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.
