The Call of the Jerk

Thank God I got over this phase when I was in my mid-20s (a slimy, coke snorting, trust fund boy cured me of it). But just in case you haven't, you might want to check out this article about the allure of dating a jerk.

I read the article and it's oh so true. Thanks for the info. I'm about to leave my husband of 11 years and now I see that I did settle. Yes, he had the messy place and I thought all he needed was me to take care of him. And care for him I did. More like clean up after him, ALL THE TIME.
I also heard my biological clock ticking and I wanted more children. In hindsight, I wouldn't have had that child knowing now that I would be getting a divorce and have to put her through what we're going through. I think many articles don't address biological clocks for women. It blurs many a women's mind.
Have you seen the movie "Iron Jawed Angels". Have we come a long way? Have men? I think we all still have a lot of adjustments to make to our roles in society and it's a struggle, but well worth it for our future generations of men and women.
Thanks for all you life lessons!
