Why do I like people with issues?

Posted by katekite on June 28, 2002, at 12:25:16

I really like reading/posting here.

Also, I noticed in the past when dating, that I liked only guys who had had some hardship in their lives. It seemed that most men were so shallow. They'd had it too easy.

Similarly my best female friends always turn out to have something going on. I would think at the beginning they were completely in control, easy going, never had it rough, etc. Never true for the women who turn out to be my closest friends.

It just seems like people who've never had adversity are shallow and boring.

Is that really true or do I not let myself get to know people who've always been completely healthy, for some psychological reason of my own? Like that I need to be needed. Or that I am insecure that my own issues won't be ok or something? Or just can't identify with health?

I'm curious what others experiences are?
