Dear Love Lawyer,
I’m so glad I came across your website because I’m in serious need of advice. You’re spot on when it comes to lawyers having zero time for a love life. I’m in my mid-forties, divorced, and I focus my entire life around my career. I want to find someone to spend my life with, but how am I supposed to find the time for that?
I’m a personal injury lawyer, and my day-to-day life is morbid. My mind is constantly spinning with car accidents, brain injuries, and spinal damage. Any time I attempt to go on a date, I end up being that cliché woman who only talks about work. Will I ever find a man who’s able to balance out my busy and complicated lifestyle? Where do I even start?
Injury Lawyer Seeking Intimacy
Dear Injury Lawyer Seeking Intimacy,
I know you may think you’re alone in your situation and no one else is feeling the way you’re feeling, but trust me when I say that there are many others just like you. My best advice is to keep dating, but be more intentional about the men you date. You say you end up talking about your job on your dates, but perhaps that isn’t a bad thing.
Your job involves personal injuries, so maybe the topics you’re discussing would intrigue a doctor? Maybe another lawyer would be a great match for you? Or, you may find great chemistry with someone who lets you take the reins completely.
It’s important to realize that, as a lawyer, your job differs from many women in society and that’s okay. It doesn’t make you undesirable, but it makes you desirable to a particular type of man. Find those men and you’ll be on the track to finding your soulmate.
Just because you’re in your forties and divorced, doesn’t mean you don’t deserve a second chance at love. Just last week, I was talking to a friend of mine who’s a Salt Lake City car accident lawyer about how so many people in their late forties and fifties are getting remarried these days!
The man who you’re meant to be with will see your passion for your work as a good quality, not a bad one; however, it’ll be up to you to make yourself available if you want to find this man. So, get out there and keep seeking, Injury Lawyer! I’ll be here rooting for you and so will all the other busy, single, and love-lost lawyers out there.
With all my best,
