Our expert says:
dis-ease, maybe, but not disease. And maybe a really lousy memory ? It goes well beyond optimism to fall for the same con time after time. It sounds as though you are scared of nding up alone ( and so you respond in a way that makes this much more likely to happen ) ; that you feel you don't deserve a eal relationship with a decent bloke, so you accept whatever turns up ; and that you feel so desperately scared that this is all there is and ther'll never be anyone else, that you accept really lousy deals with really lousy people. See a CBT therapist to enhance your self-esteem, learn to be more discriminating, and learn how to wait for a person worth relating to, rather than picking up everyone else's discards. You have grown to dislike yourself so much, unfairly, that you continue to punish yourself in this way.
And getting proper professional help doesn't show that you're weak --- it's NOT getting help you obviously need, that truly shows your weakness. Getting what you need and solving your problems, is nothing like weakness.
