Anyone else out there have a creative partner curse? Ever since my CW partner moved several years ago I haven’t been able to find a partner I work well with. Dynamic duos have SUCH an advantage.

Yeah I do. I’m a cd cw and it’s really like losing your first love and having to date a bunch of assholes. Sometimes it’s better to be single

My creative partner is a curse. Does that count?

likefunny

I’ve never found “the one.” I “dated” an art director for a few years when I first started and it was fine. It kinda felt like I was settling. I always thought that there was probably someone better for me out there. Then I moved away without her. And I have yet to find anyone I can concept with quite like her. But I try to keep reminding myself that when we were together, things weren’t perfect. Le sigh.

I’ve just started at a new job, where my manager seems to be clueless. Things get approved by her, but then I get into trouble with HER manager. When this happens, my direct manager doesn’t step in, and I have to explain myself. This has forced me to constantly go above her to the next manager directly, which is frustrating and uncomfortable. Communicating with my direct manager hasn’t changed anything. For those who’ve been in a similar boat, any advice?
