I had an interesting conversation with one of my clients earlier today who came to me to ask about how to manage a relationship when your significant other seems to have no free time to devote to nurturing your relationship. This problem is becoming more and more common and I find myself working with individuals and couples on a regular basis who are struggling to preserve their relationships because one or both of them are just so busy. The biggest issue that I see when a person comes to me for help with finding a better balance in their relationship is that they are feeling undervalued and there is a lack of communication. When one person is consistently absent and too busy for a relationship , it can make it very difficult to lay out a solid foundation and to preserve a sense of well being and fulfillment in the relationship. That said, I want you to rest assured that there ARE solutions available to you! His name was Harold, and he was running a successful tech startup company.
Dating an extremely busy man
The new site update is up! Recently, I met a guy who’s pretty extraordinary, enough to make me realise how much talking-myself-into-it I’ve done about other crushes and flings in the past few years. He’s smart, curious about the world, quick-witted and funny enough to make me cry laughing, totally attractive, kind, politically right-on, polite to waiters, a fellow smoker Even the first time we had sex was pretty good, with all the qualities I like in a partner and lots of laughing and both of us getting off repeatedly.
The only thing is, he’s insanely busy, work and then school and then other school and then some. I actually find this pretty attractive, as my usual routine is being The Busiest Person You Know hence, single!
Him: “Hey sorry, I’ve been really busy. Maybe There’s a really high chance that the “too busy” guy (or girl) isn’t any busier than the rest of us.
Although my schedule can be hectic at times, I do make sure I add balance to the equation women tend to be better at this than men. Sorry fellas J. Nourishing the relationship is essential to the survivability of the relationship. So if you are like me and you tend to date busy people, I want to offer you a few suggestions. Wait, before my suggestions, let me say this. What do I mean by that? If the relationship is new, you two may both genuinely like one another, but you may not be on the same page yet when it comes to giving a certain level of effort.
Sometimes they barely have time for themselves, and integrating you into their schedule is a process, and definitely requires understanding and patience.
I’m dating a really busy guy, where should I fit into his list of priorities?
I’ve been dating my boyfriend for 3 months now and from the minute I met him I had this feeling he was “the one”. He has so many great qualities including being really hard working, responsible, great leadership qualities etc. The problem is that he is really, really legitimately busy all the time and while I was OK with his busyness initially, I’m not sure how to deal with it anymore.
He works most weekends as a paramedic 12 hour shifts and is also in school full time. Any weekends he’s not working he is getting caught up on assignments. I work a normal , Monday to Friday job..
This is what happens in real life and not online. Of course, many women are not happy and try to convince him to play some other sports because its more fun, which makes the situation worse for him. My friends and I were still a bit uncomfortable in France and when I came there I. Of course, a lot of them are shy of meeting women, but thats normal too. I had spent a lot of time in the country and knew a lot of French people already.
I liked that this gave me an unusual focus and made me look good by comparison to everyone else in a competition with which I excelled. Of course, being the only guy at first does not hurt you, but soon you will realize that in order to be liked by the majority its all about what you do rather than appearances. The same applies with men in particular, make sure youre ready and if any other guys you want to introduce have interest with you then do it. I didnt move for any specific reason, apart from living in Paris.

Time is a precious commodity. Our lives our finite.
But I also think some of us have an entirely different problem where we date someone who is equally ambitious and busy. Add to that and you mentioned this earlier about yourself , a lot of us get really competitive with our significant others about our careers. My SO and I are both in the legal field and want to practice the same kind of law in the same city. And are some people just too competitive that they might as well find someone in a different field of work?

How to Date an Over-Achieving, Busy Guy
Other than communication, quality time is probably one of the top necessities of a successful relationship. But in a world where the number of promising dating options are limited, it may be necessary for women to take a quality-over-quantity approach to choosing someone. Have you ever heard the saying time is money? Well for some busy men, that saying is all too real. Another characteristic of busy men is travel. They live out of a suitcase in order to provide for themselves and others.
Dating a busy man can be hard on both parties. Although he has proven to you the sincerity of his feelings and shows that he wants to make.
I also often make him a snack plate for right when he gets home and leave it on the counter so he can eat as soon as he comes in, because he’s always forgetting to eat when he litigates and not eating makes him the crankiest person on the planet. The best things you can do for someone who is this busy and works this hard is to try to show them affection in ways that RELIEVE their stress and that don’t demand time.
At least with litigators, there are periods of insane business and periods of more normal hours, and I always know the normal hours we’ll have more time together. I have had a busy to insane schedule in the many years I’ve been with my husband — but always found time to spend with him. I’d hang loose right now, as the ball is definitely in your romantic interest’s court. But I have to say that really keen people find the opportunities to see and talk to the people they are keen on.
That this isn’t happening suggests your level of interest may be greater than his. And by the way, apparently extraordinary people like this guy may be around because they make a practice of really never being truly available. Sometimes people stay away from making a commitment, because they prefer to be in control of the relationship, or because they like the flattery of being pursued and desired, or because they are not willing to trust someone else to accept their off stage persona.
