Awhile back I was working a closing shift with my favorite bartender, and she and I were talking about dating, specifically about the difficulties of dating when you are an service industry employee. Her experiences have led her to conclude that a relationship in this context will only work out if both people work in the same field. And I think she's right.
Take for example, my schedule for this week:
Not only do I not get home until 4AM sometimes, but then there are instances in which I'll be asked to turn around and open the next day. AND, the schedule is constantly changing and/or I'm being asked to work for somebody else. Usually I'm more than willing to take anything offered, but I'm afraid I'm not going to have a life outside of work, to say nothing of a boyfriend.
Speaking of gay + bar, everyone I work with now knows I smoke cock. I told 2 people and it spread to 20+ others in a span of a week. But no one seems to care. Which is cool. I don't have to worry about "hiding" although it's not as if I was before, it just wasn't known, you know?
I'm curious to know how other may have handled dating people with opposite schedules.
