Signs you're dating a manboy
Most importantly, a man wants this freedom and independence himself within the relationship, which creates a much healthier dynamic of two full people coming together to be even stronger as a unit. He plays one-upmanship games. He is always putting you through tests in the relationship. He is going to restrict your freedom as much as possible. He still believes that he lives in a world that would let him get away with anything if he tells enough lies.
He would manipulate you into doing what he wants without regard for how his actions may make you feeel. He wants you to think that you need him in your life in order for you to survive.
He wants you to believe that you are helpless and worthless. You should be with men who know how to treat you right. He always wants to try and test the limits of your love.
Or does he happily let you go have fun with your girls and plan his own thing? He is not much of a communicator.
Or can he allow you to sometimes have a starring role and stand back, clapping for your successes? He feeds off of your insecurities.
He knows that he has a lot of flaws deep down inside but he just refuses to face them head on. He avoids difficult conversations with you. One is admirable and one is something to stay away from. Of course there are passive men out there. Not every guy is naturally assertive, decisive, and comfortable being the one leading his lady.
Things will not improve with time, he will always be a boy and he is looking for a mom, not a girlfriend. All he thinks about his himself and his experiences. This should be a huge red flag. If he begs you not to use condoms or avoids the topic altogether there should be a you-shaped hole in the doorway as you run out of it.
Needless to say you will definitely want to be dating a man if you are looking for something stable, consistent, and strong. It would always be best for you to only be dating real men. So, is your guy seemingly stagnant, just wading around and not looking to improve his life, his career, when did edward and sophie begin dating or trying to eradicate and improve negative habits?
He gets threatened whenever you start having success. But a man has the wherewithal and intelligence to objectively look at himself and admit to his wrong doings. He wants to try and push you over the edge to see if you would still come back to him.
No one who is serious about another person has any reason to give vague answers to them or not explain something fully. He wants to suppress all his insecurities as much as possible. Sometimes you feel like his mom.
He would never do or say anything to lift you up or boost your confidence. You want to be with a man who is going to be able to make decisions, take actions, and be assertive in his life, not just for your union as a couple, but for himself as well. This is the language someone uses when they are emotional and hurt and trying to feel better by putting you down. In particular, emotional conflict.
