It is no secret that women prefer to date bad boys over nice ones. At the very least, they want their man to imbibe some of the bad boy traits that stoke their feminine energy.
On the other hand, gentlemen wish they had some of the bad boys’ dating prowess. In short, bad boy qualities are much in demand!
Look at the fictional arts- time and again, directors and authors have chosen a bad boy to be the protagonist.
Take the popular erotic novel and movie, 50 Shades of Grey, for example. Christian Grey, the heartthrob of millions of women worldwide, demonstrates typical bad boy qualities that the fairer sex feels powerfully attracted to.
So, who is a bad boy?
By bad boy, I don’t mean a life-destroying kind of man who has been behind the bars several times.
I mean the kind of guy women swoon over, the one that gets the best girl with great ease. The one that runs his fingers through the knots of a woman’s soul and casts a spell so hypnotic that all other matters become secondary in her life!
Scientifically speaking, a bad boy is ‘’hyper-masculine’’ and ‘’oozes testosterone’’ which leads to his ‘’boldness and exaggerated sexuality’’. He may be ‘’rebellious and emotionally unavailable’’ too.
From a layman perspective, some common adjectives that describe the bad boy persona are self-confident, headstrong, daring, magnetic, and elusive.
Have you wondered why, despite all the conventional red flags, a woman can’t resist falling for bad boys?
There are three main reasons women fall for the bad boy
1. They make women feel liberated
Women often have a sheltered upbringing where they are taught to be compliant and obedient. Hence, the inner wild child that was suppressed all along finds a gateway. The freedom of being with a bad boy is an exhilarating experience for many women.
2. What’s forbidden excites women
Knowing that the bad boy is unconventional and someone they shouldn’t give their hearts to, strengthens their attraction and takes the chemistry to a whole new level.
3. Women enjoy the sense of accomplishment
Sometimes women tend to look at a bad boy as a project they need to work on to get the rewards. It’s like a test of their womanly powers. So, when they finally land a bad boy, it gives their confidence levels a big boost.
11 desirable traits in a bad boy that nice guys often lack
Many wannabes think that changing things externally, like their clothes, looks and attitude will turn them into bad boys women find attractive. But the difference between nice guys and bad boys is the mindset. Bad boys have a unique mindset that sets them apart from the rest of the men.
Read on and find out about the qualities that make bad guys desirable:
1. Bad boys are unashamedly authentic
Real is rare, and damn attractive. It’s just so much cooler when guys are genuine around women. Bad boys aren’t afraid to reveal their true colors, regardless of what the world thinks. Their unapologetic authenticity has a great impact on a lady’s mind.
They couldn’t care less about fitting into the nice guy’s shoe. Being genuine takes guts and reflects their no-nonsense, strong character. This persona makes them more exciting and memorable to women.
Moreover, bad boys are very comfortable in their skin. For example, just because women like guys who are witty and funny doesn’t mean they’ll forcefully crack jokes to grab their attention. If their natural aura is that of a ‘serious guy’, then they are cool with that.
In case you always try to be that person who is entertaining others, please be aware that you might end up making a big fool of yourself.
2. A bad boy exudes natural confidence
Their confidence comes from deep within. It’s a solid and permanent self-belief that cannot be shaken. It has nothing to do with bank balance or all the expensive stuff money can buy. Women are drawn to that natural self-confidence. And that brings us to the next point.
3. Bad boys have an enticing body language
Confidence is sexy. Self-assured bad boys exude a raw sex appeal that’s very hard for women to resist! Their powerful, confident minds are mirrored by their body language. Hence, they are poised and carry themselves with effortless ease. They are also able to communicate their feelings clearly.
4. A bad boy is a risk-taking individual
The bad boy knows how to seize the moment without worrying about the consequences too much. And if things go awry, they don’t fuss over it too much and just move on.
Women actually prefer straightforward and assertive guys. Bad boys express their desires without fear or guilt, and usually, their boldness is rewarded. If they like a woman or want to get intimate with their partner, they will approach her with confidence.
Good guys often overthink, turning good moments into awkward ones. If your partner likes you, she’ll enjoy random actions like being pulled and kissed.
So, Skip the worry, just do it.
