It seems like, when I choose a ‘partner’, I pick men who are emotionally unavailable – whether I know they are or not.
They used to be men who wouldn’t even take care of me, let alone “fight for me”. In fact, when I actually started needing my partner to be present in the relationship, neither of my long-term relationships lasted at all. Both of them discarded me easily when I started needing them as much as they needed me.
I hoped that this time, with TC, I chose differently.
