Too Busy to Look for Love?

This story in the Houston Chronicle tells a story that will be very familiar to us. It’s the same old problem of finding a balance between profession life and personal life, applied to singles who find themselves too busy to date. Or as this YouTube song “Addicted to Stress” puts it, “I love to spend a little time with this woman that I’m seeing, except we never really get a little time to spend together, so we call each other up and we talk about work.”

That’s why the motto of Slinky Dating is “Live Life, Love Life”. When you’re “too busy” to find time to socialize, you’re not loving life. What you’re doing is chaining yourself to the treadmill to get ahead, but you never get the time to enjoy the rewards of your hard work. It’s going to be even tougher to find that balance when there’s a global recession going on, so let’s all try to make it our mantra next year: “I will find the time for me, and for the ones I love.”
