Do you fancy yourself a knight in shining armor? Are you a sucker for damsels in distress? Do you like coming to your partner's "rescue?" Do women with a sob story make you feel protective? Do you have a pattern of getting involved with waifs and distressed damsels du jour and set out to prove that "you're not like all the other guys?"

Do you believe that your crisis-ridden partner "can't live without you?" Do you need to feel like a "hero?" Are you a woman who has a pattern of getting involved with men who have crazy, unstable and abusive exes? Do you try to show these men "you're not like all the other women who hurt him?" Are you a rescuer of rescuers?

If so, tune into Shrink4Men Radio on Monday, October 24, 2011 at 9pm EST when Dr Tara Palmatier of Shrink4Men will be discussing the unhealthy relationship patterns in which many white knights, heroes, knights in shining armor, rescuers, fixers, professional caretakers and rescuers of rescuers find themselves stuck. We'll also touch upon the concepts of hostile dependency, codependency, and parentified children.
