4 reasons good people end up in bad relationships

12 April 2016, 19:45 Shakila Aliivitsa

Nairobi - Why do good people end up in bad relationships?

Thinking they can bring out the good in someone

Good guys are those people who choose to see the best in everyone. They will make excuses for all the wrong things that this person who is clearly not good for them deserves another chance. They will see the ten cons and the one pro will make up for it. They keep searching for the good over and over again until they can no longer look back at starting over. By the time they realize that what they had was a lost cause from the beginning, they are already tied down.

Good people have the tendency to get attached to their bad partner’s affiliations

Their friends, children, and mostly their family; they want to continue sticking around selflessly to make the relationship work not just for them but for the other people involved as well. Even if their partner keeps disappointing from their bad deeds, he or she will focus maybe on the family that appreciates them and loves them already or the children that treat them like a parent already. They no longer stay in the relationship just for themselves.

They know the desperate situation the other person might be in

 The dependency that happens in most relationships and if not that, maybe an addiction or dire financial straits. They get so good at always bailing this person out that they accept it as part of that relationship. For some, they see it as them having a relationship where they are important to the other person at least. That is why they stick around and if the bad guy knows how to pull the right strings with groveling and sweet words; that good guy is hooked. You will not see them leave any time soon.

If you can be credited with the fact that you changed someone for the better, that is a plus for some people

Hoping that you will be the reason someone will say, ‘You made so and so change’ is the reason a lot of people are in the type of relationship they are in as well as marriages. You want the drunkard to stop drinking and become pious. You want the one that used to wear indecently and blow chimneys out of themselves is now wife material because of you. Yeap, that does it for a lot of people.
