I saw that meme-comic everyone seems to be talking about with the girl turning the guy down because he is "nice". Do you think it's just a myth that girls like jerks or do you think it's true? I personally think they really do like jerks.

Girls prefer confidence and a lack of confidence is the only thing stopping most people from being jerks.

I wouldn't say they like jerks, they just like confidence. And I guess a guy with a jerky amount of confidence is better than a guy with no confidence.


So yes.

its confidence, the ability to say/do anything and not be constantly second guessing yourself. They can almost smell that insecurity and it makes one seem weak. Dickheads maybe dickheads but they have confidence in abundance.

"Jerks" = Confidence = Power/Authority = Attraction

It's a basic animalistic need for a woman to keep her children safe, and a man of strength can provide that for her. That's the same reason they want a guy who's in shape. Obviously this is may seem outdated in today's society, but that's the result of thousands of years of development

EDIT: I don't think girls want an actual asshole, I think you're just perceiving some guys who get girls to be as such because of their "powerful" nature. This is all a generalization, of course.

I'm just a jerk. It has nothing to do with confidence or shit. More to do with not giving a ****.

Girls want me. I'm not a jerk. Sometimes on the internet, but that's about it.

Yep. Internet people equate no confidence with "nice," and confidence as "being a dick."

While it may seem that way because you are young and inexperienced; no, they don't.

Nice guys can't win cause they're not manly enough. A "jerk"is just someone really masculine

Girls don't prefer jerks. Guys that can't get girls just label them as such.


That was very subtle. And c'mon, if you guys really got so many girls, why are you online? Shouldn't you be bustin cherries?

Girls like Jerks
Guys like jerks

if guys like the nice girls, you'd go for that ugly girl that you know you could easily secure who is genuinly nice
but nope, you have to have a crush on the bitchy hot ones

No, they prefer guys with confidence. The trend, however , seems to be that the higher someone's actual worth, the lower their self esteem and confidence. And vice versa. It turns out that jerks and idiots think pretty highly of themselves and are confident in their non-existent desirability.
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.

Like it's been previously stated, girls prefer confidence. Unfortunately, in some cases, men are confident because they know what to say in order to manipulate women's minds into believing bullshit so they can get into their pants. However, I don't think that women are as ignorant to the bullshit as they claim. Women just like to use the whole "guys are jerks" thing to justify their sex lives because admitting that they're almost as horny as men is a taboo these days.

girls like jerks, women don't. There's a difference.

Also, everyone's right about confidence, girls don't like guys that aren't confident.

Anyone who says yes is a chauvinist who bases their knowledge of women from Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother.

They prefer the confidence that jerks usually have. Jerks are usually inconsiderate and do whatever they want, deeming them confident. Nice guys consider others and so they're usually not as confident.

Another thing is that girls live in a world where people are actually quite nice to them. So, when a guys actually got the bollocks to challenge to them a little they act like he just ****ed their pets.

Ugly people aren't always nice. Insecurity can make a lot of people really horrible to deal with, especially girls who are insecure about their looks.

That being said, from what I've seen, girls tend to go for people with strong character traits and personalities, with average looks, and guys tend to go for women with great looks, but average personalities.

Just from what I've seen.

EDIT: Oh, and women are often prone to wanting to "change" guys, at least in my personal experience. This can range from clothing style to university major, I've heard it aaall before.
So yeah, maybe some girls DO go for jerks, because they secretly want to change their ways or whatever, but that's only a small part, like the portion of guys who want women to chain them to a bed and put out cigarettes on their chest.

No, I think girls just use terrible methods of attracting men. If you use your sex appeal to win over a guy who wouldn't date you for your personality, he is going to be a jerk/pig, because thats the reason he's there.

And on that same note, girls are way more sexual than they like to let on. Thus they enjoy using their body to attract guys, but then they complain when the guy is only there for their body. You'd think they'd figure it out eventually...

On this, I think it's a result of guys thinking they have to lie about their intentions just to get laid, or women taking it as an offense that a guy thinks of them only as a potential random sexual partner. If guys and chicks were both just more upfront about it, it wouldn't be such a goddamn problem.

Guy: "Hey babe, wanna come over and bang?"
Girl: "Nah, no thanks."
Guy: "Aight, no biggie!"

Instead of

Guy: "Oh man I'm going to pretend to be genuinely interested in you for days and pretend to be developing feelings for you because I really just wanna bang you."
Girl: "Man he's really my type but I can't just SLEEP with him, I have to know he's going to commit to a relationship or else it'll just be random sex and I'll be a slut!"

Because that shit is bullshit on both sides.

Kind of sucks that there's so much social pressure for women to act like girls.

There is?
