Am I the only one that feels this way?

I feel like I'm the only one that attracts guys that are no good for me. There's this guy that could be really good to me. The first guy in a long time but he lives with either his brother or mother, he has a dead end job and I am hesitant to go out with him again. He's never been married and the last girl he dated was 24 and he's 38. I'm not sure he's mature enough for a relationship but I need some attention because it's been a couple of years since I've even kissed someone. Why do I continually attract guys that aren't good for me?

  • last 15 years had two relationships
    both crappy men
    with a few crap dates in between

    was thinking lately, do i pick crap men, do they pick me, or are there so many crappy men that it is very difficult NOT to pick a crap one?

  • I like your answer flatpax. Maybe there are just a lot a lot a lot of crappy men and there aren't really any good one's to choose from anymore. I'm glad I'm not the only one but it's not fair. My GF is going through a divorce and she already has a guy that treats her like a queen. not fair. When is it my turn?

  • I think too many women are looking for that "romance movie" in their lives. They expect to much from their men, or the relationship, and chase away the "good ones" thinking they're going to find McDreamy around the corner. And, they attract, and are attracted to the wrong type...because the movies always show the "bad guy turned good for the love of his life". But, women forget to stop and think....oh yeah, he changed because ITS IN THE SCRIPT!!!
