You’ve been out of the dating game for some time now. In some ways, it hasn’t been all bad. It’s given you more time to focus on your career, and that extra effort is really shown in the quality of your work. That said, now that you’re on your way up in your professional sphere, you’d like to find someone to keep you company at the top.
Here, then, are a few things to keep in mind as you engage in some high-powered professional dating in Orlando.
Don’t Date “Yourself”
So, you think you’ve finally met the perfect person. They like all the same movies you do, the same music, same books, same shows, they’re involved in the same industry—wait, are you just “dating yourself?” This is a common problem when it comes to dating, and it’s especially prevalent in the world of professional dating. You’re so used to “getting what you want” that your first instinct might well be to go after someone remarkably similar to yourself. That said, you have to stop and ask yourself—do you really love them, or are you just in love with yourself…or the idea of being “in love” at that?
Balancing Public and Private Life
By far the most challenging part of the equation, for most looking into professional dating, is balancing work life with dating. The most important thing to realize here is that there isn’t a “one size fits all” solution. If this person truly cares for you, they’ll understand if you need to work a little later every now and then. That said, if you truly care for them, you might want to consider rescheduling a meeting here or there, if that’s what’s necessary, in order for you to spend time with this person.
It’s a balancing act, and it is after all balance which the best professional singles are able to bring to one another’s lives.
