Most men in their lives at some point or another has dated a woman who can be classified in the crazy section. You know, the type of girl who initially seems cool and normal but eventually piece by piece begins to show red flag that only continue to increase till the point is all you see are red flags.
Well I am not ashamed to admit that i am one of those men, in fact i have been one of those men on several occasions, and even times knowing that she is crazy.
So you may be wondering why or have seen a guy that was obviously dating a crazy but regardless stuck with it causing you to wonder why.
Well here are two reasons a man will date a woman who is considered a bit unstable.
It’s no secret that men are highly visual creatures, we stare at woman as they pass by, we sneak peeks during class or work, we take a few extra seconds to observe a beautiful picture of a woman online.
This is because one of the most important traits of a woman is beauty to men, it is so important that most men will ignore everything else if in his eyes she is beautiful.
Barney from How I met your mother, explained it best with the “Hot/Crazy” Scale, which in summary states that as long as a woman is as hot as she is crazy. A guy will date her or continue to date her.
She is dumb? no problem.
She is lazy? No problem
She is a serial killer? No problem.
It’s not until a man has dated her long enough that he has gotten use to her beauty that the red flags begin to become an issue, but by that time he is already involved and is in for a long drama filled road to an eventual break up.
There are men that have been single for a while, perhaps he is still broken from a past relationship or has yet to find that first special girl. Which ever the case is, for some men being single for a long time takes a toll on them.
They see couples everyday, movies and television are filled with men and women in loving relationships. He sees this and begins to feel lonely. He doesn’t know when it will be his turn.
He then meets a girl. She is a bit rude and abusive but she kinda likes him. He ignores all this so that he no longer has to feel alone and they begin a relationship.
He will rationalize her poor behaviour and attitude to keep the illusion of the happy relationship up so he doesn’t have to go back to being alone, and the relationship continues.
So the next time you left scratching your heading wondering why this guy would be dating such a crazy woman. Odds are it is because he finds he beautiful, or is desperate.
…Or perhaps its you that is crazy.
