A phenomenon that I have noticed from time to time is, for the lack of a better term, the crazy woman spiral. It is rather sad to watch, and is seemingly preventable. Something in a woman’s life goes bad, she is distraught. She clutches the boyfriend/husband/friends closer, often in clingy/awkward ways. They are surprised/confused and draw back, hoping that she will get over it. This just makes her more distraught, so she doubles down on the behavior that was driving other people away. And on it goes. It usually does not end well. Very often there is projection happening, where she is accusing the others of what she herself is doing. It is odd how so very often this happens; there has got to be something going on inside that makes this happen.
Young men; watch for signs of this. There is the test of time. Usually such a woman can’t keep it from happening over an extended period of time.
As for why it happens to women, perhaps it is because they are more dependent by nature than men. Anything that threatens their security can raise the anxiety level fast.
Probably there is no cure other than not allowing girls to enter adulthood with this manner of operating in their repertoire.
