Why women like Bad Boys.......


They're famed as much for their work and talent as they are for their dark traits, then be it their womanising behaviour or for being moody, aggresive and tempremental. Yet there's something about such 'bad boys' that makes them insanely likeable to the opposite sex. Check this out. Be it Shane Warne or Salman Khan or Sanjay Dutt or Colin Farrell, they continue to enjoy an ever growing female fan following.

As most experts will tell you, women associate these 'bad' traits with masculinity. From time immemorial, it's been men like warriors, gladiators, soldiers, etc, who've set feminine pulses racing. The intersting thing about bad boy is that they exude a kind of untamed masculinity, confidence and independence that women absolutely dig. And just like a woman's feminine charms turn a man on, this overt masculinity is almost like a natural aphrodisiac for the ladies.

"Some women love men with unconventional traits. Not only do these traits make them attractive, it also makes them more sexually appealing. Women get the feeling that these 'macho' men can satisfy them better than the usual, run-of-the-mill kind of men will be able to," explains clinical psychologist Seema Hingorrany. According to her, these kind of men give women an adrenaline rush.

"That apart, bad boys are famous and these women find it enjoyable and exciting to be in their company and be known as their friends," Seema adds.

Dr Kanan Khatau Chikhal, clinical and health psychologist says, "Most of these women who fall for these kind of men are intimidated by the outside world. They are shy by nature and are instantly attracted to someone who can take on the world, protect them and take care of them."

The interesting thing about bad boys is that they are a potent mix of confidence, indifference, mystery, intrigue and most importantly, excitement. Nothing they do is conventional or as per the rule book. As for their women, these bad boy knows how to tell her just what she wants to hear.

Seema, however, quickly warns that this fascination is just a passing phase and that as women mature and start thinking of long-term relationships and marriage, stability is the most important quality they look for.

They are confident
Yes, bad boys wouldn't be able to pull off half their antics if they weren't brimming with confidence. The intersting this is that this attitude of confidence overflows into everything that they do, be it the friends they make, the food they eat, the car or bike they drive, the way they drive, the way they order their drinks and even the way they talk to other women, even though the girlfriend may be just a step behind. And no matter what, such overt confidence is a major major turn on for women.

They are indifferent
They just don't give a damn. Rule books are not applicable to them and when it comes to getting things done, it's either their way of the highway. You can't expect to change him, or set him straight as they make their rules and believe that life is to be lived on the edge. Take it or leave it, that's the attitude they flaunt and that's one reason why they fare so well with women.

They are exciting and adventurous
Among the most prominent characteristics you'd find abundantly in bad boys is their love for excitement and adventure. According to them, if they aren't living on the wild side, they aren't living at all. Bad boys are always testing the boundaries and pushing the envelope when it comes to their life and women just can't get enough of this attitude. They find it intriguing and extremely exciting. And when you put exciting and adventurous beside the other rebellious traits, it sends women into a tizzy.

They are challenging and mysterious

They are very masculine
This often goes hand-in-hand with being confident, indifferent, exciting, adventurous... etc. Bad boys are often rugged and in-control.

They speak clearly and confidently, they look you in the eye, they are passionate about what they believe in... but most importantly, they still know how to treat a lady and make her feel good.

They give women a feeling of power
It's rightly said that the illusion of control is often more powerful than power itself. And when it comes to bad boys, they exude an air of power like no other, thus giving their women an air of strength and togetherness. Also, this power high does eventually rub off, even if just a bit, on their woman, too... and she laps it up!

They know how to talk to women
One of the main reasons why these macho men are such chick magnets is because they are so confident, especially when it comes to chatting up females. They give out this 'don't give a damn' attitude and are knowledgeable of almost every topic under the sun. That's not all, they are not afraid of putting across their opinion or making their point. Most importantly, they know how to woo a woman and her feel good with words. Smooth-talkers, they can waltz their way in and out of situation is style and panache and consequently set hearts racing.
