I was thinking about my last few relationships and I have realized that my biggest problems with them have been when I am outright and truthful with whatever my intentions are and they will constantly try to find ulterior motives that aren't there. Example: I asked my ex to help me clean my room since I had helped her 50,000 times in the past, and she was throwing out ideas that I was trying to get her to submit to me or something. I mean, that's a little bit of an extreme example, but there are smaller more annoying things that have happened. Things like when you say something a certain way, they'll try to figure out what exactly it is that you REALLY meant. Or something like that. Anyway, anybody got any tips on how to deal with this?
