Why Dating An Entrepreneur Is Very Different To The Norm.
Here’s the real story. If you think it’s just about work-life balance, think again. There are a few quirks inherent in the entrepreneurial personality you should understand as entrepreneurs are their own breed of boyfriend or girlfriend.
Firstly, it’s not going to be easy. Entrepreneurs are not easy to deal after work. They can be emotional rollercoasters, they can be fragile and despondent, they can be exhausted and barely willing to invest any energy outside of their business. On the flip side, they can also be neurotic or controlling. But they’re also beautiful in their own way.
