“He that flatters you more than you desire either has deceived you or wishes to deceive.” – Italian Proverb
When your partner truly appreciates you, it will come across when they say even the simplest things. It doesn’t necessarily have to be compliments or a romantic phrases. When someone loves you and they are genuine, you will know it from their touch, they way they look at you and speak to you. Granted they may be really good at giving you compliments and truly mean them but when the flattery goes overboard, you need to take notice.
Just because your partner is devoted to you or idolises you or says exactly what you want to hear does not mean they are right for you. It does not mean this is a healthy and lasting relationship. A true partner will tell you where you are going wrong as much as what they like about you. They will appreciate your flaws as much as your uniqueness. They will know how to make you feel loved without using chosen words to influence your thoughts and emotions all the time.
“Flattery is like friendship in show, but not in fruit.” – Socrates
Pay attention to what they say, how they say and the real message hidden inside those compliments you love to hear.
Stay alert and watch out for the red flags in front of you.
