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.

Let Us Do The Planning

While stories like Jennifer & Justin’s are remarkable, they are not uncommon amongst Events & Adventures members.

With events scheduled every night and planned around your busy schedule, there’s always something fun to do and someone new to meet. If you feel like you’re missing out on meeting fun and like-minded people in your area, Events & Adventures is your social calendar solution.

Making New Single Friends in Dallas

I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and I know lots of people in the DFW area. But one day I proverbially “woke up” and realized I had no single friends! All of my friends were married and most of them had kids. As a very busy 33 year-old attorney, how the heck was I going to meet new people? And I’m not just talking about dating, I mean making new single friends in general. I had heard about Events & Adventures on the radio and decided I had nothing to lose! I like to socialize and meet new people so this group was worth a shot. Long story made short, it’s been about eleven months since I joined and it was without a doubt the best decision I ever made. The people are kind, friendly, smart, and overall, down-to-earth, good-hearted people.

There is an event for single friends every day of the week; I go to as many as my work schedule permits.

As far as the activities offered, there is something for everyone. I personally enjoy the lake and pool parties the most—I’m definitely looking forward to a fun-filled summer! Game nights are fun and a good way to get to know people. I love going to sporting events and it’s great to have a fun group of singles to go with! I had an absolute blast at the “Single de Mayo” party! Event manager Jacque made delicious tacos, had piñatas filled with party favors, and even booked the DJ for the event! The members don’t have to do anything but show up and have blast—how awesome is that! I have blackmail-worthy video of some members dancing!

I recently sat down and wrote out an invitation list for my birthday party next month. It’s at least 90% members of Events & Adventures. I laughed and wondered what I did before I met all of these amazing people! Events & Adventures has truly given me life-long friends. Not to sound cheesy, but these are people I’ve laughed and cried with. They are the kind of single friends that I can call if I need a ride, if I want to catch a movie, or if I need help moving furniture. If you are single and not in Events & Adventures, you are definitely missing out!
