1. The woman who only wants what she can’t have

The chase is what thrills her, and once she’s done chasing, she needs to find another source to feed her adrenaline. She wants him so bad when she can’t have him, but as soon as he’s obtainable she loses interest. She most likely doesn’t realize that she only desires the undesirable, but as she becomes bored when feelings are reciprocated, it becomes apparent.

2. The woman who is attracted to assholes

No woman wants to be attracted to a man who treats her with less respect than she deserves, but sometimes it just happens. The woman who constantly tries to obtain affection from a man who isn’t willing to give it to her is single for that reason. It doesn’t mean she has no self-esteem, or suffers from a severe case of ‘daddy issues,’ it just means she hasn’t given the right guys a chance.

3. The woman who is ‘boy crazy’

This is the woman who has 5 different men all calling her at once. She is highly desired, and for good reason. She’s a catch, and many men know it, but just because she’s a catch doesn’t mean someone has caught her. Often times this woman has so much male attention she doesn’t know what to do with it, which is why she’s often single. She doesn’t have trouble developing feelings, she has trouble choosing which man to have the strongest feelings for.

4. The woman who thinks no one wants her

She’s completely oblivious to the laws of attraction, and even if a man has been staring at her from across the bar for the past hour, she thinks he’s looking at the woman behind her. She doesn’t necessarily lack confidence, she is just a little clueless when it comes to men, and she really doesn’t care. She’s happily oblivious.

5. The woman who constantly compares men to her ex

Maybe she’s still in love with her ex, or maybe she genuinely hates him, either way any new guy she meets, there is an instant comparison. Sometimes her new potential love interest will never measure up, or sometimes he is too good to be true. Her constant comparing sabotages any hope left to make a new relationship last.

6. The woman who is addicted to work

She’s a workaholic by choice, and she loves her career, so much so that she has little time to worry about a significant other. When she finds a man she truly cares about, work usually comes first, and she doesn’t feel the need to change that. She wants to find a man who will understand that she loves her career just as much as she loves him.

7. The woman who loves anyone who loves her

Does she like the person for who they are, or does she simply like them because they like her? She won’t admit that she likes attention, but she certainly thrives when showered with affection. Sometimes this woman thinks she is falling in love, but sometimes she is blinded by a man who finally treats her right, that she cares less about who she’s having a relationship with, and more about simply having a relationship. She’ll figure out her true feelings eventually. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
