Why Do I Always Seem to Date Jerks?

Kara Pound Kara Pound • 9/25/14

So you habitually date contemptibly obnoxious men. Why are you blaming the men rather than yourself? The truth of the matter is, there must be something you’re doing to attract these jerk specimens. What are your priorities when looking for a guy? If you place genuine kindness above looks and money, chances are you won’t be dating jerks anymore. If you are more concerned with the kind of car he drives than his interests in books, movies and music, then you’re probably going to find a guy who is self-obsessed and image conscious.

And you may not want to hear this, but jerks usually prey on the weak. If you act like a meek, ditzy girl, then you are going to attract men who like to maintain control and power in a relationship. Remain vigilant when looking for a potential mate. Be yourself and prioritize what it is you’re looking for. Wouldn’t you rather be by yourself than with someone who doesn’t treat you well?
