I’m not waiting forever.
I’m not really going to make the time to dissect every single word you say or every single move you make. I don’t really have the time nor patience to devote all of my attention to trying to figure out if you’re really interested in me or not. It’s not something that I should have to be doing in the first place. The fact of the matter is that if you’re interested in me, then you should really just come right out and tell me. It’s not difficult. Sure, it could be scary. But it’s a risk that you just have to be willing to take. The potential for us to be something special should far outweigh whatever fears you might be having.
You really shouldn’t be expecting me to the first one who budges in this scenario. You have to understand that I wouldn’t mind being the one who puts in the effort in planning our dates. I wouldn’t mind actually taking the lead in our conversations and keeping the discussions going. But you have to be the one who initiates all of that. I can’t do any of those things if I can’t be sure whether you’re actually interested in me or not. I don’t to put myself in a position of making a fool of myself assuming that you’re interested in me even when you really aren’t. You don’t even have to fully admit your feelings for me. Just send a few signals my way and I’ll be able to pick up on them. I promise.
I’m not looking to play the game. I don’t see love as a game. I don’t see dating as a game. This is not a game to me. If you keep on sending me mixed signals; if you keep on playing by the rules of the game whenever you’re with me, then you can count on me to never respond in the way that you want me to. I’m not going to respond to hot and cold behavior. I’m not going to respond to inconsistency. I’m not fond of the thrill of the chase. I like it when people are just plain upfront about how they feel. I like it when people aren’t afraid to just go after the things that they want in life. If you’re interested in me, then let me know. Stop beating around the bush.
I need to be able to hear it straight from your mouth. I want to hear you say those words. I can’t be fully confident with just hearing it from your friends or my friends. I don’t want any secondhand information about how you feel about me. I need you to be the one who comes up to me and tells me that your feelings are real; that you’re not just playing around. I want you to come up to me and assure me that you’re not playing any games. Put some ease to my mind and just let me hear the words that I want to hear.
As much as I want to be the one who becomes aggressive in this scenario, I know that society doesn’t tend to respond well to women who are aggressive; women who take the lead; women who just go out and take the things that they want. There are plenty of feelings that I am forced to keep to myself because I am a woman. Only you have the key to open up my emotional door. You are the only one who can let all of my feelings out. You have to get over your fear of rejection. As bad a feeling as it may be to be rejected by someone, it’s not going to be life-threatening. It’s not something that you won’t be able to recover from. The worst that you’re going to experience is only a temporary bruise on your ego.
If you really liked me; if you were truly interested in being with me, then you would know that I would always be worth the risk of being rejected. Also, don’t think that it would take away from the machismo image that you’re trying to project as a guy. Know that there is something inherently attractive about a man who humbles himself and makes himself vulnerable for his women. There are very few guys nowadays who are secure enough in their manhood to just allow their sensitivities to shine. Sensitive men are a rare breed and they are indeed a hot commodity. So just let it all out.
But lastly, if you really want a shot at me, you really have no other options. You have no choice. If you want to get with me, you just have to suck it up. You just have to be a man as you have always been told. You just have to take a risk and hope for the best. If you’re interested in me, then let me know.
