I’m interested in psychology and I got a comment just now asking me why girls like bad boys. I’ve done quite a bit of reading about this in the past so I’m quoting from a variety of sources. Well, the first and foremost reason is due the period before their period, so to speak.
Females are attracted to a bad boy persona during their most fertile period, right before their menstrual cycle.
However a more intriguing reason is the personality type dubbed The Dark Triad – Narcissism, Machiavellianism and psychopathy. Some people are cursed/gifted by The Powers Above with this. Most men score highly on this, some more than others.
Yes, the bad boys do get the girls. Trust me, it’s not as fun as is sounds, especially if you want to be a nice guy. Bad boys do NOT get the girls they want to be with except for brief sexual encounters.
It can be a very heavy cross to bear when you want to settle down. You really have to make an effort to counter this. At least that’s what I heard from a friend of a friend. The higher you score on the Dark Triad personality traits, the more sexual partners you have.
It’s just evolution.
Don’t hate the player, hate the game.
