We all keep reading and talking about how it's bad to be "too available" in a relationship, but how do you deal with it if you're not available enough? The reason I ask is that right now I'm working a regular 40-hour per week job (which honestly ends up at ~50 hours a week after all the overtime I put in) and my work hours are from 12PM-8PM, I rarely ever leave work until ~10PM. I have Sundays and Mondays off work. Whenever I'm not at work, I seem to always end up being busy with other things that come up since I also run a side business and take on other work as much as I feel like doing it. With that said, I've kind of been hesitant to even bother looking for anyone to date or have a relationship with because once we got past that "one date a week" stage, I would have a hard time devoting much more to it. How do/would you guys deal with a situation like this? I know I can cut back on any extra work I do, and probably can get away with putting in less overtime gradually, but I still have odd work hours that make it hard to do much socially (usually after work I'm burned out and need at least a few hours to "perk up" again so I can go do stuff). I think my main issue is thinking not many girls/women are going to have a similar work schedule, and that my days off are about the worst possible for doing some kinds of fun activities. I'm sure I'm not alone in this, but it seems like it makes having a social life very difficult.
