Level 3: Conscious Choices
The last level of decision making about a mate is at the conscious level. This is the internal thought that goes along with choosing to date one man over another. Some women deny that they consciously choose a particular type of man but, if they were honest with themselves they realize that social status, popularity, money, possessions, looks, jobs, ability to provide and other factors do play some role in choosing a mate, however it is also something that can be glossed over or rationalized when the subconscious and the conscious are at odds.
This is why a woman will choose a down and out, abusive, emotionally unavailable man over a kind, caring and responsible man if she has the hardwiring and the subconscious input that overrides the reality that her family, friends and her own conscious is providing.
Getting to the bottom of why women choose bad partners takes work and effort. A relationship counselor, life coach or a therapist is essential in helping to uncover how women make bad choices in men and how they can correct the problem at all three levels.
