Life is busy these days. We are maxed for time, running on low energy, yet we want to find a loving and close relationship—but clearly, there is no time.
How can you date if you have no time?
Take a good look at your schedule and see where you are putting your energy. Is it all wrapped up in your career? Family? Friends? Are you constantly looking for things to fill your calendar?
Do you feel more important with your busy lifestyle? Are you addicted to all the action?
We all must remind ourselves that we have control over just about every aspect of our life. That also means we control what we choose to add to our calendar.
Being surrounded by wonderful people brings joy, and that’s what you need to prioritize. If you are thinking about finding a partner to fulfill your life, having room for that person is essential. Nobody wants to date a person that is unavailable or too busy to get to know them. And if that’s the case, they will just move along and meet somebody that will make time for them.
Making Time for Joy
The best way to make more time in your calendar is to lay out what keeps you so busy.
Once you see your life on paper in front of you, you can determine where all your time is going and how you can manage that better. Maybe you have things that are filling your schedule that do not bring you joy. If that’s the case, take a break from those things.
Start thinking more about how important finding a companion is to you. Put some mental energy towards shaping your dating life, who you’re looking to meet, what your non-negotiable’s are, and what kind of relationship you’re looking for. Start writing these things down. Once you’ve articulated them, they will start to take shape.
Planning For Happiness: Put it On The Schedule
Look through your wardrobe. Lay out outfits that you feel great in and believe would be right for a first date. Take photos of them on your phone, so when the time comes, you already know what you’re wearing.
Schedule time into your calendar to be available. Start with a few evenings per week and maybe an afternoon or evening over the weekend to be available for calls with potential suitors and also in-person dates.
Block off time in your calendar even if you don’t have it booked up with calls and dates. You want to make sure you have the time set aside in case you need it!
If you don’t have anything planned, you can use your blocked-off time to surf dating apps and websites. The point is—if you start putting time and energy into your dating life, you will see better results.
In love, dating, and in life, you get what you give. Think about what finding love is worth to you and put the time and energy into making it happen. If you feel like you don’t have the time, get methodical about it.If you genuinely want this to happen, you need to make time and room in your life.
