You’ve probably had a friend who started dating a woman that really made you scratch your head. She was flaky, possessive, and high-drama. Everyone could see that the gal was toxic and really bringing your buddy down everyone, that is, except your buddy.

What gives? How do people end up in unhealthy relationships despite warning signs that their partner was bad news to begin with?

Using MRI machines, researchers at the University College London found that “feelings of love lead to a suppression of activity in the areas of the brain controlling critical thought. It seems that once we get close to a person, the brain decides the need to assess their character and personality is reduced.”

I remember watching this “Dr. Phil” episode one time about a guy who met a woman on a dating site with him who he really hit it off. Not long after, they were making plans to meet, but she was in another country and didn’t have the means to come to the U.S. to be with him. So, he decided to help — after all, he’d fallen hard for her.

For months, he’d send her money to use toward paying for her travel expenses, but something would always come up (it would get lost, there was another fee she’d forgotten about, etc.). Eventually, one of his friends asked Dr. Phil to see if he was being duped. Unfortunately, Dr. Phil’s team discovered that the woman didn’t actually exist and it was all part of an international scam.

There is nothing worse than getting into a relationship with a guy you think is boyfriend material only to end up dealing with a total jerk. I’m talking about a complete narcissist in the extreme case.

A guy who cares only about himself. The selfish, cold manipulative jerk who will emotionally use you and mentally abuse you until he’s sick of you. (and has already taken you for everything you have).

Then, when he has no purpose left for you, he just throws you away. And you’re so broken. You’re so much worse off than when you first started dating. It’s as if you cannot remember the person you were before the relationship began.

To the men who act in the ways I describe below: if you are reading this, then you are curious, you want to know; you want to understand what a woman.

Then all of sudden, you’ve got something heavy happening in your life. You explain it to her. You tell her you’d like to talk about it so you can get out of your head.

If a woman continues to ignore your needs in the beginning, then she’s going to walk all over you later in the relationship.

You want a healthy, great relationship? Then I strongly suggest when that red flag comes up, you talk about it instantly.
