Many men and women find themselves falling into patterns of getting
involved with the "wrong" kind of partner. This may prove to be
frustrating, resulting in a helpless feeling. The question "Why?" is
often asked. "Why do I keep getting involved with the same kind of

what you are thinking, only that you are having light conversation.

relationships that have impacted your past relationships negatively.
Regardless of how attracted you are to a man, don't rationalize the
red flags waving in front of your eyes. Making excuses for these will
