We've either posed the question ourselves, or have heard someone else ask it: "Why do I always attract the same (and wrong) guy?" See, the problem isn't that you're attracting the wrong guy. The trouble occurs when you actually fall for the man.

1. The Family Guy
On paper, the Family Guy appears to be a husband in training. His dedication to his mother, dad, and nephews are aww-inducing. He is the type to introduce you to his parents in the first month of dating -- a move, you of course, find flattering.
But underneath his commitment to his family, there's a desperate need for validation. His thirst for approval from each relative is so deep that if for any reason you don't fit their requirements, you don't fit his either. Those are the kind of high standards that would never turn a blind eye to that Spring Break butterfly tattoo on your ankle.
One can't help but be sympathetic toward the Family Guy. After all, he's the one living with a constant desire to please others, while placing his true feelings on a dusty shelf. But what does this mean for you? Despite your attempts to down endless amounts of Cuban food, your efforts and merits will never be enough. He'll take his father's approval over true love any day. And how could you ever compete with that?
