As much as we don’t want to admit it, all of us can relate to the experience of undermining our self-respect to pursue someone that doesn’t reciprocate our feelings. In the world of modern dating, there are many people that love the thrill of the chase. I oftentimes hear individuals saying that chasing the person you like is the most romantic and exciting part of the dating process. Well, if you ask me, it’s not.
There isn’t anything romantic about pursuing someone and desperately wanting them to like you back.
When you pursue someone, it means that you’re in a perpetual state of unease with a bunch of doubts and questions hovering over your head every day. You feel restless. You’re not sure whether the chase is worth the effort. You’re constantly second-guessing and wondering about everything. Well, that is certainly not romantic and fun.
Therefore, don’t settle for just anyone – settle for the person you don’t have to chase. The person who freely and proudly wears their heart on their sleeve. The person that doesn’t feel ashamed or afraid to undress their soul in front of you and show you all their vulnerable sides.
Don’t settle for just anyone – settle for the person who lets you know how they feel about you. The person that never makes you doubt their love for you and where you stand in their life. The person that doesn’t make you pursue them.
Don’t settle for just anyone – settle for the one who doesn’t make you doubt your worth. The one who doesn’t make you question your strength and qualities. The one who doesn’t make you feel unappreciated and unlovable. The one who doesn’t make you feel like chasing them is all you deserve.
Don’t settle for just anyone- settle for the one who treats you the way you deserve. The one who treats you with kindness, compassion, affection, and dignity. The one who makes your life more meaningful, satisfying, and exciting than it already is. The one who makes you feel happy, fulfilled, and love.
Don’t settle for just anyone – settle for the person who is always there for you. The person that enjoys spending time with you. The person that sticks with you through thick and thin, and not because they feel obligated but because they truly want to.
Don’t settle for just anyone – settle for the one who isn’t afraid to express their love for you. The one who makes you feel desirable even when you look like a mess. The one who loves you and thinks you’re beautiful on both your best and worst days.
Don’t settle for just anyone – settle for the person that shows you that you’re in this together. The person that fights for you. The person whose greatest fear is losing you. The person that doesn’t make you chase them…
