    The Bad Boy Syndrome

    The Bad Boy Syndrome

    Thread inspired by Wan's thread found here:

    The Nice Guy Syndrome

    Why are women drawn to "bad boys" -- the rebels and heels and assholes of the masculine persuasion?

    Or is this just a stereotype?

    Or have things changed in the last forty years with the advent of the New Millennial Woman?

    As Wan says: Let's share our thoughts.

    Speaking from my own personal experience, I've always been drawn to the bad boy, rebel type...to my own detriment...lesson learned...

    Why is still up for debate...
    "For the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly, but powerful by God for overturning strongly entrenched things. For we are overturning reasonings and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are bringing every thought into captivity to make it obedient to the Christ;" 2 Corinthians 10:4,5

    I was always a nice guy... still am. Attracts nice girls... the kind you want.

    I went through about two years of being a bad boy though... attracted all sorts of girls and hook-ups. Also attracted my crazy ex wife. No idea why but when you go into a place aloof and as if you could care less about meeting the females it attracts certain females very very quickly.

    Straight women like men period. Take the sexual factor out: Regardless of your gender or sexual orientation, who would you rather spend a Friday night with? Someone who is confident, exciting, fearless, and always shows you a good time, or someone predictable, boring, easily daunted, and needy?

    "Bad boys" are men with qualities we all wish we had and we all prefer to spend time with people who exhibit qualities we admire and want to cultivate in ourselves.

    You may be working from a different lexicon.
    Instead of "confident, exciting, fearless, and always shows you a good time", try reckless, intimidating, belligerent, impaired judgment and always guaranteed to act like a predator while thinking they showed you a good time.

    Any ordinary man can be confident, exciting, fearless, and always show a woman a good time.

    True. Depends on how ones defines "bad boy." But the women who are attracted to someone you define as a "bad boy" are unlikely to share your definition of "bad boy" don't you agree? Don't you think they probably look at the men they see as "bad boys" and see the qualities I listed rather than the ones you listed?

    An ordinary man can have all of those qualities. "Bad boys" project these qualities in spades. Much like ordinary women can have qualities that men find attractive, but women who project their assets often get more attention than those who don't.
