Dating a busy guy
And that’s where rule number three comes to the rescue.
There’s this concept I learned about during a terrible seminar I wish I never attended.
So tell him upfront you don’t expect to go to a movie afterward or talk in a coffee shop till midnight.
They let this business consultant guru have the platform for way too long, and he had nothing useful to say.
That is, he had nothing useful other than this one particularly fantastic idea.
He’ll appreciate it and his respect for you will rise along with that appreciation.
Rule Number Two for Dating Busy Men: Don’t Bid for His Time, Own His Time. The faster you can set up a recurring plan for interaction (a micro-tradition), the less you have to compete with other demands on his time.
To make your relationship with a busy man work you have to be flexible, independent and keep your love on his mind without distracting him from his important jobs. Although you can’t be at his “beck and call” all the time, you can accept a spontaneous invitation to lunch or a late dinner when he is available as long as you don’t simply become a “booty-call.” Keep it short and sweet.
