With my birthday but a day away, I realize and lament that I have been too busy for dating websites, too caught up redesigning Uhelpfund.com (for a sneak peek go to Uhelpfund.org), to have even the possibility of a date. The majority of my male interaction is a daily Skype share screen web development session from 3 a.m.. to noon, marking up changes with my stylus pen.
If you are shaking your head as you read this, you probably understand all too well.
So, with no date for my birthday and nothing at all on the horizon, I started to wonder…
Am I all alone or are other women CEOs experiencing the same? I am the founder & CEO of GrantWatch.com and other grants and crowdfunding website companies. I work nonstop, to the point of being dangerously close to a mandatory work-a-holic workshop.
Recently, my daughter Lani linked me up with a business consultant (to figure out how to work less) who basically told me I am doing the impossible – but really it's not just me, I have a great staff.
Now my staff, they have lives – outside of the office. Maybe I live vicariously. It appears that I need the perfect match to virtually drop in my lap!
I find dating sites to be like those initial interviews searching for my next sales, writer or social media specialist.
The man I would enjoy spending what little time of my day I have with, probably wouldn't have the time to play on them, either.
I am "BIGLY" wondering if a late 50s to early 60s, widowed or divorced, available and eligible, educated, smart, healthy, somewhat observant Jewish man, psychologically and financially sound – who lives or is able to relocate to south Florida, would reach out to connect with me… and then drop directly into my inbox?
Could it really work that way? Maybe LinkedIn is the dating website for overworked CEOs.
You tell me.
Check out my FB photos and if you're so inclined, send a quick Facebook poke!
My daughter asked me what I wanted for my birthday. I told her I want to go to the beach. It's about five minutes away and getting there for just one hour in my work day would be heaven.
BUT- What I truly want and what I do not have the time or energy to find is that special person who respects my work and has their own, and at the time of day when I finally call it a day – that there be someone of value to eat dinner with, see a movie or just decompress from all the daily decisions.
