Her Self-Respect 

Mr. Loverboy started making excuses when it came
time for a serious commitment, and Miss Lovergirl
didn’t let his tricks bother her interior;
in the beginning, he stayed away too long
and apologized too often. Still, she could tell
it was never sincere; he got distracted, continuously
sending mixed messages; meanwhile, she always
made her intentions clear. Loverboy wanted to have
it all without lifting a finger. Lovergirl finally realized
he was wasting her time; he won’t change, at least
not for her; she walked away without looking back;
he was already seeing someone else,
and she valued her worth.
