Love shouldn’t be so complicated all the time.
Sometimes, all it takes is expressing your intentions and your emotions clearly.
I wish you knew that. I wish you’d just told me how you felt about me right away, instead of making me guess and leaving me to turn cold and look for love elsewhere.
I was never the spiteful type; you could’ve just been honest.
We stopped talking because you failed to take initiative.
I’m not here to chase you. I was ready for a mature relationship, not some teenage puppy love filled with passive-aggressive behavior and unspoken words.
Unfortunately, the way you acted has forced me to become colder. That didn’t happen because I didn’t care, it was because I wanted you to do something.
I’m done with men who can’t take initiative and wait for me to start something first.
Who are we kidding?!
I have no problem admitting I’m a strong, bold woman, but that only means I need a strong, bold man too.
A man who’s decisive and ready to take action. A man who doesn’t let things just happen, but puts effort into reaching his goals.
That’s the kind of man I want.
I want to be sure he’s committed. I don’t want to spend the rest of my life thinking I’m not enough.
I want a man who has long term goals and lets me know, without hesitation, that I’m one of them.
I want a man who will make sure to always understand me and communicate with me daily.
I don’t want to beg for anything.
I want someone who can follow me and won’t be afraid. Someone to share my future with. Someone to make me feel special.
A person who is ready to put me first and be proud of me. Until I find that man, I’m ready to stay single, I’m not afraid.
I’d rather stay single than waste my time on a man who is not committed.
If you’re not committed, that means you’re not serious about me. You treat me like an option.
And I’m so much more than that. I deserve better.
Luckily, I don’t base my self-worth on whether I’m in a relationship or not. I choose to accept my life as it is and enjoy it.
I’m deeply convinced that someone out there is just the right for me. I know that person will never make me guess our commitment and our love.
He will never let me doubt the most important thing in a relationship. We will talk about our deepest emotions and secret wishes. He will make sure I feel safe with him.
He won’t insist on the childish things that make me uncomfortable. Instead, he will act like a grown man and his actions will make me trust him.
He won’t make weird remarks, ignore me in front of his friends, interrupt me while I talk, mansplain things to me, or text with his ex and act like that’s okay.
Time we spend together will fill me with hope, joy, and happiness and by that, I will know he’s the one.
He will make me laugh like no one else, make me breakfast in bed, and let me pick the movie. I will feel valid and cared for.
That’s what I never felt with you. That’s why I gave up. You couldn’t give me the simplest thing I needed.
You never gave me the devotion I need to feel appreciated.
You took me for granted and this is what happened. I said goodbye.
Interestingly enough – I didn’t even miss you, which made me realize it’s because you were never really there to begin with. You were somehow passively selfish.
I didn’t like that.
There’s too much life in me. I set myself free by letting you go.
I outgrew the need to be loved by someone who doesn’t show he cares for me.
At the same time, I started loving myself to prepare for the one who will make sure to show me his love every day of his life.
