You purposefully choose people with problems and, in turn, avoid your own.
You become obsessed with fixing them, making it work and making excuses for them.

They are those with traits of “self-defeating personality disorder,” or “masochistic personality disorder.”It makes sense -- you have to be somewhat self-destructive to enter into such a high-risk game.

You knowingly hurt those around you, and then expect them to forgive you.
When you fall for the sweet talkers and the conniving instead of the wholesome and honest.
It's when you can't see a good thing that's in front of you because you're too busy looking at some idealistic dream scenario that will leave you as thirsty and disoriented as any mirage.
