If You Can't Acknowledge Me In Public, Then I Won't Have Sex With You In Private

If we only have a physical relationship and you don't acknowledge me in public, I will leave. It's important for you to acknowledge our relationship in both private and public settings.

1. I'm nobody's dirty little secret

Don't try to hide our relationship. If we both want to keep it casual, that's fine, but don't do it because you're ashamed of me. I deserve to be acknowledged in your social circles. Let your friends know that you know me, even if they don't know the specifics of our relationship.

2. I have self-respect

I deserve to be treated with respect and not just as a casual sexual partner. Even if we only have a physical relationship, it's important that you acknowledge me in public. I may not be a significant part of your life, but I am still a part of it, so either show me proper respect or I will have to leave.

3. If you're ashamed of me, I'm more ashamed of you

You should be ashamed of yourself for treating me this way. It is disrespectful to be willing to be intimate with me in private but not acknowledge me in public. It suggests that I am not good enough for your friends to see. There is nothing wrong with me, but your behavior is unacceptable.

4. I don't give away my goods for free

Stop treating me like a possession. I am a person, not a tool for your pleasure. I am not obligated to be with you, it is my choice. If you cannot even acknowledge me in public, it makes it easy for me to decide to end our relationship.

5. I don't need you to get my orgasm

I don't need you to treat me poorly. If you think you're too good for me, then I don't need you. If you won't acknowledge me in public, then I don't want you in private. I'll be just fine on my own, but can you say the same for yourself without me?

6. You don't have to be my boyfriend, but we don't need to be strangers

It is immature to avoid each other in public and pretend we don't know each other. We both like each other, so why can't we acknowledge each other in public? We don't have to define our relationship to anyone else, but we can at least admit that we are friends.

7. Our Private Life should stay private

But that doesn't mean we should have no public presence as a couple. I don't expect you to shout about our intimate relationship from the rooftops, but it's important for you to acknowledge me when we run into each other in public. Our private relationship can stay private, but there's no need for our public relationship to be a secret.

8. These are my terms

You can either accept these terms and continue our physical relationship or continue to ignore me, in which case it will end. I am not asking for a commitment, all I want is for you not to be ashamed to be seen with me in public. It may not seem like a big deal but it is hurtful to be ignored.
