Your emotions are attached, do you think that you can't find someone else? Do you know how many men are out there in this World?
You said:- " His manipulative tactics". You said:- "His actions are unacceptable to me". You said:- "I feel disrespected, I'd rather move on in opposite directions"
Then you added: - a question mark as well as I want explanations.
Your emotions are attached.
If a man is manipulative it means that his aim and goal is to get you and once done, is to keep you where he wants you.
If a mans actions is unacceptable, that means those actions either disgust or hurt you.
If a man makes you feel disrespected, it means you cower somewhat and feel worthless.
Manipulative, unacceptable behaviour, disrespect equals - Not worth speaking to ever again and to get out of those clutches that holds you.
Do not let a man have power over you. Be assertive.
