    1. A jerk is a person, usually male, who is self-centred and shallow and manipulates other people, usually female. A typical jerk seduces a woman and then brags to his buddies about it, often ridiculing the woman’s sexual attributes in the process.

    2. Jerk can also be used as a verb to denote annoying behaviour, particularly reneging on promises or commitments.

    Example usage:

    1. “That jerk just told the whole class about our date last night”.
    2. “Stop jerking me around and repay me the money!”.
