Thank you so much for your"are you dating a near emotional manipulator" read! I had been in a horrendous relationship with somebody for years eventually ending years ago then was really guarded and felt I'd possibly be like this continually. Recently I met somebody else who couldn't get enough of me the first couple of weeks telling me she loved me and really going over the top with it. I was easily manipulated by this woman but ended things right from the offset to be tricked again  back into the relationship for a further couple of weeks. Reading your article really has helped me put things in perspective and knew all along I was right about her initially thought love had found me and immediately suggested that we never lose respect for each other or go down that path ever. It's reassuring now after your read I most definitely am not going to ever be tricked this way again where I was continually having to reassure this lady and be as supportive as possible though can see clearly now, as I first did initially detect her manipulative and twisting ways, finding out she has a large family of children, possibly failed marriages and is a continual Internet dater type of person. How silly do I feel letting this person close and believing all her rubbish after years of being on my own after a painstakingly horrible relationship with my previous partner who in fact, is exactly the same as the description you describe in your article. Follow one's instincts, I will never allow this to happen to myself again and am really naive, too trusting and obviously not meeting the right type of people generally. Never had this problem ever before and attracted the right people when seen out happy and enjoying myself which unfortunately I haven't been doing so in a decade now. Really helpful read and thank you again!
