Dating a very busy man
The thing that ends up being sacrificed is communication.
I am facing some issues that seem to all come down to a lack of communication.
I met this great (if impossibly busy) guy and we became incredibly close very quickly.
The first time we hung out one-on-one was the second time we had ever met. Talking through the night, sharing deep secrets and dreams, teasing each other silly and laughing to the point where bodily fluids escaped.
We took a 4 hour road trip to my family’s ranch in Mendocino and stayed for 3 days. (FYI: Those were the ONLY fluids exchanged that weekend.) It was a magical connection.
We tried on the Romance Hat (cousin to Hogwarts’ Sorting Hat) and the moment it touched our heads it yelled out “Doom and Gloom!
And although his off-season schedule will be comparatively lighter, he will still need to train to keep his body in shape.
This cannot be avoided, especially if your boyfriend has a successful career.
If you have an often absent, always too busy for life boyfriend, you may be feeling like you are on the deck of a sinking ship.
He goes to college, has a part time job and plays sport - so he doesn’t have a lot of spare time.
We meet up once or twice a week and talk on the phone every day.
We could talk for hours about ourselves, our lives, our ideas and that was when we really felt close. I was more busy with work than he was at the time and I was amazed at how attentive and excited about the relationship he was… He has such limited free time and such an inflexible schedule that our time together is either sleeping, eating or getting little things done.
I have tried to be really understanding about this transition for him and make an effort to let him have space when he needs it, support when he needs it and just fall asleep next to me when he needs it.
