While I know it is true, I find it very interesting that a woman would do that to get a man. What sort of man wants a woman who is a ditz?
I have been married for a long time. This goes on all the time with single women and even married women. My husband is not that handsome except to me. He was balding when he was in his 30's.
And yet there have been several instances where women have kind of thrown themselves at him in this needy way. As he is a counselor they ask for advice about their kids, they have s little crisis and have to have him come over. Or they need the hospital or furniture moved or something.
After the first time I related, my husband and I developed tactics to nip this in the bud. I take care of the matter myself. She calls I deal with the situation. She calls my husband he hands the phone to me.
I slowly wind the situation down.
I was surprised to find their are women (and probably men) that just like to break up good marriages/relationships
. They get a thrill from the drama.
I am lucky that my husband and I always talk to each other. I could express the first time how uncomfortable I was with the woman's intensity and my husband was insightful enough to catch on to what was going on.
Emotional vampire is a good term for these people.
Now that we are in our 50's this doesn't happen very often anymore.
