It Is Always A 3-way Relationship
Remember that this is always a 3-way relationship with him, you and his phone! You can always see them checking their phones for mails, drafts and updates. If they are not busy with their phones, it would be their favourite laptop that they would be glued to. In such cases, try and talk to them and ask them to spend time with you, minus all these things, as your relationship is also important.

Plans Are Always Rescheduled
They would always end-up canceling the plans at the last moment and expect you to understand about the last minute client demands. To make sure that they do not miss out on cancelling the plans, you must come up with some unique punishments like going on a shopping spree with them or that they got to buy you an expensive gift.

You Take The Initiative Every Time
This is the most annoying one! You plan for a special dinner all the time and they come along with their office junk on a romantic date. What can be more annoying than that constant ringing of the phone between your talks. Arrgggg! So, make sure they take some initiative in planning a date as well.

Love Texts Take A Backseat
Expecting a text from your partner asking if you had your meal can be so pleasing, right? But, this is not the scene with workaholic partners. They are so occupied with their work that they even forget to answer your call back. This does not mean that you should start doubting about yourself. Instead, understand the passion that they have for their work.

The "Do Not Touch" Tag
If you're living in with your workaholic partner, please make sure not to reorganise their stuff, we mean, NEVER! Also, when on a date, keep your hands off his work property like mobile, laptop, tablet, etc, as these stuff always come with a "do not touch" tag.
