Some people don’t realize they’re living in a house of cards. They may be involved in some high-risk affair. The kind of thing where most would realize, it’s inevitable they’ll be caught. But they think the situation is stable!
Some people like the angst and the risk and the potential of beating the odds. For example, I have seen a number of people get sexually involved with their best friend’s child. I have seen men do it, but I have seen women do it too. One of them wrote me for advice: I’m Having Sex With My Friend’s Son.
Do you feed on angst in some way? What do you think drives this?
