Being Strung Along. What Do I Do?

Being Strung Along. What Do I Do?

Make a conscious decision to stop this process of being strung along by this person.

This person who is stringing you along clearly doesn’t care about what you are going through mentally.

When you are dealing with someone who is stringing you along, they are often thinking more about themselves than about anyone else.

They believe they can continue misleading you in making you feel like you have a chance, as they enjoy the feeling of satisfaction they get by knowing that you like them so much.

Some people totally feed off this form of reception.

It is an enormous boost to their ego.

It helps to shroud any insecurities that they have as a person, knowing that you like them and you are game to do so much to be with them.

This caliber of person only takes and rarely gives back.

This is not a person you should stay with or place all of your romantic hopes on.

Most people in your situation who are being strung along end up hurt and mentally broken.

They often don’t end up with the person they have been doting on and desiring all this time.

After that person has had their fill of you, they spit you out and move on to the next person.

Unfortunately, you are left heartbroken and confused.

The damage to you psychologically could negatively affect how you approach relationships in the future and how you deal with romantic emotions.

This is why you should make a conscious decision today to let this person who is stringing you along go.

Just let them out of your life.

Get rid of their number.

Stop taking their phone calls.

Stop hanging around them.

You already know what they are about.

They have already shown you how callous and uncaring they are about your feelings.

They have strung you along, knowing they could.

They knew that they could exert this kind of power over you and have their way.

Your task is to take that power back.

You can do it.

Think about it this way.

No one who cares about you and wants to be with you wants to string you along.

Yes, initially, there is a game of flirting and seduction but eventually you come together.

That is how it works.

Being strung along for a lengthy period of time is an indication that this person is not serious about you and they are enjoying the kind of power and ego boost that you give them.

Once you take this away from them, well, they have nothing.

They have absolutely no idea what to do with themselves.

In time, they regret what they did and come crying back to you.

You won’t take them back, having moved on in life.

Hopefully, by the time this happens, you have since gotten into a real relationship with someone who didn’t string you along.

You owe it to yourself to let go of this person who is stringing you along.
