Never has there been a more fascinating time to be a woman. We are asking for and demanding equal pay. Guess what? We deserve it! Women can truly have it all now. We have amazing careers, beautiful wardrobes, and happy children all while wearing the fiercest pumps imaginable. So why are so many single and successful women falling victim to the “hook-up culture”, settling for less, and ending up on the “booty call” roster? Your booty call will not save you from being desperately single and lead you into relationship heaven. Responding to the 2 a.m text message will never give you the love and relationship you dream of!
Here are 4 reasons why you shouldn’t answer that text message!
1. Just like businesses have their hours of operations, so should your availability. Seriously, if you respond to the text message what do you plan on achieving besides a fake orgasm? Sure he’ll come over hopefully give you the best 19 minutes of his life, but then what? You’ll be late for work, may have to call in sick, or suffer from being so tired nothing will get done. You two aren’t exactly the brunch type because you really haven’t seen too much of each other during the daylight dating hours. You’re not a 24 hour convenience store, so stop acting like you can service this person anytime of the night. You want a relationship. Not just a few casual dates that lead to a booty call. When actively dating you’ll need to set and keep boundaries.

Remember having a summer job as a teen and working those ridiculous hours when all you wanted to do was go to the beach like the rest of your friends? You knew that if you did you wouldn’t be able to buy the car you wanted. Not the beat up clunker that your parents thought you should have. You worked hard and sacrificed to earn it! Remember that feeling? Well it’s the same thing when it comes to being single and dating. We truly value what we have to work for and earn! When it comes so easy to us we sometimes take it for granted or don’t notice its worth at all. Don’t forget! You want more than just a 2 a.m text message!
3. The anticipation and waiting will lead to more desire. Delayed gratification is crucial in the dating and mating game. It sounds like such a cliché, but it’s true. Good things come to those who wait. You hate to admit it to your friends, but you’ve had several one night stands. You’ve been the booty call girl countless times, so why not try something different. It’s true madness to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different outcome. Stop! Just stop! This time around we are going to wait, build up anticipation, and create a long-lasting desire. Every relationship starts somewhere. In the early stages of dating take your panties out of the equation. If he’s lucky you’ll introduce them later!
4. By slowing down and taking your time you will actually find out if you really like this person. What do you really know about this man who texts you at 2 a.m? Do you know if you’re really compatible other than your not so great sexual chemistry? Has he met your close family or friends? Does he even like having sex with you with the lights on? When you take the time to get to know someone you’ll begin to see them in a different light. Remember ladies you’re a prize! Ask questions and more questions. Get to know this man who texts you at 2 a.m!
There are times in your life where a booty call can be just what you need. You’re busy going to school, working, or trying to take over the world. I get it! Sometimes relationships that begin quickly can last almost forever, but they’re the exception to the rule. At this point in your life you want to do something different and actually follow the “Rules”. You’re worth so much more than a 2a.m. text! Don’t answer it!
