There is such a difference between what is available for men and woman.
What I find most interesting at this point is the whole dating scene.
We will also feel lonely when we are abandoning ourselves, because when we are not connected with ourselves, we cannot connect with another.
Feeling both alone and lonely can lead to a deep experience of despair.
Possibilities that come to mind include substance abuse, cheating, emotional abuse, depression, bitterness, and fear of commitment. So, I started to think, why would she (or any woman) attract damaged men? And so, they settle for someone they know isn't right, because in their mind, it's better than not having someone. Now, they get into relationships with guys who cheat, because that's all they know. A lack of self-love almost always leads to people dating men (or women) who aren't right for them.
