Teenage girls (and often adult women as well) tend to have VERY low self-esteem. They go for jerks because they either consciously or subconsciously feel that that's what they deserve. I see it happen everyday.
We've done everything to get one of my friends out of a relationship she's been in for a year and a half now with a monster, but we've given up and are just letting her deal with it. He cheated on her several times, lies to her, she thinks his parents are demonic, and she always worries he's going to cheat again. But I guess after awhile you have to wonder if they like it, the abuse. Why else stay with it? She admits her self-esteem is terrible, which it is.
Girls like me with confidence and self-esteem tend to not get boyfriends during high school because we're openly weird, voice our opinions no matter what, and don't let jerks walk all over us. Most teen guys are intimidated by that, so they go for the girls with low self esteem. But my boyfriend is an amazing guy who would've never gotten a girlfriend in highschool because he's funny and nice and confident enough with himself to be openly weird in public, but he got to know me, and there you go.
REMEMBER: "Quality boys get quality girls." Just, often, not in high school.
It'll happen soon. I promise.
