Why am I attracted to psychos?

Pardon this post's lack of structure.

I realized last night I'm attracted to psychos.

I dated this one girl for 6 years. ****ED in the head. Always heard what she wanted to hear. Her thoughts never followed any sort of logic. Loved her to death.

A girl I had a crush on for 9 years, finally wound up dating her over winter break, and lo, she's a ****ED in the head sex fiend.

Girl I've been goin after for the past month is ****ED in the head in a high strung sort of way. She's also a maneater. And dear god I want her.

Had a one night stand with a chick who was probably certifiably insane. Played me like a drum, but seriously, WTF.

Dated a girl for a month who was stable, smart, and witty, but I didn't like her in the romantic type of way. I think its because she seemed too safe. Seriously, WTF?!

I've resolved that any relationship I get into for now on is going to be on equal grounds. Unfortunately, when you date a psycho they tend to control the direction of the relationship. So this is something I need to change. I'm thinking I could go in two directions. I can out psycho the psychos. Play hard to get, and make them work for me instead of visa-versa. But since they're psycho, this isn't exactly reliable. OR, I can give up on them entirely. But that's like tryin to quit heroin cold turkey. Why?! What drives me towards the Pirate wenches and not the bonnie lasses?

Any other manfolk experience this?

Stop thinking in terms of everyone being a serious relationship.
It puts too much pressure on and you start that "thinking" crap again and look where it's getting you?

Do you really ALWAYS have to be in a relationship?
Can't you be satisfied just being YOU for a while?
Seriously, ease up. After 6 yrs with one, leave be for a while.
Bask in the singleness.

I think from experience I can say that I can sense that eagerness in a man (not just the sexual eagerness, that's purely on the surface) and it might make a rational woman back away.
I think too in women that alot of insecurities are there in youth. What's taken for psycho is generally one who's simply not sure of themselves just yet.

Be patient, be cool, she'll find you. In the meantime dig who you are and what you've become.

though I don't have as much experience as you, for some reason, I fear I may be attracted to women who are either high strung, or will have me whipped like the family pig. No idea why, I think it's because it's somewhat attractive when the women's in charge. My girlfriend now isn't any of these things, but she's completely awesome, so it's fine. The few times she made it known she was absolutely in charge, I felt strongly attracted to her, ALOT. Even moreso than before.

If you're going after psychos that you have no future with and are shying away from sane, stable women, it probably just means you're not really ready for a relationship. You may want one, but more than likely, you're not ready. I was like that for a long time. A LONG time.

I just read the title, not the body. So did you trade Ryan F in for Cypress?

You're like a girl who complains she only dates losers, boring guys, or guys who live in their parents basement. There are nice girls out there, you just gotta wade through the crazy ones first.

My ex was (probably still is) a psycho. It was mild at first, but progressively got worse after we were married. This is why we're not married anymore, and I moved 2700 miles away from her and left no forwarding information.
My fiancee isn't psycho, although by her own admission she is high maintenance. This I can deal with because it's consistent. With psycho, you never know what to expect.

I dont see the problem here ..


One thing that you gotta factor in is the hours you put into going pro. You are probably away for good portions time right? That can make even regular women, slightly psycho.. Methinks if you want to continue the lifestyle, you should look a smart funny. level headed lass who genuinely likes you.

These days I am a lot more sensible when it comes to dating.. Despite the initial attraction being purely physical/banter, I do a check to make sure that this person would fit into my lifestyle without sacrificing too much. Try that the next time.

Everyone under 30 or so think they have to be in a relationship. When the right girl (or guy) comes along, you WILL know it. It will be so blatantly obvious, and all others will be just 'practice runs' for your soulmate.

I don't believe you.

What about when you've felt girl a or girl b irrefutably was you're soulmate, then a year later, poof, NOT.

I thought the same thing with a broad I was with for two years back in the early 90's. After two years she split with the clown next door. But in 2004 I met a girl and REALLY knew she was the one...all within ten minutes of meeting her. She felt likewise. A week later I was moved in with her and 5 months later we married. I had a place in Palmetto, FL. and practacally gave it away. We have been in absolute love all this time and it gets better every day. I can not imagine life without her in it anymore. She is THE love of my life although there have been other lovers.

Then she wasn't. Really is that easy.

You are (here it comes) really young still. Its a really difficult thing to judge until you are older and your hormones have come to regulated levels...

Or take the understanding to the next step, look up anam cara, maybe she wasn't a soul "mate".
