Today, somebody told me that she feels that I am manipulating her.
“I don’t know if it is me thinking too much, but I have a feeling that I am being manipulated (by you).”
Now, this is quite a scary phrase to hear from your colleague at work.
I actually have absolutely no idea what she meant because I have never been gifted in manipulating others to get what I want. If I’m so good at that, I think I’d have achieved much more right now.
I just told her at the end…
“If I’m so good at manipulating people, I wouldn’t suck so bad at dating. It is precisely because I am too direct in expressing my wants and fail in being subtle to get what I want that I suck at dating. So trust me, there’s nothing I want that you don’t already know.”
