say for instance a guy that has been used and been in manipulative relationships?
Most Helpful Girl
Just be yourself. I've been lucky though. Every guy I've been with have said that I'm special and something different and even wife material. That's just from being myself! My boyfriend last night said that he loved that I didn't act like someone else, just to try to impress him. So I think being yourself is all you can do and try to avoid being manipulative, paranoid, jealous and just a bad girlfriend in general. Show them that nice, good girlfriends do exist and that's all you need to do. :)
Also, finding out about why he broke up with his ex may help you see what he dislikes in a girl so you can avoid doing it yourself.1
