You’ve wanted to get back into the dating game for some time now. You know that you’re not getting any younger, and that while it’s a fallacy that you’re ever to find love, you’re still very much in love with the idea of being in love with someone while you’re both young. After all, you’re a high-powered professional, and if there’s one thing professional singles crave more than success it’s having that Grade-A match for their Type-A personality with whom to share all those successes. Well, never fear—your high-powered other half is out there somewhere, and here are a few tips to help find them.
Don’t Try So Hard
This may sound like blasphemy to the most driven of professional singles out there, but when it comes to dating, there can be such a thing as trying too hard. Let’s be honest—if you really are a high-powered single, there’s every chance you’re a person who’s well-off, committed, hard-working, and passionate about what you do. Those are all very attractive traits on their own, and they’re likely all evident. You therefore probably don’t need to try so hard to make sure your prospective partners know how much you make, or how many hours you put in. They can guess, and your bringing it up can make you go from seeming dedicated and intriguing, to an obsessive narcissist.
The other problem particular to high-flying professional singles is fitting in time for dates. Here you want to strike something of a balance. On the one hand, you can’t expect people to warm up to you if you’re constantly cancelling on them, or giving the impression that work is more important. On the other hand, if you’re dating a fellow work-centric person, chances are they know how important your work is to you because they feel the same way about their work. If that’s the case, while you may struggle at first to find the time to meet, understanding your mutual passion for work can make it clear you both have the type of work ethic and personalities you admire, which in turn might help convince the two of you to bump a meeting here and there to open up time for a lunch date.
All this and more can help elite singles find the elite partners they’re looking for.
