Sex has become normal and not something to value.
Getting a relationship you want comes down to the confidence you have in yourself.
She doesn’t want to hear excuses about how you really like her and could imagine dating her in the future but the timing isn’t right.
Being ambitious isn’t enough. Far more important than ambition is commitment.
After all, nothing’s scarier than commitment!
Be sure that you fully understand your own worth. There’s a reason why the best negotiation tactic in the world is walking away from the table. In this case, it’s not so much about negotiating as it is about helping him realize that you’re with him only because you choose to be.
That’s what “right” means to me, it means honest.
You deserve exclusivity. You deserve to be someone’s reason to leave the dating scene. You deserve to be someone’s number one. To be someone’s only one.
He may just not be that in to you. He may enjoy the relationship the way it’s going, no strings attached.
A relationship takes 200% effort. If you’re not putting in 100%, it wouldn’t be fair to expect that from others.
