If men are from Mars and women are from Venus, entrepreneurs would probably belong to the black hole! They are characterised by passion, determination and vision. Unfortunately, this translates to little or no time for themselves.
When you think of love, the world has been unfair to them. Entrepreneurs are often lonely, albeit successful and rich. Why, you ask? Because not everyone is designed to be a partner of an entrepreneur for it requires strength, persistence, sacrifice and finding joy in the little things in life.
We are not saying it’ll be easy. We are saying it’ll be fun!
Here are 29 reasons why you should/should not date an entrepreneur:
