Is the excitement and mystery of being with a bad guy worth the heartbreak?
Back from the pages of history, bad boys are always known to leave a trail of teary-eyed women with broken hearts & trust behind them. Remember Brad pitt in Fight Club or more recently, Ryan Gosling in the Crazy, Stupid Love? The truth revealed women dig jerks. It’s true, right? Despite their wrong actions, women cannot refrain themselves from their charm. It’s an inbuilt human quality, of liking everything that is wrong for you. we know we desire that ecstasy and we’re all guilty of this fact.
psychiatrist Anita Peters says, “Bad boys, as we like to refer them, may or may not be involved in a number of wrong things like smoking, drinking, excessive partying and women. Every girl would prefer to fill her life with excitement, and a man who keeps a woman on her toes gives her just that…and more. Ask a girl who slept with a ‘bad boy!’ However, a bad boy’s attraction is limited. It might even end as just being a childish fantasy.”
According to a recent survey carried out, the thrill of being with someone who lives on the wild side has a lot of women chasing after it. Breaking out of the mundane, monotonous & boring life, women often opt for some drama to spice up their monotonous, mundane lives.
Richa Tripathi, 23, economics graduate says “I dated this amazing fine guy when I was 20. He’d buy me flowers, chocolates, and gifts, we’d have some amazing chats, it was way too nice, relaxed relationship. I broke up with him because he was too decent to be with. Everything was too simple with him. There was no thrill in dating him. I know I broke his heart but I wanted someone a little more exciting, a little more extraordinary.”
Be it the air of confidence that they exude or believing in living life on its very edge, on their own terms and conditions, there is something dangerously alluring about these guys. Says Corine Rao, a psychologist who studies sexuality and behavior of humans, “Sarcasm, unpredictability and jerk-like behavior of these fellows all trigger strange emotions in women. It might be because of low self-confidence or a need for thrill and excitement in life or may be some deep rooted issues since childhood.”
Regenerating a serial playboy into a loving, homely man is also a challenge most women want to gear up in their life. The adventure of getting to know them, seeing what they can potentially do in bed and how their lives would emerge out with them seems to have a strong magnet for ladies.
