All Work And No Play Makes Brandon Routh A Dull Boy *wink*

Ever been in love with a man/woman who loves his job more than you? One of my girlfriends unfortunately is. Or so she says.

She called me up and told me that she was sick and tired of waiting up for her bf every night for the past 2 months. They were supposed to have dinner together at 7 p.m. last night and she had cooked his favourite dishes but he only got in around 2 a.m. She said the dinner had slowly turned from just deliciously underdone to well burnt and beyond repair. She said he had crept in around 2 a.m. and when she asked him what happened he simply said,
“Sorry love, client wanted to go for dinner, then a club and then to another club. I just lost all track of time”.
She then said he tried to cuddle her when they got into bed but she was so angry that she was a rigid rock beside him.

“You know what he said to me? He said I should know how important the deal is for him and that he is doing it for us. For us! I don’t see it benefiting me in any way. It’s not like he showers me with diamonds or take me for a holiday overseas. I hardly see him. I speak to his secretary more than I speak to him. I would like to see whether he would enjoy all that money if I leave him and run off with someone else!! It’s so frustrating, Sher. What should I do?”

“I am not an expert but I guess you can always ask him to get you a supplementary credit card and maxed it and when he gets the bill, he will prolly get a heart attack and that way he’s gonna be bedridden for a while and you can have him all to yourself while he’s recuperating at home or in the hospital”.

“Sher, I am serious!”

“Look, you said what he is doing does not benefit you in any way. Did he say the reason he’s working so hard is to get enough money to marry you? Did he ever mention the “M” word?”

“Well, yeah that’s what he said but I’d rather have him right now all to myself. We don’t talk as often as we used to. He’d rather sleep in during weekend. We don’t hang out with our friends. Sher, am I being selfish?”

“Haiyooo…I don’t know lah. I’ve never been in this kinda situation. I mean it’s better he spends his time doing work than “doing” other women, u know what I mean?”

Seriously, I know how important it is to spend time with your significant other. What’s the point of having a boyfriend if you don’t get to spend time with him and get to know each other better? But then I also understand men’s need to establish themselves and their career.

So women, where do you draw the line?

And men, if your gf/wife makes such a fuss, what do you do? Try to spend time with her or dump her for not being understanding?
