After all, some reasoned, don’t men really prefer bad girls?
One thing to remember about men’s seeming preference for women that are a bit edgy and daring and less than wholesome is that you can’t pigeonhole all men when it comes to their preferences, any more than you can determine what “all” women want. Some men are truly put off by a woman that is a bit rough and edgy, and may prefer women with sweet and sensitive demeanors. Men who are looking for a family may also want a woman they feel they can trust and that has those “motherly” qualities about her, as opposed to one that is rebellious and unruly.
Some men also have trust issues just as women do, and may see the bad girl as someone they could never trust. These men may prefer women that commit easily and that are more stable in a relationship.
At the same time, it may be said that some men prefer bad girls for the same reasons that some women prefer bad boys; these ones have personality and strength and are fierce and independent. A so-called bad girl may not need the man to decide what they’re going to do on the weekend and to carry the entire conversation as they have their own ideas and are just as strong as he is; in other words, when you’re with a bad girl, you don’t need to do all the work in the relationship.
If you’re concerned that you’re too much of a “good” girl and want to add some toughness to your personality, don’t overdo it. There’s nothing wrong with being more forceful and independent and even fearless, but there is something wrong with being someone you’re not simply because you assume it’s what all men prefer.
