Nothing is complicated, it’s just that he doesn’t care enough about you

When a man cares about you, he acts like it. He will have no problem committing to you or giving your relationship a name.

He won’t have a problem being clear about his feelings and he’ll make sure to show them to you one way or another.

When a man loves you, he loves you in a way that you know it.

He makes sure you know you can always count on him, he works hard to earn your trust and he does everything in his power to show you that he is a reliable, mature man worthy of you.

When a man cares about you, he tries hard. He strives to prove his love and he does his best to make your relationship work.

He fights with all his might to make it work and he doesn’t even think about abandoning you.

When a man loves you, he puts you first and gives you the place you deserve in his life.

He’s never too busy to see or listen to you, his friends are never more important than you, and he would never choose the single life over being with you.

He never makes you doubt his loyalty or fidelity and he would never choose temporary affairs over long-term love.

When a man cares about you, he is steady about it. He doesn’t change his mind every day and he never makes you doubt his feelings.

He doesn’t make you doubt his intentions and you are always sure of his love.

There is no drama, no hidden meaning behind his words, no mixed signals and no mind games.

He doesn’t have an air of mystery, he doesn’t make you chase him, and he isn’t emotionally unavailable.

I know you don’t want to hear any of this. And that you would like to find an excuse for your boyfriend’s behavior.

However, I also know that deep down you know the truth very well.

Deep down, you know that things between the two of you aren’t complicated at all – and that he’s just an asshole who leads you on and doesn’t love you enough.

Deep down, you know that it’s not the wrong time and that he doesn’t need you to be patient for him to come to his senses.

You know damn well he’s lying when he says he’s not good enough for you and when he says the only reason he doesn’t want to make things official is so you can find someone better.

When he promises that he will change and things will be different in no time.

You know he only calls you when he needs you, not because you’re the only one he trusts, but because you’re the only one who hasn’t turned her back on him.

That his late night drunk texts are actually nothing more than a hookup, even if you always tell yourself that they are a sign of his hidden love for you.

More important again, you know you deserve better and more than that.

You know this relationship will never become a real relationship, you know this guy is an asshole who will never give you what you need, and you know things will continue like this for as long as you let them.

You know very well that this man will continue to leave you when he gets tired of you and will come back every time he realizes that no one will ever love him like you.

That he will never come to his senses and that he will never be the one to end things.

You know you will be trapped in this toxic, never-ending relationship until you regain your strength, look the truth directly in the eye, and turn your back on it.

That you have to be the one to walk away if you want to be able to move on.

You know very well that you did your best and did everything possible to make things work out between the two of you.

You know there’s no point in saving your poor ass and for a change it’s time you started saving yourself.

Nothing is complicated, it's just that he doesn't care enough about you
