Hello! Let me tell you something about myself that might even shock you: I am a very strong-willed female who knows exactly what she wants and begging for your attention, gratitude or affection isn’t one of those things.

I have been through too much to now get down on my knees and ask you to love me, I have been through way too many bad relationships to again make the same mistake and be polite about my wants and needs.

That’s why, if you aren’t able to give me the things I deserve right away, I do not even want them.

I see that you must be a nice guy. You seem like one of those who does not know that they are hurting a woman, you look like a man who thinks he knows how to respect a woman but also does not know that ‘respect’ includes so many more things than to let a woman be free.

Why don’t you respect me by listening to me?

Whenever I try to talk to you, your mind goes blank and your ears shut down. Repeating myself while you’re on your phone is not what I want a relationship to be.

I want you to look me in the eyes while I’m talking and to give me a reason to continue telling you my story, for I find it to be very important, because I am giving a part of myself to you.

So why do you keep on rolling your eyes? Why do you keep on ignoring me? Do I even want to know? If I have to ask you to listen to me properly, do not even bother staying in my company anymore.

No matter what you think, I am not clingy. Being clingy is something way different from what I am. I am a woman who has had enough of men treating her like something they own, where whatever they do, she will obey them.

I will not. I do not want you to think that I will be staying around no matter how you treat me.

Do not think that I will love you just because of your charming eyes, because I believe love to be something much more than that.

Love is about two people who are prepared to work with each other because of that trembling feeling in their chests telling them that they are meant for each other.

Are you prepared to work alongside me to make this life wonderful? To make this life full of magical moments that you and I will share? You can’t expect me to do all the work while those games on your phone keep on telling you that you lost.

If you keep on turning our love into a game, it will soon be game over, my friend.

I don’t want to be a woman who is nothing more than a conversation starter when you meet your friends.

I want to be a woman whose ambitions and intelligence touch you to the core because you have never seen anyone or anything like her before.

I want you to see a warrior in me when you look into my eyes because of everything I have ever gone through. I want to be seen, appreciated and loved.

I have the right to all these things that I am requesting of you, so if you think that it is too much for you to handle then walk away right now.

I do not want to waste your time, because you might find someone more suitable for you; a woman who doesn’t expect texts from you, a woman who does not need you to stay by her side when she is upset, because if you truly want that—I am not the right girl for you.

If I have to ask for your attention, then I do not even want it. Why would I beg a man to give me something that is the root of every relationship, at least in my opinion? We have to show each other love.

I want you to talk to me and not ignore me. I want you to stay next to me, not walk away when I sit next to you. If you can’t accept my needs, then please leave my life right away.
