You also may be falling for the wrong guys because you're not paying close enough attention to possible relationship red flags.For example, you may choose to ignore or overlook the fact that a man behaves in a rude, possessive, dishonest, and/or jealous manner, when in reality, these kinds of disrespectful actions are clear indicators that he's the wrong man for you in every respect.An additional reason why women fall for the wrong guys is that these women believe that they can change these men into the partner and person they want him to be.
However, if you fall for a man who you think is in need of fixing or you're trying to change his behaviors and beliefs, the only thing he's likely to change is his relationship status to single.
So rather than viewing men who are wrong for you as fixer-uppers you can mold, shape, and rebuild, it's time to look for guys who already have the qualities, characteristics, and priorities in place that are important to you.
Fortunately, if you're struggling with self-esteem issues, there are steps you can take right now to combat these feelings of self-doubt, such as putting an end to negative self-talk, finding new and interesting activities you enjoy, and letting go of your incessant need to compare yourself to others.
When you're able to see just how amazing you truly are, you'll be better equipped to attract a man who recognizes this about you as well.
And when these shared characteristics are highly negative, such as your partner and father can both be described as short-tempered, ill-mannered, or unreliable, it's been shown that your relationship satisfaction is lower as well.
Even more telling, many women also unconsciously seek out men who share these negative traits with a parent as a way to attempt to right a wrong that these women faced during their youth.
And with these unfortunate statistics in mind, it's not surprising women can end up attracting men who don't treat them well, don't fulfill their needs, and don't provide them with love and emotional support because these women think they don't deserve any better.
And because these women tend to only believe the worst about themselves and mistakenly think they're not pretty enough, good enough, smart enough, or successful enough, they pick men who directly play into these insecurities.
Along these lines, another reason women fall for the wrong guys is that these women are afraid of being by themselves.
In fact, research has shown that many women are more than willing to stay in unhappy and unfulfilling relationships because they're intimidated by the prospect of being alone.
Another reason you're falling for the wrong guys may actually be directly tied to your upbringing.
