A lot of people try to get out of manipulation. My solution for you is avoiding it.
You only know you were manipulated after you get perspective and look back. It's like being depressed. After getting out of depression, you realize how depressed you really were.
I got 3 tips for you to avoid getting manipulated.
1. Detaching yourself from the outcome.
The more you like someone, the more you want their validation. We need validation when we lack it from ourselves. That will manifest itself by you trying to find companionship.
When it comes to manipulation, the first thing you have to do is raise your standards. That will automatically detach you.
You've got to have clear boundaries that you will follow no matter how nice he is.
If you don't have it, the guy is going to make you emotional. When you like him, you will give him the benefit of the doubt. Your perception will not be cool.
Everyone else but you will see the manipulation. You have to defend yourself. The only way to do that is to have standards.
You may not choose to accept a guy who only texts you once a day or who goes silent when he gets mad at you.
If he really does go silent, don't chase him. Lose him. If you do chase him, do it through strategy. Only chase him so that you could give him a taste and then back off.
Don't chase him because you feel needy and you want to hear from him. That's how you get manipulated - when he starts seeing weakness.
Have standards, don't accept bulls*** from men, and be willing to walk away.
2. Get some perspective.
Always be meeting other men. When you get fired from a job, your employer has other applicants in line. He accepted applications, even when you were still on the job.
You should have other options. Keep your options open by having guys in the friend zone.
Also look at how his current behavior will affect the future.
3. Have a goal in mind.
Have a model of the relationship you want to have. Write it down. Write down how you want to be treated.
Think about the dynamic. Who is chasing who? What does he do for a living? What kind of friends does he have? How does he talk to your friends? What are the things that you will or will not accept in terms of your dream relationship?
Every time you meet a guy, compare him to that. Think of reasons to overcompensate for the areas that he lacks.
Think about the perfect relationship and keep looking at that in your head. Your mind will focus on that.
