The hardest thing you will ever have to learn is that mixed signals do mean that he cares — but not enough. Not enough to give you what you deserve.
You’ll never get all of him, because he’s only willing to give you scattered pieces of himself. He doesn’t want to reveal too much, because that would signal something serious, and he’s not ready for that. He only wants you around for an ego boost. For some temporary happiness.
But that’s okay. You don’t need to keep guessing how someone feels. You don’t need to keep interpreting the texts that pop onto your phone. You don’t need to keep questioning where you stand.
You deserve someone that doesn’t make you wonder. Someone that makes their feelings for you obvious by paying attention to you and putting in effort and admitting that they want to be with you.
You deserve someone that has nothing to hide. Someone that will look you in the eyes and ask you on a date. Not someone that gives you a last second invite to hang out at their apartment. Not someone that asks you to dinner and then cancels on you. You deserve someone that takes you on an actual, authentic date where you swap childhood stories and kiss on the sidewalk, as cliche as it sounds.
And you shouldn’t have to wonder what that kiss means. Or what a text means. Or even what sex means. You should have your answers, because he should give them to you without restraint, without hesitation.
He should let you know how he feels, always, without falling into the pit of playing games.
So quit questioning what his mixed signals mean, because in reality, they mean nothing. They mean you should move on.
