I’ve been known do date a bad boy or two. I was even in love (read: in lust) with the baddest boy on campus when I was a freshman in college. At 18, I loved the chase. He was hot and cold and I enjoyed the ride even when he was frigid. There’s just something about bad boys, something about those men who play games that drives women insane in the membrane.
And bad boys are everywhere.
From our local bar to our television set, we can seek them out and try to figure them out. Whether you love Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl or had a crush on Dylan from Beverly Hills 90210, they really are irresistible.
But, why? What is it about bad boys that even entices the most logical of girls? A study from The University of British Colombia proved that women are much more attracted to men who carry proud and/or angry expressions. Men who were all smiles received little to no love. And bad boys usually seem mysterious or just mean. Have you ever seen a bad boy smile and expose a more tender side to their personality? Definitely not.
