Dating When You’re a Busy Professional

Too Busy For Dating?

As a busy professional it can be a challenge to balance work, life and dating. If you’re like most single professionals, you’re too exhausted to plan a social life, so instead you end up binge watching TV or hanging out at the same old meat markets. There never seems to be enough time to plan fun and exciting things to do to help unwind from the busy work week.

Maybe you’ve even given online dating a try but found you were spending more time swiping than actually meeting people. If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone. Many professionals simply don’t have the time to date. But having a successful professional life shouldn’t mean that you are excluded from having a happy social and dating life.

A New Way To Meet People

That’s exactly what brought two vibrant and fun members of Events & Adventures together. Just like many single professionals, Jennifer was finding it hard to squeeze in time to date, let alone find someone that wasn’t wasting her time. After years of feeling frustrated with the dating scene, Jennifer felt as though she might need a little help with her social calendar. Jennifer joined her local Events & Adventures club to open herself up to exciting events and the possibility of meeting new people.

Between fun events like river rafting and murder mystery night Jennifer went to unwind with her Events & Adventures group at a Colorado Rockies baseball game. It was there that she was approached by Justin, a good looking, charming guy who was also a member of Events & Adventures. As the game played on they mingled with friends, celebrated with drinks and got to know each other a little more. That night was a perfect pairing of being around the right people in an exhilarating environment.

Their attraction grew as they continued to meet up at events hosted by Events & Adventures. Without the worry of having to plan fun and exciting things to do, Jennifer and Justin could focus on enjoying each other’s company all while getting to know each other. They soon learned that while they were very similar, they were also different in ways that only helped to deepen their connection. Before long, Jennifer and Justin became inseparable and the inevitable happened; they fell in love. When the butterflies didn’t subside, Justin knew that Jennifer was the woman for him and that he wanted to spend every moment he could with her. Jennifer and Justin are now engaged and you can expect that their Events & Adventures group will be there when they tie the knot.

Events & Adventures San Francisco Offers Some Dating Tips

Dating today is different than it was for our parents’ generation. They lived in an era where just sitting down next to a stranger on the ferry could turn into a conversation that might one day lead to marriage and two kids. Our generation lives in a fast-paced world, so sitting down and having a conversation can be hard to manage. Here are a few dating tips for Events & Adventures members that will help make dating in the new millennium much easier.

In today’s world we tend to “play the game,” like arguing with ourselves for hours about when the right time to call back is. We’ve all been there—feeling like we’re at the mercy of someone else’s casual feelings. In a scenario like this, they probably weren’t very interested in making a connection with you at all. You’re left holding on, playing a mind game in hopes that if you just play your cards right they’ll see how ridiculously awesome you are and you’ll both end up happily ever after.  Do yourself a favor and stop playing games—unless that game is dodgeball or a board game with Events & Adventures!

We also make the mistake of looking for instant gratification. We’re all so busy we feel like we don’t have the time to put ourselves out there—after all, who knows how long it will be before you get a chance to see someone again, or how long it will take to figure out where to meet next time you do?  We worry that by the time we figure these things out the person will have lost interest or moved on.

Dating through social media only encourages this mentality; people on Tinder are used to swiping in one direction and finding someone they can hook up with in an instant.  When you date on the internet it’s not who you are, but how you look. Studies have even been done where fake dating profiles were created with objectively terrible personal biographies and pictures of attractive supermodels—and despite how disgusting these fake profiles sounded they still received dozens of messages a day.

Events & Adventures is the perfect way to break this habit; when you join us, all you have to do is show up. We take care of planning the events and finding great people; you focus on starting a conversation with a new friend while playing flag football or putting your brains together to solve the scavenger hunt.

Dating has become a sport. We date because we believe we’re supposed to date. Our schedules are so packed we fit in opportunities to date whenever we can, and often the caliber of the people we meet aren’t the quality of companionship we deserve. But Events & Adventures members have the chance to really connect with people, have rewarding experiences, and the opportunity to build a friendship and see where it leads. So as a reminder, here are some dating tips to help you really make a connection:

  • DO make Eye Contact (Put the phone away!)
  • DONT mistake kindness for attraction
  • DO be original, BE YOU, if they can’t like you for who you really are they are not worth it.
  • DONT think chivalry is dead (it’s not), remember small genuine gestures of kindness matter.

Events & Adventures allows you to be active, be yourself and to create new experiences while making friends. You never know when you might find that special connection.
