The true and sad reasons why ‘bad men’ are so addictive to women and how to break away from them

THE TRUE AND SAD REASONS WHY ‘BAD MEN’ ARE SO ADDICTIVE TO WOMEN AND HOW TO BREAK AWAY FROM THEM

Rita Luciano

Are women addicted to ‘bad men,’ or is there something else going on?
“What is a bad man?” you ask. We’re talking about men who destroy women’s self-esteem or well-being, and emotionally abuse them. These bad men could be felons or gang members, but they’re often just average men who treat women poorly and emotionally abuse them.

These men don’t usually start bad. They might have a past of being nice – or pretending to be nice. Women fall for them, and they love them dearly. These women recognized the ‘bad men’ weren’t perfect from the beginning, but they convinced themselves they could ‘fix’ these men and make them better.

The true and sad reality is that women in emotionally abusive relationships often suffer from low self-esteem and feel trapped in these relationships – they’re not addicted. These women might not think they can do better, and they might not think they deserve better.

We were engaged to be married but she cheated on me

She Cheated On Me | My Fiancee Cheated On Me Before Marriage | Bonobology.Com

“WE WERE ENGAGED TO BE MARRIED BUT SHE CHEATED ON ME”

Mariya Salim

The story of a man who was cheated and broke off his engagement and is rebuilding his life

We never imagine that something terrible can happen to us until it actually does. Was I a fool to think everlasting love exists? Was honesty too much to ask for? Should she not have just told me and moved on with dignity?

Engaged to be married, I caught my fiancé cheating and decided to call the wedding off.

It’s not easy when you share the workplace with your ex and I feel like all eyes are on me and all minds trying to sort out the Gordian knot that my personal life has suddenly become. It’s been two months and I haven’t seen her in the office. It bothers me to think what story she may have spun to explain what happened between us, especially when I get cold stares from her friends.

Luis R. Valadez

We all as social creatures have a deep and underlying desire to find that one perfect person to spend the rest of our days with. That one person when you meet, you feel an uncontrollable attraction to and an illogical sense of familiarity with. As if you’ve known that person for a lifetime, or perhaps lifetimes. Whatever you want to call it, films and TV series alike have romanticized the phenomenon known as the soulmate. But what do we really know about the perfect mate or the ideal partner? Psychology is finally shedding light on the mystery that encapsulates so many hearts and minds around the world in an effort to understand what truly makes two people compatible for a relationship.

A Return to Who You Were When You Were Dating

A RETURN TO WHO YOU WERE WHEN YOU WERE DATING

Tawny May

Are you the same girl your husband married?

When we were “just friends” and dating, my husband would frequently tell me that he appreciated how “down” I was–ready for an adventure, chill enough to do nothing (when applicable), easy-going, and the antithesis of demanding. I took pride in that attribute and really tried to embody it in our relationship. I remember hearing him describe me to his friends, and I’d blush when he told them how good I was for him.

​We dated, courted, got married, and basically just swam together in a sea of bliss every day.

But you know how it is–life happens…you can’t stay in your proverbial Kauai forever. Years passed. Work sucked. Free time was scarce. A baby was born. Responsibilities mounted high.

Attachment Theory Explains Why Your Relationships Fail

ATTACHMENT THEORY EXPLAINS WHY YOUR RELATIONSHIPS FAIL

Kyle Benson

The beliefs you adopt in pursuing your relationships determine the type of relationships you end up with.

We are attracted to those who confirm the beliefs we hold about ourselves.

Meet Miguel. Miguel plays games, hides his true intentions, and manipulates women to stay in a relationship with him. His beliefs about relationships cause him to naturally attract women who also play games and manipulate people. His ex-girlfriend Jamie, who doesn’t play games, was attracted to Miguel initially, but by the third date she grew sick of his behavior.
