ok, thanks for posting that? Was that supposed to be a reply to another thread or just a random warning?

Ummmmm lots of professions are like that.  I’m a flight attendant.  Guess I’ll fwd this to Fiance and find him a receptionist…. 

I was expecting to be wary of all the tasty treats he’d make me.

Yeah that can be an overworked and underpaid profession. Sorry you’re struggling.

Thanks for telling me how horrible my career is for relationships! like any other career, it’s up to you to set your work/life balance. Your boyfriend’s career isnt the problem if there’s no balance.

jade222:  Is he happy being a chef ? remember eventually he will retire lol and he will be around too much! Seriously maybe he will eventually switch careers. It would be great if he wrote a best selling cookbook!!!!

I agree with PP. I think this Bee just need to vent.

jade222:  I work crazy hours too. My job is regular office hours (9-5pm, plus events on nights and weekends – and then the occassional 14 – 16 hour day to get all my work done). I am lucky that I can do 75% of my job from my laptop which I can take home, but when work is all someone does, it can negatively impact your relationship. I battle a lot to balance my work and personal life.It sounds like since your SO is the breadwinner of the family, he cannot just stop. Can he look for another chef position somewhere else that can perhaps offer a better schedule?

Taking care of a child on your own is hard and no fun. I’m sorry you’re having a difficult time.

Maybe if you get a job he won’t have to work so much?

jade222:  I know 2 professionally trained chefs who changed careers due to the long hours. Hope things get better for you.

My Fiance is an executive chef and is gone a lot but he loves what he does. It really did hurt our relationship in the beggining but I also think it brought us closer together as well. I love dating a chef- he will always have a career because everyone needs to eat! Job security 🙂
