Eventually, I hope to find a man who treats me with respect and acknowledges that I am (or could be) an important part of his life.
Do not brush me aside, thinking that I'll be there whenever you're ready to finally act like you care, because you know what, I won't.
Do not act like you want to be with me but then treat me like a side hobby that you enjoy only when you have nothing else going on in your life.
I am important. I am valuable.
At least have the decency to tell me that you're busy before you brush me aside.
If you don't want me, I don't want you either.
