Every woman has at least had one friend who dated a bad guy, but she couldn’t resist, and this could happen because of various reasons. Despite all the red flags, dating a “bad boy” was very appealing. Even with all of the signs that say heartbreak is on the horizon, why do women still find losers so amusing?
It may not be absolutely correct to admit it, but these men can be attractive. We reached out to experts to figure out why this allure is taking over our rational thoughts.
Evolutionary biologists would feel “bad boys” are hypermasculine. “These men ooze testosterone in and out, leading to boldness and is associated with exaggerated sexuality. They may also be emotionally unavailable, says one of our relationship experts.
In the most negative interpretation, bad guys display qualities of the experts, according to the relationship researcher. Basically, they might be narcissistic (with entitlement), Machiavellian, and psychopathic (displaying antisocial behavior). And yet, sometimes we can’t quit them.
Apparently, we want their sperm but necessarily their partnership.
Science partially explains Why Women Choose Bad Boys and Losers. Experts say research shows women are more attracted to masculine men during the middle of their menstrual cycle when they’re most fertile. Men with extreme masculine traits may have better quality genes, so it could be attractive to women on an unconscious evolutionary level.
That said, when they’re looking for an ideal partner, women cite nice-guy traits, like honesty and trustworthiness. In fact, they say they would actively avoid partners who are disrespectful or physically aggressive. So, on a conscious level, most women recognize that bad boys don’t make long-term partners.
“Bad boys” help us free from the pressure of being good women.
“Girls possess a wide range of traits, like rebelliousness,” explains one of our health experts. “These traits are usually repressed during childhood, as females are socialized to be compliant.
“We attracted to qualities in others that we ourselves wish we had,” says our health expert team. A ‘good girl’ may admire a bad boy’s freedom. Despite the quality makes him unsuitable for the long-term, it makes him so attractive, it’s seemingly worth the potential pain associated.
“Bad boys may be a welcome change from the usual types of partners. Especially if women are bored, these men can seem “exciting and fun” — but dating them can also come with huge drawbacks, like hurt feelings, fights, or even addictions and criminal records.
The bottom line: Proceed with caution. The experts agree that men who don’t want to change in most cases will not. For instance, research shows that males who’ve cheated are more likely to be unfaithful in future relationships as well, says doctors and experts from our team.
