How to Date an Over-Achieving, Busy Guy
The hottie from Stonewall has only an 80 percent response rate? I was just reading about this trend. She was a stellar conversationalist and great at providing words of affirmation.
There have certainly been times I’ve been too busy to date someone even when I was really into her. I have a very busy life. Some busy men still have time to date.
Take it from someone who works all the time. I understand how frustrating it can be for you to want to spend quality time with your boyfriend. You just need some advice on how to date a busy man. Look at things for what they are and not more than that. The more meaning you give to something insignificant the more worry and stress you put yourself under. The one thing men want is support.
We may not show our emotions as often as women but we do still FEEL. Get out of the house, get off of Facebook and other social media platforms and find something fun to do. Go on Craigslist and search the community section for fun activities. Invest in yourself and find self love. Depending on the love of someone else to feel complete is bad because eventually they will let you down.
Having a sense of self is the best thing you can do for yourself. We cannot change the world until we change ourselves.
Is he really…”too busy” to spend more time with you?
This is article 24 to be published on the Get The Guy blog from my brother Stephen. Steve helped co-write the Get The Guy book and is a wealth of knowledge on dating and relationships. Entitlement culture today is greater than ever, and success in one area our careers can often lead us to think we deserve something in another our relationships.
When I was in college, I was involved with one guy for a year, but it was really casual. He always said he was too busy to do a full-time.
By Petra Boynton. I started dating a man a few weeks ago. We meet up once or twice a week and talk on the phone every day. My parents think I should pick someone who can be more committed to me and my friends say similar. Do you think he should see more of me by now if he really likes me? Short answer: no. I appreciate this is bothering you. Before he met you he had his own hobbies, interests, friends, work and studies.
Those things are always going to be important to him. Instead of focusing on him, his actions and behaviour and reading things into them that may not exist, I would shift the focus back to you. You can enjoy spending time together. Outside of that you also have friends, hobbies, interests, and perhaps work or study to keep you busy. Use this as an opportunity to fill your life with things you like, including him.
How to Make Time to Date When You Think You’re too Busy
What is his excuse this time? He has to work late, practice, drink with co-workers, attend some random doctor’s appointment, take care of a new pet monkey his friend dropped off, accompany his grandma who comes in town, etc. Talk later. When you meet a guy and things are going well, it seems promising so you get all excited, then… POOF!
I’m in my mids, single and a successful businessman. I’ve not yet found someone that I think I can share my life with. I’m too busy and rarely.
Dating a busy man can be hard on both parties. Although he has proven to you the sincerity of his feelings and shows that he wants to make you a priority, his career or interests keep him occupied and fulfills his need for success and prosperity. To make your relationship with a busy man work you have to be flexible, independent and keep your love on his mind without distracting him from his important jobs.
Listen to his needs. His career may take a lot of time, or perhaps it is his family or sports that require his attention. Find out what these activities mean to him and be supportive. Be flexible. Keep it short and sweet. By doing this you stay on his mind and make him smile without creating drama. Be full of surprises.
Romance is difficult for some in any circumstances, so go the extra mile for your busy man. Leave little love notes in his pants pockets, bring him his favorite carry-out during a late work evening or call him with a sexy invitation for a back rub after he helps his friends move.
‘I’m dating a guy who’s too busy to see me. Should I end it?’
I need advice. I’ve gotten involved with a guy who is sending really mixed signals and I’m not sure what to do about it. When I was in college, I was involved with one guy for a year, but it was really casual. He always said he was too busy to do a full-time relationship, and I understood.

Some forums can only be seen by registered members. Hi, new here. As a teen I went out with this guy over a decade ago, just once. Great time, no hard feelings, nothing came of it. Just over a month ago we found each other online and began talking, and made plans to catch up over dinner. Six hours into dinner, there were definitely sparks, and we hadn’t stopped talking.
We’ve been dating for just over a month now.
Coronavirus had us fooled into believing many of us were longing for true love during lockdown. The stats didn’t lie – dating app users were chatting for longer, and “slow dating” was finally taking over hook-up culture in a tortoise-and-the-hare phenomenon. But while securing a partner seems to be more of a priority mid-pandemic, it seems the same old dating excuses are yet to be quarantined.
Have you ever told someone you’re “too busy” to go on a date?
Oh man, where were you two ladies (or friends like you) for the three years I was dating my ex who was always too busy (school, work, family – it.
Veronica is an online writer from New York who enjoys sharing relationship advice. Let’s say you and your ex split because of their busy schedule and your inability to deal with it. Six months later, you still love each other. Should you try dating again? We’ll assume that their “busy schedule” does not mean their spouse—perhaps it’s work, hobbies, kids, charity work, religious commitments, season tickets, or friends.
Here’s what you have to consider. When it comes to relationships, there are two types of people: those who get into a serious relationship when the time is right, and those who get into a serious relationship when the person is right. If it is the right time for them, they’ll make it work. They’ll fight to fit you into their busy schedule. They’ll rearranged their priorities.
If someone wants the relationship to work, the “too busy” excuse will be non-existent. Otherwise, it’s clear that this is not the right time for this person to get into a relationship. Maybe your inability to deal with their busy schedule was a factor.
When to Stop Trying to Date Someone Who Is Sending You Mixed Signals
Once X goal was achieved, I created Y goal just to procrastinate meeting someone. Happily, there are steps every guy can take to manage time better. The truth is being habitually busy may be self-imposed as a way to avoid dating… rather than being externally imposed, preventing you from dating. With a little practice, you can develop these same successful habits.
In addition to a successful career as a project manager, Ken led a weekly running group at LuLu Lemon.
3. He Likes. Nov 19, · 1. Busy might be responsible If the man that you are dating with is very busy, he is most likely to.
It’s happened to us all. You’re chatting it up with some foxy new prospect, texting him constantly and seeing him on and off for a few dates. Then, all of a sudden, the fox is on the run. He’s got practice, working late, drinks with the buddies, gym workouts, a doctor’s appointment every day for a mysterious ailment, a new pet kangaroo to entertain, a free trip to outer space and delivering cookies to the old folks home.
Now, don’t get me wrong; I know we’ve all got things to do. And some days are legitimately too busy to fit any additional plans into. We’re all busy. But, can we be honest with each other here for a minute? There’s a really high chance that the “too busy” guy or girl isn’t any busier than the rest of us. We all get 24 hours a day, so mathematically speaking, we’re all working with the same allotment of time per day.
And we’re all used to using that 24 hours in a day in specific ways, which we would probably consider as “busy. For example, I wake up, shower, go to work, go to the gym for an hour, make dinner, then either attend social commitments, reconnect with my couch or run errands. Then, it’s bedtime.
Too busy to date, yet relative’s pressure to marry is too much
We all want a love story that is fairly simple and consistent: we meet a great person who is kind and everything that we’re looking for, we like each other, we go on dates and define the relationship, and then we settle into a serious relationship. We don’t stare at our phone a million times a day wondering if he’s going to text us, and we don’t have to question whether date nights are even going to happen. We don’t have to wonder about anything because he’s so straight-forward with us about how he feels.
Unfortunately, that’s not always the way that things go. We’ve all experienced dating a guy who acts one way sometimes and another the rest of the time.
Is he really ”too busy” to spend more time with you? When you are first dating a guy, and you really like him, you are of course going to want to see him at least.
The new site update is up! Recently, I met a guy who’s pretty extraordinary, enough to make me realise how much talking-myself-into-it I’ve done about other crushes and flings in the past few years. He’s smart, curious about the world, quick-witted and funny enough to make me cry laughing, totally attractive, kind, politically right-on, polite to waiters, a fellow smoker Even the first time we had sex was pretty good, with all the qualities I like in a partner and lots of laughing and both of us getting off repeatedly.
The only thing is, he’s insanely busy, work and then school and then other school and then some. I actually find this pretty attractive, as my usual routine is being The Busiest Person You Know hence, single! My experience of relationships with less busy people has been a lot of conflict and hurt about time, and my ideal is someone who’s in a similar situation to me and can work with being on both sides of the busy situation. I’m not looking for him to change. We’ve had one date, but it was a day and a half long and ended in us borrowing stuff off each other, and in the week since we’ve been in daily contact by email.
So, being the less busy person right now, I’m not used to this: – It’s way, way too early to do anything like asking for time commitments. Current an anxious wreck. Any advice on strategies, or how you would like this to go if you are, or have been, insanely busy at the early stages of dating? Whenever I socialize with people who are busier than I am, I let them be the ones to decide when to fit me into their schedules, since my schedule adjusts more easily than theirs.
