Women Crave Bad Boys More Than Nice Guys

The Bad Boy:

  • Effortlessly gets the nice guy’s “dream girl”.
  • Sweeps her off of her feet, fulfills her deepest fantasies, and has her missing, calling, and texting him.
  • Is NEVER desperate for women’s attention, affection, and approval.

These aren’t traits of dangerous bad boys – law breakers, woman abusers, drug users, and even murderers. You don’t need to be this type of “bad boy” to attract women. The bad boy traits in this article spark attraction inside women so deep that even their friends and family can’t convince them to leave you alone.

Many Nice Guys are Wannabe Bad Boys

Wannabe Bad Boys:

  • Modify their truck with bigger tires and put vulgar stickers on the windows prove how tough they are
  • Get tattoos and a crazy haircut
  • Wear tough boots, ripped jeans, necklaces, leather bracelets, and/or a chained wallet
  • Keep a serious face and to look at tough as possible
  • Talk and behave aggressivly

The most important part of being a bad boy is usually missing – the mindset!.

99% of being a bad boy is your mindset. Looks and attitude help a little bit but don’t get you results with women.

The bad boy attitude, style, and appearance naturally follows when you work on developing the mindset.

Women Have Always Loved Bad Boys

James Dean bad boy

In the 50’s, Marlon Brando and James Dean brought a whole new level of being a bad boy to the big screen in movies like A Streetcar Named Desire and Rebel Without a Cause and women simply couldn’t handle the “emotions” and “feelings” coming up as they watched. They reported feeling strong “sexual urges” and physical responses they weren’t used to!

Even though Marlon Brando and James Dean are long gone, women STILL obsess and fantasize about being with them or meeting a man just like them!

Being a bad boy, or at least possessing powerful and attractive bad boy traits, cuts through the nice guy nonsense and pounds her “attraction button” so hard she, literally, has a hard time controlling her emotions and feelings for you.

Bad boy traits flip her “attraction switch” and she’s unable to turn it off.

If you want to get “flipping her attraction switch” down to a science, read this eBook – How to Quit Being a Loser With Women.

How Being a Bad Boy Applies to You

These bad boy traits, which are a small part of the eBook 99 Bad Boy Traits, make dating, relationships, and even, marriage easier for any man. They separate “average” and nice guys from the bad boys she’d rather be with and help you spark an attraction inside of her so deep, strong, and fast that she’ll have no choice but to want to be with you.

Since these bad boy traits make women feel powerful emotions they don’t feel with other men, women will say things like:

 

  • “There’s something about you… it’s different.”
  • “Sorry, I feel like I’m throwing myself at you. Am I being too forward?”
  • “I don’t meet guys like you very often.”
  • “You have a girlfriend or wife – there’s no way you’re single.”
  • “I’m feeling things I never feel this soon after meeting someone.”

 

Here are 22 bad boy traits that make women say the same things to you:

1. Bad Boys Don’t Pretend

nice guys wannabe bad boy

Nice guys pretend to be someone they’re not. They pretend to be a lot nicer, sweeter, cooler, or more charming than they actually are to increase the chances of women liking them. They act one way with friends and family and another around attractive women.

Bad boys don’t change their personality to accommodate whoever is in the room.

They don’t try to be sweeter, cooler, smarter, or nicer to make a good impression.

Bad boys are who they are, don’t care how anyone feels about it, and their authenticity attracts women like flies because it communicates maturity, composure, and honesty.

Watch James Dean Just Be Who He Is In This Interview:

2. Bad Boys Have Authentic Confidence

bad boy daring confidence

Fake confidence puts women on edge. Authentic confidence makes them feel deep attraction.

The bad boy’s confidence is natural, deep, and internal rather than fake, shallow, and contrived. It doesn’t come from money, women, clothes, cars, cool houses, etc. Strip away the “external confidence builders” of the weak and nice guys and the bad boy doesn’t lose confidence.

This natural, authentic, solid, powerful, and permanent confidence can’t be faked and communicates you’re sure of who you are and where you’re going.

Women can’t get enough of this confidence.

3. Bad Boys Have Attractive Body Language

bad boy body language

A bad boy is more physically attractive to women because his natural, deep, and powerful confidence is apparent in every aspect of his life – especially in his body language. He doesn’t slouch, hunch, or communicate he’s insecure, unsure of himself, afraid of women, or caring what anyone thinks.

The bad boy’s body language communicates, “I am high-status, confident, attractive, sure of myself, and I do what I want, get what I want, and no one’s going to do sh*t about it.”

His body language parallels his natural and confident mindset.

4. Bad Boys Aren’t Afraid of Rejection

bad boys unafraid

Bad boys do things with purpose because they aren’t worried about what might happen, what she’ll think, or how she’ll react. If it doesn’t go as he intended, the bad boy doesn’t make it a big deal.

Nice guys, on the other hand, get weird and afraid to grab her hand, pull her in, kiss her, and get physical with her. The fear of rejection holds them back.

The bad boy isn’t afraid of rejection. When wants to hold her hand, he grabs her hand. When he wants to kiss her, he grabs her, pulls her in, and kisses her. If he wants to touch her, he does it.

If she’s attracted to you, she doesn’t mind, and even likes it, when you’re assertive and aren’t scared to take things to the next level with her.

5. Bad Boys Don’t Try to “Fit In”

Nice guys often want to be part of the “in crowd” because they think that’s the “attractive” thing to do. Nice guys follow trends, fashion, and styles so they’ll be seen as “cool” or part of a certain crowd. They modify their behavior and use the latest slang so they’ll fit in and be accepted. They believe women will see them and say, “Oh wow, you’re an awesome dude! Here’s my phone number!”

Bad boys behave according to how they feel and aren’t influenced by the opinions of others.

Women don’t dream of dating and marrying the “follower”. They want the guy who does as he pleases and is happy with his place in the world.

6. Bad Boys Don’t Need Approval

bad boys do their own thing

Bad boys wake up in the morning and live their lives to make themselves happy. You might think it’s a little self-centered, but that’s OK.

A little self-centered is more attractive than trying to please everyone.

They’re not focused making women happy and seeking their approval. They don’t care whether or not they have the approval of their friends and family. As long as they approve of themselves, that’s all that matters.

Start approving of yourself. Quit living your life to just to make women happy. If you live to make others happy, YOU will never be happy.

7. Bad Boys Aren’t Victims

bad boys don't cry

Bad boys don’t allow themselves to become victims and they don’t feel sorry for themselves when bad things happen. They adapt and overcome.

Nice guys whine, bitch, and complain about what’s not fair, what went wrong, and what’s not going their way.

Bad boys suck it up, act like a man, push through it, and move on. They know controlling their emotions is better and more attractive than complaining and acting like a victim.

Crying, whining, bitching, and complaining is weak, unattractive, and less effective than dealing with the problem and moving forward.

When going through tough times, instead of being the victim, make the conscious decision to adapt, overcome, take the high road, and deal with it.

8. Bad Boys Think For Themselves

kurt kobain bad boy

Bad boys don’t need to “fit in” or be followers because they think for themselves.

In psychology, having an Internal Locus of Control, something covered in How to Quit Being a Loser With Women, means not looking “externally” to see if you’re on the right track and dressing, thinking, and behaving like most people. Instead, you’re looking “internally” so to see if everyone else is on the right track.

Bad boys have a very natural and strong Internal Locus of Control because they don’t follow “the crowd”.

Think for yourself. Don’t look at everyone else to see what you should be doing. Look inside to see if you’re on the right track and if everyone else is on the right track.

As a result, others naturally look up to you as a leader and women feel more attraction for you.

9. Bad Boys Are Brutally Honest

A bad boy says what’s on his mind and tells you how it is.

Nice guys are more likely to lie because they care about women’s approval more than integrity and honesty.

Bad boys are better at looking women in the eyes and being brutally honest.

It’s better to piss her off with honesty than to piss her off with lies.

She may not like the truth but she’ll trust and respect you because of your honesty.

10. Bad Boys Are Passionate

passionate bad boy

Bad boys are very intense and passionate about what they do and they don’t half-ass it. They put all of their energy and focus into whatever it is they’re doing – and that includes attracting women. They display more sexual energy and passion towards women they’re interested in.

Women read erotic novels because they feature passionate and intense men that women DREAM of meeting. By the way, most of these erotic novels use bad boys as their main characters.

Look at 50 Shades of Grey. One of the most popular erotic novels ever written and the main character is the ultimate bad boy. He’s a bit intense and a sexual freak, but still a bad boy.

11. Bad Boys Value Themselves

pierce brosnan bad boy

Nice guys are full of self-doubt, self pity, and they hold a negative image of themselves in their mind.

Bad boys value themselves and don’t put up with anyone trying to paint them in a negative light. They value their behavior, mindset, and aren’t going to let anyone mess that up for them.

She’s far more attracted to a bad boy who values himself and knows place in the world.

12. Bad Boys Persue What They Want

bad boy flirting

Bad boys don’t think, “Man, I WISH I could talk to that girl… she’s hot!” or, “Man, I wish I could date her…” They skip the self talk and actually do it!

The bad boy gets outside of his comfort zone and goes after what he wants. If he wants her number, he gets it. If he wants to see her again, he tells her. He gets over his insecurities and makes it happen. When he wants something, nothing stands in his way.

Develop the same mindset – when you want something, take action. Don’t allow your thoughts and fear to stop you. Make the decision and move towards it ASAP.

13. Bad Boys Don’t Get Played

skeptical bad boy

“Played” means getting your heart broken because you’re too blind or inexperienced to see what’s actually going on.

Bad boys have experience with women, know “the game”, and don’t fall for the same tricks, excuses, and games as nice guys. They know when something isn’t right.

When she says, “Umm… how about you give me YOUR number” the nice guy gives her his number not knowing she’s never going to call. When she cancels 3 dates with 3 different excuses, the nice guy just keeps asking her out. She plays games, she’s flaky, sneaky, and dishonest, and the nice guy keeps thinking of how beautiful she is and overlooks all of the red flags.

With bad boys, when she asks for his number instead, he walks away. When she keeps cancelling, she’s a waste of his time. When she’s being sketchy, flaky, sneaky, dishonest, and playing games, he moves on because he knows he can do better.

Nice guys are naive, fall in love way too fast, and get their hearts stomped to pieces.

The bad boy doesn’t go “all in” because he’s smart, experienced, and knows most women aren’t perfect angels. He spends time with her, observes, and figures her out. He’s careful, observant, and knows not to put his heart on the line. He’s smart enough to always on the lookout for red flags that mean trouble.

Bad boys who attract a lot of women are smart, experienced, know what they want, and are able to spot nonsense from a mile away.

Since she’s used to nice guys and “losers“, she’s shockingly surprised when she meets a bad boy who knows better.

14. Bad Boys Handle Their Problems

Bad boys handle their problems and don’t let them grow out of control.

Women want men who handle their problems instead of waiting until they become too much to handle.

In your own life, handle your problems immediately and don’t let them become worse. When problems arise, fix them right away and get rid of them.

If your life is riddled with problems and you aren’t fixing them, women will keep running away.

15. Bad Boys Aren’t Clowns

silly nice guy

Bad boys know how and when to be funny but it’s not one of their main concerns. They’re not “funny” guys. They don’t care about “entertaining” anyone.

The “serious guy” appeal works just fine and the bad boy only says something funny if it’s funny to him. He doesn’t seek reactions and approval.

It’s VERY IMPORTANT to understand this.

He knows he already has her approval and doesn’t need to joke around too much and be a clown.

In the eBook and AudiobookHow to Quit Being a Loser With Women, you’ll learn how to be funnier and more likable.

16. Bad Boys Aren’t Sorry

nice guy apologizing

Nice guys apologize too much:

  • He’s 2 minutes late picking her up – he apologizes.
  • Accidentally bumps her – he apologizes.
  • Makes a joke she doesn’t think is funny – he apologizes.
  • Makes a comment she doesn’t care for – he apologizes.
  • Tries holding her hand and she pulls away – he apologizes.
  • Misses her call or takes too long to text back – he apologizes.

Apologizing too much makes you look weak, insecure, and unsure of yourself.

Bad boys don’t apologize as often:

  • He accidentally bumps into or touches her – he looks at her and tells her not to get excited.
  • He makes a joke he thinks is funnier than she does – he tells her to work on her sense of humor.
  • Grabs her hand and she pulls away – he ignores it like it never happened.

Bad boys don’t seek approval by apologizing for everything. Women like him or they don’t. Either way, he’s fine with it.

Be comfortable in your own skin and stop apologizing for who you are and what you do.

17. Unphased – Bad Boys Don’t Care

clark gable i don't give a damn

The most powerful trait all bad boys share is THEY SIMPLY DON’T CARE AS MUCH AS NICE GUYS DO.

Caring too much what everyone thinks makes you a nice guy.

Bad boys care less what anyone thinks, especially beautiful women, and aren’t phased by opinions that aren’t his own.

Caring too much what women think kills the attraction and pushes you into the friend zone.

18. Bad Boys Are Unpredictable

unpredictable bad boy

Women are attracted to unpredictability. As long as you’re not going nuts, being abusive, and smacking women around, then unpredictability helps your dating life.

If she can predict what you’re going to do next, like buying flowers or asking her out on a date, she’s probably bored and thinking of ways to “politely” let you down.

Bad boys are like the movie you can’t stop watching because it’s exciting and unpredictable.

19. Bad Boys Don’t Compare Themselves to Others

A bad boy doesn’t wish he was like other men. He looks in the mirror and says, “Awesome. I’m happy with who I am.”

Nice guys compare themselves to higher-status and more dominant males and wish they had their life, looks, charm, etc.

The bad boy looks at other men and wonders why they aren’t on his level and thinking the way he does.

20. Bad Boys Leave Her Wanting More

bad boys leave her wanting more

The bad boy causes women to fall madly in love and then leaves them wanting more for years and years to come. He doesn’t milk the date until it’s dry, stay on the phone until she’s bored, give her everything she wants, or tell her how much he likes her too soon.

Most bad boys NEVER reveal their true feelings because they know keeping their cards close keeps women close.

They give her just enough but not everything she wants. This multiplies the attraction and intensifies her desire.

If women always leave first, it’s a sign you’re giving way too much too soon.

21. Rebel – Bad Boys Bend and Break the Rules

bad boy lawbreaker

Women love men who live on the edge and don’t conform to a standard of thinking or behavior.

Since bad boys do whatever they want, they usually aren’t fond of rules and laws.

Not all bad boys break the law and you don’t have to go jail or prison to prove you have the bad boy mentality.

They’re not idiots, they’re just not fond of the laws or rules. They don’t like being told what to, when to do it, and how to do it. It feels like being a slave to society. Some think following rules to a fault is a cowardly way to live and some rules are meant to be bent or broken.

22. Bad Boys Don’t Worship Women

Bad boys don’t worship women and put them on a pedestal. Their lives don’t revolve around getting women’s approval.

Nice guys make money just to spend it on women who will give them approval. Bad boys don’t.

Nice guys also spend a lot of time coming up with the newest and sneakiest way to manipulate women into giving them approval.

This isn’t the bad boy’s mindset. He doesn’t spend time worrying about how to get women to like him. He just lives his life and when he’s around women, he relaxes and has fun.

If she likes him, cool. If not, no big deal.

Conclusion

Bad boys always attract more women than nice guys who don’t get it.

99% of guys who are excellent at attracting and keeping women around have bad boy traits that nice guys lack.

You can be a “good guy” with attractive bad boy traits and still have the same success and results with women as bad boys. The more you make these traits part of your natural behavior, the more success you’ll have with women.

Thanks for reading,

12 Comments on “22 Bad Boy Traits Women Love That Nice Guys Lack

  1. This is a good article, actually! This article brings up some very valid points. I went MGTOW several years ago, so I don’t have to worry about what women think of me since I don’t seek their attention or approval anyways! LOL!

    Keep up the good work, guys!

    Steven D. Timm

  2. Whatever, this guy been saying is real.. just got dumbed for a guy who doesn’t call her, forgive and comfort her when she is in pain. This is the Bible of men in relationships

  3. Article about being a bad boy who doesn’t put women on a pedestal… All tips are for impressing women.
    More like Fail Boy! Lol!

  4. Look after yourself first, live your life and live up to the standards you set for yourself. The only person you have to impress is the one in the mirror.. Go out with a woman only if she complements your life.. If she doesnt like you for who you are…. NEXT her.

  5. Hm. Good article, but this is a sure fire way to actually lose the woman of your dreams. See, we dont want the pushover guy but we also dont want the guy who is a complete arrogant asshole either. We want the guy that is balanced in his nice guy/bad boy dichotomy. We call these men THE GOOD ONES. The Good Ones know how to fuck the nail polish off our fingers AND apologize when they have offended us. The Good Ones know when to act selfishly and when to give us what we want. The Good Ones know when to be nice (in front of our friends, family, and anyone that is important to us) and when to be bad (when its the two of us and we are out running the fuck of the town.)
    Every guy has a nice guy and a bad boy in him. The key is finding that balance. Dont smack my ass in front of my parents, yet dont apologize for smacking my ass to hard while youre pounding me.

    Get it?

    • Everything here is sbout what the girl wants from the guy.. fuck that, be yourself and if she doesn’t like it, give her the hard “NEXT.”

Hi, I'm Marc Summers

marc summers of major league dating

I used to suck big time with women, dating, and relationships even though I was nicer than other guys, tried my hardest, and followed all of the dating advice. The women I landed, unsurprisingly, weren’t very picky or hard to get and I regularly got cheated on and dumped. Despite being the nice, generous, thoughtful, and loving guy I thought women wanted, once they got to know me, the attraction disappeared.

The day my girlfriend left me for her ex 30 minutes after hearing he got out jail was the day I decided to get serious, figure out EXACTLY what I was doing wrong, and make some changes.

The next 5 years of my life were spent focusing only on studying psychology, human behavior, effective communication, and leadership, and meeting and dating one woman after another to test out and fine tune what I was learning.

You know what became obvious very quickly?

Your dating and relationship problems have nothing to do with the women and have everything to do with your mindset, behavior, habits, and decisions.

Once you figure out what’s wrong and fix the problems in each one of these areas, your dating life will become easier, less stressful, and more rewarding. 

To share the powerful information I learned and make you better with women, dating, and relationships, I’ve written multiple best-selling books and have helped over 1-million men get better results. No matter how screwed up and hopeless your situation seems right now, I can help you improve it.

M.K.E.

Surely I am learning a lot. I have tried out a few tricks from the book I read about the 44 things am to say to a woman... I must admit, its getting me in line.

Vineet

I would like to tell you that they have absolutely changed my life. The girl whom I liked but she didn’t like me has started to talk to me. I mean you were an angel to me, I now have personal priorities and goals sorted out. God must have sent you to me. I don’t know how can I thank you for being such a helpful person a mentor and a counselor.

Michael S.

Mr. Summers. First and foremost I would like to say that your books, especially your the 99 Bad Boy Traits one, have impacted my life tremendously and have helped me throughout myself in my young adulthood. Your eBooks and the information you provide through the research example, quotes, and personal experiences have made my route a little smoother.

Jerry

“I read the first chapter and I was hooked. Because of this book, Declare War on Yourself, my life is truly going in the right direction in all aspects. It has been awakening and your personal letter hit me the most.”

Brian

Tim Ferris said one idea could change your life forever. He is exactly right. I took that lesson that you taught about power and I completely stopped right away giving it up. It totally revolutionized everything. I have become the magnet that You talk about. Girls are flirting with me and I am flirting back and having fun and laughing. They are approaching me instead of me chasing them. One of the best breakthroughs I have had was with a girl that has a huge power trip and I was always kissing her ass until finally I stood up and basically said no. A lot was said back and forth but now, she apologized and our relationship is mutual. But, aside from all the laughy taffy stuff, I have learned to do me, get my own self together, say no, stop kissing ass and chasing girls around. If there is any one thing I have learned from all of my learning is that nothing changes, unless I do. Thanks so much for all you do!

Mario

Thank you for this gem of a book!

Andreas

I want to say thank you! Thank so much for everything you’ve taught me. It’s been so inspiring and has been a big step in changing my life to becoming the kind of man I want to be. I’m in big debt to you. You are my hero. I am sharing what you do with everyone possible.

JZ

Dude, you rock. I appreciate your perspective, the information, tips, the advice... It's all been a helpful tool for me.

Jeffrey

Hey Marc, I want to thank you! You give a ton of great information, and techniques. My girlfriend has some stuff going on in her life that has forced us to put our relationship on hold. It would’ve been very easy for me to freak out and be a pussy about it, and call and text and piss and moan…but instead, I said…ok. I get it now! Thanks!

J. Hardie

Marc's advice matches what I've seen work best, and unfortunately a lot of the stuff he accurately tells you NOT to do, I've done... Repeatedly. So in my experience, this guy's advice is almost 100% spot on.

Micah

Thank you so much! It is a great read. I finally believe it is something I can use to finally stop doing what I know I should not be doing and help me reach the goals that I have always wanted to achieve. There is nothing like this out there and I am glad that I found you. God bless!

Fabian

Amazing! This really helped a lot and really put my game on another level. I will no longer end up in the friend zone. I wish I had purchased it months ago as I crashed and burned over texts with a girl I really liked on a dance trip - dumb! My confidence level is building back up and my beautiful ex-girlfriend of 7 years is now responding. Love It!

Rob

Hey Marc, thanks for the eBook. It is amazing. You say it as it is.

Parola

Much, much better than expected. There are about a dozen titles like this all over. Basically, you are looking at this subject because you want to get along better with women and have more confidence in yourself. You are a good person, but maybe people in your life are not responding to you the way you feel they should. I am glad I took a shot at it. It’s not very eloquently-written, but it’s not poorly written either. Despite the subject matter and the presentation, there’s a lot of intelligence behind what is said. I am not in the dating scene and I approached this book to learn more about confidence in general with people. Also, things to apply to my marriage. This book gave a lot of useful pointers for someone in my situation. But I think it is for guys in all sorts of different situations where they want to better themselves and how people respond to them. It’s not just a dumb book about getting laid. I highly, highly recommend it. And because it’s not some 6+ hour, redundant audiobook, I really feel like it has a lot of replay value.

Brian

I like this book it helped me get a handle on and understand texting. It's so great.

NielExcellent!

Finished it in one session. This book is mandatory read for us men to live up to our greatest potential.

Randy

Gave me an extremely better understanding. The book had a lot of very useful information and depicted the do’s from the donts very clearly. Highly recommend even for the person that might already know everything.

Ray

New insight here. Being of an older generation, have found this both extremely helpful and baffling. In listening to this, I can see how things could have been handled differently, respective of some of the more serious potential relationships in my life. There is some learning to be done here. Grateful for this new insight.

Joe

Honestly other than the Bible, best book I have read in my life in regards to making changes in my life.

John

Thank you so much. You’ve been like a big brother to me and helped though my issues with girls with your videos, articles, books, and what you do. Thanks again.
