Let's take Hilliary and Bill Clinton.
Both of them are utterly corrupt career politicians, pathological liars and sinfully greedy with their desire for money and power. Their relationship is associative mating, and not in a good way. But it's still associative mating.
I know a retired man who went to high school with Hillary Clinton. Strangely, he told me she was a very nice person in those days. But that didn't last for long.
And as soon as Bill and Hillary met each other - wham! And the country has been paying for it ever since.
I had a man I know, who spent his career as a political consultant, tell me he's known only one honest politician in his life. The rest had sex, money and drug problems.
Hillary Clinton is a drunken lesbian and Bill Clinton is a sexual predator and rapist. Do tell! And what drugs has Bill Clinton done? None? HAR HAR HAR!!! Next you'll tell me Duyba Shrub wasn't an alcoholic and cokehead and that his wife didn't murder teenagers in a car wreck!
One of Bill's former paramours said Bill used to wear her nightie and play the saxophone, and told her Hillary had several abortions and had Chelsea only for political reasons - to convince the electorate she was "motherly."
Both Bill and Hillary sound close to being sociopathic.
Bill has something Hillary does not and never will - charm and charisma. However, these are not good things. "Charm" actually means to cast as spell on someone, just like in magic. That's what a "charm" means. Just like the charm bracelet some of the girls wore in grade and middle school.
Let's put it this way: Hitler had enormous charm he directed toward women - and they fell for him.
With his charm and charisma Bill ended up being quite popular with women - but only women who are mental cases fall for it. Look at Monica Lewinsky, who thought Bill Clinton was going to dump his wife for this unattractive, overweight JAP (when I was in college some guys held a party and put a sign on their door: "No JAPS and fat chicks").
I've know a few men who had charm and charisma. And every one of them screwed up their lives - and did it because of their inability to keep their dicks in their pants. And every woman I saw them get involved with them was mental.
The only thing that explains the relationship of Bill and Hillary Clinton is that each recognized the monster in each other - and were attracted to it. That's associative mating, for good or bad.
