Becoming a successful entrepreneur is a huge accomplishment, especially for a woman. We have so many obstacles to overcome, so when we’ve finally reached our goals, that’s a reason to celebrate!
Unfortunately, when we are finally ready to find a life partner who can celebrate with us and share in our success, we are often met with brand new obstacles. There are many common misconceptions that surround female entrepreneurs. We are seen simultaneously as too family-oriented to get a job done while being too work-focused to build a family; men think we are bossy, controlling, and intimidating. Relationships are important for everyone, even us. So, how can we find love?
This is rule #1. Don’t sacrifice who you are to make someone like you! Be willing to negotiate, but don’t sacrifice any of your core principles. If a man doesn’t like who you are, he’s not worth your time. Put down your cool and collected business persona, and open up so people can get to know all of you!
Make Time for Dating
You’re already an expert at making a calendar that fits in every important meeting you must attend, so put your dating life into the schedule too! When you make a date, treat it like any other important meeting that can’t be moved around. Show your date that he’s your priority that day!
You’re never going to meet Mr. Right by sitting around and waiting for him to show up. Life isn’t a romantic comedy, and you’re not Jennifer Aniston! Try online dating or dating apps, ask your friends to set you up, or just get out and meet people.
If you keep saying “I’ll never meet the one”, then you’ll probably prove yourself right. Keep a positive attitude even when things go wrong, and eventually, things will start working out. You’re obviously a good planner, so set goals when you start dating someone and make those goals a priority. Every week, ask yourself what you can do to show your guy that he’s important! Once you put in the work, you’ll find a guy who will do the same.
Just because you are a busy, independent woman, doesn’t mean you’ll never find love! Many successful ladies have made it work in their lives. So put down that phone, step away from the computer, pay attention to your next date, and communicate with him. One of them will end up being the right one!
