  •  It's a strange dynamic.. (1+ / 0-)

    I do not think it begins with being attracted to abusers.  They are predators, and hunt for their victims.  There is  body posture, and/or a way of speaking that signals the predator.  I'm not exactly sure what that is.. Maybe a vulnerability.  But predators can read it, and go after their prey.  

    I think it's why the worst of these guys go right on stalking a woman after she's realized who he is and want to leave..  

    Maybe it's a remanent of a survival instinct gone haywire.  

    Like for example, male animals who kill the young of the female, so as to become the dominant male. Wild stallions do that. Male cats do it too.   Maybe the guy who threatens to kill the kids, to control the woman,  is exhibiting that kind of drive or complusion towards alpha males status.
