Dating As A Gay Professional
Gay Dating | April 10, 2017
Finding a balance in both work and life is not only important but also possible. While some people may find that they log too many late hours at the office at the expense of their personal life (or vice versa), these tips will allow you to achieve a sense of balance between the two.
- Prioritize: Recognize That 50/50 Balance Is Not Possible
Balance in life does not mean that your work and dating life have to be managed equally. Accept that sometimes your professional life has to come first. Success in both your personal life and work is not about quantity but rather quality.
- Practice Good Time Management Skills
There are countless articles on the topic of time management. Having good time management skills ensures that you are accomplishing the work side of your life as productively and efficiently as possible so that you can devote time to your personal life on the weekends.
- Carve Out Time For Both: Be Deliberate
Carving out specific time for work and dating life (for example, Friday and Saturday nights are for dating) allows us to be intentional about our time. If you write it down in your calendar, you are more likely to see the task through. Over time, this will become a habit and achieving some balance (remember, not 50/50 balance) will eventually be the norm.
If you have to travel on business for an extended period of time, consider devoting time specifically to your personal life at your earliest convenience — that is what balance is all about.
- Keep The Two Separate
To have a successful professional career and a successful relationship, both must be kept separate from each other. When you are at work, commit fully and when you are on a date, don’t allow thoughts of work to get in the way of developing a relationship with someone.
- Consider A Professional Matchmaking Service
Our professional lives can make it difficult to find time to meet someone — especially someone that is suitable. Although some gay dating websites match people on the basis of algorithms, these relationships do not always work out for some reason for other. In order to make the most of our time, matchmaking services may offer the best path to success. Matches are hand-selected as opposed to generated by computers, which facilitate the meeting of two people based on a deeper level.
