How to tell a guy you don’t want to date?

Each person, at certain life stages, makes prioritization. Some seek to build relationships and create a family. Others direct all forces and ENERGY into the working channel. Still others simply live for themselves, and they don’t really need anyone.

It also happens that a person tries to mix: relationships + work + personal hobbies + meetings with friends = an interesting and eventful life. And everything is fine until the necessary time proportion is observed. But when something from the priorities begins to demand more time for itself, and it needs to be taken away from other segments of life, a conflict arises.
