Be ready to love a girl who's been single for a long time.
I have to warn you. She's strong, independent. She is not needy. She's practical, wise, smart, brave. You can't fool her so easily. She can sense if your intention is pure. So be careful about that. If you have any plans of playing with her feelings, I suggest you to quit, run. She won't care about your foolish plans.
Be ready to love a girl who's been single for a long time because it's like you're taming a wild beast.
Your flowery words will not easily get through her. She'll smile when you say those cheesy lines but she's not going to let it stay in her mind. You can show how chivalrous and how much of gentleman you are but to her, those are just shallow acts of kindness. She'll appreciate them but trust me, she prefers you don't do them again because for the longest time, she's doing those things on her own. She can carry her bag, pull her own chair whenever you go on dinner dates, tie her shoes, go down the car without your hands waiting to take hers so she can go down safe.
Although she's like that, keep in mind that she values all the little things you're doing for her. She has your smile in her mind. She knows the sound of your laughter. She can recognize the sound of your footsteps. She can describe you through words or stories in one seating. She's doing this because by the time all these little things become more meaningful to her, it will be you. It's going to be you.
It's going to be you she'll look for in a crowd. Wait for that time until she'll wake up one morning and your text message is the first thing she wants to read.
Wait until the time she's ready. Wait until everything gets inside her—mind and heart.
Know that falling in love with a girl who's been alone all this time is the hardest thing to do. She's strong and never, ever try to change her. You can tame her but never change who she was before she met you. No matter how hard she is to handle, no matter how long it is before you can break all the walls that she built, it will be worth it. She's worth your time and effort, so never give up. Pay attention to whatever she's doing and saying because through this you will know that she's precious, genuine, and worth all the love this world can offer.
