Why Women Like Bad Boys And Why They Shouldn’t

What is a bad boy really? Is it someone who does drugs?  Someone who sleeps with a different girl every night? Someone who has done a few stints in prison? Sure, as far as society is concerned, these guys aren’t all that great. But, for the purposes of dating, a bad boy is just one who isn’t making you happy. One who doesn’t think about your needs—whether he means to or not—and isn’t giving you what you want. You can make all the excuses in the world for the guy, but those excuses aren’t going to keep you warm at night or text you back when you’ve been waiting hours for a response. Any of these excuses sound familiar?

    After reading this article….I can’t help but to still think about my rock star. Honestly I’ll take the bad and be cool. Why: I love a dude that go get what he wants, I’m a aquarius and we love having our own personal time, flirting is human nature. Sorry but I love that bad boy type…that’s just right for me 🙂

    It truly amazes me how these articles typecast “bad boys” but do not discuss “good men” who have education and have these same tendencies.  Talk about double-standard.

    These aren’t bad boys! I thought the discussion would be about Mr. Drug dealer who sexes you just right but for obvious reasons you shouldn’t be with!  These are just regular guys who are not ready for commitment or guys who are just jerks! Madame Noire you are going to have to up your game or you will lose me as a reader and FB fan!

    The mysterious type is the only thing I agree with. Why is that considered bad though?
