So, I started messaging with this dude, who seems cool, and cute, and things in common, etc.

One "problem" —we are both consultants in a similar field (in the same city). I'm not sure if that is a deal breaker or not. We wouldn't be directly competing for clients all the time, but it could come up (and we know some of the same people professionally). Will this be weird? I can imagine that there would be some things about work that I wouldn't be able to talk about, but I could see it getting weird. Then again I'm getting ahead of myself, we haven't even met yet and I haven't been in a relationship in over a year.

I think I'm partly worried about this because I'm just starting out in my career and I don't want to do anything "improper" in any way.
