Bad Boys: Why Are We Attracted To Them?

Rate This

Dating Coach Joann Cohen shares why women are attracted to bad boys.

Why are ladies attracted to bad boys? Such a common question, and a lot of times it’s because bad boys are those people that have a lot of sexual energy, a lot of alpha male.

We are wondering what they are going to do. They are unpredictable so we are drawn to them. We are drawn to that masculinity. We are drawn to that sexual chemistry.

It sometimes give some women the permission to go crazy and go wild and do something that they normally wouldn’t do on their own.

And of course there’s always those few women who think they can rescue or cure a man, which cannot happen.

So we can get attracted to the bad boys but we have to again reflect, do we want a relationship and does that bad boy have the character and the ethics to have a relationship or is he just a fling?

It seems that often younger women are more attracted to bad boys than older women.

Older women seem to have had that experience with a bad boy, been there - done that, gone down that road and don’t want to do it again.

Some young women have to have that experience to get burnt and realize it’s not an exciting ride after all.
