So they drive too fast, engage in risky behaviors, and seek out danger.
The downside for those who are in relationships with that type of guy is that he is often unfaithful because so many women respond primitively to his darker, masculine energy that he has more choices available to him.
Write down every single time he lied, cheated, made you cry, did not return your call. Plenty of women keep bad boys in their life for way too long. Just because they dress up neatly, are clean cut and their hairs are not done up in dreadz or do not fall across their faces does not mean they are boring. Aren’t bad boys the ones who are boring because you already know that they are going to treat you badly?
Put it up on your wall or a part of your room where you can always see it and be reminded – preferably next to his picture (if have not thrown it out yet) so you’ll "see" how mean he is. It’s unhealthy because it prevents you from meeting other people. If you break up with the bad boy, it’s easy to predict that he’ll want to get back together with you for his own selfish reasons. There must be a reason why you keep going after these deviant types. Or maybe you experienced abuse in the past that you keep going towards what is familiar to you.
Or telling you how beautiful and smart you are when you’re down. If you feel like you need it, see a therapist along your way to breaking your bad boy habit. A lot of women fall for bad boy types because they have some kind of appeal.
Woman fall for the "brooding artist" type because they think they can make him happy.
