Full-time social life struggle
All of my friends who are in couples have one couple who works until 4 p.m. at the latest and the other is a student, so they have part time hours where they just take a 3-4 hour class a few days a week.
They can’t understand why my girlfriend and I, who both have full-time jobs that require us to work a minimum of 40 (but more like 50) hours each week, can’t come to events or be on time to things or not be constantly stressed out from running around from work to dinner to an event.
It’s exhausting to try to do everything. We’re both trying to train for a half marathon and do training runs before dinner, then eat, then go out and be expected to have the same amount of energy and stamina as everyone else. It’s not possible and I wish they could spend a day in my shoes/her shoes to understand that.
