Is your career affecting your love life?

So I have been a little stressed and overworked lately. Turns out, when I am super stressed out I am a total nightmare to be around. I know, shocking. I have been stressed before but I didn’t think I really let it impact my love life.

In the past, I would always be able to balance work/career pretty well. Well, not this time, my friends. I actually sent a text message to my guy of interest last week that said “I really don’t feel like being around people right now. I will let you know when I am.” Seriously, who does that!?

I had to call and apologize because that was a clear example of a woman not in her right mind. Sometimes stress and work makes your love life take a nosedive. It’s particularly awful when it was already the pits!

How do you single and professional people do it? When you feel stressed out, is that when you try to date more to distract you?

When you are under a tremendous amount of pressure, do you let your date know or do you pretend it’s all good until the date is over?

Should you take a break from dating until you get some sense of normalcy back in your work life?

I need tips, people! I can’t even be trusted with text messages right now!

Luvbug You say some well-thought, rational responses. why aren’t you dating again?

Thanks. My usual response to that question, when asked in person, is, “I don’t know”…that’s usually followed by me sitting through a longwinded guess (which I’ve never requested).

On this blog, I think it’s because I’m diseased, ugly, loose and/or masculine. LOL

It I tried hard enough, I could probably give a good guess. So far, “I don’t know”…mainly because I don’t. LOL

something is wrong with my cootey

@Luvbug??

that would be the case if u were allowing dudes to slip in and out and then they move on.

But U dont do that so there has to be another reason.

My guess is u are too pre-occupied with urself(u dont even know it) and ur face and demenor does not give the dude, prospecting for chics, the confidence that they can approach u without being shot down.

U gotta train urself to smile a lot(even when u not talking to nobody) and ease up on ur facial contortions..u know that sublime “thirsty” look Ared was talking about yesterday..that tells a dude to “come over here”..in Ared”s words…without also trying too hard,as if u’re a hoe. :lol:

There are chics out there that are so laid back on the face and eyes plus smile and easy to talk to that even if they were to deny a guy the digits,a guy will still walk away with his tail up and his swagger still in high definition! :lol:

Try that and let me know how it works.

PrincessN, right now I am getting no love from the baby girl. She hates me and it’s probably because she and I are together all day every day. She is full of attitude and today I am just not wanting to deal with it. No, it seems I cannot live with myself.

As for the love between the hubby and I, it is good. Not having to rush in every day making dinner and trying to get things done around the house I am a lot more relaxed and have more time to spend with the marido. And then I am also available to run some errands and take care of stuff for him that pertains to his business. This helps him out a lot making him less stressed when he gets home.

@ Raqi, I could see how that’s possible, during the long breaks when she is out of school and I am off work (thanksgiving, spring break, christmas break) by the end Lil Mama and I have had too much of each other and both enjoy a lil break :)

Luvbug, it’s sad but true. A guy that my husband went to school with literally worked himself to death. Mase and I went to the funeral and I was speaking with the wife later that day. She was absolutely devastated because only a couple of people from the man’s job came to the funeral. The boss and the other higher ups didn’t bother to show up or even send their condolences.

That’s why it bothers me so when people put more effort into their careers/jobs than they are willing to put in to maintain their relationships. Be it intimate, family or whatever. Most large corporations don’t care anything about you. And some of the small ones too. They want you to go the extra mile for them yet will not offer a sympathetic hand when you need it. And a lot them wouldn’t dare keep company with you outside of the work environment anyway. Yes I know the purpose of working is to bring in profit for the establishment by which you are employed as well financial gain for yourself. However, none of it is worth dying for.

I saw people that were afraid to take time off to go to the doctor where I used to work. First of all the man that owned that company was not a Scrooge like that. As long as you gave him honest days work and followed the policies of taking time off he was fine. That mindset was one they brought in from wherever they were coming from. I would tell them why kill yourself for any job when you can’t work after you are dead. Or too sick to work. It’s not worth it.

It’s a shame to allow a job to get all the best of you and you have nothing to offer to those you love and love you when you get home. Or those you want to get to loving and loving you.

See!!

to me,u read like a really decent gal..good head on u. But u sound like u so cognizant of the hustle and bustle and competition that characterizes female/guys dating out there and u dont wanna be patently participatory in it.

so, u laid back..u dont encourage dudes to hit on u..subliminaly..which is wrong!!

try to be chatty a lil bit more and get out and have fun.. by urself..in safe,well lit places ofcourse.

Its a game of odds.

The more u out,the more dudes see u and the more u get a chance to talk to different pple.

U going to thank me for this.Trust!

@Lady I just did a remix on your numbers and I’ve made a selection of numbers for Fantasy 5, Mega Millions, and Powerball. So we are good, you know the blog is not going to go IN. LOL about those number players being in the way…the funny thing is most of the players probably had all day to play the numbers.

PrincessN, she is only a year old now. What am I going to do when she gets to be a teenager thinking she is just as grown as I am? LOL
I know what I am not going to do. I am not going to put up with that mess that Christina’s daughter put her through last night, kimmie. She was about to beat the crap out of that boy for no reason because that little girl allowed her to believe that boy hit her. Christina let her know that is a man she was hitting on. Two good punches and he could have taken her out. That little girl is off to a bad start already.

We marry and/or commit to someone with the desire to have and share a life with them, yet we turn around and live for the job and everything but that person. How are we so skewed?

My little nemesis seems to have found her comfort spot lying on my chest now and is about a few seconds from being out and I feel my sleep aid kicking in so imma chat with you all sometime in the near future. You all have a good evening.
