Some girls, maybe not very many, have a high need for drama.
But let me be more precise. They have a very high need for continuous attention. They have a high need for control and to manipulate men.
A girl moves to Florida. She gets a new boyfriend. After a few weeks her new boyfriend wants to spend a little more time with his boyz.
Girl calls/facetimes old boyfriend in Michigan. "Come down here, I am lonely."
Girl tells new boyfriend that old boyfriend cannot live without her, so he better start playing momma-may-I and kissing her hindmost.
Old boyfriend rings door-bell.
New boyfriend stabs him and clueless, old-boyfriend bleeds out on the front porch after traveling 1200 miles to be with his girl. He was 16.
It would be interesting to see if her inter-personal skills were learned from her mother. That would be an interesting chart, the relationships between the women who are the pivots in incidents of young, male-on-male violence.
