Insecure men are very manipulative. They are well skilled in mind games. If you are feeling like your man is playing mind games in your relationship, you are right. Understanding the various kinds of mind games will make it simpler in spotting them. If your man is doing any of the below games, run for your life! Your relationship is already sinking.
They always blame you
Words hurt. They may affect you just like any physical abuse and do not allow anyone to tell you otherwise. If he accuses you over nothing and always blames you over something, it is due to the fact that he is committing the same thing himself. He does not want to face his mistakes.
When this occurs, you should get out of the relationship completely since it’s not right to shift the blame with someone like that. The fact is, emotionally insecure men do not like being told they are wrong. This is because according to them they are always right. You could best find consolation from your friends. Do not allow him to corner and attack you.
Emotional roller coaster
We have all gone to a romantic, nice and magical dinner or spent moments together where you feel everything is fine. You have enjoyed your guy’s company, and to you, that was the best date you have ever had.
However, in the daylight, you realize his behavior has changed. He has magically changed into a heartless, barbaric creature.
When this occurs, it is best to talk to your man. Find out if there is a legit reason for his behavior. In case there is no issue, and he denies his rude behavior, go forward and make it clear that you will not tolerate his juvenile mind games. If he opens up and tells you what the issue is, your relationship still has a shot.
They shame you
If your man uses dark humor and offensive jokes to laugh at you, then they are probably doing it because they have hidden insecurities. Emotionally insecure men have a fraught need to hide their feelings. There is a high chance that they are not satisfied with their lives. They are likely miserable.
Therefore, naturally, the ideal way to hide their insecurities and boost their ego is to shame you in front of other people. If your man is always shaming you, you deserve better than that.
Bait and switch
This occurs when you are in an argument and he switches things to appear like it’s your mistake. He does everything in his power to ensure you feel guilty for doing nothing bad at all. Through doing this he manipulates to giving in and doing what he wants you to do for him.
Goes ghost on you
An unavailable and insecure man will tell how he really adores you and in a jiffy, he turns into a something else that you have never seen. He disappears into thin air, and he ghosts on you then later comes back like it didn’t happen. If you are in such a scenario, have the courage and face him. Don’t be afraid to speak up.
