You also need to admire and respect the hard work that your partner's doing, otherwise you'll always be resentful. For me, his ambition and work ethic are part of the attraction. It takes effort on both sides. He dedicates every bit of free time from work to me instead of himself and I accept that his work is not his fault and to not take it out on him. No matter how awful it may be for me, it's ten times worse for him.

That is why it caught me so off guard when he started to work that much. I am usually pretty good at spotting players but perhaps there is a new breed of them out there who are just really good at pretending; i mean it is New York after all. He sent me the last text apologizing for being so crazy busy and i just left it at that. I think it would have been easier if we had something solid prior to him going into this new job but starting something new seems impossible. I also work with a large number of men in this industry who are faithful husbands and fathers, but even they will admit to being whorehounds in their younger days.
Wolf of Wall Street is an ugly but not innacurate lifestyle for many of these guys. Especially the young, good looking ones. I say that the fact you two obviously want different things in life and relationship-wise right now, is a good enough reason to let him go.

Thanks everyone for your comments. Also he is not super young, he is He had a different profession before, went to business school and started investment banking this past summer. Not that that is any indication that his whorehound days are over but i now find it strange that i met him on a dating app. It makes me wonder, if he is really that busy, why join a dating app if you really that busy?
Glad to see Phillygirl chimed in on this one since she knows what may of these guys are like!! Because on the one hand he just started a new job in what is a very busy industry. Even easier to copy it to multiple women!! Like I said, hate to stereotype, but if the shoes fits…It has a lot to do with still being a male dominated profession, dealing with insane amounts of money, and feeling like they are on top of the world.

That, combined with a crazy work schedule is not a great mix. I hate to say it but have to. If you never discussed if you were exclusive, I will bet money he is sleeping with others. They often have a long list of women they line up, for when they are bored, horny or want attention.
The one exception I made was typical of what I say to avoid. VERY, very charming at first. Till you really got to know him. Male colleagues in 20s are mostly single and kind of are baby versions of wolf of wall street though taken ones tend to be faithful , while those in 30s mostly settled down. We have only been together for a few months. Even if he is interested, are you happy to see someone once every 2 weeks?
