This is quoted from Steve Harvey's new book, "Act like a Lady, Think like a Man." I'm about half way through it and have learned quite a bit. One being that it is important for a man to feel like a MAN. Besides they have only been taught that since birth. No crying when you fall down and scrap your knee, stand up for yourself (even if that means you have to throw a punch every now and again), make something of yourself, and lastly make lots and lots of money. That's a generalization, but pretty much right on target with how society defines a 'man.' So, until a man is a MAN, that's all he is focused on. Hence the too busy for me thing.
I think women are this way too, but in a different sense. Even though it's different from prior centuries, some women define their success by getting married, starting a family, and living happily ever after.

I guess this is why people say guys mature at a later age than girls. What that really means is they have certain things to accomplish before they are ready to settle down, focus on a woman, or make time for one.

SO..I'm reading this book and paying close attention because even though men are simple beings they are REALLY hard to understand. Well, they were until I started reading this book. However, now everything is becoming more clear.
And just as a side note, there are always exceptions to the rule and I'm not saying every single man is like this.
