Things You Should Know Before Dating a Workaholic


Spending too much time at work can be stressing for others. However, there are also people who never see it that way. Working late at night or even staying at the office is what keeps them going. Despite of intolerable working conditions, accomplishing a challenging role or task out of hard work, in fact, is likely a driven goal for workaholic for  each passing day. They simply defy limits because they can. These are one of the few  things you need to know about workaholic.

  1. There is no such thing as too much working.  


It must be 5 pm and everyone is rushing to go home, or  having plans later that night. But you need to know that a workaholic won’t even bother if it’s 5 or past the hour that meant another overtime at work. For all they know, it is much stressful to left early without all their work done. They simply needed to finish everything first.

  1. They consider their work as their happiness.


People might suggest to go after what makes them happy and stop being so perplexed at work. But for workaholics, work isn’t their last option, rather, it is a choice they keep on investing.  Working hard is their source of happiness—knowing  that they conquer another project despite of all the difficulty.  It is a happiness, only they can get out of striving harder each time.

  1. They don’t feel like missing out on other things.


Workaholic always find a way to manage everything. They are keen at prioritizing things and doing what is much needed at that time. They get anything else done in between work or during weekends. Devoting their time mostly at work doesn’t necessarily mean forgetting the date with their loved one. They just know how to manage their time so well.

  1. They like to keep their mind occupied and challenged.


Hardworking people like to engage their mind with a challenge. Every situation for them is like a mind game they can’t afford to lose. They keep on working so hard, and, only stop until they get what they’ve been eyeing for. Imagine dating someone who just never happen to accept ‘no’ as an answer, particularly when they really like you.

  1. They want things to get done.


They won’t ask for an off only to have twice as much work when they come back. If they did, they’ll probably spend the whole day thinking about the work they’re not doing. Just as simple as that.

Dating a workaholic seems like complicated than it really is. You must understand his or her situation and what are you willing to accept. And, just like what they always do, they’ll find ways to manage everything. Always.
