If you’re dating a player, it can be a tough and discouraging situation, especially if he/she is your twin flame.
You’ll find yourself both fascinated by the game and frustrated by the pain of being set up.
Sounds confusing, right? But there is a way around it.
If your twin flame is a player, then there are several tips that you should keep in mind.
This post has 11 important tips that you should follow if your twin flame treats relationships as disposable.
1) Stay grounded
Sometimes, when you’re involved with a player there is the temptation to go along with the ride and be swept off your feet.
The problem comes when the ride ends quickly.
But remember that your life is apart from the player’s game, so do not allow yourself to be sucked into the drama.
You need to stay grounded and understand that things that are seemingly magical cannot last forever. Lasting positive change does not occur overnight.
Being grounded means that you should maintain your focus on living a purposeful life and not get side-tracked by all of the glamour of superficial relationships.
Any deep feelings of love you’re feeling can easily be replaced by feelings of fear and anger, so stay grounded and detached until you find out his/her long-term intentions.
You also have to remember that no matter how wonderful he or she seems, it’s a game and an illusion.
You have to keep your feet on the ground and understand that you have to deal with your twin flame in all of his/her reality.
If you lose sight of this, you may also put yourself in a more vulnerable position than necessary.
2) Stay engaged
Let’s face it. A relationship needs work, most especially if your twin flame is a player.
The main reason players avoid the commitment and intimacy stage of relationships is that they lose their sense of identity and purpose.
When you’re involved with them, you can lose yourself in the game for a short period. But you have to remember that there is a difference between being in partnership and being obsessed.
Your goals become unsustainable when you become so deeply involved with your twin flame’s life that it will not work unless he/she is playing on the same field as you.
To solve this problem, you should work on keeping your feelings in check and seeking out the best of what you can from the relationship.
You need to stay engaged with your twin flame to ensure that the relationship does not fade away.
Of course, that does not mean that you have to always agree with everything they do. You also need to show them respect for their autonomy and personal freedom.
Doing so may prompt them to take responsibility for themselves by taking steps that will allow them to be more present in your life.
If you want to stay with your player twin flame, then you need to put in the effort.
3) Don’t get triggered.
This tip is a test of patience.
Players often use emotional responses as a means to control you. For example, they may say something that hurts you in a very gross way and you become angry because it is hurtful.
They then use that anger as a means of manipulation and control.
You might feel the urge to retaliate in some way but try to resist your feelings and stay focused on what matters most.
But you need to remember that your twin flame’s manipulation has nothing to do with you. It’s them playing a game and it is not your responsibility to fix the problem.
Your job as a good partner is simply to love them, accept their flaws and stay cool in situations that make you feel the need to react.
Remember that there are forces at play in relationships that can lead to self-deception, so you should remain grounded and focused on your goals.
A word of advice – if you find yourself emotionally drained and you felt like you are not respected anymore, then it will be best to reevaluate if you are in the right relationship.
4) Take care of yourself
To stay grounded, you also need to take care of your health.
Getting involved with a player can wear you down, believe me.
You may find that you’re feeling emotionally exposed and there is a chance that your twin flame is trying to use your weaknesses against you.
But it’s also possible that they may not be consciously aware of what they are doing, so it’s better to take the steps necessary to protect yourself from their potential manipulations.
What are these steps, you ask?
Make time for yourself each day to engage in positive and healthy activities.
Find ways to get physical exercise, eat a balanced diet and spend time on extracurricular activities. If possible, volunteer your time for charitable organizations.
You need to find ways to maintain your energy and presence so as not to become depressed, resentful, and worn out.
Also, make sure you have a close network of friends and family around you who are supportive of your relationships.
When you feel overwhelmed, talk to them about what you’re going through because it will make it easier for you to get help when the going gets tough.
Remember, loving yourself comes first before anything so even if your player twin flame bails out on you, it will never be your loss.
5) Don’t be a doormat
This tip may seem easy to follow, but it’s one of the mistakes you can make with your player twin flame.
As I mentioned earlier, your twin flame may use emotional reactions against you to control and manipulate you into doing what they want.
Sometimes they may even ask things that are unfair and unreasonable because they know how much you love them.
If they do these things, then you need to put up your guard and tell them that you don’t feel respected anymore.
One of the ways they’ll know you’re serious is by seeing that you’re holding yourself back from doing anything out of fear.
They might react in one of two ways: they’ll either stop playing on your emotions or they’ll become more controlling and manipulative.
So what should be your next course of action? Stand your ground.
If you get the feeling that your player twin flame is trying to control you and he or she doesn’t care, it’s best to cut bait and find someone else.
The last thing you want to do is become a doormat in your relationship and this will only happen if you don’t maintain balance in your life.
If you don’t give them the power to manipulate you, then they’ll be forced to change how they interact with others.
They’ll be forced to put in more effort to stay in control, so your relationship with them will improve once you stand up for yourself.
Remember, good relationships are built on mutual respect and good communication.
But don’t just take their actions as signs that you should bend over backward to accommodate them. That’s not what love is about!
Be honest and express your feelings honestly, because people can always see through false kindness and fake niceties.
In either case, your twin flame will have to deal with their feelings and their actions.
6) Don’t play games if you can help it.
This tip is one of the biggest mistakes you can make when dealing with a player’s twin flame.
Your twin flame may be emotionally distant and unavailable for long periods.
You may even find yourself feeling lonely and neglected, so you might try to keep your twin flame’s interest by playing games with him or her.
You might feel like you have to compete for attention, which can be very exhausting for both parties.
Not only that, your twin flame may think that you’re only interested in them if they can continue to play games with you and keep you in check.
If you find yourself in this type of situation, it’s best to communicate your feelings and ask for what you want.
For example, you might want to ask your twin flame to make more effort in spending time with you. If they say no, then you should respect their decision and move on.
All is not lost though because there are other people out there who will meet your needs, so just be patient as you continue to search for the right person for you.
You should consider this suggestion.
7) Don’t hold on.
Now, take note of this.
If you’ve given your twin flame a chance to see the error of their ways, but nothing has changed and they continue to play around, then it’s possible that they never will.
This is not always a reflection of your worth; sometimes people are just self-involved when they want something and lose interest after they get what they want.
As you try to make sense of your twin flame’s behavior, it’s also a good idea to avoid holding on too tightly.
Twin flames tend to be very nurturing and protective of their partner, so if your relationship becomes tumultuous due to your partner’s playful ways, this can lead to very low self-esteem and feelings of worthlessness.
And you know what’s worse?
These constant feelings of being neglected can take a serious toll on your mental health, so you should protect yourself from the effects of abandonment.
By freeing yourself from the bond, you’ll be able to cope better in the long run because you’ll be able to maintain a better sense of self-worth and independence.
So when it comes to maintaining your calm and balance, don’t give up hope.
8) Don’t allow him/her to rule your life.
Think of this as something self-explanatory.
Because your player twin flame’s behavior will be influential on your life, you need to protect yourself from their influence.
If you allow them to rule through your decisions, you’re going to be constantly under their influence and the relationship will eventually get stuck in a loop of bad habits.
As a result, your twin flame will become more distant and less reliant on taking care of you.
This will impact your relationship because you won’t feel as supported as before, which means that you’ll skip taking care of yourself for the fear of being abandoned.
What I am pointing out is that you should always make sure that you’re in charge of your own decisions.
If your twin flame gets into a habit of making decisions for you, then it’s best not to be in the relationship.
Don’t let them gain power over you and use their influence over your life to influence yours.
Thankfully, there are people out there who will support you in your quest for a fulfilling relationship.
9) Don’t be afraid to walk away.
Here is a simple fact. It’s no secret that people who are afraid to confront the truth will usually play their cards in a way that won’t result in any major problems.
That is if you know something’s wrong but you’re too busy with what you’re doing not to see it, then you’ll probably continue to use good excuses for your actions.
That’s what I would call being stuck in a “comfort zone.”
But you should know that people who are accustomed to living in their comfort zone usually have a difficult time when it comes to taking up other responsibilities.
It takes them time to make decisions and most of their actions are usually about avoiding major problems.
It’s also true that some people are too afraid to face their problems.
If this is the case and you’re one of those people who neglect yourself as much as possible to avoid confrontation with your twin flame, then I would recommend that you learn how to confront your problems head-on.
For starters, when confronting your problem, remember what it means to be honest and tell your twin flame that you want the best for them too.
However, some people may not be ready for a relationship because being in a relationship can take up a lot of their energy, especially for a player.
I would recommend that you discuss this with your twin flame before continuing…just in case.
10) Don’t let emotions run amok.
As I mentioned earlier, emotions can become powerful and overwhelming if left unchecked.
This is the reason why you should avoid letting your emotions run amok in the relationship.
When dealing with your twin flame, remember that even though you might be having fun or have feelings for them, if circumstances start to land on the two of you, then emotions will gradually get out of control.
And if this is the case, then these feelings can lead to tears and hurt feelings. So to avoid these problems, it’s best to talk openly about what’s bothering you and how you feel.
I also recommend that you make sure that your feelings are dealt with one-on-one so as not to create a scene.
Generally, if you let emotions run amok in your relationship, then this can result in many problems such as running away from reality. It’s true.
Yes, it is emotionally draining to deal with a player but you have to have your emotions in place.
11) Don’t be afraid to set boundaries.
This is such a simple step but it’s so hugely important that I had to put it last on my list.
When you find yourself in a relationship with a player’s twin flame, then you’ll be spending the majority of your time dealing with his/her difficulties.
As this is the case, you might feel like you’re carrying the whole world on your shoulders, so I would recommend that you set limits for yourself. It’s also useful to set limits for your twin flame so they can learn how to behave.
You’ll have an easier time managing your relationship if the only thing you have to worry about is yourself.
Also, setting limits will give you a sense of control and trust in your relationship, which is essential in moving forward.
So when it comes to setting boundaries, don’t be afraid to let go and make sure that you’re okay with whatever happens as a result of your decisions.
In a nutshell, the foundation for making it through your relationship with a player twin flame is, to be honest with yourself and have fortitude and self-control.
