Ambivalent Men and the Women Who Love Them

Ambivalent Men and the Women Who Love Them | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it

The non-committal, emotionally unavailable man pairing with an overly attentive female who is willing to hang in there--no matter what--is a surprisingly common relationship. Always eager to sew wild oats, the male in this dynamic is frequently described as a "player.”

Why in this scenario does the female stay true to such a man? It may be because she believes his very aloofness makes him a more desirable catch. If she hangs in there long enough, he will eventually commit, and it will mean so much more because he was so ambivalent about her in the beginning. She sees a chance for self-validation in earning his attention when others couldn't.

Women caught in this circular thinking rarely experience a happy romantic ending.

Sharrock's insight:

excerpt: "Apparently the foreign women’s situation is not all that bad — at least not according to Caroline Pover’s recently published “Love with a Western Woman: A Guide for Japanese Men,” in which she taps the knowledge of a bevy of foreign females who have found their almond-eyed Prince Charmings. But what about the other side of the story? Is Japan really the foreign guy’s paradise on Earth that some would have you believe?"

I like this quote: "“From what I’ve seen and experienced, the main cause of breakups is when one or both people in a relationship stubbornly refuse to acknowledge the validity of the other’s culture."
