When it comes to being satisfied with guys and relationships , many women find them problematic in one way or another.

The nice guy seems so refreshing when compared to the player. But why do we feel as though we’re settling when we’re dating the nice guy? The dating game is so freaking stressful! He remains in his comfort zone and rarely steps outside it. Needless to say, paragliding and shredding up the ATV trails are off the table. When you’re at the bar with the squad, he doesn’t even make the effort to have fun because it’s not his scene.

Jamie would scribble silly poems on napkins, then bring them across the street and have his after-work drink at my bar.

Here are seven types of Bad Men you may be hooked on, and why you just can’t quit them:. One day, he’s sending you paragraphs at lightning speed, the next few days: nothing.

She explains that this can be range from convincing yourself he’s just busy at work to coming up with elaborate scenarios for him not replying back.

You wait and pray for there to be a good guy left on this earth and finally one comes along and you find him boring or at least not challenging. He is completely into me.

It certainly is! Neither one is good or bad although it may seem that way. Odds are you either will recognize these characteristics in yourself or someone else. The three main attachment styles are as follows:. Odds are, you have most likely dated people with an anxious or avoidant attachment style. I know I have certainly dated my share! In fact, I dated so many people with this attachment style, I almost blew my chances when someone with a secure attachment style my husband—believe it or not came along!
Keep in mind, I would consider myself to have an anxious attachment style at least at this time! Back in the day, I was a big fan of online dating. It was easier than meeting people in person and I liked the screening process.

And so the spiral of anger and self-reproach begins, until the young man has convinced himself of the old myth, inspired by visions of leather jackets and dark glasses and flicked cigarettes; of bogeymen he has made out of the sportier boys at school with their first cars and beginner beards.
