“I Don’t Have Time” – Getting Past Excuses

  At Wise Matchmaking, we constantly hear from singles that they do not have time to find love.  Instead of looking at dating as an opportunity to find their soulmate, some people look at it as a chore - like doing laundry or cleaning the bathrooms.  When we hear "I don't have time to date right now," we try to shift the focus from spouse-seeking to meeting new people.  We believe that finding love is a unique opportunity to get to know yourself as you get to know someone else.  But too often we hear the same complaint over and over "I don't have time to meet someone right now."
