Many singles today seem to find they are too busy to date. We run from work to class to lectures, to the gym, etc… There never seems to be a minute of down time.
Of course, we are doing this to ourselves! We may have listened to well-intentioned dating advice that urged us to ‘take up a hobby’ or ‘join a class’ in order to meet someone. The theory was that if we were out doing things, we would just happen to run into someone!
For many of us, however, it’s actually worked against us. In fact, after adding classes, gym workouts and other activities to our schedules, we find we do not even have time to go out on a date! Of course, we’ve become so rushed in our own lives – jetting from work, to do yoga, to do run errands and more- that we aren’t prepared to let someone else in.
This is true for both men and women equally. No one wants to date someone who always appears to be in a rush and never has any time for them. You may have even run into others interested in dating, but were too busy to notice them!
Can We Make Time To Find Love?
This all begs the question; can we find love with our very limited free time? The short answer is yes, but it will involve some self-reflection.
For starters, we need to re-examine our priorities and our time. Obviously, most (if not all) of us can just quit our jobs and use this time to find the love of our lives. But maybe we can cut back on those origami classes. Or possibly learn to better multi-task. Maybe we can learn a foreign language from a cd while working out instead of traveling 45 minutes each way 4 times a week.
Once we have re-examined how we are spending time and juggled some things around, most of us will find that there is free time to be spent looking for love, dating sites, and romance.
Of course, if you are one of those who work 14 hours a day, you may want to think about cutting back on that, or even changing careers. For genuine workaholics, changing their cycle of work-eat-(gym)-sleep and back to work can be extremely difficult.
