It may not be in your best interest to date a co-worker or your boss, but you can try to find someone who lives in the same city or state. You don't want the person to be too close to home, but you may not be comfortable with them being one thousand miles away. When you date someone close to where you live or work, it's easier to make time to see them versus driving 30 minutes to one hour to their home after a long day at work or a stressful day in general. Planning to meet is a lot more feasible and it makes getting around a lot easier. Nothing is worse than navigating an hour or so to a place where you have no idea where you are going or how to get there. Familiar surroundings is one comfort of home that can ease some of the pressures of getting to know someone and dating.
Accept Who You Are
If you are a person who works all the time, accept it and embrace it. There is nothing wrong with working until your heart is content, but it may not be suitable for many people who are looking to settle down and have a serious relationship. When you are dating and mingling, tell your date about your job and work ethic. Some people will admire it and some people will disagree. As long as you accept who you are, you'll find someone who feels the same way.
