10 Ways To Deal With Him If He Treats You Like An Option!

By- Shreya Sharma

No girl is here to be treated as an option. We are born to be on top and to be on priority and not lying somewhere in between someone’s priority list just because we love them. You love them, great but this should not mean that you should be ok being an option. You are strong and confident and that is what should speak volumes about you. There will always be guys in your life who will never understand how they should be amazed and happy to be a part of your life. You need not to be with any guy who treats you like an option and not priority. Instead you should be his only choice. Here are 10 ways to deal with him if he treats you like an option.

  1. Trust your instinct

He may give you excuses or you may yourself think like you are expecting too much or just being too sensitive but do not be a fool. You deserve to be treated well. If a guy likes you, making you his priority and managing his time for you will come naturally and he will not have to make it as a sacrifice.

  1. Keep your options open

Of course!! Why should boys have all the fun? Explore your options, go on date, and find love. Do not wait for this guy to change his mind. He might realize that he was all wrong and will wish to come back to you but this is a mere possibility, so why to hamper your life!

  1. Closure is not that necessary

There are chances that the guy you thought is the right one for you and you opened up your feelings might get terrified of what you think about him and his behavior and may never look back. Do not expect a closure because it might not happen and you even do not need it from a person who gets terrified of your feelings.

  1. Give him an ultimatum

You need to take a stand for yourself and this is the best thing you can do in this situation. Give him an ultimatum to act like a boyfriend with you else you are not interested.


  1. Be stern with your terms

You can choose between settling on same terms or to follow his tunes. You dare not settle down to his terms. Date him on the terms that are agreeable to you both. Be strong and firm enough to demand better treatment.

  1. Put him on the back seat

Do not make him the center of your life and stop thinking about him as your next boyfriend. Start the process of forgetting him and you will be better in the long run.

  1. The worst is yet to come

When you give him the ultimatum that you will leave him or ignore him if he stays this way, he can opt for two options then he will either ignore you or say that he cannot commit. Be mentally prepared for this and understand that you are strong enough to deal with it.

  1. Ghost

If he is being immature and does not have any idea about how you are feeling, you are free to ghost.  He does not respect you and does not treats you well, so you need not to be nice to him anymore.

  1. Learn from it

You need to take lesson from this experience of your life. Keep in mind how bad you felt the times he treated you like an option and now you know you will never wish to be treated that same way again.

  1. Move on and do not look back

Do not look back. There is no benefit of thinking of how things were and if you have had acting in some other manner. You need to be strong. You do not need someone who treats you less than what you deserve.
