Earlier this year I met Jezebel. A week later he asked me to be his girlfriend. While I was flattered and even intrigued by his charm I told him without hesitation that wasn’t possible. I saw the selfishness which is the root of pride, arrogance, manipulation & control. I told him he needed to get over himself, be healed and that I needed time to see who he was. A person can tell you anything. Time reveals who they are.
So we talked a few weeks (off & on about 5 weeks) and I realized he was trying to manipulate me with his charm and was frustrated when he saw that didn’t work saying “I don’t know how to pursue a woman like you.” What he was really saying was by now I would have already slept with another woman & can’t figure out why you not falling for my tricks. Truth is, life has made me wise. I’ve seen so many things when it comes to men that I see past the flattery words. I know my worth & I value myself. Although I do desire companionship & a family I’m not willing to have a man at any cost. Men tell me all the time they’re surprised I’m single. My response is always: It’s not that I don’t have men interested in me. I’m just not interested in investing my time in those that have approached me.
We as single women have got to value ourselves enough to not grab hold of whatever comes our way. I’d rather remain uncommitted and happy then committed and stressed with the life being sucked out of me.
Until Next Time…..
