Hello Ladies, so I am seeing someone like we have met for a couple of days and now we are in different time zones. I am trying to talk and have communication but he only speak when he is free. Also, he always keeps on saying that he has a lot of work (MBB) which I get it, but should you proactively try and take out time to have communication especially when you are in different time zones.

If he wants to talk he’ll find time for you.

Do not pursuit a man. Period. Do not make yourself so available.

If you already took initiative and he isn’t reciprocating, it’s time to move on! Like the other post said, if he wanted to, he would.

It’s a little unrealistic to expect him to talk to you when he is busy working… how different of time zones are we talking about?

Yeah I’m sorry it sucks. But I don’t think it’s worth it. You’ll just feel more and more frustrated because he won’t have any time for you the next 4 months. And he is going to feel exhausted every day from having to work so much.

Be sounds busy and no time to really dedicate to a relationship. I would put this relationship on ice till you two are back in the same city. You say it is only 4 months. I would stop obsessing over him and either find a hobby to occupy your time or start dating other people.

Yeah, recently I have been distancing myself from him, like not replying to text instantly and I see he has been initiating conversations and calling me. Do men need to feel distance before they come back again?

If he’s not investing in the beginning of the relationship, chances are he won’t ever. Me and my now bf are in different time zones. We’ve always lived in different continents. But the beginning of the relationship he went all out. We both wanted to talk to each other all the time (albeit work schedule didn’t allow it). Slowly his enthu died down. For months when we couldn’t travel due to covid, i was the one carrying on the relationship. He’s almost given up. But once we started meeting again, i couldn’t ask for a better, healthier relarionship. Turns out most men have a love language that is more physical (im not talking just sex, it’s just being able to touch your sig other) while women are more emotional.

That’s good to know that men like this exist!

What is the real deal across MBB, Tier 2, Big4?

Junior partner at a specialist boutique consulting firm (compete w/ MBB primarily in our verticals) with prior experience in PE on both deals and ops side, and corp dev. My career here is pretty stable and money is good enough without killing myself (500k+ cash) but I miss being an investor vs an advisor. Is there any path back to GE/PE at this stage? My gut says no unless it's a firm where I have a client relationship and I get lucky but hard to broach the subject given dynamics. Any advice?
