I am single and 52. How can I stop being attracted to the wrong man? They treat me badly, and I have the courage to let them go at the very beginning of the relationship. I then start missing the good times and forget the reason why I left . I keep mentally and emotionally hooked to them – even for years – and close myself to any other relationship. I sometimes go back to them for a very short time to receive the same bad treatment. I always try to convince myself that I did something wrong. I am so used to this pattern that I cannot feel how it would be to be in a relationship without stupid games, lack of respect or an abusive “love”. Why do I do this to myself when I want just the opposite?
