some jobs, the story would be fiiled with sacrifices (of time, money, career, loved ones, etc) and bitter moments (imagine a doctor with his lover who is a stage 4 cancer patient)
even a delivery man or a trash truck driver can have a good romance as long as the author has the ability to weave the story.

If the romance is fantasy, then the professions shouldn’t matter. They could still bexoenned living an idyllic life, once home; just no eating out at expensively, designer clothes, or jetting around the planet.
A long distance lorry driver, travelling salesman, or circuit speaker of sone kind, would make it hard, as they’d be away too much.
