Men to Avoid Like the Plague
He shows up anywhere and everywhere—at our jobs, on our dates, in our relationships, on the street and in the grocery store. Classically labeled as “The Jerk,” he can take many forms, and sometimes it takes us a little while to see him for what he really is. The good news is that we can take steps to armor ourselves against these bozos by taking a look at some typical jerk types to watch out for.
1. Two-Faced Jerk
This guy may speak the sweetest words to you, but what he’s telling his buddies, the neighbors, and your co-workers would expose him as Public Enemy No. 1 if you were to actually hear what he’s saying about you behind your back. You can often spot this guy by listening to how he speaks about other people when they’re not around—if he’s doing this to others, chances are he’s doing it to you.
2. The Egocentric Jerk
This one can’t wait to boast about his talents, achievements, and anything else that immediately concerns him. No matter where the conversation starts, he always manages to bring it back to himself, while any moments you’ve managed to get a word in yourself have been met with bored looks and distracted glances. This one’s easy to spot, ladies, and should have you running for the hills at the first sign.
3. The Controlling Jerk
He’s always got to put in his two cents, and bullies his way into getting what he wants. Even the seemingly insignificant details are like small hard-won victories for him, and he will fight you for them: where to eat, which freeway to take and so on. Instead of constantly locking horns with him or simply complying with his every whim, get out and find yourself someone who respects your needs as well as his own.
4. The Womanizing Jerk
Ah, the skirt-chaser. Some men make it their life’s work to collect and bed women, and sexual female attention is as important as breathing is to them. This speaks of a disrespect for all women and a lack of self-confidence that requires him to constantly validate his worth as a man. Don’t waste your time trying to be the one girl who’ll change him, either; leave that laborious burden to him while you move forward with positive and healthy male relationships.
“Attracting sex is simple. The hard part is when someone believes that sex and love are the same or that one will naturally lead to the other.” – Reed ext. 5105
5. Ever-the-Critic Jerk
This guy is everlastingly critical, judging and antagonizing everyone he sees as inferior. As he uses his own skewed moral compass, he will always end up on top while you are left to repent and somehow trudge along with your inferior life. Drop this delusional character as fast as you can.
6. The Opportunist Jerk
This type of jerk has a recognizable parasitic quality to his approach. It’s always about what someone can do for him; he’ll sell out his mother if it’ll get him ahead somehow. Best to leave this one to his own eventual demise before you find yourself serving as just another one of his stepping stones.
