Dating a manipulator
Thank you for showing me what it looked like to be a manipulator.Thank you for making me realize that I can do what I want when I want.He knew how to use my weaknesses as a way to break me down even more on the inside.He knew that and he used it to his advantage, he also knew what to say when he realized that he had pushed me just a little bit too far.
Like every relationship, we had plenty of fights, but they always happened to be my fault.
Several cult leaders are known to be master manipulators in making people do things they would otherwise think twice about.
As you can imagine, emotional manipulation with a spouse or lover can be the most dangerous, considering the intimate nature of the relationship.
His moods would range from "I love you" to "I don't think I can keep making this work if you won't meet me in the middle." He was trying to control me and make me think he would leave me when in reality he wasn't going anywhere.
He knew I was the only person who would be willing to put up with his bullshit.Once we broke up, he realized that I was being serious, that I wasn't coming back, that's when he began making up reasons as to why it was his fault.
