In one of our many over-analysing conversations a friend of mine said "You only get what you expect" and I think she may have a point.
If I think back, after learning I was never going to get what I wanted from the Lobster I regretfully and now embarrassingly accepted his behaviour as normal, therefore not expecting much thus not receiving much.
It's a mad old theory, but I think there may be method in the madness.
If you don't expect him to text back he probably wont.
If you don't expect him to take you out and treat you with respect he probably wont.
If you don't expect much he will give you as little as possible.
So expect the world and if he refuses to give you this... Walk away.
You may be left disappointed but at least you'll have your dignity.
Know your worth and don't let anyone treat you less.
