There will be butterflies in your stomach, stolen kisses, late-night texts and talks. Then you will take the relationship to the next level.You may even find surprise flowers and chocolates delivered at your doorstep. This excitement will continue for a month, and after reaching the 'break-even point', he will say that he wants to take things slow.
This will only make you feel self-conscious and insecure.You will start believing that you do not deserve such a 'nice' guy, and wouldn't want to lose him at any cost. If you thought that only women were good at playing mind games, you are completely mistaken.He may even give you lame reasons that his great-great-grandmother expired, and he needed to be by his great-great-grandpa's side. The reasons keep on getting bizarre, so much so, that you wonder if he owns an encyclopedia on excuses.This continues for some time, before you realize that you are being taken for a ride. You must be killing yourself with thoughts like, 'has he found someone else? ', or 'has something gone wrong with our relationship? However, you need to understand that he does this, so that you will start doubting your capacity in the art of lovemaking.If your boyfriend is comparing you with any other girl, it will affect you terribly.
It will only add insult to injury, if that girl is someone close to you, like your best friend or sister.You even indulge in some compliment-fishing by stroking your hair or batting your eyelashes, but to no avail.He drops you back at your place, and leaves without saying a single word about how stunning you looked that evening. Is he constantly finding faults with your dressing, behavior, Facebook posts, etc?Then this may be a sign that he is playing the 'finding fault' mind game with you.He breaks your heart and walks away, only to appear after a few days and apologize for his behavior.
