He Never Compliments Me

You are unknowingly playing the game with him because you want to hear from him more, you want to see his gorgeous smile that he seldom shows, you want him to say kind words to you and you want to be acknowledged and the more he deprives you of these things the more you want them from him. As a self-respecting woman you need to ask yourself if you like him enough to put up with this, is getting a compliment worth going through all of this drama? The part that really sucks about all of this though is that a lot of men out there that use this method are more interested in the method that the woman, if they do end up dating you they will control you emotionally and know how to manipulate you, is being that vulnerable to someone worth it?
