The Kind Of Jerk You Always Fall For, Based On His Zodiac Sign

fall for a jerk
Love, Zodiac

This is one type of guy that you need to take off repeat.

Do you sometimes feel as if you’re a jerk magnet? No matter how you try to do things differently, you fall for a jerk with the same kind of assh*le personality.

You desperately want to end this pattern of jerky guys but you feel powerless to do so. Finding the right guy is challenging enough in this world, but finding the right guy in a sea of jerks seems downright impossible sometimes.

You meet a new guy and by all appearances, he seems great — kind, articulate, hot, and smart. But then when things start to get comfortable, his true jerk side is revealed and once again you find yourself falling for an assh*le.

It isn’t that there aren’t signs that he’s not quite Mister Perfect — there are a ton of them. But for whatever reason you ignore them or try to talk yourself into believing that he’ll change, that’s he’s not a true jerk, and that all he needs is someone to believe in him so much that he grows up and stops being so self-centered and thoughtless.

It’s possible, I guess, for a jerk to become a better person, but it doesn’t happen that often. Once a jerk, always a jerk, and when a jerk ages, the traits that make them a jerk just intensify and make being around them practically unbearable.

You especially don’t want to be with a jerk who doesn’t respect you or treat you right. No one deserves that and if that’s the way they want to treat you, they don’t deserve to be with you, even if they have other more redeeming qualities. No matter how hot someone is, if they treat you like crap, you need to cut them out of your life.

We all have characteristics and traits that we share with the individuals born under the same zodiac sign as us, so astrology can show you why you fall for a jerk and the kind of jerk you’re most likely to fall for.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

He's a jerk because he cheats on you all the time. He can't resist it when he sees a pretty face and will 9 times out of 10 hit on them — sometimes right in front of you! He has no impulse control and has commitment issues too. He doesn't even see it as a character flaw, he just knows he likes a challenge and he loves the chase.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

He's a jerk because his conflict management skills leave a lot to be desired. He absolutely refuses to see things from your point of view and won't compromise. There's no give when you're in an argument or you want him to do something he doesn't want to do. His go-to response is to have a very intense yet chilly temper tantrum which will be impossible for you to deal with. There's no open discussion, there's only his way.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

He's a jerk because he's such a skilled liar that it doesn't even register that he's lying to you. When you want a straight answer, he'll cajole you, charm you, and even try to distract you from the truth. It's frustrating and annoying. You never know where you stand and if your relationship is going anywhere. Is he seeing other people? Good luck finding out because you'll never get the truth out of him.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

He's a jerk because his life is in shambles and he doesn't have any spare energy to be there for you. He doesn't have a job, he's losing his apartment, and he still hasn't gotten over his ex. You can only help him so much before you get to the point where you'd like a little support and help in return. He doesn't have the wherewithal to get his life together and be there for you. You can feel sorry for him and wish his circumstances were better but he's still a jerk.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

He's a jerk because he fools you into an almost relationship even though he knows you want more. When you think you've had enough he gets super sweet and caring and when things in your relationship seem to be going well, he'll do something to convince you that he's not that invested in the relationship. You get all the drama and angst of a relationship without the feeling of being cared for or appreciated.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

He's not just a jerk, he's a cheap jerk. You thought he was being generous when he picked up the tab for the weekend and then he gave you a bill for your part which he had figured out to the penny. It's not that you can't pay for yourself, it's just that he gave no indication that was how it was going to be. He doesn't make you feel as if impressing you is important to him. At first, you think his extreme couponing was cute, but now you think it's obnoxious and kind of embarrassing.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

He's a jerk because not only doesn't he text, call, or email you back, he never initiates contact in the first place. You wonder if he's so lazy and he can't even pick up his phone to text you a message, then how invested in you or your relationship could he be? Doesn't he want to hear your voice or share with you funny things that happened? If you had to wait for him to return a text, you'd miss out on everything.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

He's a jerk because he compares you to his ex all the time. If she was so amazing and wonderful why aren't they still together? You can't compete with perfection and you highly doubt she's as incredible as he makes her out to be. It's possible he's just using the memory of her to keep you at arm's length and you don't need that at all.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

He's a jerk because he makes all kinds of promises that he rarely keeps. You know by now that you shouldn't keep getting your expectations up but he manages to convince you that this time will be different but he never comes through. How many times can you have the rug pulled out from under you? He's fun if you keep your expectations low and try to enjoy the moment. His intentions may be good but he's still an assh*le.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

He's a jerk because he can be very cold. You don't know if he's afraid of being hurt or if he's naturally aloof, but his behavior doesn't make you feel like he cares whether you're in his life or not. You know he's very wrapped up in his job but that's no excuse for treating you as if you're a bother to him.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

He's a jerk because he can be very patronizing and will talk down to you as if you're not very smart. While it's true that he's brilliant and creative, it doesn't mean that you're not or that you can't hold your own when it comes to any kind of intellectual battle. Not only is his attitude off-putting, it's very disrespectful. He needs to treat everyone as if they're his intellectual equals, not as though they can't keep up with his big brain.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

He doesn't mean to be a jerk but he's so insecure that he comes off as one. He's always making jokes at your expense and trying to steal any attention from you. He's immature and it shows, but you're not there to mother him. If he can't behave like an adult, then you need to exit stage left.
