Oh, this love! When this bright feeling comes into our lives, we wear pink glasses and start living in a different world. Your partner is perfect and your relationship is too. Everything is perfect, until you start to experience a little discomfort.
What is this discomfort? This discomfort is due to the fact that your partner begins to manipulate you. Actually, this is bad news! People who like manipulation try to choose partners that can be manipulated and controlled, because they are selfish and want to do everything in their own way. Moreover, manipulators are difficult to spot, especially if you are in love with one.
Unfortunately, manipulations are everywhere, they exist at all levels of human relationships. And the earlier you discover your partner’s manipulative behavior, the faster you will save yourself from such toxic relationships, which only become worse with time.
