"If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything." ~ Marilyn Monroe
Most woman will tell you - bad boys are sexy. Many will tell you that they dated - or at least crushed on - at least one guy who rocked the bad boy charm.
I'll do you one better - I married one.
'Course I also divorced him - which (I thought) pretty much satisfied my bad boy quota for life. True to form, once separated, I dated several guys who were all the furthest thing possible from a bad boy.
Turns out - "good guys" have cooties, too.
Enter Crush. If it's a bad boy quality - he's got it. Musician? Check. Partier? Check. Emotional? Check. Tattoos? I'll have to get back to you on that.
So what is it about that guy that is so attractive? If we talked to a psychologist, I bet there's some co-dependence involved. "Oh, he needs saving - let me save him!" I think that was the appeal when I was younger, but things change as you
get older grow. At this point in my life, I'm not interested in saving anyone other than myself.
So, if it's not that - then what's the attraction? Maybe there's something about a bad boy that just seems more real? Or maybe it's the mystery - the challenge of not knowing what makes him tick?
Heck - I'm no expert. What I do know is a guy who is creative, expressive, and can carry on a conversation without using the number "1" as a word or talking about hunting or showing me his abs - is incredibly attractive.
He makes me smile. Which is the most attractive thing of all.
