Toast Or Men

I have not read What Was I Thinking: 58 Bad Boyfriend Stories though it sounds like it might be entertaining. The interview with the authors made me laugh:
Why do the women settle for these men if they know they aren't the right fit?

Barbara: That's the thing, I don't know. You don't walk into a store and see a broken toaster and go "Aww, well, when I get it home it will start working." You don't go "Oh, that dress — the sleeve is falling off. But I can fix it at home."

I just think it comes down to third person perspective. Not that I appreciated this excuse when I felt I was one of the nice guys that couldn't get a girl. I just think it is really hard to see when you are in a bad relationship because people make up all sorts of excuses about their own life. It's not only with significant others but with jobs or friends.
