Using Psychology As A Weapon

"Do you think you’re attracted to emotionally unavailable women?" she had asked.

She was sure he was still enmeshed in his parents. By contrast, she said, she had made great strides in this area.

She was wise and all-knowing. He was but a helpless infant she was tiring of.

She used psychology as a weapon. She had no training in the field but she’d had years of therapy and she had read a few books.

Sunday night she’d suggested he talk things over with his therapist and then call her.

"What does your therapist say about that?"

What a common question in relationships. He feared that even he had said that, not just in his current relationship, but in previous ones.
