So true. once I know/realize a guy doesn't even care, it becomes easier for me to move forward, I grew up w/ parents who didn't care. & I gave them (because they were my parents) too many chances to just show me they cared & loved me.
you can't make somebody "get it". effort is a reflection of interest & you can't force them to see that you're worth it. be wise enough not to waste your time, patient enough not to settle, & strong enough not to force it. whatever is meant to be will be.
