  1. Interesting. I hate to admit it but I’ve been doing this. Not intentionally, but intentionally. It doesn’t just apply to dating. This person doesn’t have many, if any friends in the area and she “latched” on to me when I first moved here. We have very little in common and she’s always putting me down or overriding what I say in small but significant ways. I feel sorry for her so I have that once a month lunch with her, but I was just thinking this morning, that perhaps I need to let her know. I hold back because I feel like she looks forward to these meetings. In a way, I may even worry that she could be vindictive, but probably not.
    Do you think that could be why people do it that way? Perhaps they have this sense that someone could become quite volatile if they are straightforward and it’s a good question to ask yourself if someone is doing that to you?

    1. I’ve done it and I’ve had it done to me. Normally I curve because I’m really busy with work. Generally we curve people that demand too much attention, it’s a way of pacing the relationship.
