Many of us work really hard and long hours every week. This can obviously make dating a bit of a challenge. Carving out time for a social life is important, though. All work and no play keeps perpetually single!
There are other ways that our jobs can impact our dating options. My friend Carl makes extra money as a bartender. A lot of his shift is spent shamelessly flirting with women, much to his girlfriend’s chagrin. His last girlfriend could not handle it and he met his current girlfriend while tending bar. I wonder how long before she also takes issue with his workplace flirting.
Have you ever dated someone who worked way too many hours? Was it a real struggle to get them to leave work? How do you manage to balance work and play so that you get go on dates?
What would you do if the person you were seeing had a job that made you uncomfortable? Do you bring it up or respect their decision to hustle for money they way that they see fit?
