    Also, it's interesting to see the turn this topic is taking

    (but not extremely surprising...)
    I meant the gender discussion.

    But face it. Alchemy is an occupation for (mostly male) nerds. And it has been like that for centuries.

    Maybe Alchemy just needs a bit of a sex appeal facelift. We could do an AF Calendar and sell it to naughty nanny's at the retirement homes

    Nothing like a bunch of blokes, handing out, fermenting their own piss on the weekends to get the ladies really keen to join in the fun.

    Once you've got them hooked on your badass batch of blackening urine, that's when you hit them with the, "this will take me decades and most likely get me nowhere!" card, and they're ripe for the picking.

    You just have to do the stone. Besides others thing it is said to attract women as well. Or at least the gold will do the trick.

    There are Alchemists in successful relationships, but compromises most likely have to be made... Again, unless your partner is also an Alchemist.

    Maybe because this Art mostly attracts males (or so it seems), perhaps it can be a tad more challenging for hetero males to find partnerships... Especially for those distilling putrefied urine in their apartments

    The best solution IMO is to have your separate shed/lab-space for Alchemy (most Alchemist that I know do), and your marriage/partnership will likely remain mostly unaffected. Mostly

    However, some of the most dedicated Alchemists I know ended up divorced and mostly alone, which can open up the option of having a non-committed partner (or fuck-buddy, for those so inclined) who also physically resides elsewhere.

    Those 2 posts may be worth reading, or at least entertaining:

    The promise of all the gold jewelry they could want. Of course, he who succeeds in this wooing, and manages to somehow make the stone, will soon have to take up jewelry smithing. No gold will be sold, it's all just for making bracelets and purse accents, hehe.

    Actually, now that I'm saying this, such a relationship would probably not be a good thing in the end. Always better (for me at least) to find someone humble, and they'd have to be pretty darn humble to look past feculant urine.

    That's because the humongous "test tube" attracting her unmitigated attention is just right past that electrical device

    That's until you start showing the artificial gold & silver. Then everybody seems to "mysteriously" be interested.
