You don’t wake up every morning staring at your phone wondering if he’ll text you or not because he already did.

You don’t fear that he will stop texting you or start being short with you because he’s already calling you and making plans.

You don’t think twice before texting him and you don’t have to wait a few hours to text back or worry about being ‘too available’ because he wants to hear from you — he loves hearing from you.

You don’t call your friends to analyze his actions, or ask them what to do because you’re confused and unsure about what he wants from you because he is not giving you much to question, he is not giving you riddles and he is not sending you mixed signals.

He’s honest with you about what he wants and he made his intentions clear before you even had a chance to question them.

You don’t worry about being one of many because you know you’re the only one.

You don’t have to pretend to be chill if you want to see him or if you want to tell him you miss him, he wants to see you too and he misses you more.

You don’t have to be guarded with him because he is giving you all the reasons to trust him and all the reasons to stop being scared.

You don’t have to come up with excuses to your friends and family about your status, he’s willing to meet them because he is serious about you.

And most importantly, you don’t have to lie to yourself or blind yourself from seeing the truth. Everything is clear because he is making it clear — because he is not leaving any room for doubts.

When you date a guy who is sure about you, you become sure of yourself. You don’t wonder if he thinks you’re good enough because he makes you feel like you’re more than enough.

You don’t wake up every day and feel like something is wrong with you because you can’t make a man stay, you don’t stare at your phone hoping, wishing and waiting.

Because he’s always reassuring you with his words and his actions that he’s not going anywhere, and that he is someone you can count on and that he is not like the ones who broke your heart.

When you date a guy who is sure about you, you don’t worry about competing with other women because he already announced that you’re the winner and no one else stands a chance. 

When you date a guy who is sure about you, you remember how it feels to be with someone who makes your life easier, someone who wants to see you smile. He’s not with you to forget his ex or stroke his own ego, he is with you because he doesn’t want to be with anybody else.

When you date a guy who is sure about you, you realize that he is not asking for anything more than your love and he is not afraid to tell you or the whole world that he is falling in love with you. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
