General dating questions calling too much Meebo cyber sex chat rooms
You know that you don’t want this kind of schedule, you knew that before you took this job and thought that they’d assured you that you wouldn’t have it here, and it’s making you miserable. You said you feel like you have to stick it out for a year, which I assume is because you’re trying to avoid looking like a job hopper.
But you’re not going to look like a job hopper if you have one short stay.
In my first four months at this job, I have stayed late at least two nights every week, been forced to stay home both days all weekend to wait on client approval for content, been literally woken up by phone calls on holiday weekends to work, and am now (understandably, I hope) scared to make any advance plans because I’m worried I may have to drop everything and work.
Do men actually ENJOY the endless tedium and stress of going on a string of disappointing dates? (This does not mean that I look down on single people or think you should be in an unsatisfying relationship so, please, spare me the complaints.)

Job hopping is about a pattern of behavior, not leaving quickly one time.
It does mean that it’ll be important that you stay at your next job for a while, but you don’t need to be miserable in this job out of some notion that you’re obligated to stay a year.
But I was assured that working at our agency was much less demanding.
Boy, do I feel like my interviewer (who is now my boss) told me wrong.
