I remember having a discussion with the younger guy I’ve been seeing for the past few weeks. He made a comment about how I “needed a man with edge” or something.
I thought about it and realized that I feel like I am over the edgy dudes. In fact, they kind of annoy me mostly because it’s just a bunch of bad boy bravado. There usually is a super kind, generous guy underneath all the hype.
I can’t seem to meet the type that I am drawn to: square, a little corny, and not at all the bad boy type. Tattoos, piercing, earring, or whatever the bad boy uniform is doesn’t do it for me. I like them clean cut and polite. I did meet someone recently that seemed to be the type but after our first date, I got the bad boy edgy vibe!
Do you think that bad boys and “good girls gone bad” types lose their appeal as we get older? If you really think about it, this is the type you usually seek out when you aren’t looking for anything meaningful. How do we end up in relationships and pseudo-relationships with them?
Is it habit that we keep picking the wrong people or are we intentionally avoiding The One type candidates?
Has anyone ever told you that you were “too nice” or have you said that to someone you met?
If you meet someone who is a keeper but they have a little “edge” to them, do you take them seriously or just have fun with them.
