If You Are Not Ready To Love Me For Real, Quit Wasting My Time And Leave


I am a person who believes in love. Someone who seeks for that everlasting, all-consuming joy of being loved. Someone who believes in the good in people and loves from the bottom of my heart.

I don’t have time for half-assed relationships. I never had. When it comes to love, I’m all in or all out. So, if you choose to come into my life, share your deepest secrets with me, give me the key to your heart and pursue me, I will be happy to give you twice as much.

But, if you think that you could string me along and play those childish games on me, you’re mistaken. Because I have no time for people who are not completely serious about their intentions. I am not into the thrill of chasing after someone. I don’t appreciate friendships with benefits. To me, love is a sacred thing.

I work hard for the things that matter to me. I put a lot of effort and time into the things that make me happy. And love… well, love is the most important part of my life. Without love, I feel hopeless. Empty. Miserable. That is why, when I see a chance of love, I am ready to give everything to make it work. But only if the other side shows the same level of willingness and commitment.

As I said, I’ve never been a fan of those childish, catch-me-if-you-can games. As a matter of fact, I’ve always been turned on by real love. True Emotion. Genuine hearts. People who know exactly what they’re looking for.

So, spare me the trouble.

If you like me, show it to me. If you want to get to know me, talk to me. If you think that you’re falling in love with me, express your real emotions. Stop running away from intimacy. Stop engaging conversations about meaningless things. Ask me how I’ve been feeling, instead. Ask me what sets my heart on fire. Ask me what makes my soul sing. Ask me what scares me the most. Ask me what I hate. Get to know the real me.

If you want to be with me, then stop being so passive and scared about it and make the step. Stop hiding behind your text messages and funny comments. Stop acting immature. Stop playing hot and cold. I know exactly what I want from life. And wasting my time on a person who wonders if they like me is not it. I have better things to do than to question myself if I made the right choice or not. When it comes to love, I need stability.

So, please. If you are not ready to be there for me, leave.

If you are not ready to love me for real, stop stringing me alone.

If you can’t handle me, let me go.

If you can’t take the time to really get to know who I am, you are not the one for me.

If you can’t imagine a future besides me, you are just wasting my time.

If you are too afraid to open your heart and let me in, we’re not meant for each other.

It is scary, I know. But that is the beauty of it. Only the ones who are willing to fight alongside each other and face their fears together succeed at it. If you can’t be that person for me, leave and let me find my happiness somewhere else.
