Smart Women, Foolish Choices

DSC_1543 copy

Diane is 28, single, an ambitious and successful free-lance writer. Most men find her attractive, and she is never without a relationship. Yet she always seems to attract men who are independent, self-centered, emotionally closed, and unwilling to make a lasting commitment to her.

Diane decided she would like to find a more open, sensitive and vulnerable man. She thought she had found what she was longing for in Neil. A 30-year-old architect, he was as open and giving as her previous lovers had been aloof and uncommitted. As they grew closer, Neil confided in her about certain career insecurities. He frequently told Diana he cared for her and needed to feel close to her.
