If you’ve been attracting womanizers and you are concerned, you really should be.
Womanizers are men who manipulate women into believing that the only thing they have to offer is their looks or their body.
They often use flattery and charm to win over a woman’s affection, but ultimately, they’re only interested in one thing: themselves.
So why do you keep attracting these types of people?
Is it something about you that draws them in?
Or is it just bad luck?
But before we look into the reasons why this may be happening, keep this in mind: You are not to blame for their behavior.
However, it’s worth taking a look at your own behaviors and patterns in relationships.
Why Do I Attract Womanizers? 8 Reasons You Attract Unfaithful Men
1. You Always Ignore Red Flags
Womanizers are masters of manipulation and often use subtle tactics to deceive their partners.
But there are always red flags, whether it’s constant flattery, being too smooth, always dodging questions about other relationships, seeming too good to be true, or inconsistent behavior.
Red flags are warning signs that something is not right in a relationship or with someone, and it’s essential to pay attention to them.
If you find yourself consistently ignoring red flags in relationships, reflect on why.
Are you afraid of being alone?
Do you have low self-esteem?
Are you too trusting?
Learning to recognize red flags and trust your instincts will help you avoid falling for the charms of a womanizer.
2. You Don’t Value Yourself Enough
One major reason you might be drawing womanizers is a lack of self-esteem or self-worth.
This isn’t about blaming yourself but rather about understanding why you seem to attract these types of men.
Womanizers tend to prey on those who undervalue themselves because these women are often more susceptible to the flattery and false affections that womanizers offer.
Do you seek validation from others?
Do you often compromise your own needs, wants, or beliefs to keep a man interested?
A lack of self-worth could lead you to accept less than you deserve in a relationship, and womanizers can sense this.
They realize that they can take advantage of your insecurities to serve their own needs while offering little in return.
3. You’re Too Focused on Being in a Relationship
Sometimes, the reason we attract womanizers is that we are too focused on being in a relationship.
We may feel pressure from society, our family, or our peers to find a partner, and this can lead us to make poor choices and overlook red flags.
I get it; sometimes it’s tough being single while everyone else around you seems to be in a relationship.
But constantly seeking validation and self-worth through being in a relationship will only attract the wrong kind of men.
When you are too desperate to be in a relationship, you may overlook important red flags and end up with a womanizer.
4. The Allure of the Bad Boy
Womanizers aren’t just any kind of man; they are often the elusive “bad boy” type.
Their charm, confidence, and mysteriousness are attractive to women who crave excitement and adventure in their lives.
They know how to charm and woo you, making you feel like the most important person in the room.
They know what to say to make you feel special and desired, and this can be highly addictive.
Behind this charming exterior lies someone who is manipulative and self-serving.
But you’ll be so drawn in by their charisma and confidence that you may overlook any red flags.
Don’t be fooled; the bad boy persona is often a cover for their true intentions.
5. Your Own Insecurities
Sometimes, we attract what we think we deserve.
If you have insecurities about yourself or your relationships, this can manifest in attracting the wrong type of men.
For instance, if you believe deep down that you are not worthy of a committed and loving relationship, then you may subconsciously attract partners who confirm this belief.
Your own self-doubt can lead to settling for less than what you deserve, which can make you an easy target for a womanizer.
6. The Thrill of the Unattainable
It’s human nature to want what we can’t have.
And womanizers, with their “hard-to-get” attitude, are definitely alluring.
Their mixed signals and elusive behavior create a rollercoaster of emotions that some women find hard to resist.
But this type of relationship is never healthy and will leave you feeling drained and insecure.
When we are constantly chasing the unattainable, it’s difficult to see the reality of the situation.
7. You Don’t Care About Being The Only Woman in His Life
Womanizers often have multiple partners at the same time, and they are skilled at hiding it.
But for some women, this may not be an issue.
If you’re okay with being one of many in a man’s life, then you may not see any problem with being with a womanizer.
If this is the case, it’s no surprise that you keep attracting womanizers.
8. You Don’t Have Smart Friends
As the saying goes, “Birds of a feather flock together.”
If most of your friends have a history of falling for womanizers, you are more likely to attract them as well.
This is because we tend to mimic the behaviors and traits of those around us.
Even if your friends don’t have a history with womanizers, having a group of smart and supportive friends can help you see red flags that you may have missed on your own.
But if all your friends and family are as blind to red flags as you are, then it’s time to widen your social circle and find friends who will have your back and help you see things clearly.
Remember, It’s Not Your Fault
I must emphasize that it’s not your fault if you attract womanizers.
You are not responsible for their behavior, but you can take control of your own.
Recognizing patterns and behaviors in relationships can help you avoid these types of men in the future, and the following tips will help:
Take some time to get to know yourself.
What are you really looking for in a relationship?
What are your values and boundaries?
Knowing yourself better will help you understand what you truly want and need in a partner.
- Set Boundaries
Setting healthy boundaries is crucial in any relationship.
Know what behavior you will not tolerate, and stick to it.
- Trust Your Gut
Your gut instinct is usually right, so if something doesn’t feel right, trust that feeling and listen to it.
- Take Your Time
Don’t rush into a relationship just because you’re afraid of being alone.
Take your time to get to know someone before committing to them fully.
- Focus on Self-Love
Remember that the most important relationship is the one with yourself.
Spend time nurturing and loving yourself, and this will attract healthy and fulfilling relationships in the future.
- Seek Advice
Talk to friends or family about your new flame.
Sometimes, an outsider’s perspective can offer invaluable insights because they are not the ones caught up in the excitement and emotions of a new relationship.
You have the power to attract the kind of love you deserve.
It starts with understanding why you’ve been attracting the wrong type and then taking steps to change it.
I hope this article helps you to achieve that.
