Career is very important, both for male and female. Even as women in previous years weren’t too keen on getting job and becoming independent, modern girls have rather become choosy with their career and do not want to depend on their husband’s job.
But, the disadvantage of being career-oriented is that the career-driven lifestyles don’t offer a truly fulfilling romantic relationship. And, then comes a feeling of emptiness and loneliness.
So, all you pretty, smart and successful ladies out there, we have for you some quick tips that can help you lead to the arms of a loving companion, without compromising on your career.
#1. Measure the time you can devote: You wll need to start with a plan. Evaluate your current lifestyle and habits. Take into consideration all the travels, late hours and even personal health habits when carving out your time. Be honest with yourself. This way, you can build intimacy with another without sacrificing what matters most to you. Also, you will be easily making out time for a date.
#2. Write down your non-negotiables: Are there a few traits in your potential partner that you cannot live without? Zero in on characteristics you enjoy the most in a companion and number them by importance. Writing out these features will give you more flexibility to say no to someone who doesn’t quite meet your standards. It’s equally important to know what you won’t put up with so that you can avoid settling into a relationship ‘just because’.
#3. Recognise the role you play: While filling in the lines of your ideal companion, take note of the kind of partner you will be. Remove the external pressures of society as well as the opinions of those around you and focus on your own values. Be aware of your level of willingness to accept the intimacy relationships bring along. Sharing your life with someone else is a big commitment and the more conscious you are of your intentions, the smoother this transition can be.
#4. Get comfortable saying ‘Yes’: With the plethora of apps and online dating sites, sometimes one of the most impactful things for singles to do is just say ‘yes’ to an invitation in real life. You will likely need to break out of your daily norm to experience new people, and the best way to do that is having the willingness to put yourself in unfamiliar situations.
