If you’re not one of the lucky ones, you’re probably re-enacting childhood relationships in an effort to negate your original feelings of hurt and loss by trying to have an emotionally corrective experience. The women you’re attracted to aren’t anymore capable of giving you what you need and want than your parent(s), sibling(s), or whomever caused your original emotional injury.
You end up repeating the same doomed relationship pattern with the same type of person. Parentified sons often grow up to have adult relationships with women who need to be “rescued,” when in reality, it’s the men who need to be rescued from these women who appear to be fragile waifs, but quickly turn into abusive aggressors when you disappoint them or fail to meet her expectations, which are often unrealistic.
The signs may be there, you just need to know what they are. We find a gorgeous, funny, intelligent (if we’re lucky) woman who seems… But there is one thing we’ve not considered – her level of sanity.Which means that after a while, that perfect woman turns into a mad woman, and you’re in her firing line of craziness.When people think of a psychopath they naturally think of people like Christian Bale's character in American Psycho or the guy Anthony Hopkins played in Silence of the Lambs; the kind of person who goes on psychotic murdering sprees; when in fact, the guy we share a bed with every night could possess some of the same psychotic traits...Have you ever felt like you were walking on eggshells?Even the hottest girlfriend in the world has faults.
