If you are a really busy person what is the best way to keep friends when you have to keep turning them down when they ask you out?

I think you have more than a problem of being busy. I know kids that study hard in college, hold down 2 jobs and still have some time for their friends. If you don't start MAKING the time you are not going to hold any friends. They'll just quietly move on. You need to get your priorities straight and change your living habits. Everyone deserves to have a little fun. Marcy
