In episode 34, I answer the question of: How do you have a successful relationship if you have an active and busy lifestyle?

[Intro music]

Masculinity for the Intelligent Man. I am David Tian, Ph.D., and this is: Man Up.

[Fade music]

Welcome to Man Up, I’m David Tian Ph.D. and this is episode 34 of Man Up. I’m in Korea filming on my own again. A little bit nervous about that, I always prefer to have my crew here but I got to do it because I’m traveling so much. So this is answering a question from the Facebook group, the Man Up private Facebook group. A question from Luke: First off, thanks for the great advice on your YouTube videos. So here’s the question, it is – I’m not going to read the whole thing: I’ve been talking to a girl online for a little over a month and we went out on a couple of dates in the past weeks however we both lead very busy lifestyles. I work two jobs and do volunteer work at a youth center – very good. And her work as a surgeon has her on long and odd hour shifts. Even though I like her and she’s into me and we text and talk a lot, the fact that we can’t meet up as much as we would both like to worries me as I don’t know if it will work or if I would like this in the long term. Any ideas and tips on how people with active and busy lifestyles can manage a healthy relationship not just hooking up. Thanks and keep this up.

Hey, man, great question. Thank you for that question, Luke. I know exactly what that’s like. I’m in a new country every week. I, in ten minutes, have to run to catch a shuttle bus to the airport to Canada. That’s kind of a long flight. And then I’ll be back in Singapore then to Phuket and then back to Singapore, then Bangkok, then Shanghai, then Bangkok, then Singapore and then it’s Christmas. That’s like a month and a half for me. At least you two are in the same city. Now, here’s the deal, if you are genuinely busy and it’s not like you’re lying at home on the bed and just like, “Oh, I wish you would see me or something.” If you’re genuinely busy, and it sounds like you are, you work two jobs and do volunteering. She’s a surgeon and has odd shifts and long shifts. Then you’re busy with the time – you’re doing things that you chose to do and that’s good. And that means that you’re not just idling around.
