I don't know. It's kind of fun to see how you can control other people and what they do when you merely speak a request. I wouldn't intentionally cause harm to people I can manipulate, but I don't see much harm in having a little fun. I think it's fine as long as the manipulator isn't being a complete douche and is aware that the other person is vulnerable but shouldn't be taken advantage of.

Being able to tell people to do things for you can be pretty nice. I don't fully use my leverage, but it's often tempting to do something when you know that you can.

I did it for fun, then lost interest and really thought about it
I've done nothing ever since.


I'm willing to bet none of this played out in reality and you were a bystander at best.

I wasn't the center but I was apart of it, spreading the rumors through friends and such on purpose
I guess I made it sound like I was the center, but I still hide the fact that I had something to do with it from people

Because people are idiots and don't realise hints, or take them the wrong way. It's not toying, it's usually just the other person misinterpreting the other.

Some people can just be real jerks about it. I had it happened multiple times in school and hit a point where i decided its best to just not trust anyone. I still go by the and the only exception so far is my wife.

Some people just want to see some drama unfold, and watch the world burn.

I generally think of two categories for things: Persuasion and hypnotism.

Persuasion is where you convince people to do something, or think something, or something else.

Hypnotism is where you have a knowledge of phychological patterns, and use this knowledge to convince people to do something, or think something, or something else.


The catch? They're both the same thing. Hypnotism is just educated persuasion. Persuasion is just unknowing hypnotism. It's all in the mind. I can describe the most innocent persuasion as the most cold-hearted hypnotism, because in the end they're undistinguishable from each other.

TL;DR:
It's only "toying with people's hearts" because that's what you think it is.

I'm actually not sure why. The truth is that people make mistakes, but there ARE some people that are just MEAN. Maybe they weren't taught what is right and wrong when they were growing up, which most likely affects relationships between friends, boyfriends/girlfriends, and family members. Maybe one day they'll realize what they are doing wrong, and grow up.

I'll say this when someone can play with your heart like a string, they will strung it until it snaps.
