I'm not desperate for a relationship but I love myself enough to know what I want and I'm not willing to be some guys fuck buddy just so I do not feel alone.

It's just not always worth it. A lot of women don't carry their weight in dating. Especially during the beginning.
You might find it distasteful but at least they were direct. They didn't mislead you into thinking they wanted a relationship. Men can't read minds and have no way of knowing if you are interested beyond going for it.
