Rant: Manipulative People

Postby rufio89 » Fri Sep 11, 2009 2:50 pm

I am SO sick of manipulative people.

I am in a mood now.

Anyone had any experience of these sorts recently?

Please share.

Yeah I know some but I tend not to let them get to me really.
What happened to you?

Is this to do with those women at work by any chance?

No no.

Stupid boys, again.


Theres a guy, Mark, who's been talking to me a lot, being really friendly, texting me a fair bit, and I've thought "right, I need some time to myself, but he's a nice guy, so maybe when I've got myself sorted out a bit, we could go for a drink or something"

Anyway, I went out last night with my friend Craig, and Mark was there (Craig and Mark know each other). Craig saw me talking to Mark and said "stay away from him Ruth, seriously, he's a player". I didnt think much of it because I thought "ah, nahh he's got the wrong end of the stick, he's a nice guy, and also it doesnt matter because im not gonna get involved".


Anyway, today I was talkin to my friend Michelle, who I know through Craig, and she said "I spoke to Craig earlier Ruth, he said you were talking to Mark last night. Seriously, STAY AWAY FROM HIM. He is a manipulative little *beep* and he WILL *beep* you over".


I said some stuff he'd said that made me think that he's a nice guy, and she stopped me mid-sentance on the last one and finished the sentance for me, and said "yep, heard those ones from him".

Basically he's the kind of guy who manipulates girls into thinking they care about them, and then sleeps with them and doesnt call them again.
I'm just glad I spoke to Michelle and Craig before anything happened, but it's more just the principle that people would DO that!I bet there's a string of poor girls trailed behind him thinking theyre special.

Cross I am lol.

Indeed!! I am SOOO glad I spoke to my friends, I was totally falling for all the BS he was coming out with!!

I was talking to him last night and he was like "I really like you Ruth, but I dont want to be the rebound guy".

LOSER.

:evil:

You should feel sorry for him really though, Rufio. People who put effort into deceiving and manipulating others have deep problems with themselves. And no matter how much of that they do, they never fill the 'hole' inside them, and have to keep on doing it. Imagine living your life that way, what a waste of time.

Do you think so Snail? Hmmm... that's interesting. I totally agree that living your life that way is a waste (and obviously wrong), but I always kinda thought they were just getting a kick out of it as opposed to having deep problems within themselves.

I dont belive manipulative people have there own issues, i belive everyone manipulates people for there own gain at some point.
i have manipulated people to get what i want, and ive been manipulated by people usually women and vise versa!!
If u like someone give it a go dont listen to advise its usually only good for passing on. I met a girl in work who i liked and other people there told her i was not to be trusted and was just up for playing her, she decided to trust me and we were together for a while and i loved her alot never once cheated or purposely hurt her, so if u think he could be worth the risk go for it. People change.

Sorry to hear he isnt what you thought he was. I know a few girls who manipulate men for some reason. Waste of time really.
Just be grateful you didnt go out with him first, however, as none of us here know the guy we can only form a judgement by what you and your friends are saying.
If you still want to go out with him its at your own discretion, but he doesnt sound much good, does he?

Thats really good way of putting it and it's reminded me I have some polos in my bag that need eating. :D
