Some men compartmentalize their lives where they are able to [have relationships with] various women, but they cannot commit themselves to one woman because it’s too emotionally scary,” Dr. Thomas explains. “So some of these men are saying to women, ‘Look, I’ll give you 10 percent of my time, take it or leave it.’ And some lonely women are saying, ‘I’ll take it.’

Regarding “Your Best Friend’s Man“: ‘Behavior specialists say that in many cases, the back-stabbing best friend is facing some self-esteem issues and may want to steal her friend’s man because she doesn’t feel that she deserves a man of her own. “A lot of these [forbidden relationships] have common roots, which is low self-esteem,” says Dr. Thomas of Los Angeles. “Some women get involved in these triangle situations because they don’t feel that they’re good enough to have their own man. They feel that they just don’t deserve a whole man to themselves.”‘
