    17 Reasons Dating Is Hard When You're Kind Of An Asshole

    Dating is rough to begin with, but when you're sort of mean it's the absolute worst.

    1. You're a grump to begin with, which makes meeting people difficult.

    2. When someone likes you, you scare them away just by being your normal jerky self.

    3. And when you have a crush you default to making fun of them, which is incredibly counterproductive.


    4. Your sarcasm level is always waaaaay higher than your date's, which can lead to a few misunderstandings.

    5. It's almost impossible for you to feign interest in people if you already know it's not going to work out.

    6. Your particular brand of honesty isn't well-received on first dates, or second dates, or ever.

    16. You wonder every day what your love life would be like if you had anything resembling a filter.
