Alright I understand that everyone thinks they are busy, but my boyfriend and I are seriously tremendously over-scheduled. We both work day jobs within the hours of roughly 9 to 5 and then have passion pursuits we dedicate another five to seven hours to after work. We are both busy from basically 9am to 10pm every single day. We also pursue our passion projects on the weekends. When most people are preheating the oven and turning on Netflix for a chill night in around 7pm, we are starting our round two of the day, driving around and pursuing our dreams. So, to couples who consider themselves busy because they work 9 to 5, hit the gym and volunteer for two hours on Saturday, I’m sorry but your busy doesn’t hold a candle to ours. The good thing is that we both live this pace of life, so we understand it and accept it. It doesn’t cause fights between us really, but it can be hard on our social lives. Here’s what it’s like being that very busy couple.


I go solo on double dates

It’s pretty common that a couple we love invites us both to hang out, and we just can’t find a date that works for both my partner and I, so we finally say, “Screw it. I’ll just go hang out with them without you.” But, that can leave the guy in the other couple feeling like my partner just doesn’t like him. It isn’t true—sometimes the way our schedules work out just makes it so I’m the only one who can represent from our couple.
