Perils of dating a workaholic male
by Cherie-Burbach When I first began Internet dating, I was a marketing director for one of Milwaukee’s largest construction firms, I went to school full-time, and I was working on publishing a book of poetry.And yet, I wondered, why hadn’t I met the right person yet?Most of these I’ve found by research and have not actually seen myself.(Many of them being not available online, or translated online.) So if a title ends up being of poor quality, don’t blame the messenger, this page is just a resource.So before you reach DATE, how can you tell whether the other person is getting invested?You can ask, of course, and I always encourage you to do that.I could pop in, chat for an hour (which was always my personal rule) and then be on my way.It was merely another meeting I mentally checked off my ever-growing list of to-do’s. But hey, I figured, if he can’t understand that I’m a busy girl with a life of my own then he wasn’t worth his salt. It wasn’t until I had met one man via email, who was slightly older than me, with kids and a business he started up and had recently expanded.
I approached Internet dating like another work project.
For example, it will list whether it is a drama or movie (or movie short), whether it can be listed as gay, lesbian, or trans, whether the plotline in question is the main point of the movie (be it romantic or just issues based) or if it’s just a side character, and finally, for those of you out there looking of these types of titles, there are soooo many of them which end horribly (we’re not just talking heartbreak here), so when possible we’ve put in a little hint.
Disclaimer: A title showing up in this list is, in no way, an endorsement.
And sure, the occasional guy would gripe because I’d have to reschedule our dates… He sounded smart and interesting and I was intrigued by his emails. I scheduled the date on my calendar for the next week, but as the date approached I realized there was no way I’d be able to make the time and called him to cancel.
He was gracious and we continued to talk on the phone, each time I was anxious to get him off the line because I figured I’d have time to get to know him once we met.
