This youthful development was a continuing personal struggle when I was a teenager through my twenties. Why did girls gravitate so much to the jerks and selfish abusive boyfriends? I couldn’t figure it out.
Once I saw both sides I eventually learned the sad answer of why this happens and my life has been much better for it, but for years and years it left me perplexed. I feel sorry for Conrad because he is destined to walk this path … as well as millions of other teen boys and girls. Some things are just hard-wired.
