Why when you are in love with someone and you find out they did something really bad to where you don't want to be in a relationship anymore............You stay? Men don't do this very often, but I would like to know why does this always happen to women? Why to we tend to stay with someone that hurts us before walking away?

I know it has already been said, but I'll say it again....hope. We women (or at least me) always cling to the small hope that things will change. Most of the time they don't. Once in a while they do. We just seem to forget all of the previous times that didn't change. Sometimes I think it's fear that keeps us where we are....whether we want to be there or not. It could be the fear of our lives changing, fear that we won't be able to find someone else.

we have different reasons why we stay in a bad relationship. before my ex boyfriend got a girl pregnant. at first i was really so mad at him. but later on i understand the situation, as long as he will make arrangements about the baby. i feel that ill give him another chance. people change, sometimes but there are some who didnt even how many times you gave them a chance. i try to hold on thinking that one day, hings will turn out well. and im just dissapointed with the fact that things wont work out for us anymore. so one day i just fall out of love. i still love him but i have to let go. than staying with him and hurt my self over and over again. and it doesnt happen to girls alone. have friends who are guys who have the same situation like mine.

SIMPLE...For men..the more women you sleep with you get a STAR, For women... you get a SCAR. Let's be honest ,we live a society of double standards.How many women will really feel proud /happy that their future daughter in law had a history of sleeping around.If son did this ...AH WELL HE IS A MAN. As my sister once said im gonna try hard to make this work....I don,t really want another man to see what's really under my underwear....unless he is my Gyno/Ob God has bless women with a greater strength to handle such situations,and the abilty to hope that a better day will come...
