Manipulation 101:

Unloved childhood → low self-esteem → attract bad relationships due to low self-worth/power → target new partners who are desperate for 'mommy/daddy' role in their life → regain lost power by acting mommy/daddy role to them → relationship purely on power
Cont'd:

system in play where one is power role, the other is 'yes man/woman' → getting own way is still not enough so seeks more manipulation and arguments → partner succumbs each time to appease them for 'easy life' → controller still senses something missing so seeks more
→ controller continually victim plays about hardship → partner takes blame and tries keeping peace in doing so → controller still wants more so plays silent treatment for attention → partner creeps around them and apologizes for something they haven't done
→ Controller feels dominant and in control, feels has won the war → partner feels happy dispute is over but low opinion of themselves as they feel they are 'wrong' → controller rinses & repeats for years and years due to no self-love.
