We all live busy lives but we should be able to make time for the people and things that are important to us. So if you happen to find yourself dating – or attempting to date – a raging workaholic, you should be prepared. People who are career-driven or supremely focused on work or school tend to neglect their mates.
You have to decide early on what you can and can not handle. I remember dating one guy just as he was starting his own business. His phone rang incessantly and he did not know the meaning of “off” days. I had to set boundaries!
His work schedule was a real problem at first. I tried to throw tantrums, give ultimatums, and even staged a sit-in in my man’s office. If you really care about your workhorse, you should speak up when you are feeling like you are all alone in the relationship.
Have you ever dated someone who was so driven and focused that it was difficult to maintain a relationship?
Are you guilty of neglecting your dating life or your relationship because of work?
