So the tendancy to describe or portray one person you love, like or admire to another person you love, like or admire, and to exaggerate or kind of coat the truth about one to the other so they will like each other. Is there a name for this?
It seems to be a problem in my relationship but I'm not sure how to define it so the one who is doing it will understand.
