Sex & the Single Woman: Straight, No Chaser

While talking to one of my roommate’s friends recently, a common but little discussed topic came up: women who are compulsively attracted to gay men. She calls these women “chasers,” because they pursue, but to no avail.

Why is this? Are there certain traits we desire that can only be found in gay men?

How do you break this kind of pattern? I believe that there are some men who are unattainable, but I feel like there is always a chance. In this case, though, I feel like it’s impossible.

Is there anything that we can do to avoid this?
