Boyfriend Working 100+ Hour Weeks

Need some advice from all you male monkeys. I'm dating a guy pretty seriously who works in M&A big law and tomorrow he is closing a deal that he's been working on since January. Needless to say, he has been cranking out 100+ hour weeks consistently for the past few weeks. For all of you who have been through those horrendous hours, what are some nice things I could do for him after tomorrow when he closes and gets a few really short/slow days at the office. Was thinking I should give him his space and let him sleep the next few nights. Once he becomes a normal person again...Take him out for dinner? Cook him a nice meal? Thoughts...

And yes to all you guys, your first thought has been contemplated and will be taken care of.

Sex and nice meals... and lots of compliments... his psyche is likely fragile and he probably just wants to be appreciated...

I have no idea what "contimplated" means so I'll just disregard that entire sentence.

Anyways, you need to bang his brains out.

As long as we're being grammar dickheads, "anyways" is not proper grammar.

I was not being a grammar dickhead, you missed the point. I was using the misspelling to allow me to disregard her closing statement saying she had already contemplated offering sex.

Fucking amazing girlfriend.

The HBS guys have MAD SWAGGER. They frequently wear their class jackets to boston bars, strutting and acting like they own the joint. They just ooze success, confidence, swagger, basically attributes of alpha males.

Blowjobs seem to be a lost art in modern society. I <3 bjs, give him a nice one at an unexpected time.

Key to a woman's heart = laughter
Key to a man's heart = unexpected blowjob

Cook him a nice meal and give him some of what your first thought is. Great girlfriend

Thanks for the comments, guys. I've since moved onto private equity and those 100 hour weeks come maybe once a year but I do remember how rough they were, particularly at the end of a deal.

Jul 23, 2012

Do you have friends exactly like you?

Jul 23, 2012

Steak and blowjobs

Also be happy to see him and don't give him shit about the hours. Do that and you can remain happily funemployed.

We're honestly simple creatures.

I have this same exact problem.

food and fun and seriously fucking amazing girlfriend

I don't understand why you post stuff like this on the forum when you absolutely know what the responses will be like. Leads me to think you're either a troll, or clueless.

Jul 23, 2012

If you ever want to break up with him, i don't mind chatting with you about it. Heck, we could grab coffee

Jul 23, 2012

DONT talk about work unless he brings it up
DONT get into petty arguments, he probably is already on edge

you should know what to do from the above comments otherwise. cheers to you

Blow him, order a large pizza pie, a bottle of single malt scotch, don't say another word - just leave the apt and let the man unwind.

Jul 23, 2012

Give him alcohol and let him sleep.

Jul 24, 2012

Wow...I need to get a girl like you...

Let him chill and unwind then take him out for dinner

Finally a successful troll attempt. Well played, good sir.

Haha I can assure you I'm a woman, work in private equity and have a boyfriend that's closing a deal at 3PM today. I also happen to be 5'9" and a size 2.

People seriously think this is a real post? It's obviously a fake. Why the hell would she give her height and size on WSO?

Why not? I'm trying to prove a point that there are quality women who do exist out there, who can be the best of all worlds.

And honestly, this is the perfect place to ask a question like this -- a bunch of overworked guys who are in the same boat as the boyfriend right now. Sex was an obvious guess but the overwhelming food-related responses got me thinking.

I'm going to bring over a bunch of food tomorrow to cook for him while wearing a little apron, and only an apron.

Um... you forgot the 4 inch high heels and fishnet stockings. You mean only a little apron and 4 inch heels+fishnet stockings.
