John Mayer certainly has the ability to irk people. The candid way he talks about his dramatic love-life and women, in general, tends to make people royally pissed. He's got an attitude. But at least the talented musician doesn't mislead. Anyone who's read anything about him knows precisely what he's about. And yet, certain famous women keep hoping that they'll be the one to tame the beast. Newsflash! ...They won't... Only he can do that. And, by the sounds of it, he doesn't want to. Mayer even told Andy Cohen that he's more than comfortable being a serial dater, which he absolutely is. After all, he's been tied to many women aside from the ones on this list. The only thing is, he's not with them long enough for the paparazzi to snap a picture. Whether you're a fan of his or not, we can all agree on the fact that most of the women he's been with seem FAR too good for him. Nonetheless, he keeps gaining their attention. Without further ado, here are 20 photos of John Mayer with his too-gorgeous-for-him girlfriends.
