That’s according to CounsellingResource.com readers, many of whom have found themselves in relationships with what psychologist Dr Joseph Carver has dubbed “The Loser”. With over 170 comments, Dr Carver’s article about The Loser has become one of our most popular; we’re opening up a new discussion thread for readers interested in Dr Carver’s insights.
This new discussion thread is now the third prompted by Dr Carver’s article that asks simply Are You Dating a Loser?
In the first discussion thread about The Loser (“Are You Dating a Loser?”), readers shared their reactions to the article and sought Dr Carver’s feedback, which he has been generously providing to readers for over a year now. So many comments were submitted that we opened a second discussion thread (“More Personal Replies from Psychologist About Relationships with Losers”), but that one has now attracted now more than 90 comments, so we’ve had to open a third.
It sounds to us like Dr Carver is on to something — that certainly seems to be the view of the vast majority of readers leaving comments, who so often report recognising in their own relationships exactly what Dr Carver describes as the behaviour of The Loser.
So once again, fire up your keyboard if you’d like to put a relationship question to him, and leave your question in the comments section of this blog posting. When Dr Carver gets a chance, he can take a look at them and let you know what he thinks.
UPDATE: Dr Carver’s article has once again proven so popular that we’ve had to open a new discussion thread for new comments: “Overwhelming Response to Threads on Relationship Losers”. Also, Dr Carver now has his own regular column here at CounsellingResource.com, so just head on over to Ask the Psychologist for feedback on all things psychological!
