Cult-me once, cult-me twice

Watching the show called “The Shrink Next Door” made me think about the type of relationships that are based on control. This hits close to home, as I also know someone who –in my opinion- got involved in a “cult-like” relationship.

This applies to all types of relationships and not only to romantic ones. (i.e. in the show mentioned above, the person had a very controlled relationship with his shrink.)

In cult-like relationships, the subject person goes under complete control of the other and lives with ongoing manipulation.
