However you choose to define the term ‘bad boy’ — and there are a gamut of definitions — two things are for sure: One, he’s a gallis (player); and two, he will break your heart. That being said, why do you still gravitate towards them? … like a moth to flame … You know you’re gonna get burnt, but hell, the bad boy’s potent magnetism makes him hard to resist.
1. He has sex appeal
When he walks into a room, you can’t help but stare. He’s full of swag. You were fine the nanosecond before you laid eyes on him; then he sauntered by, and suddenly your mind becomes entangled with sheets and discarded clothes.
2. He’s charming
The bad boy has loads of this. He knows it. And he knows how to wield it. He stops to talk to you … yes, you … and suddenly all the degrees you’ve earned, all the accolades about being smart, mysteriously vanish. And you become like that poor hapless fish … you hang on to his every word … you take the bait … Caught.
3. He makes you feel safe
Somehow the bad boy knows how to make you feel protected. When you’re with him you feel safe … he’s like your own personal superhero … so what if nobody else sees it … You feel it, and that’s enough.
4. He’s exciting
There’s something thrilling about making a ‘mistake’. There’s something about him that gets your adrenaline going … that makes your heart pump just a little bit faster … your palms dampen. You’re standing, minding your own business, and he pulls alongside you on his bike. He revs the engine ever so slightly and your heart races in tandem, he offers you a ride and you see yourself speeding down the highway … you know you should insist on a helmet … you know what the consequences could be … but instead, all that’s in your head is when to mount.
5. He’s a challenge
You like a guy who will challenge you and the bad boy embodies this. He’s not a yes man and you like that. Here’s the harsh truth though … somewhere along the line, you start to think that you can change him. Think again … you weren’t attracted to him in the first place because he was the model choir boy … admit it … it was because he was bad. Now, I’m not saying that bad boys can’t change … what I am saying is that he will only change when he is good and ready … not when you decide for him to.
