In a healthy relationship, you get as much as you give. There’s a mutual level of understanding and care there, and you feel loved and supported all the time. If that’s not happening, you need to GTFO. If you’re dating a guy who doesn’t seem to care about your feelings, why do you care about his?
Never fight for a man who’s not willing to fight for you.
If you do that you’re just fighting a losing battle. In a relationship, you’re partners and you have to work together, but if he’s not fighting for you then he’s working against you and you’ll never survive. You have to both care about each other and what you have. You deserve a man who fights to have you in his life, not a man who couldn’t care less either way.
If he’s not boyfriend material, don’t bother trying to change him.
As much as you might want to try, a man will never change just because you want him to. Men only change and grow if they want to, not because a woman is forcing them to do so. Don’t go for the rough draft kind of guy who needs some serious good guy lessons—go for the man who deserves your love because he’s already a finished project who’s ready to care about you and have a real relationship.
Love should be a two-way street.
If you’re stuck in an unrequited love, you’ll never be satisfied. The only way this relationship will end is in your own heartbreak. You might think he loves you—he might even tell you so—but if his actions have made it clear that he doesn’t care about your feelings in the slightest then his words are empty. If you care about how he feels and you don’t get the same care in return, his love isn’t real.
You shouldn’t have to ask a man to simply care.
You deserve so much better than to have to beg for a man’s love. Why do you care so much for a man who doesn’t even treat you right? What are you getting out of this relationship and why don’t you know you’re better off alone? If he doesn’t care about you, don’t waste another second thinking about him.
You can’t be the only person in the relationship making an effort.
You can’t live your life giving everything and getting nothing in return. You’re just going to burn yourself out. He’ll keep taking you for granted and the longer you let him, the more you’ll stop caring about yourself too. Being the only person making an effort is exhausting but the worst part is it’s going to eat away at your self-esteem too.
If he doesn’t care now, he never will.
If he even cared about you as a person, he’d care about your feelings but he doesn’t. So what does that tell you? Why are you staying with a man who doesn’t give a damn about you? He doesn’t care about you as a human being let alone a woman he’s supposed to be in love with, so stop expecting him time to change him because the truth is no amount of time ever will.
Plenty of men will care.
So don’t waste time on the ones who don’t. If you think this is simply what all men are like, you couldn’t be more wrong. When men are actually interested in you, they actually give AF. You’re an amazing girl but you have to have the confidence to realize you deserve a man who actually cares. The more you let a man walk all over your feelings, the more time you’ll end up wasting on just another Mr. Wrong.
You matter just as much as any man.
Especially the man you choose to spend your life with. So don’t settle for a man who sees you as anything less than an equal. A man should make your feelings feel validated. If he makes you ashamed to have feelings or clearly shows he doesn’t give a damn about how you feel, he’s not worth another second of your time. You need to look for a man who thinks of you as a partner, not a subordinate.
Love shouldn’t be full of pain.
Why would you put yourself through the pain of caring for a man who doesn’t give a damn about you? Staying in a relationship like that will only ever bring you pain. The less he cares, the more you’ll feel like you’re just not good enough. Instead of putting all your love into him, choose to love yourself and walk away from the man who couldn’t bother to give AF.
If he doesn’t care about your feelings, he’s going to hurt you.
Why? It’s pretty clear he doesn’t care about you at all, so why would you expect him to look out for your heart? The reality is he doesn’t care what happens to you. He doesn’t give a damn about how his actions affect you. You’re not someone special to him, so at the end of the day, if you don’t matter to him, why does he still matter to you?
