Be ready to love a girl who's been single for a long time.
I have to warn you. She's strong, she's independent, she's not needy, she's practical, she's wise, she's smart, she's brave. You can't fool her so easily. She can sense if your intention is pure. So be careful about that and if you any plans of playing her feelings, I suggest you to quit. Run! Because she's nit going to give a damn about your shitty 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 inside 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 gentleman you are but to her it's just a shallow act of kindness. She'll appreciate it but trust me, she prefer you not to do it again because for the long time she's doing those things on her own. She can carry her bag, pull her chair whenever you go for dinner dates, tie her shoes, go down the vehicle 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 the copy of your smile in her mind. She has the record of your laughter. She can recognize the sound of your footsteps. She can describe you be it through words or story in one seating. She's doing this because by the time all this little things become more meaningful to her, it will be you. It's going to be you. It's going to be you whom she's looking for in a crowd of people. Wait for the time until she'll wake up one morning and your text message is the first thing she's going to check. Wait until the time she's ready. Wait until everything gets inside her - mind and heart.
Know that falling in love to a girl who's been alone all this time is the hardest thing to do. She's strong just like that and never ever try to change her. You can tame her but never change all that she was even before you met her. 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 it of 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 it of all the love this world can offer.
