Cupid’s Advice:

More often than not, good girls are the ones who end up with bad boys.  If you find yourself in this type of relationship, Cupid is here to help break your bad boy habit.

1. Recognize the problem: Try to understand why you keep running back to this type of guy.  Psychotherapist Caroline Presno advises on Yahoo! Personals to write a list of the bad things your partner has done to you.  Put the list up on the wall next to a picture of him to associate his face with with his actions.

2. It’s not your job to save him: Many women think they can rescue a bad boy.  Unfortunately, it most likely won’t happen.  Furthermore, continuing on this path might only hurt you in the end.

3. Build your self-esteem: Chances are, you continue to run after the wrong type of guy because you aren’t happy with yourself.  According to relationship writer, Allan Tan, a woman “usually does not like herself and that lack of self-respect causes her to settle for a man that is less than what she deserves.”
