Ryan Lochte is a hit it and quit it kind of guy.

In an interview with TODAY July 31, Ike Lochte explained why her sought-after son is too busy to commit to a single woman. "He goes out on one-night stands," Ike said of the 27-year-old Olympian. "He's not able to give fully to a relationship because he's always on the go."

At Procter and Gamble's Thank You Mom family home in London five days earlier, Ike further explained why her son isn't ready for a relationship. "He's so warmhearted that I don't think he'd want to have a relationship with somebody," she told Us Weekly. "I don't think he wants to get into a relationship."

"It just wouldn't be fair to the girl," Ike added. "He doesn't have the time."
