Disagree with EM1. A similarly hectic schedule makes it more likely that your bf/gf is busy at the times you’re free. The ideal is a gf / bf with a chiller schedule who is understanding of your lifestyle

Not sure about that. What you said started with that gender equality is self delusion, highlighted the caring role of women over the breadwinning role of men and included redpill terminology. I'm sure it's hyperbole to you but it reads reductively, and again, as noted, I've simply not seen that sort of "mating" strategy in my experience.

Sorry to hear about those experiences though. That's truly awful and demonstrates how poorly labour laws work in the UK. It's all a matter of political will sadly.

You can only seriously date people who work the same amount as you or more. My last three relationships were with a consultant, an investment banker, and an entrepreneur.

How did you meet your previous partners EM1? And how do you currently try to search for people? (E.g in real life or dating apps)

Female here.
Have already found the one and I am married to him.

We’ve had in-depth conversations about what working as a consultant at an MBB means and how it could impact our relationship and the sacrifices we both would have to make.
It isn’t as easy as having a job that ends at the strike of 5 but having conversations from the get-go is perhaps one of the ways.

Partner isn’t a consultant, if that’s what you’re asking.
He usually tends to have more flexible & easy work life. Finishes early on Fridays and on weekdays, it is mostly until 5; or a little earlier, if he skips lunch 😍.
Yes, had long-working hours before we started dating.

It isn’t easy, don’t get me wrong.
It’s just that communication makes it easier.

I’m in the US, but it took leaving consulting to have the time and mental bandwidth to date. Met my life partner a few months after I moved to industry.

Hinge! I realized my personal life didn’t look like what I wanted it to, and I didn’t see a path to that changing whole at Bain.

Basically spent those early post-consulting days going out on a lot of bad 1st dates from apps. Fortunately after ~15-20 of those, found my match :)

Me and my ex both worked quite long hours. So whenever I would tell my friends we only met up once or twice a week, they were bamboozled. Then they started going on about how you should always want to see your partner.

Well I’m sorry if both our jobs are demanding and that is the only time we both can make on top of trying to keep our sanity at bay?!?
