Some people are so desperate for companionship that they will alter their selves just to attract the opposite sex. They develop some fantasy that by behaving a certain way, or engaging in questionable activities they can attract that which they seek. In essence, they are becoming that which repulsed them previously.
This process involves the abandonment of the personality that existed before. Unfortunately, this also involves in throwing aside all friendships and acquaintances held before.
Those friends didn’t get them what they wanted anyway, just cast them aside. They were just in the way.
I know someone who has done this. I have tried to warn them that only unhappiness and disappointment await, but to no avail. This person is determined. I can’t predict whether there will be any pieces to pick up after the fall. After being badly treated by this person, will I want to pick them up?
