Ask friends who are happy in their relationships to describe how their guy behaves toward them so you can hear what you're missing out on.Repeatedly choosing the wrong guys signals that you may be driven to re-create the drama you had with your father or first boyfriend.Many women who had an absentee dad or let the arrogant JV football captain string them along for years will go for men who are unavailable or talk down to them because they're subconsciously trying to resolve things with the guy who let them down earlier in life, says Dunn — even though, clearly, that's not solving anything.When I hear about a girl's man, I'm assuming we probably shouldn't be on that date period.If she literally can't keep his name out of her mouth for a couple of hours, it makes me feel like she's clearly not over past issues.
