While we may not be able to rid the world of jerks, we can definitely rid our lives of jerks if we keep our wits about ourselves and don’t let them get too close.
It’s all about awareness and seeing clearly, even if the potential jerk is the hottest, sexiest person you’ve ever met.
In my experience, people who are jerks are jerks to everyone.
While their level of just how awful they can be fluctuates, their inner jerk is always there.
If you take it slow, it will give you a chance to hopefully see the jerkery before you start having feelings for them. If you want to see just how jerky the person you’re dating really is, then don’t let any inappropriate behavior slide. If they can’t see that what they’ve done is completely jerky, then voila!
They’re a total jerk and you can make a clean break before you get sucked in too deep.
We’ve all muttered “what a jerk” or worse about someone we’ve known or dated, but what truly defines a jerk?
It’s easy to toss this label on someone who cuts you off in traffic or doesn’t say thank you when you hold the door open for them. But actually drawing this conclusion about someone you are dating has much higher stakes. So whether one is male or female, there are three core qualities of being a “jerk”: (1) limited insight, (2) poor emotional controls, and (3) inadequate relationship skills.
Women are sometimes drawn to assh*les because they can be exciting and keep us on our toes.
But not all realize they're dating a total jerk until all the signs are laid out right in front of them.
