6 Signs He’s Taking You For Granted

No, really, if he’s doing these things, he thinks you’re an idiot and will tolerate anything as long as he apologizes.

One of the greatest truths I’ve ever heard, at least when it comes to dating, is that you will always get what you accept. If you accept a guy who treats you like dirt, that’s what you will most likely end up dating. If you refuse to accept bad behavior from the men you date and walk away after you see him be a putz to you, then you will avoid a world of pain.

As much as I hate to say it, being forgiving, caring, and understanding are weaknesses in the dating scene. The reason why is because it’s most often abusers who end up tugging on heartstrings to keep you around, and why a lot of people often end up realizing that their partners treated them so badly because they thought they’d never leave.

Believe it or not, guys know this—and if they’re scummy, will often go for girls who are forgiving and kindhearted simply because they know they will be able to get away with a lot more. This leaves women feeling broken, used, and abused.

Thankfully, most guys who are this way tend to give off clues that they think you’re a fool for being with them. This means you can figure out fairly easily whether or not it’s time to cut ties with them. Here are the biggest ones to watch for…

1. You don’t get many compliments from him. Some guys aren’t great at compliments or communicating their feelings, but if you actually can’t remember the last time he said anything nice about you, DTMF.

2. If you make him dinner once, he assumes you’re always going to make dinner for him. What other people would appreciate, he takes for granted. If anything, he gets mad at you when you don’t have time to pick him up from work while his car is in the shop, or even cook or clean. He treats favors as expectations.

3. You’re always on his schedule. You’ll meet up when he can make time for you, and it’s never the other way around. It doesn’t matter if you’re moving into a new apartment, he doesn’t show up because he’s “busy” and expects you to come see him that night.

4. You feel like you get booty called even though you’re in a relationship. Sometimes you feel like he just calls you to come over and have sex. Maybe because you only hang out at night.

5. He acts like a brat when he doesn’t get his way. The few times he actually agrees to do something he doesn’t want to do, he’s in a bad mood the entire time, to the point where it ruins the experience for you. You’ll never see a rom com with him again.

6. He pressures you to come out drinking with his friends, but is suddenly unavailable when your family is in town. He doesn’t even ask you if you’re coming to his company parties or any weddings he’s been invited to. But the second you want to meet your friend for drinks at a bar, he rolls his eyes and says “she’s not my friend.”
