Don’t Get My Hopes Up If You Have No Intention Of Staying

I don’t have the strength or will to convince you how special I actually am because I don’t like comparing myself to other girls. But there’s something that I need to get off my chest so that you better understand me: I’m searching for genuine, pure love, and nothing less.

I’m not the type of girl who enjoys having one-night stands. Not someone who’s looking for flings or casual dating. And I’m not definitely the type you drag to the bedroom, only to leave her the next morning and never call her back, ever again.

And I don’t consider myself to be better than those who have those things. I understand that each of us has different goals in life and maybe someone doesn’t have time for a real relationship.

But that’s not who I am. That’s not how I roll.

You may think me telling you this is just another mind game to get you to fall for me even harder, but that’s absolutely not true. I’m done with people playing hot and cold because it won’t get you anywhere. You won’t have the chance to experience true love if you only play games with someone’s heart.

DONE! Don't Get My Hopes Up If You Have No Intention Of Staying

Even though I get easily attached, I don’t need a man who’ll just pass through my life, who doesn’t have any intention of staying and will only leave me heartbroken.

I survived a broken heart once and I’m sure not doing it again. It cost me everything to get back on my feet, but I managed to pick the broken pieces together.

Most guys I’ve dated called me old-fashioned because I value long-term commitment and gentleman-like behavior, but that’s only because I grew tired of these modern-day flings and affairs.

I’m not looking for a man who’ll leave me the first time a problem arises. I don’t want temporary love and I’m not afraid to admit it.

My time is precious just like anyone else’s. I don’t plan on wasting it on a relationship that is doomed to fail from the very beginning.

So, don’t get my hopes up if you have no intention to stay. If you already have an exit strategy planned in your head, then don’t bother trying to enter my life because you won’t succeed.

DONE! Don't Get My Hopes Up If You Have No Intention Of Staying

If your plan is to get me in the palm of your hand and take me for granted, then please don’t even make an effort to start anything with me.

And if you’re going to give me half-truths and expect me to believe every word that you say, then don’t even try to get near me in the first place. I always gave my entire self to the relationship and I expect you do the same for me.

Even though many guys hurt me in many ways and I had my heart broken before, I still can say that I believe in true love. Some might think that I’m a hopeless romantic, but I know that there’s someone out there for everyone.

I’m only interested in giving and receiving unconditional love that lasts a lifetime. Nothing less.

I won’t give a piece of myself to an immature boy who can’t make up his mind about me. For some toxic manipulator who’s incapable of giving love and who’ll end up tearing me apart once again.

The truth is, I’m not ready now and I’ll never be to start something that I know has an expiration date. Those types of relationships aren’t my thing at all.

So, don’t get my hopes up if you don’t plan on staying.

DONE! Don't Get My Hopes Up If You Have No Intention Of Staying

If you’re one of those guys who doesn’t believe in true love, then please don’t come anywhere near me. Don’t even bother getting to know me if you aren’t looking for your forever person and your happily ever after.

I know that it’s only natural for men to chase women, but I don’t want to be chased by a guy who doesn’t want to create a deep and meaningful connection with me.

Someone who’s not searching for something that will last a lifetime and that’s 100% real.

Also, if you’re not ready to commit and be faithful to me, then please don’t date me. I’m not saying that there are no good guys out there, but many of them string girls along and play mind games with them.

So, if you need a woman who’ll only help you get through your day, a woman who’ll be your second choice until “better” comes along, then please don’t come into my life at all.

I won’t let you shatter my heart and leave me broken, I promise you that.

My emotional scars are a reminder of what I’ve been through and those unforgettable wounds have changed me for good. I’m not the same person I used to be.

But despite all of that, I still believe in love and try to look on the bright side of life. So, if you’re going to try to turn me into a negative and hateful person, then just don’t do it.

DONE! Don't Get My Hopes Up If You Have No Intention Of Staying

Don’t do it if your only goal is to destroy my faith in love because you won’t accomplish that. And just to put it out there, I won’t ever chase after you or beg for your attention or love.

I’m better on my own if you plan on ducking out every time things get tough between us.

And who knows, maybe I’m asking for too much, but I promised myself that I would rather stay single than be in a loveless relationship – to be with someone who won’t ever satisfy my needs or give me the love that I deserve to receive.

So, if you have no intention of staying, don’t get my hopes up.
