That that is what you look for. Duh? I suppose your other choice is to create your own dating site where the requirement for signing up is that they match YOUR dating requirements.

Good luck. You're going to need it.

Whatever

My question to other people: Did any of you use "other" social networks such as facebook and linkedin to seek for a new date and contact them via those social networks, or you strictly stick with "online dating sites" (paid and/or unpaid ones) in seeking and contacting your potential dates? I mean, you do have real data about you on facebook and linkedin, so that might be both advantage and a disadvantage, I don't know.
I would NEVER use FB or LinkIn for dating prospects. Ever.

The people that use facebook for dating are usually creeps. Every girl I know gets those random guys adding them.... they do nothing but laugh.

Is "being busy" some sort of a status symbol?
Some people are that busy and not looking for a full time relationship. They are looking for someone who is OK with that. Nothing odd about it.

It's still a relationship, even if only bi-weekly.

I wonder what makes them think they will have time for a good solid long term relationship/marriage/children etc. if they currently do not have time to even go out into the real world and find a date on their own without using a dating site.

When my son was younger, I had a very small amount of time to devote to anything other than my him, my job, taking care of my home, and the gym. While I did enjoy the occasional night out to listen to music, I had no desire to hang out just hoping to find a connection with someone - I would rather stay home and be with my son, or get some work done. My small amount of free time was MUCH better spent using Match, or POF, to find those connections. Pretty much every relationship I have had, since I started back dating, has come about through a dating site. I am with my current SO for over three years, and he was very understanding of my time limitations. He is/was also busy, so it has worked for us.

Really people. Stop whining about other people's lives, and go make one for yourself.

IMO, people who are up front about being very busy are just putting it out there that they are not "on-call" in a relationship. That they juggle many priorities, and that they are looking for someone who is flexible and understanding of that.

Not everyone will be. Hence the reason they are up front.

That said, I have also seen where that statement can be a cover for lack of real (or deep) interest. Someone is sort of interested, but not really. More like a tire kicker.
