4 Reasons Why Women Like Men Who Treat Them Like Crap


I'm aware that it's bad. I also wish I could halt. But the truth is that many of my girlfriends and I are equally guilty. Sue us, then.

1. You'll never truly be his.

Even when you get to the point where you can call each other "boyfriend" and "girlfriend," there will always be a part of you that is on edge, never knowing what will happen next. There is something about the unknown that can be so intoxicating, and the rug can be ripped out at any time. When you are constantly anticipating and waiting, the moment when love, attention, or confirmation finally happens is like taking a massive dose of an amazing drug. We always desire things that we are unable to obtain.

2. Every detail is unexpected.

Even if you're so furious at him that you can hardly speak, let's say it's been several days since you heard from him, when he finally calls, you're going to pick up the phone with anticipation and trepidation. The moment you hear his voice again, which was all you were looking for, you're going to instantly forgive him. It is interesting because it is unexpected. His love continues to be a surprise because you never know when or where it will appear.

3. He is unconcerned with your needs.

There is something incredibly sexy about a guy who has nothing to lose with you because one of the least sexy things in a guy is the feeling of neediness and obsession — the kind of stuff that makes women "friend zone" someone when she's really just exercising her disinterest. These relationships definitely have a power dynamic because you depend on his affection while he could live without you. You feel as though he is choosing to be with you as a favor, which makes you want to hold on even tighter and be grateful for what you already have.

4. He has self-confidence.

The power of confidence. Few things attract more positive attention to a guy who is a fully independent, sure-of-himself prick than that. It's like some kind of natural perfume that just radiates off of people and draws others in. You respond in a very instinctive way to someone who is completely confident in every facet of themselves. You can't help but want to be around that attitude despite knowing there is so much to learn from it.
