Read the first of the top ten ways on how to manipulate men before reading these five pointers on manipulating men to do your bidding.
#6 “Fine! I’ll do it on my own!”
Emotional blackmail. Guys can’t stand it, but they also can’t do anything about it.
So the next time he says he won’t come shopping with you, don’t fly off into a fit of fuming rage.
Just manipulate his mind and say, “Fine, I’ll go alone, because none of my other friends are free. If they were free, I wouldn’t have asked you anyways. It may be a little late in the evening, but then, that’s okay. It’s not like the city is not safe for girls to travel alone.”
Oh, and don’t forget to wear your best martyr expression, and make sure it’s wee bit hurt, wee bit let down.
#5 Get his mom on your side
Now, all the monster-in-law theories apart, the pluses of getting his mom on your side are just way too many to be ignored, especially when it comes to women manipulating men.
When the two most important women in his life are in it together, there is little that a guy can offer in terms of resistance.
Most guys, even the ones who are not mamma’s boys, still think twice before messing with their mum. So go ahead, be real nice to the in-laws. [Read: Tips to impress your man’s parents on the very first meeting]
#4 Foodie manipulation
They were not kidding when they said that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. If there is something you really really want him to do, but you know he’ll refuse straight away, cook him a nice fancy dinner, light a few candles, and then ask when he’s in gastronomic heaven.

It will be one tough thing for him to say no, and he won’t. Not unless his life depends on it!
#3 Blame it on biology!
Now, one of the best things about being a woman is that you can yell at him, act all pricey, irritated, and peevish, and blame it all on PMS when you get caught trying to manipulate men. Guys can’t contradict it, because they don’t understand it. And you thought nature was being unfair! Sometimes, it is unfair in your favor!
#2 Shed a tear
The age old, time tested weapon. A girl’s best friend in all messy situations and manipulative situations. He’s yelling at you at the top of his voice. And you know, this time it really is your fault. But you also know that saying sorry won’t shut him up.
So wring out a tear or two, and most guys will stop. When a guy sees a girl cry, usually his thought process goes, “Crap! Crap! She’s crying, oh my God! What do I do? What do I do???”
Most guys don’t really know what to do with a crying woman. And their first priority in such a case is to make her stop. More so, if she’s crying because of something that they’ve said. Even if they still think they are right, they will shut up. And they will be careful the next time they broach the topic.
#1 Seduce him!
Why waste time talking about all the stupid things that you always talk about, especially things like his depleting bank account and overdue credit card bills. Just tell him you want him, and you want him right now! Men are far more agreeable after a good romp. God, we girls can get wicked! [Read: Sexy tips to be a super seductress]
So go ahead! Give it a shot. But remember, moderation, as always, is the key while manipulating men. The trick is never to let him realize what you really are up to. So if you keep wearing that hurt expression every time he refuses to come shopping with you, one day, he might just call your bluff and know that he’s just being manipulated into doing things for you.
