Are you dating someone you really like? Someone you like so much that it doesn't really matter what you are doing so long as you're doing it together? Yeah? Well, we all been there. It's truly a nice feeling to have.
Unfortunately, very often the feelings are not mutual. Very often, you want to spend more time with this person or at least talk to them every day, yet they don't feel the same way about you. And rather than just tell you that the feelings are not mutual or that they just don't have the time to date, rather than be a grown up about it, they give you some poor excuses as to why they can't even shoot you a freakin text. After all, you're not asking for much, you're just asking for them to show you that they think about you from time to time.
If you've ever been in this situation, a situation in which you're the one that's putting in most of the effort, the one that's basically saying, "Hey, let's try to get to know each other better. You know, instead of wasting our time." If you are, stop it! I'm serious. You're better than that. Don't lower your standards of what you're willing to accept from someone simply because you really like them. All you're doing is teaching them how to treat you.
Because the fact is, if someone were truly serious about you, you know, if they actually believed, "I really like this person. I could see a future with them." If they believed that, they would do things that would make you want to stay, not do things that would make you doubt your decision to stay. Ignoring your texts or calls, giving you crappy excuses as to why they can't see you, these are all things that make you doubt your decision to continue with them. As such, these should be things that push you away, for good.
And after you come to your senses and stop dealing with them, if they try feed you some nonsense, such as, "Oh, I'm sorry, I took you for granted," or, "I didn't really know how much you really meant to me. Please forgive me." Because believe me, they will. It's common tactic. Tell them to fuck off! Block them from everything if you have to.
And if they somehow still manage to reach you, tell them that they better quit it.. And that if they don't, you're gonna screenshot and post all their pathetic attempts all over your social media so others can see how pathetic they are.
So, don't be someone who still texts them even when they haven't replied for hours or even days; don't the person who just sits at home thinking if they are even thinking about you, the person who makes themselves available whenever they want to see you, the person who makes them a priority while they treat you like an option.
Don't be that person. Because you will never be their priority, you will never have their respect. Their loyalty? Ha, you can for sure forget about that. Don't be a fool. Don't ever be someone's part time, spare time, or "whenever I have time." If you aren't a priority in a relationship that you want for a long time, then wise up, and say "Fuck this, you aren't worth my time."
