Can you give me some more background information on the issue at hand?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

In my past I feel I've been let down by so many guys that when a good guy comes along I get scared so easily that I push them away. It's a kind of I'll dump you before you can dump me thing. I want to trust guys but its very hard to when you've been let down so many times.

Has it been a matter of of poor selection when you choose to date someone? What draws you to these guys that let you down?
