    "We're All Puppets. I'm Just a Puppet That Can See the Strings."

    I often wonder why people can't see the strings that control them.  I don't wake up in the morning and think of how I can manipulate people so that my life is what I want it to be.  I do tend to get what I want.  I am in the process of trying to figure out why...

    Only To Help My Self, Never To Harm Their Self.

    I manipulate other people, influencing their opinions and choices on a very regular basis. It's become part of my life by now; a habit as iron cast as eating or smoking. I never do this to further any evil motive though. Only to achieve positive a outcome. this talent is just a...

    I Never Intend For It to Turn Out This Way...

    But on some level, I know what I'm doing.  I have denied for years that I was manipulative, but today alone showed me just *how* manipulative I can really be.  Choosing which facts to display and when, which arguments to bring up and when to show my weaknesses...

    I don't do it on purpose.

    ...I'm really sorry for it too. I won't even realize that I'm doing it.

    Manipulation Is Bad

    I think we all have manipulated people, the problem with doing so is we never form the honest deeper connections with people. When you are an island no matter what you have life sucks.

    Friendly Manipulation

    My hobby is manipulating people for good, not evil.  People who are too stupid, ignorant or scared to do what is right for themselves.  Those that, wonderful, intelligent people they may be, are just too indecisive or irrational to listen to fact, reason or common...

    Oh Yes

    This is how I got my TV with a HUGE screen. Also how I got my portable computer, my fridge and my couch! It's easy because a lot of men desired me and got blinded by love. Since I'm really poor, this help more than anything. Like free diner and supper because I ''forgot...

    It's one of those skills

    that you aren't proud of or might be but don't show it. Manipulation comes natural to me and I've gotten much better at it through constant use. My grandiose plans always work my way and I get people to do what I want. I don't know how or why, but I know I have this skill and...

    I manipulate everyone in my life.

    I don't have a set personality, or a moral compass, just an inner indecisiveness. I use this identity crisis as a way to manipulate every person in my life for my own personal gain. I lie to be someone else for each different person I meet, and I seem to see through everyone...

    My castle moved to the sand.

    I've been "manipulating" people for decades. I see what I believe to be the best possible outcome, and I push all of the person's buttons that I can see until they go towards it. Then I let them set sail. Some could say that's like a preacher or priest giving advice. Some...

    Not Ashamed

    It is too late to try to pretend otherwise. I never claimed to be a saint and at least I can admit that I manipulate people. Manipulation is an art and I happen to be good at it. Even more so, I enjoy it. Should I really be so ashamed? I refuse to feel guilty because I play my...

    I Do It With My Teachers

    I make "friends" with my teachers just so I can manipulate them. I make it look like I'm actually friends with them, but I'm not. It's purely academic. The advantages: 1) They like me and will sometimes give me higher grades than I deserve because of it. (My english teacher gave...

    I Don't Manipulate Out of Malice

    I want you to talk about that, or to do that, to feel that or think that. I won't blackmail you, but I will send the right hints and do the right thing, and next thing you know you're doing what I want. I do it on purpose. What can I say, I like to be in control... I don't know...

    My Friends Are Just For That

    Really, they have not use for me if I can't make them do all I want. That's so funny, like having puppies in collar. Same about my parents. Same about those disgusting old men who think they can have my phone number for free.

    I enjoy manipulating woman

    as long as she enjoys being manipulated and is a willing participant. It can be a fun way of playing. I think their should be a kink that's called "Consensual Manipulation."
