Finding love is hard, but what’s even harder is being able to have both a thriving career and a great love life. It seems that in the 21st century, this is not an attainable goal and that we must pick one or the other.
But it shouldn’t have to be this way, and, in fact, you can have love, and you can have a work-life balance. You can have it all; you just need to know where to look for them and make them work in your favor.
What is work-life balance, and why is it important?
Imagine a scale. To achieve work-life balance, the scale should be upright, perfectly balanced, with no side higher or lower than the other. But in real life, we often tip the scale all the way. People generally go for the extremes.
They either focus so much on work that they never get any free periods where they can unwind and relax and find love or spend special moments with their family and friends.
Or they focus on their families and friends, and their work-life is thrown to the side, and they suffer. So they never get promoted, or they are seen as slackers who do nothing.
The balance comes from being good at your job and enjoying it, making enough money so that you never have to worry about it, but making enough time to spend with your loved ones.
And, of course, making free periods in which to find said loved ones and try dating.
Find your love online: tips for lonely women
If you are trying to make everything flow and get it set up for when you are ready to have a family, then finding dates will be an issue.
There are many lonely women looking for men on specific dating services to date, but luckily there are also many men looking for women.
The perfect place in which these lonely people can meet, date and become couples, and start serious relationships is on online dating websites.
Online dating websites save you trips and wasted nights going on blind dates. And they are also the answer to “How do you find love when you’re stuck at home?”.
You don’t even have to leave the house to get to know someone new.
You can start a full-on relationship online. You can get to know one another very well and see if it’s something worth risking.
And since you can take advantage of many filters and algorithms on online dating websites, you can pick someone who fits right into your life plan.
We recommend that you choose someone who has a job in the same field or a similar one to yours.
Find a job that you love
This should come as no surprise, but you can’t have on one side the love of your life and on the other an awful job and hope for balance.
You must find something you are passionate about that makes you happy and fulfills you. A reason why you wake up happy in the morning and are ready to go at it hard and be better than yesterday.
Tips for connecting personal life and job
Learn about ghosting and mask fishing and all the perils of dating online in the 21st century and figure out how to protect yourself from scams and fake accounts. Start your relationship on the right foot when you are ready.
Search for a partner with a job that’s similar to yours. It’s been proven that doctors have successful relationships with doctors, lawyers with lawyers, actors with actors, and so on.
Who better understand the sacrifices you make for your job than someone who is doing the same thing?
Pick a job that’s close to home, so you don’t waste hours on the commute. Make a plan with your significant other and stick to it.
Plan date nights, plan outings, plan vacations. Take vacation days from work and make sure you never take out your career-related frustrations on your spouse. Be patient, be kind and communicate constantly.
