If You Can’t Love Me For Real, Then Please Just Leave Me Alone

Call me a traditionalist if you want but I’m a person who believes in love in its classic sense. I’m the kind of person who believes that it’s only love if it’s unconditional and everlasting. You might say that I’m obsessed with the idea of love, but I don’t really care. It’s the truth. I’m always going to be in pursuit of that amazing love that fills peoples’ hearts with unbridled passion and joy. I’m the kind of person who genuinely believes in the purity of peoples’ hearts and the power of unfiltered love.

I’m not really the kind of person who would be so tolerant of half-assed relationships and casual flings. I’m not going to be okay with just being someone’s short-term hook-up at all. And I’ve never really been that way ever. When it comes to love, I always want to be all-in. you might call me an extremist but that’s just the way that I roll.

In love, I don’t believe in being coy about it. I don’t believe in just exerting the bare minimum when it comes to effort and commitment. It’s always either I’m giving it my all or I give nothing at all. That’s why if you choose to come into my life and bare your deepest secrets with me, then that’s the only time I will ever allow myself to trust you. You have to be willing to show me that you are serious about being with me.

You need to put in the effort to go after me and earn my love. You need to show me that you would be willing to pursue me and win me over. And once I see that your intentions are genuine and that your efforts are worthy, then you can be assured that I will be more than willing to reciprocate those efforts as well. Just show me that you’re serious about being with me and I’ll show you that I can be just as serious about being with you as well.

On the other hand, if you think that I would be okay with you just stringing me along like a lapdog, then you are terribly mistaken. If you think that I would be up for playing those childish games that you like to play, then you might as well not even try. I’m not going to entertain any of that. I don’t want to have anything to do with any of those stunts that you’re looking to pull.

I don’t have any time for people who aren’t going to be willing to take me seriously. I don’t have any time for people who are just looking to play around with me and toy with my emotions. I don’t have any patience for people who aren’t serious about their emotions and feelings. I don’t really enjoy the thrill of being led on. I don’t enjoy the tactics of a person who is merely playing hard to get. I don’t play that game.

I’m not really into the whole idea of friends with benefits either. For me, it’s friends, lovers, or nothing. There can be no in-between. I just can’t get behind the idea of becoming intimate with someone who I don’t have a deep emotional connection with. I can’t wrap my brain around the thought of two people getting it on for the sake of getting it on. I need something much deeper than that. I need something more real.

Love is a sacred thing and it should never be bastardized. I will never actively participate in the lowliness of false love.

I’m the kind of person who likes to work hard for everything that I want in life. And that includes love. I believe in the idea that love is something that has to be earned and worked for. I believe that no one is merely entitled to love. Love is one of the most amazing things that you could possibly ever experience with another human being. And that’s why I thoroughly enjoy being in love. But I also understand and accept the demands and responsibilities that go along with it.

And I need to be with someone who understands these responsibilities as well. I can’t be the only one who is doing all of the heavy liftings in a relationship. I can’t be the only one who is exerting effort into the romance. So, unless you’re willing to put in the work, just spare me the hassles of distracting me with your tactics and your games. I don’t want to have anything to do with your childish advances.

I’m looking for something real. And I want nothing less than a person’s genuine and sincere efforts. If you’re not ready to give me what I need, then we’re better off with you just not trying at all.

  1. Thank u for being in my shoes! That was my motto before I married someone. In the future if I get divorced, I’d rather be left alone. I hate those childish games.
