The desire to save the relationship after breaking up is a sign of possible mental illness. Scientists from the University of Auckland conducted a study with the participation of 860 volunteers. Each of the subjects at least once broke off the relationship with your loved one.
Volunteers shared with the experts the reasons for the breakup. Also, people suggested to pass a test on the definition of narcissism, Machiavellianism (disregard morality and psychopathy.
It turned out that these three abnormalities are much more frequently met among people interested in pursuing any kind of relationship even after separation. Scientists revealed the motivation for this behavior. Men usually retain friendships with exes for the sake of the possible sex, and women because of emotional attachment to the person.
