I'd say yes. I like to know what the guy I'm dating does and why he does it. Sometimes I think I have a general understanding of what someone does, but when they explain it I realize all of the little intricate details I'm missing. Plus, people like to talk about their jobs and what goes on at work, and I'd like to be a sounding board sometimes if the guy wants to talk; knowing a bit about what he does kinda helps.

Another thing: sometimes what someone does will be their life's work. I would feel not so good if my SO didn't care or wasn't interested in what I could potentially be doing for the rest of my life. I think work defines people alot in this country....usually one of the first things someone says after the introduction is "what do you do?"
