Asking the question why do girls go for jerks is pointless. Im asking why do girls stay after knowing they are "a-holes". Is it because he made you feel special at one point? Is it because you believe "this is as good as it gets"? Do keep yourself ignorant to how bad it really is? These are all rhetorical questions but I do want opinions on why do girls seem to more often then not stay in bad/abusive relationships
Why stay with someone who mistreats you. Whats the psychology in this?

I think it's everything you said. Many girls get with a guy and initially things are great. The guy is saying the girl is amazing, that she's wonderful, he takes her out, etc...
However, once they have been together for a while the relationship may start to get boring or the guy reverts back to his usual self. So the good behaviour front is gone.
I think people tend to stay in that situation because they saw how good things were and think it will go back to being that way. But unfortunately how things were was not how they naturally are. And the true self comes out.
It can also be hard to leave a guy when there is an attachment. So much time has already been spent in the relationship, it seems wasteful to walk away.
Those are just my theories.13
