“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kenya Moore has always been very open about her troubled relationship with her mother and now the reality star and business woman opens up and explains how her troubled relationship with her mother has impacted her love life.
Kenya took to her Bravo blog and revealed she was proposed to a whopping seven times, but turned down each proposal because she has a nasty habit of falling for emotionally unavailable men. Kenya writes:
I fully understand that there has been a void in my life because of this, which relates to my romantic relationships. I have never had any issues with falling in love, dating, sustaining long-term relationships, or attracting great men in my life, who have loved me unconditionally. Although I have had now seven proposals of marriage, I have never accepted one.
As my Aunt pointed out, I choose “unavailable men.” I’ve never wanted a married man or one that is in a relationship. I acknowledge I have a pattern of falling for men who are emotionally unavailable, physically unavailable in terms of distance, or categorically unavailable with respect to time or where they are in life. For instance, some men know they are not ready for marriage. Perhaps my pattern is that I unconsciously seek rejection or failure with these men, which sadly mimics my mother’s relationship.
Kenya then goes on to say that she really wants to have a baby and although she is with “someone special” right now, she no longer has any interest in pressuring another man to marry her.
