¿WHY DO YOU WE STAY WITH MEN THAT ARE ‘BAD’ FOR US?

db0883789f859514c7c5f4fb5eb8df04I’m grateful to know a lot of smart, capable gay men. Sadly, many of these smart, capable men have committed themselves to guys who are clueless, emotionally unavailable, or just plain jerks. How does this happen so often?

Of course, gay men aren’t the only ones who deal with this phenomenon, this problem runs across all lines of gender and sexuality. No matter who you are or who you’re attracted to, it’s more than plausible that you’ve gotten together with someone who’s straight-up bad for you (and probably on more than one occasion).

Why do we do this? How do lovely people wind up with such unlovely mates?

    I think that some of us do so out of poor self-image or poor self-esteem. We somehow feel unworthy of any other type of love and muddle through with unhappy and abusive relationships. It’s past time for this cycle to end, but until it does, our community must struggle to deal with the outcomes and the pain. Naked hugs!

    Because the dick and/or the ass is good and we think we can “save” them or change them. We can’t of course, but we sure as hell enjoy the sex while we have it.
