The nice guy

John was early to meet his partner at her point of rendezvous at the lovely french restaurant L'assiette for a quick lunch together when he received a last-minute text from her announcing that she couldn't make it because of an urgent matter at work. At first, John was feeling abandoned and then he became angry at his partner because she didn't keep her words.

Fearing a conflict, John keeps his feelings inside, and resentment grows up. John's logic is to make his partner happy at all cost to get what he wants in return. Being loved. Maybe more sex. It's usually unconscious — an unconscious cover contract. John never shares his feelings nor his wanting. He will play the game of "I do this for you, you do this for you" to get his needs met.

People pleasing will kill your relationships, and you.
