Not every person who makes you feel attractive and shows you they care has to be rewarded with the same amount of attention they spoil you with. (1) Not every single one of them deserves. Not all of them are sincere. Some are just bored. Even efforts nowadays can be faked.
You don’t always have to say yes when someone tries to pursue you. Showing them you appreciate them by staying as a friend is not bad.
You don’t agree to be with someone just because they admire you and deserve you for that. (2) You don’t owe them anything. You don’t owe them a yes.
You don’t have to be with someone who looks after you by calling or texting you often. (3) Sometimes, it’s not just about what they are towards you, but what they are towards life. He or she has to be that kind of person who isn’t only active when it comes to dating, or flirting but also in achieving their goals. They don’t have to be already established, but they should at least show they’re trying.
(4) You don’t say yes to someone who says they’ll change once you two are already together, for if they’re truly into you, they won’t set conditions. They’ll respect you.
(5) You don’t say yes to someone because no one else is showing you motives. Sometimes, it’s a matter of timing. You’re just probably at a point in your life where in you haven’t unleashed your full potentials yet. Don’t get me wrong, I believe love doesn’t really have something to do with what one’s capabilities, but at times, they matter too.
