Bad boys and why we love them
All girls love a nice guy ? someone who's there for them, tells them that they're beautiful and would never do anything to hurt them.
But why is it that these guys are more often than not put firmly into the friends category while we chase that bad boy who doesn't even know we exist?
And even if we do bag that bad boy, while life with him will mean excitement, it'll be a rollercoaster of ups and downs, of disappointment and heartache. But yet there's something about an arrogant and slightly mean guy that turns girls on.
Londoner Annie explained: "My friends always point out sweet guys to me, clearly in the hopes that I will end up with someone reliable.
"But somehow they never seem to attract my attention. There's something intriguing about bad boys and, unless there's a streak of arrogance, I'm usually not remotely interested."
And while we know full well when we embark upon a relationship with a bad boy that it will not end nicely, there's nothing more exciting than going out with one. But why is that?
One dating expert explained: "Ultimately, every girl wants a nice guy ? but bad boys are just so much more fun. It's not that we want to be messed around, but the reason the bad boy is so appealing is that deep down every girl thinks she can tame him.
"From Heathcliff to Mr Big, there's something we just can't resist."
