Nesting

January 24th 2013

0.38 mins

Have you ever wondered why women get involved in disastrous relationships more often than men? They meet a guy, fall in love and proceed to hand over the contents of their bank account to pay for his child support and parking tickets, and then are shocked when Prince Charming leaves.  After hearing cases like this for years, I've decided that all too often, a woman's need to nest outweighs her otherwise good judgment.  Is this a story that's familiar to you?  How has 'the need to nest' affected your decisions?  Any lessons to share?
