One extremely dangerous form of relationship violence is manipulation. A partner with insincere intentions takes actions designed to push the victim’s boundaries, obtain their resources, and ultimately draw them into an addictive relationship. What are the signals that should trigger vigilance?
- The partner – manipulator, practically never apologizes
- Such a person constantly creates a sense of guilt in his beloved.
- In the first phase of the relationship things move very quickly, even within a month there may be a declaration of love, a proposal, and living together.
- The manipulator creates a web of lies that are not at all easy to detect. Caught telling a falsehood, he will deny it, and then using very logical arguments, turn everything to the detriment of the victim.
