Dating a workaholic man
You prepared breakfast for your boyfriend but he just took a sip of his coffee and then went off to work.
You prepared a surprise anniversary dinner for him but he came home late from work and he even forgot that it was your anniversary.
Just because your best friend and her husband enjoy quality time every day, that doesn’t mean you and your husband should do the same.
Don’t forget that your partner has a different job, believes in different work ethics and, mostly importantly, is a different person.
Accept That Her Job Comes First This is one of the tips on dating a workaholic hardest to swallow: When you date a workaholic, it’s important to accept that her job comes first.
Expecting otherwise is a great way to set yourself up for disappointment.
He may not know the effects of his actions to your relationship unless you tell him.
For example, if his meeting with the client was not successful, he might still feel upset even if you are trying your best to make him feel good.
Workaholics may not always be on their phone, but they have the tendency to still do their work even when it is your quality time.
So if you are in the middle of a romantic dinner and his boss suddenly calls, well you just have to deal with it.
If he is too focused on his work, the tendency is he might not appreciate the things you are doing for him, like the romantic dinner, the sweet home decoration or the cute dress you wear for him.
