She does not want to be hurt like she saw her father hurt her mother. However, at the same time, she also romanticizes about men and wants to be swept off her feet and get married, which according to Dr. Nielsen is normal. She explains, “A poorly fathered daughter is often unaware of her tendencies because they are all she knows. She is often too clingy, dependent and jealous” (Nielsen). Mate’s clinginess is revealed when she romanticizes about men and obsesses over them.
In Their Eyes Were Watching God, Janie’s faults made her dependent emotionally towards men, but independent when finding her own happy ending throughout the book.

In “Tell all the Truth but tell it slant” she says “The Truth must dazzle gradually or every man be blind-” (1,7-8). Dickinson has had her heart broken so many times by men and it was always delivered quickly and cruelly. Dickinson might have felt that if it was broken to her more gently and kindly she might not feel this way and feel so blindsided by her unrequited love.

John “had recently married a wife whom he loved more than his life” (Chaucer, “The Miller’s Tale” 35-36). Since this carpenter is the most sentimentally involved with Alisoun, he ends up the most betrayed and embarrassed by her disloyalty.

Meanwhile, Nicholas begs her for sex by yelling “sweetheart, love me right away or I’ll die, so help me God!” (Chaucer, “The Miller’s Tale” 94-95).
Isabella too is in constant danger because of Manfred’s obsession to marry her. “I desired you once before,” said Manfred angrily, ... “In short, Isabella, since I cannot give you my son, I offer you myself.” Manfred’s angry tone accentuates the danger that is placed upon Isabella as the perception is given that he is forcing himself upon her.
