I agree with both temy and the original poster, girls like to be teased, its true, women like to have these drama type situations because it seems as though women have something to prove, or that they like conflict because it creates spice. Think about it, if every thing you said, a girl agreed with, wouldn't it get boring, wouldn't it become monotonous, though women do take it to the extreme which is why I think they go for a-holes, because a-holes will push them.
However, the one I do not agree with, is the one about loving a girl no matter how bad it gets, a relationship or dating is built on trust and respect, and if a guy is being disrespected, then he has a right to speak up with the girl. Nobody needs to be treated unfairly or harshly which is why alot of nice guys have trouble with women. Women like to push buttons and sometimes women take it too far.
It also comes down to the individual woman; some women like and crave the attention that many guys give them based upon either thier up-bringing or personality. Other women, dis-like men like this and reject the unwanted attention and therefore guarding themselves. Now, what I say may be wrong or right, I don't claim to have alot of experience, but notcing and listening to alot of my friends relationship problems both male and female this is what I think at least.
