Why Do Good Girls Like Bad Boys?
Why do the good girls have a soft spot for the guys we least expect them to fall for? It would make sense for good girls and good boys to have a thing for each other, and the same to apply for the bad boys and the bad girls. It seems as if human beings and magnets have one thing in common: that opposites attract. However, this does not mean that the dating scene has an equal distribution of these opposites, because the bad boys tend to have significantly more dates when you compare them to the average male. This also means that the nice guys, who fall in the good guys category, hardly have a dating record that any of them can boast about. This is terrible news for the nice guys, who by now think they need to turn and become bad in order to get the girls of their dreams.
All woman has had a friend who dated a guy who was evidently bad news, but she just couldn't resist. Maybe, that friend was you. And yet, despite all the warnings and red flags, the pull of dating a bad boy was a minute ago too strong. So, even with altogether of the signs that heartbreak is on the horizon, why do we still find bad boys so appealing? It may not be politically acceptable to admit it, but these dark, macho men can be compellingly alluring, with their downright seductive swagger. We reached out to experts to achieve out why this allure is able of taking over our rational thoughts.
