The funny thing is I had made a big decision to stop dating for a while to focus on my divorce and deal with some problems I was having with medication that I've since stopped taking. The medication issues seem resolved, the divorce is still stressful, and I've got a work project that is demanding.
As soon as I made up my mind to slow down and give myself space, though, all these guys got interested. I didn't want to ask for lots of delays in meeting them, in case that would make me look flaky or close the windows of opportunity.
But you're right, it's mental space I am really in need of. In addition to better calendar management.
