I don't think anyone has time to do anything with the gas prices so damn high.

dianoor, I have to agree with you 100%...and the fact that you realize this at such an early age is great...so many people don't, even a lot who are older than I am and should realize how to do it, don't know how to prioritze their time and fit in all they want in their life. Quality time is way more important than qwuantity, and while it' snice if one can have both quality and quantity, if I have to settle for only one until their life is a little less crowded, then I'll take quality time every time.

God this is exactly what I was just going through and I had to end it. Her excuse was always "busy busy busy" but with hardly any attempts to actually schedule something. Her motto was "let's take it day by day and see what happens." I've learned now that that means they are going to string you along for as long as you let them so they have someone there. Don't let them do it.

It doesn't matter how busy a guy is (or girl) - if they are interested, they will make time for you. Just because they are busy doesn't mean that they don't want to meet somebody who is worth the effort to fit into their schedule.

Yes, a long term relationship means "contact more than once a month or week". Once a month is just ridiculous not matter what you're talking about, but once a week - that depends on what you mean by "contact". Actually seeing the person? Or any type of contact?

When people ARE busy, they might only see each other once a week - but if they are interested, they'll be in contact much more than that! E-mails only take a moment. A phone call can be managed while driving home (hands-free, of course) or while making dinner. Maybe they don't have time to go out for dinner during the week, but manage to meet for a quick coffee just to see each other.

If somebody isn't making that effort, it doesn't necessarily mean that they're interested in a long-term relationship - just that they're not interested in a long-term relationship with YOU.
