In our dating life, we meet various kinds of people from various backgrounds, various cultures, and various professions. Every person is different from one another and their mindsets also vary according to their professional and personal commitments, priorities and preferences. But there is only one category of people where they all seem similar, though they come from different professions and those are the people who are Workaholics. Regardless, what profession they are in, their major motto is to work their asses off to keep themselves busy every single day. For these people, work is the major preference than anything and anyone else. Indeed, they have forever dated the work they do.
But, work can't fulfill all the materialistic, bodily, mental and emotional pressures. Hence, these workaholics also choose to date people as their second major preference to make their life a bit exciting rather than striving hard for a monotonous lifestyle. Dating the workaholics is torturous for sure. It's good to see your partner in achieving his or her goals, but it feels bad when they consider you as their next priority after their career or work. Many people get fed up dealing with these workaholics because of over possessiveness, insecurities, negligence, reckless behavior and many negative traits. Hence, there are few ways to handle these workaholics while dating them to have a peaceful dating or relationship or committed life.
Dating workaholics is a different scenario and take you to another level of disappointments if you expect so much from them because, at the end of the day, they strive to have a good life with you. So try to understand them, rather than keep on comparing them with others.
Others may hang out every day and have n number of regular dates, but the futuristic approach of those people can never be better than your workaholic partner. So, please don't complain about regular hangouts and become another pressure for them. Instead, you plan for cozy hangouts on weekends or whenever your partner is free.
Understanding your workaholic partner is the only aspect you must focus on while dating them because they expect you to understand their working situations and schedules. If you can understand them to the core, then only you can survive to be with them in love, marriage or relationship.
Do not expect much in the aspects of a typical dating life. Because your dating life depends on your partners' work hours and schedules.
Your sleeping timings must be always scheduled according to your partners' working hours because sometimes you need to be awake in the midnight and early mornings to talk to your partner if he/she works with an MNC or so.
Adjustments can be seen in any relationships, but the level of adjustments could be a bit more if you date a workaholic. And also you must accept for yourself that you are his/her second priority because he/she treats his/her work as a priority to fulfill all the wishes of you as their second priority. So try to adjust for a few things.
Time is everything for them and if you complain about time issues with them, then you must better come out of the relationship because you won't be left with any choice rather than accepting their time constraints on your relationship. But whenever the time is available, you will be the first one who pops up in their mind. So, think about it.
Though you are his/her dating partner, workaholics also have their families and they just need some space to spend time with them. Most of us have trust issues with our partners if they don't spend their free time with us, but you must know that they too have their life to deal with.
Speaking about trust issues, you can happily feel relaxed in this context. Because, when they don't even have time to manage you, how can you even expect them to be sleeping with someone else and dating another person at the same time?
Yes, a little bit of flirting is common in the workplace and you must ignore it until and unless the so-called workaholic partner work so much than a regular basis to flirt with someone at his/her office. At this moment, you must act smart and handle it in a bit bitchy way.
The workplace is the home for your workaholic partners. So get habituated in listening to all the workplace stories they share with you. You will get to know every colleague of them than knowing their family members. Because for every workaholic guy, the peers, subordinates and the bosses are real family members.
Try to strike conversations with them regarding their work-related issues more often. Because they love to share their work stress, work appraisals and everything about their work with someone they like. So, be active in hearing them rather than acting like perverts and hypocrites.
Also, be prepared and get habituated with your partners' work trips. Sometimes, you people have to be oceans far from each other and in some unfortunate times, you must also be prepared for working out long-distance too, which depends on the mutual decision of you and your partner too.
So, it's all about understanding each other. Dealing workaholics, is difficult, but the love they share is inexplicable and incomparable. They think about the bright future and they strive hard to provide you everything you wish for. The time constraints are limited, but whenever they are free, they love to spend time with you. They make you feel special in society by uplifting your social status. They never degrade you for the work you do because they worship their work as a god. They make you feel secure in every possible way. There are more cons than pros in dating a workaholic person, but those limited pros are more than enough to dominate all the cons in dating them. Patience, Understanding abilities, time constraints, respect, love, care, and affection, are the most needed traits to date a workaholic person.
