I’d Rather Be Single Than With Someone Who Doesn’t Value Me

I’ve been there, done that when it comes to jerk guys, and by now I’ve learned enough to realize that being single isn’t nearly as bad as being in a crappy relationship. This is why I’m happy to go it alone for as long as necessary rather than settling for a guy who doesn’t see what I’m worth:

I care about my emotional well-being.

It’s draining to constantly offer my kindness to someone only for it to be completely glossed over like it was no big deal. I’m sick of being treated like my efforts aren’t even noticed or appreciated, so I’ll only be giving my best effort to a guy who truly steps up and shows me he actually gives a crap.

Real love should be kind.

Love shouldn’t be this much of a chore to find, and yet, it totally seems like it is. All I keep encountering are losers who don’t even know how to treat another human being with respect, let alone have a relationship. Maybe it’s just my luck, but one thing’s for sure: I’m looking for a real and natural kind of love that I don’t need to question, but very few guys seem to be looking for the same thing.

I can be patient for as long as it takes.

I’ve managed to survive this long on my own, and even though the occasional player tries to play for me for a fool, I’ve gotten pretty good at avoiding those catastrophes. I feel like I’m getting closer to the right guy for me. I value myself, and I’m perfectly fine continuing to show myself love and kindness until a guy who’s worthy of me comes around and can match that.

I’m done being treated like crap.

I have the power to choose how I’m treated by guys. By walking away from what I don’t want, I’m not only staying true to myself, but also sending the message that some things aren’t okay with me anymore. I refuse to be a doormat or settle for someone who doesn’t think I’m amazing.

I know I don’t deserve the emotional abuse and games I’ve endured.

I can’t count how many times I’ve been completely mind-screwed by a guy who fooled me into thinking he cared about me when he was really just stringing me along to get what he wanted. When I’ve confronted these jerks, all they’ve done is thrown the “crazy” label at me. I’m sick of being treated like my feelings are unjustified. I’ve grown enough to know that the way some of these guys treat women is totally not okay, and I won’t tolerate it anymore. BYE!

My forever guy needs to be someone who knows I’m a prize and shows it.

I shouldn’t need to question how a guy I’m dating feels about me, because if he truly values me, he’ll be showing me on a daily basis. These half-assed garbage attempts at romance are a thing of my past. Now, I want the guy who steps up like a real man should.

I care for my partner, and I deserve the same in return. 

I want a guy who makes me feel special and loved each day, and that’s how it should be. I make a genuine effort with guys that I date, and I’m looking for a man who gives me the same thing. When the right guy looks at me, I should see it in his eyes that he knows I’m worth keeping.

I didn’t work this hard on myself to put up with BS.

I’m doing just fine on my own, and it took me a long-ass time and plenty of hard work to get to where I am. I’m not about to throw it all away by dating a guy who treats me like dirt. I deserve to have a guy in my life who’s happy to have me, and I won’t change my status until he comes around.

I’m truly happy being single.

 Ultimately, it’s my choice to stay single instead of dating another jerk who doesn’t know what I’m worth. I’ve wasted enough time as it is trying to prove my value to a guy who didn’t care to notice, and it gets pretty numbing over time. I’d rather sit back and continue to enjoy the life I already have: the one that doesn’t include a player who appreciate me for who I am.
