Either Date Me Or Turn Me Down — Don't Play Games

Priscilla Du Preez

I have spent an ample amount of time with you, thinking I’m your lover, but it seems you have a different agenda when it comes to dating. Please let me know where I stand so I don’t keep on fooling myself.


I don’t really understand why you make everything about us a secret. With this your attitude, I’m afraid to tell my parents about you or mention your name to my friends because I don’t want to be a laughing stock in the near future.

I am truly determined to build a solid relationship with you, but with the way I see things, I might end up shattering my heart into pieces. I hate to be in a one-sided relationship. If you know what you’re looking for in a woman is not in me, please let me know, and I’ll gladly leave you for good.


I don’t know why I’m feeling this way, but I am somewhat convinced your love for me is not real. I might be wrong though, so please do me a favor by opening up to me.

I am tired of being left in the dark. It will be insane and unwise of me to assume in my mind that you are meant for me while being an object of scorn to other girls. I hate being in a complicated relationship. If you think I am not up to your standard, or for some reasons lack the qualities of your choice, please stop wasting my time and let me go.


I hate asking myself questions about what I mean to you. If you can’t present me publicly to your friends and family, then what is the need of sticking with you. I don't want to be a secret. I can’t be chasing after a shadow, thinking you are all over me. Yes, it will be tough for me to deal with if you say that you don't want to date now, but it is way better than trusting and hoping for a future with you when that is not what you really want.

You call and text me frequently whenever we are not together for weeks, but I have this feeling that there is an undertone to it. I don’t know what you want from me, but what I need from you is L.O.V.E. If you don’t have this for me, stop pretending and tell me upfront. Sometimes I get confused about whether we are just friends or if you are into me.

I hate to assume that you are crazy over me when in the real sense I am just one of those side chicks wasting their time with you. Please come out straight, and I will accept where you stand.

I’m sorry if what I am saying now is contrary to your thoughts about me, but please look me in the eye and tell me what is going on between us. If you have any bit of care for me, please save me from drowning in the mirage of love. I have fallen in love with you already, but save me from drowning by telling me how you feel.


Yes, I love you and care about you so much, but can same be said of you for me? Just let me know, and I will gladly accept what you feel.
