I Don't Entertain Guys Who Send Mixed Signals

It has become all too common for guys to give mixed signals in dating, which is incredibly frustrating. I don't know whether it's because they're shy or they enjoy playing games, but if a guy is interested in me, he should make it abundantly clear from the get-go. If not, then it's his loss.

1. I'm Not A Detective

As much as I enjoy cop shows and true crime novels, I have no interest in becoming a detective. Trying to decipher what he means from a single text message is far more difficult than it needs to be. If a guy's mixed signals are enough to challenge a private investigator, how can I compete with that? I simply won't.

2. I Don't Have The Time For BS

The countless hours I've spent analyzing guys' words and scrutinizing their messages have been a waste. I'll never get those hours back, not to mention all the sleepless nights. I value my time too much to waste it on someone who can't straightforwardly tell me that he likes me.

3. Games Are For The Playground

The chase used to be exciting, but it's lost its appeal for me. I've never been one to play games when it comes to emotions, but too many guys seem to think that's the only way to go about it. To me, that's immature. If he wants to play games, that's fine, but he'll have to find someone else to play with. I'm not interested.

4. It's Time To Grow Up

It's understandable that talking about feelings can be daunting and outside of some guys' comfort zones, but that's no excuse. If a guy truly cares for me, he should be willing to put himself out there and be vulnerable. If he's not willing to do that, how can we ever hope to have a successful relationship? I'm only interested in dating mature men.

5. I've Walked Away From Guys Like This Before And I'll Do It Again

I have progressed beyond guys who play games. I don't have to scrutinize every aspect of a man's intentions towards me anymore. I've advanced and left all the perplexity that arises from mixed signals behind. Experience has been beneficial, and it has taught me how to walk away from guys who provide nothing but mixed signals- quickly and confidently, without turning back.

6. Even My Friends Are Over It

If your friends have grown tired of listening to you talk about a guy, it's a clear sign that he's not "The One." My friends are usually very supportive and have a good sense of what kind of guys I'm interested in. However, they've become exhausted by my constant distress over guys who can't express their feelings clearly, and I can't blame them for feeling that way.

7. I Don't Need Validation

I'm not looking for validation from men who are attracted to me. What I really want is someone who wants and needs me enough to make it crystal clear. All I'm seeking is straightforward communication and a guarantee that I'm not wasting my time on a man who won't reciprocate.

8. Communication Is Sexy

Communication skills should be at the top of our partner wish lists. Good communication isn't just important for a long-term, healthy relationship; it's also incredibly attractive when a man can articulate his thoughts, feelings, and desires in a straightforward manner.

9. I'll Take Cheesy Over Charm

I'll choose a sappy guy over a smooth talker any day. I want a man who wears his heart on his sleeve and leaves no room for doubt about his feelings for me. While the enigmatic, charming type may be alluring initially, it's cheesy, direct declarations of love that will truly make me feel loved and cherished.

10. I'm Looking For Something Real

While casual dating can be fun for a time, I'm ultimately looking for true, lasting love. Keeping me on my toes may be thrilling in the beginning, but eventually, I want a partner who stands beside me with both feet planted firmly on the ground. I need someone who is sure of what he wants—me.

11. Love Me Or Lose Me

We all deserve a partner who is open and honest about their feelings for us. The philosophy of "love me or lose me" is an excellent mindset to have when entering into a relationship. Ultimately, no one wants to be unsure about their love. If he loves me, he should tell me; if not, he shouldn't be shocked when I move on. Adios!
