I ask as I am super busy as I run two businesses and have a very active social life.
I find that I tend to get booked up without realising and tend to cancel, not respond for ages (i. e weeks) to guys.
I do make it clear that I am genuinely busy though.
The guys eventually go awol , but I was wondering why men don't have any empathy and thus don't keep chasing to lock a date down?
I ask also as my view was that nothing worth getting was ever easy?
For eg- I have been travelling for work for 4 weeks and out of the country. I told this guy that chased me awhile back about that, and that I would contact him when I got back. And he has just since ignored me...
Not intending to sound obnoxious with any of the above, but you know what I mean - I am just refering to the general/loose turn of phrase etc.

If you're so busy that you don't have time to meet people, then you certainly don't have time for a relationship.
If you're busy so often that trying to meet with you is like playing a raffle, it's a waste of our time.
If you're so busy that it takes weeks to months to even get you to meet, then that's a pretty clear signal that you're not interested.
Guys can empathize with you being busy. However, you need to empathize back that they aren't going to get anything out of waiting around for weeks for you to respond. It's not as though a guy who waits enough weeks (or months) to get a date with you is suddenly going to have his whole life fall into place magically- even if you two become a couple, you're still going to be just as busy. If you can't make the time for dating or a relationship, then there isn't much worth in dating you.
You're definitely taking "nothing worth getting was ever easy" in the wrong context. Dating and relationships are difficult enough as it is; dating someone who can't make time for you just stresses both people out and breeds antipathy, not compassion.0
