Still, I had particular problems dating other people in the same field as me because my competitive instincts came out, and if a guy hadn’t approached things exactly the same way that I had, then I had respect issues. Do you respect the person you’re dating and his or her career choices?
And I think that brings us to the first topic: – Respect. Does a career that pays less, or requires less time, rate lower in your eyes? If you find yourself rolling your eyes when he explains things to you about his career or his job, it may be time to move on.
When his department chair told him to stop running up the phone bill, and his girlfriend told him to move out, he got sick.
I know that outside of office romances, the subject of dating has not really been broached, but I think so many of the corporette-readers probably have had one of these two issues.
On the flip side — do you think he respects what you do, and the time required for it? (I always hear stories of women “hiding shopping bags,” in some cases so their significant others won’t realize how much money they have to spend on frivolous things.
Those stories always make me a bit sad — you shouldn’t feel like you have to hide something from a person you’re serious about, and certainly not from a true partner.) – Lifestyle.
As you have probably figured out, I write on marriage from a Biblical perspective.
I happen to be a Jesus freak who has a desire to see marriages flourishing for our King!
