As we get older, it can be enlightening to review how and why past relationships have been less than raging successes, even as we wake up every day hoping and believing that the best is yet to come (we sort of have to believe that, don't we?) Before listing the reasons my relationships have failed, I have to say that probably the most common one -- infidelity -- isn't among mine.

I tanked most of my relationships, consciously or otherwise. Whether the craziness has been real and certifiable (bipolar, borderline personality) or just, well, conventional crazy (e.g., the girlfriend who kept telling me she was "damaged" and until I realized, she sure was), hooking up with a crazy person decreases the odds it will work. Relationships fail because one party just can't or won't connect emotionally.
