I am here to get some advice from someone who understands and has been/is in a similar position. My investment banker boyfriend and I have been together for 5 months now. It would be safe to say that we have an amazing relationship. I know his family and friends and we see (or used to see) each other fairly often considering both our hectic schedules - mid-week, fridays and sometimes spend weekends together. When we first started dating he told me that I need to understand that work can be crazy at times, however as of last week I have never had to grasp the full meaning of his words.
He wants to get a VP promotion and is currently working on a massive deal that was supposed to be wrapped up today, yet more work came up. I am worried he is not getting enough rest (he stays in the office until very late) and I also really miss him. Yet, I feel stupid to demand his attention considering how hectic things are at the moment and I completely understand that work is important. We message through the day and he does make an effort but the newfound dynamic of our relationship is taking its toll. Until this point, the longest we haven't seen one another is a week (due to both travelling abroad) hence this is rather unnatural.
How do I deal with it without being too demanding? Men - what do you expect your woman to be like when work is hectic?
I fear suggesting we see each other (have already tried organizing something twice last week) as it seems like more and more work comes up for him, eventually having to cancel on me and causing unnecessary drama.
Advice would be greatly appreciated!
