You look for broken men because they are needy, and if they need you, you have a role in their lives.

You need to look for men who don’t NEED you but LOVE you instead. It’s a common female flaw to mix up nurturing a child with an adult relationship built on equality and trust. The male equivalent is a man who finds a woman in need of protection (from her own self-destructiveness). Need is very different from love!
