Have your friends told you they don’t like your new man? Many times our friends can see we are with a jerk when we have been blinded by infatuation. Especially if we are in the halogen days of initial romance, we can overlook the signs that our amour is flawed. While this quiz from HerCampus looks at whether your man is a jerk in a rather humorous way, the subject is a serious one. A guy who doesn’t treat you properly can chip away at your ego and make you think you deserve less that you really do. To be fair to both sexes, we’ll be posting a parallel quiz tomorrow on how to tell if your girlfriend is a b*tch.

We would like to thank HerCampus for that simple quiz. While today’s post was for looking at men’s behaviour, tomorrow’s blog will peek at women’s behaviour and how to tell if she is a b*tch. In the wise words of Mark Twain “Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.”
