Things to Know When Dating a PR Girl

So you found yourself hanging out with this girl who works in public relations, but what does that even mean? She’s organized and outgoing but she can be so demanding sometimes! There are a few things you need to know before dating a girl who works in the competitive PR world. We warned you first. 


She is determined

Working from her laptop on the weekend or taking conference calls is part of her work. When it comes to her clients she puts in the time to get them the credit they deserve. Expect this to be one of the most challenging but rewarding relationships you will ever have.

Communication is Key

If you mix up you’re and your in texts to her. She will most definitely correct you. The way to over this communication girl is to always be up front and say what you really mean. 

She knows news

Don’t be surprised when she brings up breaking news you haven’t even heard about yet. It's her job to be on top of how her clients can utilize breaking headlines. For example, if a story about texting and driving goes viral she will craft a story for her cellphone client. She may excitedly tell you "x client can write a blog post on how to best stop teens from texting and driving". Her mind is always analyzing what people are talking about. 

She could be a lawyer

Don’t start an argument with this girl unless you have facts to back it up. Be prepared to face a strategic communicator with a sharp memory. If you only started a fight to blow off steam than you're with the wrong gal. 

She thinks about photos & social media more than most people

“Which hashtag should I use on this post?” or “What would be the best time to post this on Instagram?” are typical phrases you will hear. Along with "Can you believe Martha posted that?". If she offers advice for your social media image she's only trying to help. It's nothing personal. Oh, and don’t you DARE touch that calamari appetizer before she snaps a pic of it!

She knows EVERYONE

You could be at the grocery store near midnight on a Tuesday and she will still manage to run into someone she knows. After awhile it will just become the usual. Sorry, everyone knows everyone in the biz.

Expect to Plan Ahead

Last minute plans to visit your grandparents this weekend? Don’t think so. This girl most likely has her planner full of to-dos and meetings for weeks. This doesn’t mean she can’t have fun. But spontaneous trips can be the biggest source of anxiety… or finding out how to kindly cancel.

She finds it hard to relax

A publicist doesn't earn national media coverage for clients by sitting on the couch. Since she works so hard during the week it will probably spill over on the weekend. t’s a type A, communication, perfection obsession thing. Don’t make her explain it. Just understand it’s a thing. 

She expects the best

This girl is going to expect the best from you. In return, you will have the most thoughtful, hardworking and loyal partner. Us PR girls can be a lot to handle but there are a lot of things that make us great girlfriends. At the end of the day, what matters the most to us are relationships. Whether it's regarding our client or significant other that is what fulfills our lives. If you can win her over, that PR girl will give you her best.

What exactly is PR & why do I need it?

One of the hardest things about working in public relations is getting people to fully understand not only the importance of PR, but what PR actually is. Sure we all have heard of PR, but how many of us can truly explain what it is & what a PR company does—my guess is not many.  Here at CultureHype we live, breathe & sleep PR—it’s who we are and what we do. So for us, it is extremely important that we share with you all what exactly PR is & why you or your business may need it.

What is PR?

PRSA defines public relations as “a strategic communication process that builds mutually beneficial relationships between organizations & their publics.”

Now that is a more extreme way to describe PR, so to simply put it PR is the process that connects you to the public. It’s what gets clients on TV, in the papers, on the web or radio. It utilizes social media to promote business’ news, articles, stories, or engage with its customers on a personal level. It helps clients develop strategies to build relationships with the media & public. And yes at times, there is some party or event planning.

So why do I need it?

Now that you know exactly what PR is and some of the different aspects that make up public relations, you might wonder, “Do I actually need this”? And the truth is if you or your company have a story to be heard (which believe me everyone does) then PR is for you. PR is a matter of telling your story to the public and if you don’t, someone else will, or worse no one will ever hear it.

If I were down to my last dollar, I’d spend it on PR.

Good PR can only lead to further your success and help you reach your goals. Think of us as storytellers, brand ambassadors or "super fans".  Not many people think that there's a person responsible for your new favorite band who played SNL, or that book review - but there's PR everywhere!
