Are you dating a jerk?

I never understood why so many single people put up with bad behavior or rudeness when it came to dating. If these things rear their heads in dating, imagine what being in a relationship with the person will be like?

It happens a lot, sadly, and I wonder if there is some reason for it. If you notice such things as quick tempers, rude to servers, tardiness, and other jerk behavior, why give the person second and third dates?

Why are we so drawn to jerks? I know that no one is perfect, but it seems that many of us endure certain things longer then we should and then wonder why we end up dating a jerk.

How do you know when you are dating a jerk or if someone just has a few bad days? Is it possible to get a jerk to change their ways?

Leggs – You all might have to go to the websites to check your status. That’s crazy or else I’m just going crazy!! I went on one and they said they mailed out all the decisions last Friday!

y’all crack jokes about my aversion to tears all y’all want. I asked people to start paying attention to how often they see images of chicks crying on tv. turns out they cry on movies, in commercials, during sporting events, when they are happy, when they are sad, when they are scared. they cry when they are in trouble and they cry in an attempt to keep from getting in trouble. it’s just tear overload. I can’t take it. I said I’m going to use my aversion to tears to get out of jury duty. just going to have to tell the judge/attorneys that I’m automatically going to doubt whoever gets on the stand and starts crying. all that crying just isn’t necessary.

kimmie – it’s all smiles but I mean it. I can’t stand when a person cries when recounting an incident. it just seems contrived. I’ve had much bad stuff happen in my life but nothing that makes me cry just to think or talk about it. I’d be sitting in the jury box trying to keep from rolling my eyes.

ITL – not necessarily you and not necessarily today but the jokes get cracked re how I can’t tolerate crying. it’s all good and I’m surely not offended when it does happen because I really can’t stand unnecessary crying (and in my opinion so much of it is unnecessary).

I can deal with it when it’s truly a sad situation like your child died or something. But like the other night I was watching Biggest Loser. Someone was talking about how far they’ve come since they started the show and next thing you know they are crying. And it’s every week. I’m like, come on! I hate to be heartless, but it’s really gotten old now.

@Slim ~ I sure did. Got under the covers as soon as the new show Scandal went off and slept like a newborn baby who finally sleeps through the night. Any of you seen it? Shonda Rhimes has another hit on her hands. This is a must see show.

It’s a show about an investigative team led by Kerry Washington. They are not a law firm, and they don’t work legally with law enforcement. They are a crisis management team of experts in their own right. They run a tight ship and make problems “go away” for their clients. She leads with her “gut feeling” which is never wrong. She’s shoots straight from the hip, no nonsense, strong woman with a soft side. Excellent cast!

Kerry Washington huh? Sounds like it may be a good show to try to get into. Seems like reality tv is taking over everything else. However, I wonder if this show you speak of will be like a House where you sort of know whats going to happen every episode just with different characters

@Slim ~ there was a scene where the new girl was in the bathroom crying. One of the guys went in and told her there’s no crying on this team. Never let Olivia (the woman in charge) see her crying, ever. No one cries. She responds with who tells another not to cry? I shouted “DISCO” and fell out laughing…sorry disco, no offense. While he was reciting his lines I just put you in that role knowing you could deliver those lines probably more convincinly than he had.
