Such a commitment and pattern of excessive responsibility often lends itself to dependent manipulation and to perversions of the meaning of love. Another perversion of love entails conditional dialogue and acceptance which threatens rejection and excommunication if conformity is not properly achieved. Such relationships are characterized by a lack of interest in genuine dialogue. In such relationships dialogue is a reward for conformity, rather than the focus of a personal desire.
