And when I do, the results aren’t the type I’m looking for anyway. Which is why I suggested a shuffling of your priorities.
If you said yes to any of the above, this article is gonna be one great kick in the ass for you.
First of all, it’s difficult to develop a meaningful relationship when both of you are working 60-100 hours as week on a consistent basis.
Add to that (and you mentioned this earlier about yourself), a lot of us get really competitive with our significant others about our careers.
He said sometimes he feels bad because he doesn't want to say no when it comes to plans but doesn't want to say yes and then disappoint. When he couldn't find the time for unrelated plans we tentatively had this week, he then offered his availability for the entire following week to help me when I needed it for installing my show. I mean seriously, the man has a job, works out at the gym and is in a band. She said that in her prior relationships she was with men that wanted all of her time.
Which of course made me feel great that he was going out to of his way to help me, AND plan in advance; at the same time i I'm disappointed that he can't set in stone time to see me before then. If he can meet her twice a week what else is there?
While we take turns making the invites, sometimes it is frustrating - weekdays he works 12 hr days until pm (he works 7 days a week), so his other activities (gym, etc) are strictly scheduled, and I have to be up at am weekdays.I know you recently did a post on dating someone making less money/having more time, and I really enjoyed it.But I also think some of us have an entirely different problem where we date someone who is equally ambitious and busy.I’m guessing there are other readers out there that feel this way, especially when both people are working in the same field, firm, company, etc.How do we deal with this competitive nature so that it doesn’t destruct an otherwise perfectly good relationship?
