I Want This Scary, Beautiful Thing Called Love

Anonymous Anonymous in Your Story on 19 October, 2017

I’m not the type of person who gets into a relationship half-heartedly. Whenever I’m in, I’m all in and you can count on me.

I don’t want to waste my time with a person who isn’t serious about me. I don’t have the patience for this or the capacity to play mind games with anyone.

I want to give love a chance, but not at the cost of my life: I’m busy getting my life on track and have decided to pay attention to only what matters the most to me. I’m not a fan of ambiguity, ‘friends-with-benefits’ or any kind of vagueness: so count me out if that’s what you’re looking for in a relationship.

You have to want to get to know me, to understand me, know my passions, my history… Don’t ask me what I’m up to, ask me what my weekend plans are. Get to know my dreams, my fears, and my insecurities.

Know that if you want to get intimate with me, you are inheriting a lot of who I am, in the process too. If you can’t handle this, then don’t waste my time.

Don’t be passive anymore, just ask me out already. Stop resorting to online chats, texts or phone calls even, I’m an old soul and believe in the strength of old love. Take the time and effort to get to know the real me.

I will not be yours if love is nothing but a game to you.

Love is both scary and beautiful: and we’re supposed to be facing this all together.

Don’t ignore my calls and messages, especially because it’s not in your style to reply. Because when I decide to behave as you do, only then will you understand just how much this hurts.

Tell me: if we aren’t something that you can see happening, let me know. Let me move on.
