This is a theory which is often corroborated by human female behavior. While not politically correct, many males of the species believe that there is a strong possibility that the theory is valid.

The theory is a possible partial explanation for Just Friends Syndrome, a syndrome often observed in males, but almost exclusively those which are intelligent, sensitive, and caring. A typical manifestation is when a female of the species dates an "asshole" and something bad happens; then she calls up her male friend, who is termed a "nice guy" and possibly suffers from Just Friends Syndrome, and uses him as an emotional comfort provider.

Prole: So at which point do the women "grow up" (for lack of a better term) and stop dating the biggest manipulative jerks they can find? I too have seen what Dhahn describes far too many times, though it's mostly been with early 20-somethings.
