This is a legit point. You can say "I'll always make time for you", and that's something you can, in fact, hold yourself to. But something about specific days may be much harder to keep. Like, what if you fall for someone who initially is free during the week, but then that person has to take a new job and is also only free on weekends, for example? Best not to commit in advance to specific things that may not be compatible with the basic needs (such as time together) of future relationships.
