You are neither stupid nor foolish. You know this guy doesn't deserve your attention and you realize he's not worth a thought, let alone anything bigger.
You know he's to nothing is good. You know that he doesn’t treat you right and that you shouldn’t pay attention to him even if he were the last person alive.
But despite all this you somehow can't stop chasing him. Why is that?
1. Deep down you hope that he will change
Even though you keep telling everyone that you have lost all hope that this guy will become the man you deserve, the truth is actually quite different.
Even though you keep telling yourself you've finally accepted that this guy will never come to his senses, the truth is you're still hoping a miracle.
Deep inside you, beneath the surface and the face you present to the rest of the world, there really is a great deal of hope.
Whether you want to admit it or not, a part of you still believes that this man will eventually change.
And of course you want to be there when that happens.
You keep giving him “one last chance” because you think that he is almost ready, that he will slowly start treating you right and that soon he will see that you are the right one for him .
2. You think you can save him
Another reason most women chase men when they know they shouldn't is because they do want to save.
You think of yourself as a Wonder Woman who can help this man with all his problems.
You think you are the only one who can heal his emotional instability.
The only one who can tear down all the protective walls around his heart and open his soul to love.
The bottom line is that you don’t really leave him because you don’t want to give him up.
You don’t want to let him go because deep down you don’t realize that this toxic man is with you you plays You think he is a lost soul who needs your help.
You don't want to leave him because you think he can't make it without you and that it's your job to see to his well-being.
3. You're scared of being alone
As crazy as that sounds, there's no denying that this man has become your comfort zone. You got used to running after him.
That's why you don't know what you would do with yourself if he weren't there. After all, the crumbs of his love and affection are much better than not having anyone.
You may not realize it, but the fact is that you are afraid to be left alone. It's better to have half a man than no man at all, isn't it?
Well, if you see it that way, it's time to change your mind. If you're honest, you'll admit that you're more than lonely next to this man.
What would so fundamentally change in your life if you got rid of him? What would be different?
Trust me -; you don't have it and you are already lonely and single.
4. You're sorry for wasting so much time with him
You've been after this guy for as long as you can remember. You put all your strength and patience into it.
You wasted months or even years of your life on it. You put so much effort into this quasi-relationship.
And now you don't want to give up because you think you're close to the finish line.
You want to have your way – after all the sacrifices you've made, you finally want him as your friend.
Well, let me tell you something: it's much better, all the time you've wasted until now, to lose than to waste more days and weeks of your life.
You also learned some new painful but valuable life lessons from this whole thing.
Think of it as a time to learn something, not wasted time.
5. You don't have anyone better
You chase after this guy because you firmly believe that all men are equal.
Even if you give another man a chance, he will end up hurting you just as much and breaking your heart – why not just stick with that ass?
After all, it's always better to stick with your enemies than to let new friends into your life who also end up being your enemies.
You know this man inside and out. You know what to expect from him and you don't feel like messing with someone you don't know anything about.
Well, all I can tell you is that you feel this way, because you didn't give anyone else a real chance.
You can't know what's going to happen without trying, right?
