i blame it on the men. here is my theory.
if you are a really attractive woman, guys hit on you all the time. and the more guys hit on you the more opportunites you have to be in a bad relationship. and because its a fact that most guys cheat or have cheated, a beautiful girl that is in a relationship more than an average girl have a higher chance of having emotional issues.

It's just you. It's more a general mentality that I haven't cared enough about to research the history of, but it is somewhat market based. Women in general are raised to be materialistic and taught that beauty is where there value lies. You are an attractive female how many times as a little girl did you hear "Oh look how pretty you are." or some told you mother "Look how pretty she is, she's going to grow up to be a beautiful woman" or something to that effect? How many times do you recall anyone saying "Oh wow she looks smart and will grow up to have a great self worth and make a difference in the world."? At best little boys are cute or handsome, that doesn't sound very exciting or even worth too much, but grow up to be beautiful wow that sounds nice. Then you get older and look at all the other girls that look good and think is she prettier than me, because looks are the only value people have placed on you it's a pretty competition because deeper in your mind you feel that is all you have to offer in a relationship. Despite your many other accomplishments it's looks that you feel you rely on. Since you have limited self worth it's easier for manipulative guys to get you and then you have a bad relationship.
When a pretty girl walks in the room all the girls check her out and judge her immediately (guys don't tell them to do that, they do it on their own).
Also, if you are in bad relationships remember you chose the partner. You can't blame a guy for going out with a pretty girl. I can't stand how girls get mad at us because they make bad decisions. You had a bad boyfriend, but did he have a bad girlfriend? In life everyone is looking out for their own, that includes you.
So, If in a relationship you have a bad boyfriend and he has a good girlfriend who made the bad decision?
Now, back full circle every one of those problems from the development of self worth to the physical appearance competition, to bad relationships in the fault of the woman.
So, feel free to blame men for your own mistakes and insecurities, but that is like the fat kid blaming the ice cream.
Unattractive women have relationships and date men, so there is your solid evidence that your self worth isn't all in your looks, it is you who place it there, just as it is you who chose who you date. You can blame your development on the women in your past, but your current problems came from your own poor decision making skills and you are the one to blame for them.
