It’s always fun to come across gems like this. Most of these lists are always about trying to deal with that little hamster that likes to spin the wheel hoping to rationalize away all their hindbrain evolutionary wiring. Simply put, all women fall for assholes because from an evolutionary standpoint, assholes in today’s society have the best genes for her potential offspring… Oh yeah, and the dopamine rush they constantly bring.
So without further ado, lets go through the numbers. My thoughts in bold
Why The Best Girls Always End Up With The Biggest Assholes – by Holly Riordan
Sure, by now we should know better than to keep falling for the same types of guys who will leave us heartbroken and totally jaded. But it’s a difficult cycle to break because:
- WE DON’T REALIZE HOW MUCH WE DESERVE.
She said: Because we’re not in touch with how amazing we are, we let our standards fall.
He said: Because you all are unique snowflakes and ALL different from her… uh huh, yup.. When assholes give you the tingles, that next sound is your reason going out the window.
- WE ASSUME THEY’RE BEING HONEST WITH US.
She said: We tell them the truth so we assume they’re giving us the same treatment. We never see the cheaters coming — because we’re decent, we think the guy we’re dating is decent.
He said: Said the hamster once again… Assholes see right through this BS, Nice Guys actually believe you. That’s why the Betas are all pissed at the Assholes, LOL Their armor isn’t shiny enough to overcome an asshole’s devilry.
- WE’RE TOO NICE.
She said: We don’t like to hurt anyone’s feelings. If a man asks us out, we’ll give him a chance, and if he asks for a second chance, we’ll give him that, too. Assholes are the pushiest people around, which is why they’re the hardest to say “no” to.
He said: She won’t hurt anyone’s feelings if she thinks she can win at something like one-upmanship on another female. Assholes know the rules to the game and outplay her… With the tingles he produces, she.just.CAN’T.say.no
- WE BELIEVE THAT PEOPLE CAN CHANGE.
She said: After you screw up, we’ll give you the opportunity to make things right, even if you don’t deserve it. We genuinely believe that people can change, which is why we waste way so much time in a relationship that’s going nowhere.
He said: Assholes don’t care.
- ASSHOLES INITIALLY LOOK THE MOST APPEALING.
She said: We’re super sweet and fun to be around, which is why we have plenty of options. Of course, assholes are confident and flirty, which is why they’re the ones we gravitate towards. It’s not until later that we find out how sketchy they really are.
He said: You’re right, they are for a reason. But seriously, you did see it coming even during the dopamine rush. Solipsism is the rose-colored glasses honey.
- WE SEE THE BEST IN OTHERS.
She said: Even if a guy has a million undesirable traits, we’ll focus on the one good thing about him. It’s why we get along with everyone we meet, but it’s also why we get screwed over.
He said: Said by a snowflake trying to deny riding the party carousel.
- THEY THINK THEY CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF US.
She said: Assholes love to go after nice girls like us because they think that we’ll let them walk all over us. They want to do whatever they want without getting punished for it, which is why we’re the perfect targets.
He said: Assholes don’t care… rinse and repeat.
- WE OVERESTIMATE HOW MUCH WE CAN HANDLE.
She said: We know how tough we are, so we assume we can handle a rough relationship. Of course, even the strongest women can be torn apart by a guy.
He said: You go grrrl. Don’t worry, you’ll have your orbiters you’ll turn to and make you feel better about your decisions.
- WE LIKE THE EXCITEMENT.
She said: Truth be told, our lives are pretty boring. That’s why some of us secretly like the drama that comes with dating an asshole. It gives us something to complain about.
He said: Right on target Captain! Wimmins hate being bored and love the emotional rollercoaster.
- WE DON’T REALIZE HOW GOOD MEN CAN BE.
She said: We’ve dealt with so many assholes throughout our lives that we think they’re all that’s out there. We don’t realize that there are genuinely good guys in the world that would treat us the way we deserve. That’s why the cycle continues and we date asshole after asshole.
He said: Said like every snowflake that is high mileage after the party years, now an Alpha Widow, and and wants a good beta to settle down and provide for her. Of course, within a period of time of no tingles from the beta, she’s about to go Eat, Pray, Love on the poor sap. She’s still pining over the asshole.
- WE HATE TO SAY GOODBYE.
She said: Most men aren’t assholes at first, and by the time their true colors start coming out, we’re already attached. It’s hard to break up with them when we’ve already pictured a future together. That’s how they trap us.
He said: It’s all HIS FAULT!!!
To all you men out there, Man Up by getting in touch with your inner asshole, seriously, she’ll appreciate it.
