Sex & the Single Woman: Not the Good Kind

Fictional sex columnist Carrie Bradshaw once tried therapy to find the answer to her relationships woes. The assessment of the therapist was simple: she chooses the wrong men.

I believe this is a completely valid theory, but the solution seems nonexistent. We are told to follow our hearts, to listen to our instinct; love is drawn to be a crazy reckless endeavor. Reason is to be thrown out the window in favor of the unexpected. With that kind of build up, it doesn’t seem fair that that we should be able to throw the brakes and consider if a man is the wrong type.

Sometimes it’s easy to pick out the heartbreakers, other times (the most painful times) it takes us by surprise. So yes, some women may have a problem with choosing the wrong men, but is there anything we can actually do about it?
