My dating blackbook could double for a cliff's notes version of the DSM-IV.
While there's a wide breadth of the different types I've been with, the only real consistent variable is: me. What is it about me that allows myself to keep falling into these futile, chaotic, self-destructive relationships? And what sorts of checks and balances have worked for those with my predilection?
