    secretly drawn to men.....

    Author Bob Grant, a therapist, says that we may discover
    that we are secretly drawn to men who expose areas in our
    lives that we need to work on.

    "They push your buttons," Bob says. "The men you date or
    marry will expose your unresolved issue - always.

    May I know the the meanings of those highlighted in red above?

    ***NOT A TEACHER***(1) secretly drawn to men = These ladies don't understand why they find certain men so attractive. (2) expose areas = These men (by their words or actions) make these ladies admit to themselves that they have personal problems that need fixing. (3) THEY PUSH YOUR BUTTONS = A very popular expression in the United States. It means that someone says a word or does something because he/she wants to make you angry or do something. "Don't let anyone push your buttons" = Don't lose your self-control when someone does something like that to you.
