Dating for an overachiever

I've very driven and have an intense, type A personality. Success is very important to me. I've always been one of the top students in every grade throughout school. I went to a great college and finished a Master's degree last summer. I've had writing published, and currently work for one of the top employers in my field. I'm also on the board for several charities in the city.

I want to find love at this point in my life. However, I'm always running into the same dilemma. I'm attracted to overachievers, but it doesn't work well because I'm one too. The last guy I dated was in med school. We both worked crazy hours, rarely saw each other and it ended.

I know I could easily drop a few commitments and fit in a boyfriend, but everything I do means something to me. I'm too ambitious to settle for less, and being an overachiever is who I am (hard to change).

I also just don't get attracted to slackers. I want someone who will challenge me.

What should I do?

    Hard to change? You just don't want to. But that's OK.

  • you sound boring

    • Haha... I don't think I am, and no one has ever said this to me. I don't think this is an issue.
