"Time is a created thing. To say 'I don't have time' is to say 'I don't want to.'" - Lao Tzu
Oh what a great quote. This applies to every area of life. Obviously i'm going to apply it to dating. I often hear people say that they don't have time for dating. I wouldn't doubt for a second that those are people are very busy. But, I would argue that they have yet to meet someone they truly consider dating potential. Thinking someone is attractive and having a crush do not necessarily constitute dating potential. If you or anyone who is "too busy" to date don't want to make time for someone, then, he or she isn't dating potential.
I have advice for people who say this and for people who hear this.
Those who say it: you have yet to meet anyone worth your time. Keep yourself busy, it makes you that much more awesome for when someone does finally come along. Until then, enjoy all of your new experiences and reserve your precious time for friends and family you care to see.
Those who hear it: Don't take it personally. Just know that one day you'll meet someone who will want to spend a lot of time with you and vise versa. And why waste your time waiting for someone who is super busy trying to fit you into his or her schedule? Instead get out there and keep meeting other great people who want to hangout with you.
"You will never 'find' time for anything. If you want time, you must make it." - Charles Bruxton
Ladies, I have a bone to pick. Can anyone explain to me why we live in this illusion that going out dressed like a hoochie at night will somehow find us Mr. Right? Who was the brilliant scientist behind that great scheme to get everyone to dress like a ho?
Let me fill you in on a little secret: it's only going to find us Mr. Right-Now. Who is Mr. Right-Now you ask? He happens to be the love child from the night Miss Now caught the eye of Mr. Right's dad with her hoochie mama attire. (Boys, there are many girls who apply to this as well.) Mr. Right-Now is only interested in one thing, and that thing sure doesn't bring about wedding bells. So, I just want everyone to quit fooling themselves into thinking one night sexual adventures can lead to life long happiness.
Ladies: no one is thinking of your intellect when your goods are on display for all to see. They are thinking of how they can undress the rest of you. So quit fooling yourselves into thinking anyting different. There is a way in which a woman should dress, and it is not in the most provocative way possible. Ladies we should leave things to mystery while at the same time empasize our assets. It's not that difficult. You notice when other girls are baring it all, so check yourself next time you're leaving for a night out.
