In relationships, it is common to find a girlfriend using tricks to get what she wants from her boyfriend. She will request something enormous and then follow it up with a smaller request. You will automatically choose something that you can fulfill easily. Nevertheless, the trick behind this is that you never had a chance to choose. When you are in such a situation, remember to make your decisions rationally and not based on a comparison. You should be alert for such signs since it is easy to miss them.

13. She Uses Passive Language

Your girlfriend will ignore you until you feel guilty and you try to make up to her. In the first place, you did not do anything wrong, but you will find yourself apologizing to her. Most manipulators use such tricks to get what they want from their partners. If you realize your girlfriend is ignoring you, just ignore her back. You should learn to stand your ground.

14. You Hook Up More

15. She Uses Intellectual Bullying

Intellectual bullying is one of the signs a manipulator shows. They enjoy showing their expertise on certain topics. They enjoy imposing facts which you have little knowledge of. When a manipulator assumes intellectual power over you, she hopes to convince you to agree to her terms. You will be overwhelmed with the knowledge she shares and you will be easily swayed to agree. On the other hand, she may use this technique to feel powerful. Being with a manipulative woman can be damaging to your self-esteem. Therefore, you need to pay close attention to the signs. Do not be easily swayed into the manipulators game since you will be emotionally broken. Take a stand and rely on your guts. Do not try to change a manipulator since it is a trait of character.
