I worked so hard and so long to become a woman I am today, and that’s why the last thing I need is a man who treats me like I am not good enough.
I deserve more than to be strung along. I deserve to be more than someone’s back-up plan or second choice.
That’s why I’m not someone you settle for.
I want to be the only woman you think of. I want to be the only woman you see. I want to be the only one you sleep with. I want to be the only one you dream of.
I don’t want to find out that you were seeing me and somebody else at the same time. If you are not faithful I don’t need you in my life.
I want to know that you are so in love with me that you hate spending too much time without me. I want to be the one you rearrange your schedule and your plans for because you can’t wait to see me.
I want you to steal a few hours in your busiest week just to be next to me.
I don’t want to be just your friend when you introduce me to someone when both of us know that I am so much more.
I want labels. I want to hear you say that I am your girlfriend. I don’t want to fight with your commitment fears and your immature way.If you can’t man up then leave me be.
I don’t need you to text me 24/7 or to tell me your every move. You have your own life to live as I do mine and I respect that.
But I won’t settle for getting a replay 6 hours later or even a few days.
I don’t want to feel like I slipped your mind and that I don’t mean that much to you. If you care… show me with deeds, not with words.
I want you to open up to me and be honest about everything. I don’t want you to lie to me without flinching. Whether the news is good or bad, I want to know it all.
I want you to show up. I am not there to be at your convenience. I am not the one you can cancel plans for the last minute because you find something better to do.
I refuse to be your doormat.
I want you to plan dates ahead. I want to see you thought of me while we were away and you want to do something nice for me.
I don’t want to watch my words and think if something I say will scare you off. I want to be able to talk about my plans for the future. I also want to hear your plans and I want them to include me.
I don’t want you to be someone who can’t tell me if he is going to go to the movies next Saturday with me because he doesn’t plan on sticking around that long. I don’t want a love that’s fleeting; I want the love that stays.
I want efforts, not excuses I am worthy of them. I deserve someone who goes an extra mile for me.
I want someone to spoil me with loyalty. I want someone who gives as much as he takes.
I want to be someone you can picture staying with for a long time — maybe even a lifetime. Who knows maybe we make it, maybe we won’t, but I want you to give us a chance, because I am ready to give us one.
I am ready to trust you with my heart.
That’s why I am not someone you just settle for. I deserve to be someone’s one and only. I deserve a mature man who is ready for a meaningful relationship and everything that comes with that and I sure hope you are him.
