Why do some women lie about their feelings towards a man, when they are by NO means forced into expressing these 'false' feelings??? ...as a matter of fact, it is often they who 'push' the man into a deeper relationship, even if he might want to 'take it slowly', one step at a time. Why do they take the relationship to the point where the man falls totally in love the woman & is lead to believe that the woman loves him as much, if not even much more???...most of the times going to the 'extremes' of saying things to him such as:"You are wonderful, the best ever (in all senses), i could never imagine living without you! etc etc..." What happens next?...the moment they feel it's OK for them, they totally change their minds & just turn a very cold shoulder on him & 'run off' with another man...not even giving much or any plausible explanation to him ...leaving him totally in the dark as to why they left him! At this stage i could probably better understand a wife or very long-time partner doing this to her man...probably due excuses or facts such as: being in the same old routine, boredom, neglect etc, etc... .....but the cases i'm most curious about are those where everything seems to be going perfectly, where the passion at it's peak and so on (just to cut it short)... Yes, this has happened to me in my four last relationships & to at least two of my good friends...but i can only talk about my own experiences not theirs, tho' they were very similar... Where did i go wrong? Am i a complete naive idiot? Is it my fault? Is it theirs? Have i been used? Did they need me to temporarily lean on till they got their act together? Will it happen yet another time? Etc, Etc? Pheww...a bit scary, don't you think? (4 times in a row) & just to conclude three of these have come back later, saying:"Hey you were a good man to me, can we remain friends?" What should i think? What should i answer? Yes, No, Maybe??? I would love anybody here, both male & female, to enlighten me on these 'enigmas' b/c that's what they are to me! Also if anyone has had a similar experience, please partake in this thread! If you have any queries, such as, further insight into the relationships, i will gladly explain myself as best as i can, as we go along. Thank you for your patience...looking forward to your participation.
