I just got home and would be lucky to have worked an hour today while I was working until 11pm last night.

People are not always busy; they prioritize their time. If someone wants to see you, they'll work around their schedule and find time for it. If they give you the busy excuse, they're just being nice when they reject you.

So that means they may only have time for sex

I've seen profiles of women with no car, stay at home mom, and have 2 or 3 kids, yet they are looking for an all around great guy. You can't come to the table with nothing and expect to get everything. Makes you think everyone feels they deserve the world, yet putting nothing in of effort to obtain it.

Do women get the idea that since they have a vagina, they can get more than they deserve? If I was unemployed, living with my parents, and had a couple of kids, I wouldn't be expecting to get the attractive, career driven woman. I would be the water seeking my same level.

That would be correct. That's why you see empty profiles by some of them. They feel that they have a"golden................" LOL

If you're that busy, why are you "looking" for a relationship?


Is "being busy" some sort of a status symbol?
Actually, I'm too busy to bother with the dating sites.....

I'm too busy giving out free advice to people whether they want it or not..... On CD Forums.....

that's your cue to move on to the next profile. These people are not looking for relationships.

My favorite are the ones who are constantly traveling and never in town for more than one or two days during the month yet wonder why they haven't found "mr or Ms right"

Because some people actually are very busy and don't get a whole lot of free time to get out...Sorry if that's a problem to you?

Why not? There are plenty of men AND women in this situation, those that want a relationship with someone that they can go out with once or twice a week maybe...see a movie, have dinner....whatever. Those people have just as much right to "be on the market" as you do.

They can be on the "HIDDEN MARKET" and not a dating site.

OTOH, I am sure that "being busy (mysterious)" thing got stolen from one of those silly PUA sites from way back when. The idea was to give the illusion to everyone that doesn't give a flip that you are such an allegedly happenin' person and aren't home on any Friday or Saturday night. EVAR. Because who wants to give others the idea that they crash at home once in a while?
