It’s a mystery to some, a puzzle for many. What is it with bad boys that women swoon over?
I used to wonder about that a lot since most women I know end up with guys harboring the Johnny Depp look and the Charlie Sheen persona . They’re the type of guys who takes them for granted, hurt them verbally or emotionally, yell at them or use them. But no matter how many times they get crushed by these kinds of men they still can’t get enough of these guys. They would then wonder where all the good guys have gone. “Oh they’re there; we just don’t see them because we placed them in the Friendzone”. They longingly wish for a prince charming to sweep them off their feet but the reality is when Mr. Nice comes along, they put them off and go chasing after the Bad Boy. Is there any logical or even scientifical explanation to this?
According to Livescience.com, “Women choose bad boys because their hormones make them, new research suggests. When ovulating a woman’s hormones influence who she sees as good potential fathers, and they specifically pick sexier men over obviously more dependable men.” Which is supported by Psychologytoday.com, based on Daniel Kruger “Women intuitively get attracted to brave acts of altruism more than to altruism per se,”
Women also love the chase, the excitement of going after the guy who ignores them and makes them work extra hard to get their attention. And just like they said, we always want what we can’t have. They hold so much mystery that women can’t figure out what’s going on in their heads. It drives women crazy figuring out why these bad boys are not as loco about them as they should be.
And then there’s this desire in every women to try to change a bad boy and turn them into what they want them to be, maybe hoping that they could turn this irresponsible man into a dependable father figure, which is likely to happen.But in the end, women should realize that no matter what they do bad boys will be bad boys.
