XV asked on Do You Ignore Rejection:
“What could explain getting attached to someone who keeps rejecting you?”
I’m not sure there is one answer. My first thought was that the person my be a glutton for punishment. “Gluttony” makes me think of Jupiter and inflation in general. So that’s one explanation. The person my be so overconfident, they can’t believe they’d be unwanted.
Another person might be high on Neptune. They fantasize a relationship and believe they can make what exists in their imagination exist in real life. This also seems a type of inflation. Their fantasy trumps the other person’s reality.
I can think of other scenarios that are more Plutonian. The attached person plays out some kind of psychodrama where they cast the other person on the role of a rejecting parent, or something of that nature.
Last, a person may enjoy the challenge. They persist in hopes of conquering the other person.
Does anyone else have ideas?
