Many of us know women like this, and unfortunately, some of us have been this kind of woman.
Reality television in particular seems to thrive off of these emotional and psychological problems.
It's really starting to affect me because now, every time I talk to a guy, it's all I think about and it consumes me daily.

They're bound to inform all our romantic relationships. An ongoing, guided conversation with a professional could help you unpack these feelings so your past isn't always interfering with your present. If therapy isn't right for you, make sure you have good friends (or family) who can hear you out.
It sounds like you're recognizing some unhealthy behaviors — and recognizing how they're affecting your relationships. In general, deep-seated issues aren't cured with quick fixes. Everyone's issues are just different, depending on how, as Larkin writes, those mums and dads fucked you up.

I am always attracted to men who are old enough to be dads and I like to pampered and submissive. I read that girls with daddy issues have a fucked up relationship with their father or their father was absent when they were still too young.
