The Approach-Avoidance Dance of Codependent Couples More often, though, two codependent people get together.
As I just alluded to, one likes to step forth and do most anything and everything for the other. She is the giver while she attracts a man more than happy to take and take.

After all, together, you can create and enjoy a feast.
Then again, and this might be more difficult for you to fathom, your partner might have left you because that person did not see you as capable of having the healthy give and take kind of relationship he or she desired.
