The big lesson to take away here is that, if someone's a dick, chances are, the people in their lives are dicks too...
What would you rather have: a guy who remembers your first kiss together or a guy who hangs what you said to him during a drunken argument over your head forever? Assholes can have selective memory, and it's usually not for the good things or the best times.Nobody really wants to play the game, but if we eventually want to get back into a relationship, then we have to. Which is why on most Friday nights, you'll find me shot-gunning a pizza instead of out on some lame-o Tinder date with another guy who I'll later find out has lost his license and is moving back in with his parents.So yeah, I'll gladly spend some quality time with myself and my fish over some guy who isn't interested in anything beyond the bedroom.They tend to be stubborn and don't enjoy being managed.They tend to be good leaders, given their persistent drive to succeed. Face it, many of us have real high standards in our daily life and it's pretty much agreeable for all of us that we end up with a partner that suits us just right. Dating is all a game, and not a fun one like beer pong.
It's more like playing Monopoly with a bunch of people who lie about having Boardwalk (when all they really have is Baltic Avenue). While this rule seems tried and true, it doesn't change the fact that it seems like the majority of single guys out there are, in fact, assholes.
On the surface, he's all sweet, but those asshole tendencies don't shine through until later on. Right, just to find out he was a big enough asshole to lure us in in the first place. Isn't it kind of nice not to constantly deal with the ups and down of a dramatic relationship that come with a douche?
To avoid all that unnecessary boy drama, here are four immediate pros and inevitable cons to dating an asshole and why you should trade them in for a nice guy ASAP. At first, things with an asshole usually seem fiery and passionate, but that same fire is sure to burn through the bad times just as intensely.
So, how do you know if someone truly, really is an Asshole? If a person in your life is just there for you to act as a sounding board to theirs, then: This could be yet another sign that you are dating an Asshole.
Unlike an emotional vampire, you can’t just wave a clove of garlic at them and hope they disappear. Assholes have trouble staying honest, because they are used to looking after number one: themselves.
They use the bad stuff in relationships to justify emotionally distancing themselves from you.
