I'm thinking of those people who seem to go from one car-crash "relationship" to another, where they know what they're walking into
but can't seem to stop themselves.
I understand that if you find you've invested a lot of time and emotional energy into a relationship before you find they're an arse, it can be difficult to walk away
It seems to me that Jenn would be in the first category if
she were to "forgive" - or try to change, but with little hope of success - a person she saw was an arse on first meeting them. I really can't see that admiring someone on the screen or in magazines - where they are inevitably playing a part, even if it's a version of themselves - is the same as building a true relationship (before the 'partner' reveals their true selves).
