taking advantage of someone

It makes me so angry when people take advantage of those who are generous, sympathetic, patient, and kind. I worry that, if such people are taken advantage of too much, they’ll ditch those wonderful qualities and just become bitter and cold. People who are generous, sympathetic, and kind deserve partners (and friends) who are equally so—not leeches who just want to drain the life out of them. But, I have to remember that, we’re all adults here and nobody forces the generous, sympathetic type to date or befriend anyone. Part of growing up is setting boundaries so you can still be the sweet, giving person without getting stomped all over. Sometimes, it takes that first person who really takes advantage of you to learn to create those boundaries. Here are signs he’s totally taking advantage of you.


He asked to move in fast

He asked to move in together very quickly. You felt like it was fast, and you knew it was risky, but, you were just so flattered that he was apparently so into you that you said yes. He didn’t, however, suggest you two find a new place together. He just asked to move into your place.
