  1. Eh, I can only somewhat agree with that, because insecure people don’t all act one way like a flock of birds flying in unison. How an insecure person reacts to their insecurity really depends on the person. “You’re too good for me,” could have a number of different meanings to the person saying it. One could be just as said in this quote, that the person will need to find fault in order to bring you down to a certain level. Another could be that the person will feel the need to push you away for your own good, because you should find someone who deserves you. Another could be that the person will feel the need to worship you, which may or may not be a bad thing, depending on how annoyed you get being the subject of worship. Another could be that he’s going to use you as motivation to try to become the person you deserve.

    Or it could just be a harmless, casual compliment that shouldn’t be taken at face value and should simply be responded with an equally casual, “I know. Now do the dishes.”

    My point is that if you get yourself into attempting to read a person simply by what they say, you’re likely to lead your mind around many wrong turns, especially if, like me, you consider as many possibilities as you can. Asking, “What did this person mean by that?” can be dizzying and end up as an exercise in confusing oneself. That’s why I don’t really look at words for red flags, but actions. And I’ll give you a great example: Fifty Shades Of Grey. When I saw that movie, I could hear Christian saying a number of right things, but his actions were all red flaggy. I mean, it got so ridiculous that I so wanted to jump into the movie and say to Ana, “Sweetie, I don’t care how much money he has, you shouldn’t be signing his contract, you should be signing a restraining order.”

    Remember, what people say and what they do can be two different things. A guy can say, “You are amazing. I am so grateful to have you,” but if he’s cheating on you, he really doesn’t mean that and he certainly doesn’t recognize your worth. Communication isn’t all about the words that come out of your mouth.

    Anyway, that’s just my opinion. 🙂
