I know you recently did a post on dating someone making less money/having more time, and I really enjoyed it.But I also think some of us have an entirely different problem where we date someone who is equally ambitious and busy.I liked your post today “Fitting a Social Calendar into a Busy Life” and I have an idea for a related post. I know you’ve been off the market for a while, but I imagine you’ve had some experience in the arena!Specifically, making time to date when you’re a busy, professional woman and/or how to meet men when you’re a busy, professional woman.) and would report in to each other on what we were doing to find a guy.– Don’t worry too much about putting your picture on online dating sites.In fact, my super-dorky story is that after a party in 2005, my friend C and I (both single and overachieving) decided our Project of 2006 was going to be to Get Married.We set up time for weekly status updates (yes, seriously!
Which of course made me feel great that he was going out to of his way to help me, AND plan in advance; at the same time i I'm disappointed that he can't set in stone time to see me before then. If he can meet her twice a week what else is there?
I’m a 33 year old, single father with primary care of a 14 month old daughter. Make no mistake about it: being busy is the greatest and most believable excuse for being single that you can find.
Her mother has a weekends-only job and never has her overnights or even in the evening. Which is why you’re not going to hear me suggest to Mike that he ditch his job, ditch his daughter and spend 24 hours a day finding love. And, as an adult, you have responsibilities that don’t simply abate because you wish them away. You still have to make sure your children get fed each night.
This is not to say that you should be any less devoted a father.
But you owe it to yourself, your daughter, and your sanity to lead a life that does not eat up all of your free time. Despite the fact that love is more important than anything, we maintain the mindset that work comes first.
