  • well I sure dont
  • No way!I mostly always go for the nice guys.The nice ones are harder to find though:(
  • coursee not... maybee women that want to play around prefer jerkss lolz because after they throw them away it wont matter much
  • it depends on what they are looking for at the time. some just want good sex and look for jerks to give them the easy way out.
  • The immature and/or stupid ones do.
  • They don't! Although some people (women and men) tend to choose the same types who maybe aren't the best choices.
  • It's not that women prefer jerks, it's that jerks break down simple mental barriers and make the female feel, psychologically, that it's not as bad as it actually is. I used to be a jerk, I understand the ins and outs of it. Basically the idea is to be a good boyfriend for x amount of time and then at an opportune time slowly decrease how much you care about the relationship, yourself, etc. At some point the female blames herself and feels she can't do too much better or any better at all.
  • Not necessarily. I'm married to one of the absolutely nicest people I've met in my life.
  • No, I wouldnt think so. Women (like men) prefer a partner who, primarily, is good looking among other things. Not to say that all good looking people are jerks, but there is a lot of vanity related to having good looks. Add that to the fact that we live in a world where popular culture, fame and fortune is what everyone's after and you're bound to find many people who act the way jerks do.
  • I used to thrive on them... Now... I tell others how to avoid them and all the reasons why. They are hot and cool and mean and hot (Did I say hot?) and flirt too much and drink too much and sometimes even hit you a little... But at the end of the day... They consume you and when they are done... They very seldom stick around to carry you through without your own self esteem and self worth.
  • Not this one! I was married to one, and I do not want another one!
  • prefer them? no pick them? yes
  • Not any woman I know, myself included.
  • No, they prefer smooth, fluid motions.
  • Oh yeah. . We have a 50% divorce rate, don't we? .
  • I think some women would rather be with a man who others will not look at and try to chat up and will remain more loyal to them. Some women like to take their man out a lot but hate it if other women flirt with them. Often the jerks are more loving and commited.
  • Hell NO.....
  • not at all...they are just getting harder to avoid
  • Yes...Yes....and Yes... It's because jerks are cocky,and women mistake cockiness for confidence. Confidence is a good feature to have, it seems to turn women on and it makes the man more appealing. They act like they are the perfect man when they are not. They can manipulate the woman without her knowing it. Another fact of life is that there aren't many "nice guys" left in the world so women just settle for whatever jerk comes along. Dave&Amber
  • Of course they do. Jerks are masculine. Besides, most women are jerks.
  • No, they prefer rich, educated jerks. Otherwise, I'd be swamped with adoring women.
  • Then, I apologize for for my cynical remark. Really, I'm sorry. It wasn't meant for you. .
  • Not smart women...
  • Blood Hell No! Jerks are jerks.
  • I got rid of my first husband and stayed with my second. My first was a jerk. My second was anything but a jerk. If a woman is choosing jerks, she needs to look within herself to see why she is choosing the men she is choosing.
  • Yes because we like to be treated like sh*t ! No we do not like jerks there are just alot more jerks then nice guy's for us to choose from. The same can be said for bitchy women !
  • Women- No. Girls- Yes. I got told once by a GIRL that I took out on a date that I was "too nice, happy, and honest for her to go out with me again." I laughed at her. I laugh today when I think about it. Shit, I'm laughing my happy, nice, and honest ass off right now as I type this. =P
  • Yes they do, thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster / God / Whatever. Otherwise I'd never get a date.
  • I stay single cause of jerks...
  • I don't know about women, but I sure do enjoy them. If you go down to the corner of Mission and Garey you can get one for just twenty buc.......... oh wait...... I don't think we're talking about the same kind of jerk............ whoops. Uh... yeah... I think they do... ....gotta go! Bye!
  • No, they get taken in by jerks. That's what jerks do.
  • These are all people not taking responsibility for thier choices. Like everything else with everyone else change what you belive about yourself and then you will atract real men. Plainly real men do not aproach you because you are not offering what they are looking for. Another independant person that could stand alone through life and yet still be there to support each other.
  • Nope not me. I marred a truly wonderful man. Hes honest, loyal, a great dad to our kids, helps around the hosue, makes a a great living to provide for us, spoils me and spends all his time with his family. And to boot, hes soo sexy too=)
  • They prefer money and the men who are with that type of woman know that so they treat them like crap for playing wife or lover when they are really prostitutes.
  • Yes, and they prefer men with money because they're gold diggers.
  • Yes, all grown up women want to be treated badly because they are all exactly the same. (dripping sarcasm). What a monumentally stupid assumption.
  • I personally don't, but thats just me! I hate guys like that!
  • Most prefer people of value.
  • because it confirms that she is special if he likes her
  • Why are jerks attracted to women?
  • I just never understand women sometimes.
  • Because we are cool lol JK
  • i would love to know the answering why i attract losers and jerks
  • There are those who subconsciously believe that don't believe they deserve any better. It's a self-esteem issue inside.
  • If you understand how attraction works first of all, then you would understand why women are attracted to "so called jerks". Women are naturally attracted to men who display confidence and masculine qualities. Attraction is not a choice, women do not logically think things over to decide if she is attracted to a guy. If a woman is attracted to a man, even if he is a jerk, she will stay with him no matter what else happens, or how bad he treats her. The "so called jerks" display in extreme, the attitude and confident masuline qualitites that women are attracted to. On the flip side of things, women are not attracted to men who chase them around and act like pathetic wussies trying to win them over. This only makes women see that you lack self confidence, and will use and walk all over you.
  • Evolutionary....survival of the fittest. Women subconsciously want children who will be strong and survive so they look for men who possess those genes.
  • because they are assertive, confident, can take charge, and aggressive. good qualities in a potential father/family protector.
  • THE TRUTH HURTS - I LOVE BEING DOWNRATED. IT VALIDATES MY CLAIM. Ignore 'Anonymous'. It's a bullshit answer. The reason why they love us: 1) When we treat them like shit, they immediately see us like Rubik's cubes that need solving. It frustrates the shit out of them, but they keep trying. They're like the mouse with burned lips who keeps eating electrified cheese at the end of a maze because it just WON'T FREAKIN' LEARN. 2) We typically own every God damned thing and have lots of money, and so, they see us as a perfect substitute for the corrective daddy; someone who'll take care of them and forcefully teach them how to do the right thing. They need this because they're typically too lazy to do anything on their own, to include decision making. Well, that's just for the ones attracted to guys like myself. I guess the rest are worth having.
  • I do not think we can rationalize when we come to the law of attraction. However I guess you may have over generalized on this issue.
  • I dunno why don't we all ask Rhianna LOL. I don't think every girl is attracted to jerks but the one who are love the drama that the jerk creates 24/7. Self esteem plays a big part in this I assume if the woman can't stand up for herself and feels she needs a man who treats others with disrespect and cruelty it's just a show for her.
  • Jerks jerk it better.
  • Some women like the rough ride.
  • Because they're very confident.
  • A Jerk is sarcastic, mean, unforgiving and never misses an opportunity to make a cutting remark. A Jerk is very happy to participate in electronic forums because in cyberspace he is free to be himself...without the risk of getting a real-time punch in the mouth
  • There are many reasons why women like to be with jerks, and some eventually wake up annd realize how stupid they were, and meet a nice guy who treats them with respect. Some women never do wake up, and these become the batterd wives that you see on an episode of COPS in a trailer park with a drunk husband named Earl.
  • I think women are attracted to jerks because women want that drama,that action in her life.UNlike a wussy guy who kisses her feet and would let her run all over him and use him to death which most guys are these days..so I guess they just prefer something diffrent.Im my opinion girls are just dumbasses when it comes to this topic.Why not be with a nice guy who will treat u good instead of a mean guy who will walk on and abused the hell outta you?Its very very stupid and it tells how much the 21st century changed from the 19th century when a man would go threw hell for her and she would appriciate it.But eh who knows?
  • Because the jerks treat them with respect and honorable and caring actions.
  • Most of the women who like to be with jerks usually hang out in bars, and are fake and superficial. I met who is now my wife in collge, and he is now a lawyer. She is the most wonderful woman, and I would by no means want to have one of the goofy women who hang out in bars. Quit looking in the cesspool of women with issues, and look for a woman with some class. You are not going to find them in bars.
  • Jerks are extremely manipulative
  • Well, one reason they're jerks is because they're confident, and that's sexy. Also because most men who are jerks are physically attractive so...it's not really the being an asshole that makes a girl want to date them, it's looks & confidence.
  • I'm not, but I agree with Morgingin that for the most part "jerks" behave in a confident manner, and THAT IS a sexy trait.
  • Who the hell knows but God. Do women even know why they are attracted to some of the guys they are with and most of the stuff they do. Let alone if good and decent men will understand why. Maybe in their twisted reality which in truth is fantasy that the jerk guy you say is the best guy for them. Even if he does beat her half to death. But its been said time and again that unlike men women think emotionally 90% of the time and men think logically 90% of the time and the other ten is just stupidity because I've seen idiotic men all my life. But women only stay with the jerk because he makes her feel emotionally correct in some twisted way. Even if its the most untrue thing she will still think and date those guys because of what she feels. Hey who said your feelings will not lead you to your doom or undoing?
  • Women think they can effect a change for the better (in their opinion) in jerk's lives. Women are born reformers (think of Carrie Nation, Susan B. Anthony, Nancy Pelosi).
  • The same reason men are attracted to jerks. Hormones.
  • Yes, they do. Why? http://www.answerbag.com/a_view/5839395
  • no but some women not knowening are attracted to dickheads
  • Most of the women who like to be with jerks are fake, flaky and superficial. They like to be with jerks because they have self esteem and insecurity issues.
