signs to recognize a possessive and manipulative woman
When we talk about possessiveness in love, we often think of women. On the other hand, when it comes to manipulation, there is often a tendency to associate it with men. And yet, it is obvious that possession and manipulation can be, in love, the fact of both without distinctions of gender.
