    Abusive girlfriend?

    Hi.

    I've meet this girl in the house I share with others. I started to like her for her shyness and looks very quiet and introvert. However, she knew my feelings for her, she was keeping rejecting my attempts to take her out for a date but next day she was texting me that she cooked something for me or she wanted to see a movie with me in my room making me so confused.

    One day, she came in the house with a guy, I've decided it's time to let go and move on. After about a month, they broke up and started 'hovering' me, we ended up in a club kissing and hugging all night but however, after that party waking together home, she said that she let me kiss her just because she wanted to make me happy. (?)

    Again, I've moved on, I've went in a solo trip but guess what? She texted me on my trip that she feels sorry, she was confused, she's missing me and if I can give one more chance. I gave her that chance, but been together 2 months in total, on and off, her behavior showed me that she doesn't care about me, as example she just disappear in the middle of the texts, she told me once that she doesn't want to lose me but her actions are different as afterwards she went on holiday for 10 days but didn't texted me at all those days.

    See seems tired all the time when she's with me but never when she's going out with her friends or to 'massages' at 1am. I've complained about these things, about the lack of communication, however she said I always complain. Now, she said she had read a lot of books and she wants to change, she didn't knew how to appreciate my love, my kindness, bla bla and to try again this relationship after she discarded me many times.

    What's about with this girl?

    She sounds exhausting.

    But if I am totally honest. I don't think she's that into you, she just likes the attention you give her. It's a nice source of comfort and an ego boost whenever she is lonely and/or not getting enough attention from other guys she probably also got orbiting around her. She doesn't want you, she just doesn't want to be alone.

    Edit: I forgot to add, I am not sure why you want to label this "abusive", I think people are too eager to apply labels like this and self-identify as victims these days, and it devalues the meaning of these words when they are applied to true cases of abuse. That girl might be manipulative, intentionally or subconsciously, but abusive? No, unless you have missed out big chunks of the story.

    I said that she looks abusive because I am thinking she's a kind of narcissistic person. Not sure about that

    Date women that don't live in this house as roommates. It's too messy. Ignore her and date others. Uninterested is not 'abusive'. Best to work on getting rid of the victim mentality if you think every dating scenario that doesn't pan out is 'abusive'. If you are depressed or very withdrawn some therapy may help you put things in perspective.

    Why do you put up with this?! Get off of the crazy train, and end this for good. She likes attention from you, and that's about it.

    Move on!

    She is not abusive, but you are allowing someone to treat you with a lot of disrespect. This is your fault (keep going back).

    Dismissive, self centered, selfish, possibly narcissistic, but none of those things condone being labelled as abusive.

    Honestly, I'm not sure what to think. It is possible she's telling you the truth though and realized that she didn't know how to accept the love and support you were offering due to personal issues and is wanting to work on them.

    At the end of the day, it's you who has to decide if she's been too hurtful towards you for you to want to try again or not.

    Then why would you even want to date her? She does not care about you.

    Someone who isn't as interested as you are is not "abusive" or "narcissistic ". You are trivializing true abuse victims by using that term.

    She hits you up when she's bored or wants attention. She doesn't want to lose her fan club so she does just enough to keep you coming back because it apparently works.

    End this by refusing to be her fan club. Either she dates you properly or not at all.

    She's just looking for the attention, but has no intenstion of ever being with you. Stop being a shelp and cut her off.

    She is doing what many young women do - toy with a guy who doesn't know when to walk away.

    You asked her on a date, she rejected you. Should have stopped at that. The rest is you playing yourself by buying into hope that if you do enough, if you hang around enough, put up with her bs enough, one day she'll wake up and realize your greatness. You are on a path to insanity and self destruction. Drop her like you should have done the first time she rejected you, never ever ever seek validation from someone who already indicate that they aren't into you, surround yourself with people who DO like you, are into you, are like you.

    Always remember that you cannot force people to like you or be attracted to you. However, you can always seek out people who DO simply like you off the bat. It's called finding people you click with. This goes for everything - relationships, friendships, work, business partners, etc. Seek where you fit in and you'll find success.
