Nice Guys VS Jerks

According to several on-line sites, and polls, most guys believe that women prefer jerks over nice guys. After reading several articles, it seems that a lot of men are thinking that the only way to truly become a Don Juan with women is to turn into some type of jerk (or at least exhibit some jerk-like tendencies every once in a while).

Most women, if they are being honest, will admit that there is something about jerks that intrigues them, (think James Dean, Brad Pitt in Legends of the Fall, Colin Farell, Johnny Depp).

Most women will also admit, if they’re being honest, that they can recall a number of past experiences where they were being hotly pursued by a “really nice guy” but, for whatever reason, were just not attracted to him.

Women (just as men by the way) want someone who excites them, makes them feel special and gives them a thrill on a regular basis.  Nice guys can be B-O-R-I-N-G and P-R-E-D-I-C-T-A-B-L-E, two things that turn a woman off. They are also attracted to the jerk because of the challenge to change them. Nice guys can initially give off an aura of being possessive and jealous which always turns women off.

Jerks can sometimes even be nasty, but they seem to carry that nastiness with a touch of excitement, which is why most women will be attracted to a “jerk.” This usually lasts until most of these women are in their late 20’s or early 30’s.

From my own past experiences, I can conclude that yes, jerks can be intriguing, but after a few instances of getting jerked around, the nice guy is who we are really after.
