June 10, 2013 ‐ By Julia Austin

Women are known to be the queens of manipulation. Men say we play brain tricks on them they never even perceive, or that they’re so “simple” and “straightforward.” Nuh-uh. Men have all sorts of things they’re embarrassed to say, or they know will get them in a lot of trouble. So, they’ve had to come up with their own manipulative tactics. Like these.

    Most of these are pretty obvious. You would have to be incredibly stupid to fall for these shits.

    Okay, some good points but really you could’ve summed this up with if he is subtly trying to get out of things (important to you or less important) on a regular basis, he has something up his sleeve. A man who wants to please YOU will do whatever it takes to please you, period!!!

    I don’t think it’s manipulation if the guy suggests you going to the gym with him. I thought that was a friendly way to say it? How else would you? Same goes for “you know what dress I really like?” Unless he wants you to wear something that isn’t appropriate for what you’re attending.

    Whewwww, #7 is the Truth.Com!!! I’ve experienced this personally with my 1st BF, he was up my dad’s azz always coming over and hanging out with him fixing shyte even when I wasn’t home from school yet. *smh* well that became a total turnoff for me and when we broke up my FATHER had the nerve to blame me and take up for ole boy and tried to get me to get back with him o__o .

    It’s all cool with your man being cordial with your father but when he tries to become his BMF… (bestmalefriend).. WATCH OUT!!!!

      Omg my immature college ex tried to do the same dang thing, and worse, when we were on the outs, so you know he was just trying to get in good. Few days later, I saw on my Newsfeed that him and my dad had just become Facebook friends…I LOST IT. I told that negroe if he ever wanted a chance in h*ll to get back, then he better backtrack that “friendship” real quick and in a hurry!!
