Dating a very busy man
Sometimes your career will be up/down, and sometimes his will — it’s all cyclical.Rather than being competitive, try to see his successes as your successes as well.Oh, and let’s also assume that we all play on an absolutely level playing field, and the interviewer doesn’t have a preference between hiring a woman and a man. Even if this Bizarro World is true, you and your partner can still approach these amazing job opportunities (which of course will come along frequently) in the following ways: I stand by a lot of my tips in the other post, as well — a relationship is nothing without similar lifestyles, and compatible attitudes towards finance.

I think you really need to assess what level the partnership is at before you make decisions or operating assumptions that will affect your career (or your finances, for that matter).
But I also think some of us have an entirely different problem where we date someone who is equally ambitious and busy.
