Can you please stop making us wait?
I know you have learnt the hard way that women respond better if you keep them waiting for you.
I know you are busy and don't feel the need to communicate as much. I know you may not even be that interested. I know you have other options. I know I'm not the best you could probably be with. I know you've got work and friends and I'm not a priority just yet.
But you could just send a message or call to say hi, sorry couldn't make plans this weekend.
I know you need to make me know my place.
But the thing is, while you're thinking all this, or perhaps not even thinking about me at all, I'm really sad.
We get sad and confused, but we're so terrified that we'll appear clingy (shock horror) and annoying that we can't reach out.
It's a catch 22.
I know you feel more in control when you withhold yourself, and yeah I get it. I'm a woman, we get it - we withhold sex to maintain control, I know we do.
But I'm lying here in tears, I'm sad, I like you, we connected, we flirted, we talked endlessly.
I don't play games when I respect someone enough to like them romantically. So please don't play them with me.
I know you aren't heartless, but whenever men do this, it feels like you're all heartless monsters.
I wake up with a broken smile, I'm crying inside but I can't show it because even my friends and family would think I'm being weird and clingy (God forbid). So society be damned for the creature it makes of us all.
I get why you all do it, I'm just asking for you all to stop if you can see that real women never play games. And we go all in, so things that seem so little to you are mini heartquakes to us. And we can't tell anyone.
