- You flaunt how amazing your life is on social media.
You have a beautiful life – and you want him to know about how amazing your experience is even when you’re not with him. And so you don’t hesitate to post about the fancy things that you buy for yourself or the beautiful places that you travel to on your own.
- You don’t respond to his text messages right away.
You deliberately don’t reply to him right away so that you give him the impression that you’re a busy gal. You don’t want to be giving him all of your time. You don’t want him to think that you’ve been waiting around for his text.
- You deliberately withhold affection with him.
You don’t want to be giving him everything that you have, especially when he hasn’t done anything to earn it yet. You want him to work for whatever affection that you give him. So even if you’re craving to provide him with your love, you refrain from doing so.
- You cry on purpose to see how he would handle it.
You can tell a lot about a man based on how he handles a situation with a crying girl. It’s a great test of character for him.
- You test him to see where his ego lies.
You feed him compliments about various aspects of his life to see where his ego lies. You don’t know if he’s egotistical about his looks, his intellect, or his achievements. And you want to find out by feeding him compliments in these areas.
- You give him the silent treatment to test how he would react.
You can say so many things by saying nothing at all – and not many guys can understand that. And you want to make sure that he does.
- You feign helplessness so that he can come and help you out.
You don’t need his help – but you want to see how far he’s willing to go to help you. And so you will feign a little helplessness to test him out. You want to know if he’s got your back. You want to see if he’s someone you can rely on to be there for you.
- You tell him that “you’re fine” without any follow-up.
You want to know if he’s the kind of guy who knows how to read between the lines. Of course, you wouldn’t want to end up with a dense guy who can’t go deep with you.
- You give him affection out of the blue.
If you employ the “withhold affection” manipulation technique on him, then this is a great follow-up. You give him affection out of the blue and see what he’s going to be so thankful for it. And he’s going to treat you so much better than usual because of it.
- You flirt with other men in front of him.
You don’t want him to think that he has you locked down. You don’t want him to feel that he has you in his pocket. And so you flirt with other guys to make him believe that he has to work for your love and attention continually.
- You rehash old arguments to start up some drama.
Sometimes, when things are getting a little boring in a relationship, you might try to stir up some drama just for the fun of it. It’s your way of keeping things interesting. You don’t want to be making things too easy for him.
