I can’t recall the age when bad boys stop getting so much attention from me. I’d just take a guess and say it was late 20s, after a restraining order and complete exhaustion from the roller coaster ride that comes with dating the bad boys. Now, I’m all about the “good dudes” and they are just as sexy.
I think men and women go through phases when we are easily swayed by the hot looks, edgy personality, with a little bit of crazy. At some point, the appeal starts to wane. My guy friends say the older they get and the more they stand to lose, the less appealing a “wild” bad girl becomes.
I just believe that as our maturity level goes up, the less tolerant we become. We want sexy, stable dates! Do you think that we all have a little bit of edge to us though? Do you think you have a bad boy/edgy girl vibe? Has it worked for you on the dating scene?
I’m sure the bad boy/girl can still turn heads and get your attention, but when does your “moth to a flame” attraction for that type go away? When do we start preferring the potential wife/husband candidates and stop dealing with the unstable creatures?
When did you stop being the bad boy/unstable creature and become someone that appeared safe and, you know sane.
