Could use some advice from the bees on this one…
My FI is well established in his field and works pretty regular hours, usually M-F 11a-7p and some rare random times if need be. I just landed a really good ‘starter’ job at my dream company, I really want to stay there for a very long time and move up, but right now I am the low one on the totom pole so for the next few months I’m drawing all the weird hours that no one else wants, lots of late nights (midnight or 1am is not uncommon) and weekends.
I know it’s only for a few months and my FI is being very supportive, but I feel that any chance for intimacy (ie. sex) is impossible right now because one or the other of us is either going to work, at work, or collapsed on the couch after work all the time. I can’t take time off right now because I’m trying to establish myself (plus I’m taking time off for the wedding and honeymoon).
Any bees have any ideas on how to ‘schedule in’ intimacy for these few months or is it just a lost cause?

We have a 5 month old baby who sleeps in bed with us and doesn’t take very good naps during the day. We basically have to squeeze sex in whenever we get the tiniest window of opportunity! We have resorted to shower and bathroom sex quite often. I think you just have to make it a priority. If we can do it, so can you! 🙂

If you work until midnight, do you go in late in the morning? If your FI only works 11-7, there’s a whole lot of morning time free! Also, do you work weekends? You just make it work; what’s your other option? You’re not going to sacrifice your career for a few months of sex…

My FI works 6am-7pm usually 7 days a week and I’m only home on weekends, we still find time to have sex 3-4 times a week. Of course you’ll be tired but usually you can find the energy lol

My FI and I both have funky schedules with 12-16 hrs, and sometimes every other weekend is our best time and only consistent time off together – you just have to make time. And I’ve learned that sometimes if you’re not completely in the mood, still trying to initiate sex – even when tired – you’ll get right into the mood, you’ll feel better, plus may even sleep better then. Sometimes you just juggle and make it work when you can.
