It is no secret that women have an array manipulation techniques at their disposal. Throughout human history, females have been using them to control male behavior. Of course, their intentions are not always malicious – your woman may just try to nudge you in the right direction. Do not be fooled by an innocent face and a sweet smile. A girl may seem honest at the beginning of your relationship and reveal her full potential later on. Do you want to be twisted around her finger? Here are five red flags to look out for.
All males must have faced this number-one manipulation trick at least once in their lives. A woman may cry when she is badly hurt, but she may also be pulling a pretense. Think about that cliché situation when a crying lady gets out of a speeding ticket. This works as tears make men feel uncomfortable, and it speaks to his primal instinct of a protector to the weaker sex. Crying conveys submission and defeat. Men will do anything to stop it.
Yes, ladies may sleep with you in order to make you do their bidding. Here, nothing has changed since the dawn of mankind. Sex and promise of sex is a powerful motivator for males. If she doesn’t feel like doing some chore, she may just wear a tight outfit with plenty of cleavages and say she wants to relax. You will probably rush to accomplish the mission.
3. Pretending to be helpless
This boost the man’s ego, as it makes him feel needed. It is natural for men to help their lovers, but women may act as damsels in distress to get what she wants. She might be absolutely capable of fixing the door or taking out the trash by herself. The man feels like he is her knight in shining armor coming to the rescue. What could be more gratifying?
4. Too many compliments
Nagging is annoying. Although it will work – you will agree to anything to stop that irritation – there is a better tool. If it takes you ages to finally do what she asks, she may try to reinforce that behavior by showering you with kind words. Why? It will build up your ego, and you will probably repeat the action later on. In fact, males love being complimented no less than females.
5. The cold shoulder
Everybody knows those memes with distressed girls saying “I’m fine” when the meaning is clearly opposite. It is an obvious technique, but it still works at times. Usually, it helps to prevent men from doing something undesirable. The “I’m fine” line may precede a few days of ignoring your messages and calls. Gentlemen do not like it when ladies stop talking to them, and they will try to remedy the situation.
