She doesn't need a man; accept that or don't, she's doing just fine either way. Don't think playing games will win her over or get you anything other than blocked.
You may be cute, but you're not going to trick her. Sure, she'll get to know you. She may even allow you to bail on dates once or twice.
But the second she feels like you're losing interest or not appreciating the awesome characteristics she has to offer, she's gone.
And she won't look back.
She's too old for the midnight "let's hang out" texts but too young to just settle for someone who's less than she deserves.
She knows her own worth and is completely fine with being alone until she finds the right person.
See the difference between her and other girls is that she's mature, she's smart, and she knows what she wants.
It's nothing too complicated; as long as you put in some effort and show that you actually want to be a part of her life, she's easy to please.
But she's been hurt a lot, particularly by guys who liked to play games. She isn't going down that road again.
Some people may look at her and think she's cold hearted but that's not really the case. She's just too grown up to deal with petty nonsense.
And even though she lives in the same technological age as everyone else, she respects the sanctity of a committed relationship.
There is nothing wrong with knowing who she is and what she wants, and if you can't appreciate that she'll gladly kick you to the curb.
