Being single isn’t fun when you don’t want to be. But, for many entrepreneurs, it is a fact of life.
Entrepreneurs aren’t your typical person. We eat, breathe and sleep our businesses 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year in a way that even the most dedicated employee doesn’t. Entrepreneurs are responsible for their organizations ability to pay bills, pay employees, pay themselves and still generate a profit. They are responsible for the health and well-being of the enterprise and for the company’s ability to remain relevant and grow. There is almost no separation between them and their businesses and they are always working, even if that work is simply thinking about their business.
So much of our business is our life that we tend to approach relationships as business transactions, too. And that’s why so many dating and relationship experiences fail for us. Really.

Don’t believe me? I asked an expert. Christina Weber is creator and host of New York City-based Underground Unattached, a unique dating experience that brings together 40 (20 men and 20 women) prescreened, like-soul and like-minded singles for an evening of play, with the intention of creating meaningful connections. She specializes in driven, ambitious professionals. What has she found? Well, she says, when entrepreneurs find themselves in a relationship that isn’t working, they make a similar mistake that corporations make: “They hire quickly and fire slowly,” she said.
Since entrepreneurs dedicate most of their energy to their work, they find it easier to have someone than no one. Therefore, it’s easier to keep Mr. or Mrs. Wrong around than it is to cut their losses and move on to finding Mr. or Mrs. Right. Christina says that entrepreneurs are perfectionists and, therefore, rather than looking for love, they are “seeking great love. They don’t want to ‘settle.'” For that reason and a lack of time dedication, that is why many entrepreneurs remain single.
