- That girl doesn't stop talking. She must have urgent matters with her boyfriend.
- I think "...........She must be having pressing matters with........" is better, right?

Thanks a lot!

    When I have urgent or pressing matters, it usually means that I'm too busy to do something because I'm dealing with these matters or that I have to get somewhere quickly to deal with them.

    The first sentence doesn't fit well with the second.

    To me, if you say "that girld doesn't stop talking", it indicates that she is ALWAYS like that, like it is part of her personality.
