Let’s get one thing clear bro, I turn down men on my own behalf, not yours. Yes, we talk, hang out, and are “seeing” each other, but you have made it very clear we are not in a relationship. Texting all day, everyday, going out together, making meals together- no relationship. Got it. On board. But do not expect me to belong to you. When I turn down other men, it’s because they aren’t good enough for me. I don’t want them. I turn them down for me, not you. You do NOT own me. If we were in a relationship, you would have more sway in my life, but you consistently make it very clear you don’t want a girlfriend. Cool story, bro, I got it. But do NOT expect me to do things on your behalf. I do them for me, and only me. I don’t need you, like you need me. Your consistent “I’m not ready for a girlfriend,” “I’m not looking for a relationship,” “I’m not going to be ready for us to be together” - you’re only trying to convince yourself. I know we aren’t together…do you? You treat me pretty much like a girlfriend, but don’t want that commitment and seriousness. You need me to talk to, to laugh with, to play with, but I don’t need you. I like you, you’re fantastic, sweet, sexy, determined, and a gentleman. But I’m a woman of my own mind.
