I think it's mostly the confidence and the thrill of being around them. I wouldn't know for sure, though; Luckily I've never encountered one.

This thread seems to be saying that "nice guys" are boring, and unless you go out with "nice guys" how will you ever know? I find that nice guys tend to be wild on the inside( I think you get my drift), while bad guys are all a front on the outside.

Most people still judge a book by its cover. If someone appears boring to them, they won't even attempt to communicate with the "boring" nice type at all an vice versa. Those who don't judge by the cover are usually surprised to see just how different they are when you talk with them.

Mostly it's the confidence I think, though "bad boys" tend to be overconfident assholes. Guy or girl you should never date someone who clearly thinks they are better than you.

I guess I can see the appeal of a guy who's kind of an asshole. They're usually confident (very attractive quality) and grating (in the right way).

Whether I'm into the 'bad boy' type... I'd probably not so much anymore. One of the biggest crushes I had in middle/high school was a friend of mine who was a 'bad boy' type. Asshole-ish, artistic, a bit of a delinquent, smoked, popular with girls, and I think he was in a band too. Fast forward to today, I just got through playing the route of the 'bad boy' character in one of my dating sim games and I was so glad it was over. He was the "tortured" soul artist that always seemed to get in trouble, a playboy who attracted the worse kind of women, and related to a rich family that of course, he wanted nothing to do with. I was groaning through a good portion of the story, I wasn't finding any of that attractive or interesting at all. I'm having much more fun playing through the route of the preppy, kind of asshole-ish politician's son now.

These days, I think I'm rather hopelessly attracted to the more straight laced, serious, cold type of guy. It's much more exciting to me to pick them apart and find a 'wild' or 'dark' side to them. William T. Spears is legit my ideal husband lol but those types are pretty hard to find in real life if you don't really hang in those circles. I also love my geeky, nerdy brethren (the ones that aren't racist, misogynistic, homophobic asses that is) and they're much easier to find.

Basically, they think they want "danger". Which is a nice thing to want, until you find it.

Unfortunately the dream "I would die for Riley" guy doesn't really exist, unless it's wishfully pasted on the wrong people, and then made irresistible by other people telling them it's the "wrong" person.

(And yes, that's the second Inside Out geek-ref I've made on the boards today, and it would have been the fifth if I hadn't shown restraint. )

Here is the thing.

Most guys who consider themselves "nice guys"; do the nice guy things because that is what they think society expects of them. Deep down, a lot of them are just shallow dudes who only act out of their own self serving interests. They don't act out of genuine concern for others, only the concern for their own perceived image. It is a thin veil that is easily seen past by those who care to look.

Many of those that are seen as "bad boys" are those who refuse to cow tow to authority and act according to their own values, no matter what anyone says. I will be honest; there are ones who follow their own self interest who are just selfish pricks, and some girls mistake that for the real thing. But the "bad boy" that gets the girl is the one who is the stereotypical "march to the beat of their own drummer." They are genuine and don't put on airs or pretend to be something they aren't. They know who they are and consistently follow their own values. They go out and enjoy things in life without any care about what anyone says; they do things simply because they enjoy doing them.

It holds true for women. Hell the labels are 10x worse for women. Society has no pity on a self confident women who goes out and takes what she wants from the world. The "nice guys" are often the first to attack her.

Hate to boil it down to one thing, but I really think it is confidence.

I lack confidence, but have many of the other qualities of the "bad boy."

Never had much luck with ladies, and I'm not a bad looking guy.


I think women just love confidence, and "bad boys" seem to have it.
