Good guys finish last. So goes the popular saying. It does seem that more often than not, they lose out on the girls to the bad boys. In the dating world, if trends are anything to go by, it pays to be the bad guy. Aggressive men with tough exteriors have been billed as more interesting as compared to their mellow, nice counterparts. They have that “x” factor that has girls clamoring for their attention and forgetting all reasoning by the wayside.
However, there are numerous perks to dating the good boy. Rough, hardy bad boys are a dime a dozen and often than not, they prove to be unworthy of all the attention they garner. The next time that sweet man smiles your way, don’t be quick to banish him to the friend zone. Giving him a chance could be one of the wisest choices you will make. Need further convincing? Here are some selling points.
He actually cares about his girl
Anyone who has dated a bad boy knows only too well how highly they think of themselves. Their needs come first and they barely have time to think of their so called girlfriends. Such a lady has to be content with catering to her man without the care and concern being reciprocated. With a good boy, you can be sure that he pays attention to what you need and will try his best to make that happen.
He is more likely to be Faithful
The self-absorbed bad boy thinks that he is God’s gift to woman-kind and he wants to spread the love far and wide. It doesn’t help matters that women throw themselves at his feet. Dating him means constantly being on the lookout for vultures that want a piece of your man. With the good boy, you can rest easy in the knowledge that he has committed his time and efforts only to his prized girl.
He is Romantic
A good boy in love will go to the ends of the world to please the girl that has won his affection. He has no qualms about showing his romantic side. He will wine, dine and properly woo you before he can expect the relationship to blossom into the next stage. When it comes to the bad boy, hit and run is probably his mode of operation. He may spend some time warming you up to him but it will be fast and furious and will cool down before you even know it.
He doesn’t come with a set of rules
Most bad boys come with a user manual packed with things that they can or cannot do. They are obsessed with stamping their authority and are terribly afraid of anything that will bring their masculinity into question. The phrase “real men don’t do that” is very popular among them. They will try to change you to fit their ideals of a perfect woman. A good boy on the other hand is willing to help and also very accepting of his lady’s shortcomings.
