No matter how perfect a relationship may seem on the surface,there may come a time where things get a little rocky. For most, the ability to move past the bad and live a healthy life together is seamless. For others though, the rough patch could produce telltale signs your partner is manipulative.
I can speak from personal experience, as I dealt with a manipulative boyfriend in college. He would constantly lie to me and turn the tables on me when I confronted him about it. He accused me of cheating on him with every male friend I had, and would even show up to my apartment unannounced with attempts to catch me in the act. Every time he did that or made me feel bad for things that had nothing to do with me, I tried to brush it off as just me overthinking or being insecure. It got to a point where I was convinced that there was something I did to make him to act that way. Once we hit our roughest patch in the relationship though, I realized that he was manipulating me to do everything he wanted me to do and act the way he wanted me to act for his own benefit.
Although it took me a little time to realize what he was doing to me, these 11 signs can help you take notice a little sooner.
