Crying: Some partners resort to crying whenever there is a difference of opinion or a fight.

Gaslighting: Some partners constantly imply that you're wrong with every decision, opinion, or choice you make.

Home court advantage: As human beings, we find comfort in the familiar, in our own routines.

Silent treatment: More often than not, a manipulating partner will be very petty. They’ll intentionally not respond to your calls, text messages, emails, or other methods of communication.

Guilt trip: Manipulators are masters at leveraging your guilt to their advantage. If you bring up something that's bothering you, they make you feel guilty for mentioning it.

Isolation: Often manipulative people will try to isolate their partner from their support system.

Snarky comments: If your partner is making derogatory comments or backhanded compliments, they’re likely trying to cut down your self-esteem.

You are made to feel responsible for their emotions: Manipulators are ironic in the sense that they spend quite a bit of time making you feel as if you can’t think for yourself.

They are too much, too soon: Whether it’s personal or a business relationship, emotional manipulators always seem to skip a few steps.

They are dismissive of your feelings: A healthy relationship is where you are comfortable sharing your concerns with your partner who listens to them and addresses them. They don’t dismiss your feelings or deny what happened.

They never apologize: When you express the fact that you are hurt by your partner’s actions, instead of apologizing or addressing it, they tell you how to feel about it.

Victim card: Who wouldn’t feel pity for a poor little kitty? That’s how manipulators want you to see them.

Their actions don't match their words: Emotional manipulators will tell you what you want to hear, but their actions are another story.
