Dealing With The Drama Queen
It's no secret that women need social interaction, feedback, and validation of their worth in a relationship; however, drama queens have low levels of self-esteem and self-confidence and consequently feels insecure. To counter these feelings of insecurity they will spend a large proportion of their lives creating situations in which they become the center of attention.
Drama queens make the worst kind of girlfriends for a lot of reasons. Drama queens have the emotional age of a young child and will often exhibit temper tantrums, deceit, lying and manipulation. These manipulative women often come from dysfunctional families and will exploit the suffering of others to gain attention for themselves. One of the most obvious warning signs that you're with a drama queen is when you're constantly being told things like "look at me."
Drama queens suddenly develop mysterious illnesses at the most inconvenient times, like just before you and your buddies are about to go watch the big game or have a guys night out. They are master manipulators and somehow always manage to get their way, whether it’s by guilt-tripping (emotional-bullying), sabotage, or just cold-hearted calculation.
These women like it when other people fail, particularly your family and friends. They may also exploit your relationship with family members and friends, manipulating others with guilt and distorting perceptions and will cause you to suffer emotional injuries. Every incident or opportunity with this type of woman, no matter how insignificant, is exaggerated, distorted and elevated to dramatic, crisis proportions.
The longer a man is in this situation, the more he will grow accustomed to these behaviors and stay in the relationship far longer than he should. Don’t expect to be able to live any kind of normal life outside of your relationship with a drama queen. Ask yourself if your woman displays any of these red flags. If you answered yes, you may want to consider the fact that she’s nuts!
