An affliction making one dependent upon a woman who he is dating or married to. Symtoms include: inability to stand up for yourself, giving into to all her "bitching", crawling back to her after every argument, taking blame/apologizing even when you are not at fault.
A man is talking to his girlfriend on the phone.
She suspects he is not paying attention to her and is no longer willing to talk to him and hangs up.
The boyfriend, confused, insistently calls her back leaving apologetic messages on her machine as-well-as sends her gifts, fearing that if he doesn't she will leave him.
