Being an entrepreneur is constantly talked about on blogs and articles, but do we often shed light on dating an entrepreneur?
If you’re working a 9-to-5 job, with a boss and teammates like most people, and relatively speaking you can leave your work at the office wherever the business is.
Although the entrepreneurship world can seem exciting, adventurous and intimidating, unfortunately, it also has its downfalls, as there are a few very serious decisions to make before dating someone caught up in that crazy world.
Sorry to burst your bubble, but here’s what’s in store for you:
#1. Being Put On the Backburner
Often times, entrepreneurs can be really caught with their schedules which make it hard for them to find some quality time to focus on you. In addition, you’ll sometimes feel left out simply due to the fact that they’ll put their venture before you.
Most of them are seriously too devoted to their work and will spend most of the day working on a project.
Having a chat with them once in a while regarding the matter might help. But it’s important to recall that people find it hard to change.
#2. No Time for Vacations
Entrepreneurs also find it hard to make time for recreational activities like taking that much-needed vacation.
Prepare for the following:
Waking up to find him or her working; come home and meet him or her working, and go to sleep before them because they are still “working”.
Success requires a lot of dedication and hard work. Entrepreneurs are well aware of that. So be prepared to cope with them working ungodly hours. If you are fond of taking long vacations, kiss them goodbye.
You might manage to convince your partner to go out or take a trip, but it will take long for them to pack or put their files away.
#3. They Think They Have to Do It All
This is something most people fail to emphasize on. Quite a number of entrepreneurs are too full of themselves as they often believe they are the best and need no help.
This is simply because some people really do require this from them.
It’s not going to be easy but try as much as possible to give them your utmost support, and most importantly, listen to what they have to say.
Although you might offer to help, they will still continue to think they can totally do it by themselves.
#4. You’ll be on a Bumpy Ride with Them
Also, be prepared for the bumps on the road, as you are committed to going on a crazy trip with them.
It can be exciting at times, but for those of you who crave stability… It’ll be a tough one!
This might not be a problem if both of you decide just to date. However what if you want to start a family with them?
Be certain as to whether or not you’ll be able to cope with their lifestyle and determine if you’ll be comfortable with such a crazy experience.
After sorting that out, try and figure out what you really want in life.
Similar Perspectives and Life Goals
When it does happen, it can be a magical and special experience to love an entrepreneur and share their excitement as you build a business and life together.
If everything works out perfectly, it can be an exciting and amazing experience to date an entrepreneur, and most importantly share their success as you build a business and a better life together.
