Why are all the guys I like jerks?
Why are all the guys I like jerks? I think they’re nice and funny at first, but then they turn out to be so mean and nasty. I know I shouldn’t like them, but I can’t get over them. Help!
Hey girlie! Kudos to you for realizing that jerks are bad news. The next step to getting over these boys is probably to start checking out some of the quieter guys in your classes. Even though they’re shy, chances are they’re totes sweeter than the jerks you’ve been crushing on before. Find some common ground between you two, and it could be the start of something great! But, if chatting up shy guys isn’t really your thing, try talking to some of your guy buds. You may start seeing them in a different light once you have heart-to-heart convo, or find out that you both love that show from the '90s.
Or, if you just want to take a break from the crushing scene, plan a girls’ night out or have some me-time by getting lost in your fave book. It may take some time, but you’ll get over these jerks, and who knows? Maybe you’ll meet a really sweet guy next time you’re at the mall or grabbing some fro-yo!
