Women who are in counseling or therapy

Surely a woman who is in counseling is a woman whom you should support and help in her efforts to improve herself, right?


Here’s the problem: on some level, a woman in counseling is fixated on past negative events, and is incapable of fixing herself.

Which is problematic, because women are usually the ones who are the nurturers and fixers who pride themselves on making things good again.

If she can’t fix herself without the aid of somebody else, you very likely have a high maintenance woman on your hands. She’s a negative-minded person who will focus on what’s going wrong in her life rather than on what’s right.

She’s a black hole of negative emotions, and she will suck you into it.

Bottom line: women who are in counseling are not mentally healthy, and the vast majority are drama queens and professional victims (“poor me!”). They are very adept at playing that “victim” card. Date these women at your own risk… and if you do decide to marry, all I can say is “good luck!

Bonus tip #1: A woman who’s in counseling is normally also on antidepressants.

Bonus tip #2: One in three American women, and twice as many women than men, have taken antidepressants.

Bonus tip #3: You think a woman PMSing is bad? Wait until you’re dating a woman on antidepressants and her pill bottle runs out. You’ll need to sleep with one eye open and a helmet on ;)

    So a woman who is in counseling for PTSD, who was brave enough to admit she needed help, then got help to improve her life and her relationships is not healthy? How about the same for women with eating disorders (how many beautiful thin women have those I wonder)? The answer to both questions is NO. People who admit that they need help and get it improve their relationship with themselves and others are much more likely to adapt successfully to life’s inevitable challenges as their live’s progress. Seeking council only broadens one’s perspective, after all isn’t that why your site exists?

      Hey Steve,

      The problem with your analysis is that my article references women who are in therapy as a result of their *negative thinking*, not an extreme outlier condition like posttraumatic stress disorder.

      I agree with you, a woman who admits she needs help needs encouragement, but how many women actually get fixed who go through a therapist? Versus how many men get shafted emotionally and legally from women who are unable to control their own emotions?
