“Why you were failing on autopilot, is that you were conflicted and dishonest. You didn’t know who you were. You were coasting, attracting a mixed bag of men into your life that netted you mixed results. Be honest and declare what you want. Why is it so hard for typical women to admit that they want a man? Why would a grown woman pretend as if she’s happy with being single when she’s really miserable alone? Because if they hide behind the excuse of not being ready or the apathy of ‘if it happens it happens,’ it gives them an easy out when they fail. Losers love to act indifferent because they’re already mentally preparing themselves not to come away with what they really want.”
