Why Do Women Like Bad Boys?


If you are female, and you are an adult, there was probably a time in your life when your parents had an idea as to the type of guy they wanted you to date – and marry. The chances are also good that as a teenager, you were more attracted to the exact opposite of what your parents wanted for you. So why do women really like bad boys?

Women Love Bad Men – Myth or Fact?

The truth is that women really do like bad boys. This isn’t necessarily, however, because they are bad boys. Instead, it is the attitude that the bad boys portray, and the feelings that these attitudes invoke in the female mind and body. You might even go as far as to say that it is a chemical reaction.

Just because women tend to be attracted to bad boys, however, is no indication that they will ever act on that attraction. Some women may think about breaking the rules, but many won’t actually do it. However those that do spend quality time with a bad boy seldom regret the experience in the future.

What Qualities do Bad Boys Have that Attract Women?

Bad boys have an attitude that is very attractive to women – for the most part. Bad boys tend to be very confident, but at the same time, they have an “I don’t care” attitude, and they tend to take things as they come fairly easy.

Then, of course, there is the adventure to be had when you consort with a bad boy – and let’s not forget the feeling of doing something that you know you are not supposed to be doing. The attraction to bad boys may also have something to do with the fact that as children, girls were held to a different standard than boys, in terms of behavior.

Is there Any Future for Women with Bad Boys?

Whether or not there is any future with a bad boy depends on the boy, and how long it takes him to outgrow his ‘bad boy ways.’ As men age, they can still have their bad boy side, but they can also develop a side to their personality that allows them to put family and responsibility first. If your bad boy has this potential, there is definitely a future with him – if you are willing to be patient. With the love of a good woman, a bad boy can turn into a real keeper.
