I used to live in a delusion that I’m the type of person who is hard to love. I thought the problem was in me or maybe I expected too much, only to realize that you’re just not trying hard enough.

Most of the best things in life are the most difficult to achieve and maintain. Requiring effort doesn’t mean I’m hard to love. It means I’m a challenge and real men will not be afraid to approach it.

A real man won’t be afraid when I show him my true self. He won’t be afraid of my complex mind because he sees it as a riddle that he has to solve in order to win me and experience the beauty of my selfless love.

And a real man will not make excuses when he has to roll up his sleeves and fight for me. Instead, he will embrace it and see it as an opportunity to learn something new and improve himself.

I’m a challenge and you’re not making an effort.

There’s a difference between being hard to love and being a challenge. When you’re hard to love, no effort can make a difference because the problem lies within you.

On the contrary, being a challenge means you know your worth and you want them to fight for it.

Yes, I’m a challenge because I know my worth and you’re not trying hard enough to win me.

Demanding effort doesn’t mean I’m hard to love. It means you have to work hard in order to reap what you sow.

And if you think I’m asking too much of you, don’t even bother staying because I don’t have time for lazy people or lame excuses. The past has taught me to appreciate my time and to be careful with whom I’m spending it.

I’m not perfect and you’re just not trying hard enough to accept me for who I am.

No, I’m not perfect and I’ll never be perfect and that’s not making me hard to love. I’m perfectly aware of all of my flaws and quirks and they are a part of my being.

They make me who I am and you have every right not to like them but don’t even try to change me. If you cannot accept me for who I am, you don’t deserve me.

All of my imperfections will be perfections to the right guy and I will never change myself for some casual romance only to appease you. No. I’m not hard to love.

You just don’t appreciate me enough to make an effort to discover the true me. But, if you did, you’d be surprised about what you’ve been missing.

I know what I want and you’re not giving it.

If I tell you I like you, I really mean it. I will never say one thing and then with actions prove something completely different and I expect from you the same treatment.

I don’t have time for mind games, manipulations or other childish games you might want to play. I know what I want and I will make sure to tell you.

And if you’re not giving it, I will not waste my time waiting for you to change your mind. Knowing what I want and not tolerating bullshit doesn’t make me hard to love.

It makes me the creator of my own happiness and if you don’t want to be a part of it, don’t make excuses about me being hard to love. Be a man and admit that you’re not giving me what I’m asking for.

I’ve been hurt before and you’re just not trying hard enough to gain my trust.

Just because I’ve been hurt before, it doesn’t mean I’m hard to love. It means I’m cautious about whom I’ll give my heart and trust.

If you take me for granted, I will not trust you. If you lie to me, I will not trust you. If you cheat on me, I will never forgive you.

I’ve been hurt before and I think I deserve your respect and to be treated equally. If you try hard enough to gain my trust, I will also try hard enough to open my heart. And you’ll see that I’m not that hard to love after all.
