I have been attracted to women who were emotional wrecks, but I didn't know they were saddled with baggage until after I started dating them.

No, that never really happens to me. I'm usually more attracted to people who end up seeing me as emotionally unavailable. And I suppose I am.

Quite the opposite, I usually end up being the one who is emotionally unavailable...

Ha... ha. I can't help it.

I find myself in this predicament-but I can't tell upfront that these people are emotionally unavailable. It sucks because it's empty and you know that these people have the potential to be drating awesome companions, etc...They just keep themselves detached and screw you out of happiness in the process while trying to protect themselves from getting hurt and/or dealing with life! GRRRRRRRRRRR...

I usually go for the guys that are the most complicated jerks around, I can't help it, they just draw me in because I feel like I can help them. They're interesting and mysterious...

Well, I know from my own inner workings that one-time idealism and emotional vulnerability that were exploited, used, and abused condition the perfectly undaunted soul into a jaded, pessimistic, withdrawn, fearful, and defensive type of essence. I hate it because I find myself this way to an extent but then I get frustrated when it's a barrier that prevents me from getting closer to other people who are too worried about getting hurt to let me in...I guess it's different for me because I have had my emotional ass kicked and practically on life support in the ICU time and again, but my stubborn sentimentality won't disallow me from hoping that given the opportunity, something great and meaningful can precipitate with isolated people. The thing that cracks me up, and it applies to myself as well-people who come across as cold and unavailable are the weakest links-they try to overcompensate for their jelly insides. I hate it when poeple try to beat me at my own game!

Hmmm, I would amend the emotionally unavailable to life-sucking emotional parasites...At least the situation that sparked this post...

I'm unintentionally attracted to guys who are either A) complete jerks or B) they start to like me, I like them less because they are now achievable, and then they can't take a hint and like me to the point of obsession. So I'm either the broken-hearted or the heartless. It's a fun cycle. I enjoy it.

yup, always. the world seems so cold to me
