Do not call or text me at the last second, because I don’t like feeling like your afterthought. If you want to hang out with me, how hard is it to give me a little heads-up?

I don’t appreciate you resorting to hanging out with me because I am your last option. That is a really shitty way to act toward anyone, especially me, because you know how I feel about you. I am not your backup plan. I am not someone you will fill the day with because you are bored.

I am a first choice. I am someone you make plans with. I am someone you enjoy being with so much that you actually have the decency to make plans in advance because you respect my time and you respect me. Even if it’s a few hours in advance, I will appreciate it.

I don’t like committing to someone who is going to treat me like a second or third option. Like someone who is good but not good enough.

Also, I know that movies make it seem so romantic when a guy appears at a girl’s front door totally announced at midnight, ready to take her on an unexpected adventure but frankly, that kind of shit won’t fly with me.

In all honesty, I’d either be asleep or in my pajamas watching a chick flick, stuffing my face with Ben & Jerry’s, and anyone bothering me at that time would be an inconvenience. And I feel this would be the case with most girls anyway.

I like to make plans. I like to know what my day is going to look like. I don’t just wake up all cute and shit. It takes a little time before I’m comfortably storming out of the house with you, knowing I probably won’t be coming back any time soon. So be a man and make plans with me and commit to them. It’s really not that hard.

If it is, you’re not the guy for me. I’m not a fan of surprises. And as much as I’d like to think I’m spontaneous, I’m really not. That might not be to your liking but it’s my right and I’m not going to feel bad about it.

I want a guy who will love spending time with me and who will never take me for granted by expecting me to drop everything in the blink of an eye just because he has decided to grace me with his presence.

Sorry but no. I’ve got other things in my life, too, you know? I’ve got my friends, my hobbies and an actual life that doesn’t revolve around you. So if you expect me to scream with joy when I see your text at the last second for a hangout session, don’t be surprised if I’m not down.

This may shock you but I don’t just walk around the house dressed to impress and with a full face of make-up on, just waiting for your call. I need time to get ready. I need time to actually think about if I want to go out in the first place. And if you just expect me to be down for anything the second it suits you, you’re a fool.

Last-minute calls really piss me off. It couldn’t be more obvious that everyone else either canceled on you or couldn’t come, so you’re downgrading by calling me. No, sir! I have better things to do, thanks for asking.

Guys really need to respect girls so much more. We’re not just dolls that exist for you to spend time with and for you to show us off. We’re not just here to make your life fun when you’ve got nothing better to do and then go home and wait for your next call.

We actually have fun, happy lives, without you in them, believe it or not. What if I don’t have time to fit you into my schedule that day, huh? You hadn’t thought of that, had you? Well, get used to it. I’m not the kind of girl who feeds off men’s attention and impatiently waits for a guy to show interest in her.

I’m the kind of girl who has her own fulfilling life and who doesn’t fall for fuckboys who are only good for one thing.

If you want my time, you’re going to have to work for it. It’s not hard. Just learn to respect me and put me first every once in a while and I just might clear my schedule for you.

But until you do, don’t bother calling. I’ve got better shit to do.

If You’re Going To Call Me Last Second, Don’t Call Me
