When his department chair told him to stop running up the phone bill, and his girlfriend told him to move out, he got sick.
He had a disease exacerbated by stress he’d never mentioned during two weeks of real-life sweet nothings and two months of love letters and phone conversation.
It can get depressing, not only about their relationships but to see the pool of men in their 30s who are available.
My advice is if you find somebody who you love and who loves you, make it work, whatever it takes!
Life for career women can be divided into two parts: your professional life and your (mythical) personal life.
For a large majority of your 20s, your professional life demands center stage.
In other words, the man who ties up with her is being used as a tool with a dual purpose: give her children, and help her fill in the “married” check box.
However, at this point, you aren’t only overqualified for most jobs on the market, but you’re also overqualified for the dating market.
Most men are either scared of you or can’t seem to handle the demands of your career.
If someone were to ask you what you’ve done over the past decade, what would you say? If that’s the case, you chose to pursue some crazy demanding career, the kind of career that demands to be in the center of attention in your life, much like an attention-deprived toddler.
Most of you probably went off to college, got bachelor’s degrees, landed good jobs and maybe even maneuvered up the corporate ladder. Maybe you found “the one.” Maybe you got married, had a baby or two or even watched them grow up a little. Then, you have done nothing but nurture that for the past decade.
