I ask this because i was talking to one of my friends and she brought up my relationship with my girlfriend. I only see her 2 times a week and i'am ok with that. But this girl said that being in a relatioship is like a ""full time job". I looked at her a bit weird lol. Then she explained how us guys have to be with our girls almost all the time and so on. Is this true you think?
Yes it is a full time job because you have to invest your time and energy on one person. You might even have sacrifice some of your free time or maybe even nap time to be around her. Also, you have to make sure you take care of yourself and that you have something to share with your SO. It emotional stressful eps. If your lover is insecure or distance and then you have to ask her if she okay and try to make her feel better. Even when you know she just over reacting it a lot of work.
No, if u feel its a job then ur in the wrong relationship. A relationship should b ur relief, ur secret island where there is no work and no chores and no guidelines... Ur relationship should be something u enjoy, and something u choose, not something u HAVE to do to survive...
Basically for me. I have to check up everyday, talk, dedicate time on the weekends to hanging out. You have to talk through things. It's effort. That being said, I don't see my relationship as a burden or super hard job. But it's a job I'm on shirt all day for.
It's not a job at all but to put it in that aspect it is full time if you don't see them, because you're talking with them, and wanting them to be okay, worrying if they're not, occupy time in your head etc.
I wouldn't expect my boyfriend to be with me ALL the time, he's allowed to have a life of his own outside of me too. I feel like if someone refers to a relationship as a "job" makes it seem like more of a chore than anything.
No. She's currently seeing as a ''burden'' for her and chose not to get involved in it. She thinks that hanging out with someone needs a lot of time investment. Actually it's not, a simple call & making appointment and waiting for the date to come is a great way to start with.
