Excellent points. Love-Bombing is an amazing experience. Hard to resist. Feels very real.
Abusive men are another group who emotionally manipulate using love-bombing.
They will begin to check your level of compliance. They will insist you follow simple rules in the beginning. Silly ones that seem like no big deal. Later on the rules change and increase in the cost of your wellbeing.
They use subtle emotional strategies such as emotional withdrawal to remind you that you need them more than they need you.
All in hopes to maintain the upper hand. Vile behavior.
