    Are Women Attracted To Jerks?

    Here's how the jerk spell works: women meet a jerk and in some twisted way are seduced by his confidence, charm, and passion. Women don't see these as the disguises they are: confidence is really arrogance, charm comes from him being a player, and his passion is being the center of his own universe.

    Angela, a 25-year-old newlywed, had this to say on the topic: I was at many times a serial jerk-dater, mostly because it was exciting and dramatic and I had something I thought was special. ... When I met [my husband] his niceness scared me and I worried very often that I was not attracted to him enough. I worried that it would die off. But I did not play to those worries or insecurities; I let the road take me where it wanted to take me. It was not long before I grew a deep-rooted passion for him, something that made his touch the sweetest I had ever known.

    It's the reason that I've lost interest in dating anymore. Harleys are MUCH more fun!

    My husband is not a jerk, but I dated plenty of them.

    Self esteem has a lot to do with women dating and staying with jerks.

    Surprisingly, some do. The catty ones have the lowest. Believe me, I was in a sorority during college.

    My two cents . . . The worst thing a guy can be when he meets a woman is boring. Boring and nice are commonly correlated. Women don't like jerks, but they hate boring more.

    On note with this topic though I think the above mention of nice guys being too boring and drive the ladies away at first has some merit.

    Re: Are Women Attracted To Jerks?

    I dont know what some women think when they start dating jerk guys. It's kind of funny because every other guy can see that you are dating a jerk. Just waiting for you to get your heart broken so they can be there when you fall. Girls will keep going back for more from the same jerk guy again and again and I still haven't figured out why...But on the nice guy side, girls seem to look past a lot of nice guys probably because as was said earlier girls just don't like how 'boring' a nice relationship is. But in the end I have noticed that nice guys do win in the long run.
