Everyone has that guy friend who habitually (and understandably) complains that he always attracts 'crazy' women. These women tend to be extremely insecure, manipulative, unbalanced and emotionally unstable. As Dr. Tara J. Palmatier points out, the reason such men typically habitually end up in such relationships is because they choose to relive early childhood traumas. But before we discuss what motivates men to unconsciously seek out such titillating but ultimately poor relationship choices, we should first define what we mean by 'crazy.' The sort of women in mind are those diagnosed with at least one Cluster B personality disorder.
Cluster B of personality disorders are those categorized in the DSM-IV as 'erratic/dramatic', and include antisocial personality disorder, borderline personality disorder, narcissistic personality disorder and histrionic personality disorder. A great deal of overlap between these disorders is acknowledged in a large body of psychiatric literature, and anyone properly diagnosed with any of these personality disorders makes an extremely toxic romantic partner. There is also a very poor prognosis associated with these disorders. Such people (in this case, women) are highly unlikely to ever exhibit any significant change or insight into their own behavior, or improve their condition.
