When it comes to dating, I'm not one to do things halfway. If you're entering my life romantically, it's either a full commitment or nothing at all. I don't have the energy to play guessing games and decipher if your intentions are genuine or if you're merely exploring your options. If you're not entirely invested in me, please don't waste my time and move on.
1. I'm a busy woman, so if you're getting my attention, consider yourself lucky
I'm selective about who I give my attention to, so if I'm investing my time in you, it's because you pique my interest and I'm willing to explore a potential connection. I'm not interested in having a virtual companion or someone to message when I'm feeling lonely. I lead a busy adult life, so if you're not willing to ask me out on a real date, then it's best to move on and lose my number – it's that straightforward.
2. I'm not looking for part-time love — it's full-time or no time
I've experienced my fair share of almost relationships and mixed signals, and I'm done with the uncertainty. I desire something genuine and significant at this stage in my life. I want one person who is fully committed to being in my life, and I won't waste my time on anything less than that.
3. You either want to get to know me in a real way or you don't — it's pretty simple
Although you may be wonderful, I require someone who is willing to truly invest in getting to know me on a deeper level. This entails making plans together and asking me about more than just superficial details. If you're unable to meet these expectations, please respect my wishes and refrain from interfering with my life.
4. Your vague texting skills are confusing AF — just tell me what the deal is
Repetitively asking about my day or weekend through text becomes incredibly tedious over time. I'm yearning for us to create lasting memories together. If we're not going to make plans to meet up, what's the purpose of constantly conversing? It feels like a waste of time, and it's frustrating.
5. If you want to get to know me, do it face to face instead of texting me at your convenience
I'm not a girl you can text whenever you're bored and lonely. I have my own life to lead, and I'm not interested in idle conversations that lead nowhere. I prefer to spend my time on more valuable and meaningful endeavors, rather than filling a void in your day.
6. I want a guy who knows what he wants
I've dedicated significant effort to self-improvement and have a clear idea of what I desire and have time for in my life. What I require is a mature man who shares my values. This isn't a game where you delicately maneuver around my heart. If you're not ready to commit wholeheartedly and pursue a genuine adult relationship with me, then please don't bother approaching me at all.
7. I'm loyal AF, so if you're not, you need to go ASAP
As a woman of great loyalty, if I'm conversing with you, flirting with you, and giving you my undivided attention, it means that you're the only one I'm doing that with. Perhaps my values are traditional or maybe I'm inexperienced, but that's how I function. If I'm just one of many women vying for your attention, please let me go. I'd rather fly solo than be a part of your flock.
8. I want someone who's on the same page
I don't want to second-guess your feelings towards me all the time. If you're treating me casually and not putting in any genuine effort, I'll lose interest quickly and move on. I'm only interested in a man who values my time and his own. I don't want either of us to waste our time on a dead-end when we could be building something meaningful together.
9. I've got stuff to do
I'm growing tired of these lackluster attempts at testing the waters; they've become so monotonous that I can't muster any enthusiasm. The current dating culture's penchant for laziness is beyond my understanding. I have a career to excel at, a home to maintain, a social life to relish, and hobbies to engage me. If you're not genuinely interested in me, please exit my life and stop wasting my time.
