Everyone desires to have a relationship, companionship, or a connection with someone. People date with the intent to find a suitable partner or mate but when you get involved with a relationship phony
you are surely duped of a having a happy ending. Relationship phonies are men and women who say and do all the right things until they get what they want. These individuals are authentic scam artist (liars) who play the role and their intention is to use and abuse others until the next opportunity comes along. 

They seek people who are vulnerable and who need support and encouragement.
Relationship phonies are charmers who require lots of attention because they are
selfish, insecure and unable of having a healthy relationship. In the beginning
they seem like the perfect person but looks are deceiving. You must be watchful
not to ignore the red flags because it sheds valuable light on their plan of
deception. The goal for relationship phonies is to pretend to be in a
relationship, reap all the benefits and then end it before feelings and emotions
get too involved. Tricksters in the flesh! Their goal is to come out on top by
being in control and knowing all aspects of the game plan. They are very
secretive and will keep you in suspense, when you think you have figured them
out you have all only just begun! In reality, they need you more than you need

These individuals are damaged and have a proven track record of broken, bogus, and dishonest relationships. Relationship phonies give false hope to those that they are involved with and often tell one sided stories in order to gain sympathy. Unfortunately, everyone has been a victim of relationship scams but experience makes you wiser and stronger! When people are hurt they hurt others and the cycle continues. In order to experience true love you must love yourself first. In-addition to loving you must also be honest, open and available. Cleaning out all the toxic waste in your life is a requirement not an option in order to have a healthy relationship. Creating false and empty relationships will prevent you from moving forward and makes you comfortable in dead end situations. Stop selling yourself short! If you have been a victim of a relationship hoax know your worth and look for someone better because you deserve it! Leave the phonies alone and let them live their shallow lifestyle. Do not waste any more of your time trying to decode a relationship phony because true happiness is in your future! Time is precious so make a decision to move forward to greater possibilities. Your journey starts

This article is so true. One of the things we should all be aware of is that we need to be sure that we are emotionally healthy before entering into a relationship. Many times we get into relationships because we are lonely and not because we emotionally healthy.

Wow! Where do you get your pictures from? This one immediately caught my attention and made me want to read your article. . .
Loved your article, too. I found myself nodding my head in agreement. We must think along the same lines because I am in the throes of writing an article that is similar to this one. I'm calling it "All That Glitters, Is Not Gold!"
What a great writer you are! Keep up the good work. . .

The picture is hilarious! Great article Keisha! We've all had our share of relationship phonies. Sometimes lessons are learned the hard way and our emotions and hearts are toyed with. What makes you a strong person is learning to get past it, take it as a lesson learned, a keep moving in a positive direction. Keep up the good work!

Communicate your views honestly and remember what peace there may be in silence. Avoid aggressive persons that are bitter with their situations in life. Enjoy your achievements as well as your future plans.
