Sentence: "Come on, out with it, girl" said Rebecca to Margie. "Now, what have you found out about your dream man?" Margie was reluctant to tell her friend that her dreamboat was chugging down the River of Deceit, taking on water and turning into a nightmare. "Well", said Margie, "I keep finding out more about Dick by accident". "Like what?" said Rebecca. "Well, turns out he is married, has five kids, no job, is bankrupt and is a klepto-alcoholic gambler!" "Oh, Margie, wake up and smell the coffee. Dick is oopsolazy. He'd never admit to his faults and every day you are going to find out more bad news about him. Dump him! It's time to scrape off your shoes and keep on walking, girl!" "If only I could, Rebecca, but you see his parole officer called me today to say that he's jumped bail and put my house up for collateral. On top of that, 2 more women called today claiming he was their husband, too. If he wasn't such a good kisser, I would really consider breaking up with him!"

Manipulady

DnBrown

Created by: DnBrown

Pronunciation: Man-ip-u-lady

Sentence: Brittany thought she had found the perfect guy in Chuck. He had great looks, a great job, a fantastic personality, and his name was Chuck. He was the perfect guy. He would take her on romantic dinners, to art galleries, telling her how much she meant to him. She believed she had found the jackpot. Unfortunately so did four other women who were currently involved with Chuck. Finally, due to some cell phone snooping, Brittany's eyes had been opened. He was just using her, he didn't really tell her that much about himself, because they would really only talk about her. But now she was able to see Chuck for what he really was, not the perfect guy, but a Manipulady.

Etymology: From the words Manipulating, derived from Manipulate ( to manage or influence skillfully, esp. in an unfair manner) and Lady (a woman)
