I’m A Grown Woman And I Don’t Have Time For A Childish Kind Of Love


I’ve been in immature relationships before. People have played me, wasted my time, and taken advantage of me. To be honest, I let it go on for a while, but there comes a time when enough is enough. At some point, I had to put my foot down and decide that I wasn’t going to take that kind of crap.

I’m not a kid anymore. My life is busy, I have responsibilities, and I’m trying to build a future for myself. Most of all, I’m more mature than I used to be. I’m a grown woman and I don’t have time for a childish kind of love.

I Don’t Want Any Games

To my knowledge, I left school a long time ago. Likewise, as far as I can tell, I’m not in the middle of a schoolyard. So why are people still playing games?

Sure, maybe it was all just for fun when I was younger, but I’ve passed that stage of my life. I’ve grown up and I’m ready to leave the silly games behind me. The thing is though, it seems like other people still aren’t stopping.

You can go ahead and play whatever you want, but I’m not putting up with it. If I see that you’re just trying to be a part of some game, I’m just going to quit. You’re going to need to find someone else to be a part of it cause it sure as hell won’t be me.

I Want Someone I Can Talk To

Seduction, dating, sex, that’s all great – but I want more than that. I need to have a real connection with someone. More importantly, I want someone that I can share ideas with, debate with, and challenge, but who will still be there at the end.

I want us to talk to each other, not about each other.

If I can’t speak to you when I don’t feel happy about something in the relationship, then you’re obviously not worth my time. As well as that, if you aren’t mature enough to have a discussion, I don’t want anything to do with you.

I Need Support

When I was a teenager, I dated someone just because of their taste in music and because they had a cool skateboard. Now, my taste has evolved. I don’t care about superficial things like music taste or how “cool” you think you are. What I really care about most is finding someone who I can rely on.

Life gets tough sometimes and I need to know that the person I’m with will stick with me through it all. I need a partner who will laugh with me, cry with me, and pick me up when I fall. Most of all, I want someone who will love me even at my lowest points.

The only person I’ll be with is someone who’s willing to support me in the same way that I will support them.

Dating is hard. It becomes even harder when the people who are interested in you just aren’t mature enough to be in a relationship. The thing is though that I’m no longer willing to settle for a childish relationship. I want a mature kind of love, nothing else.

To the person reading this who’s sick of playing games, stay strong. You’re going to find someone mature who will love you in the way that you deserve to be loved. Trust me, they’re out there.
