Save yourself the trouble of dating a man who can’t make you a priority and learn to recognize these early warning signs of a workaholic.
When you so much as mention that it would be nice to go on a vacation, your boyfriend goes into stress mode, blurting out reasons the trip won’t work.
Whether or not these connections end in romance is besides the point — it's all about creating momentum."From a mindset perspective, you can get stuck in work mode," Davis Edwards says.
To combat this, come up with your own pre-date routine, a small succession of things you always do before a date, that forces you to set aside a little time between work and a date.
"Setting goals for your dating life is really important, especially for workaholics who are time-starved," Davis Edwards says. Will setting that goal make that more disheartening for you?
