The Boy Scout and the Bad Boy, Mr. Clean-Cut, and Mr. Mystery. They're the two prototypical guys nearly every one of us women has encountered in our romantic lives. Ultimately the one we chose predicted our grown-up woman futures -- then as now.

My theory is that many women will vote or at least have confdence in a guy depending on how handsome or attractive he is (I would ex[ect men to be similarly affected if there were 2 women running btw). I predicted Romney would close the gender gap because of his looks and especially after he tabbed Ryan who has that boy scout look to him as well that many women trust. both Obama & Biden have that "bad boy" aura about them that women are attracted to but many have a hard time trusting. Or at least many feel they have been burned by the trust they placed in these 2 "bad boyz."

I predict that women (or at least many more women than normally vote Rep) will vote for Romney as they realize the hits on the economy Obama has generated. Guess we'll kow for sure on election day.

I liked Ron Paul by far as the best and smartest guy running but let's face it, he and Gingrich are just to ugly to be President.

I've dated my share of bad boys, and I would never dub Obama or Biden as being the bad-boy type.
Nerds, yes. Bad boys - NO WAY!

Please, women are not idiots. Anyone who thinks Romney looks "honest" needs to make an appointment with the eye doctor. If you want slick...vote for Mitt.

I know right? LOL. Obama is definitely an introverted nerd. Charming when he wants to be but other than that, he's only really going to be relaxed around his small circle of friends and family. And he has a big old ego underneath it all.

Romney is an awkward guy, who also has a huge ego and hates not being in charge and in control. He's smart, successful and used to getting what he wants. He also strikes me as the type of person who can't see his own privilege.

Anyway, the whole premise of this article is dumb. Women don't sit around imagining ourselves dating presidential candidates in high school.

Here are a few comments to the post.

All I know is what my aunt told me regarding President Obama: "He reminds me of the guys I dated who would say anything they thought would get them into my pants...

Look around, those who married the bad boys/girls haven't fared so well. Having been temporarily tantalized, they mosty end up traumatized.

The reality is that America made a huge mistake in 2008 and actually married the "doper". Divorce proceedings will begin in less than two weeks!

This president seems more interested in snuffing out life in many ways rather than celebrating life.

Tinawina, of course women don't think about dating the president but you should read the article instead of posting an "uninformed opinion". If you had taken time to "read" you would understand that your comment is "NOT" in line with the article.

Your post simply shows you are an Obama cheerleader and you simply "voice your opinion" before you educating yourself on the topic of discussion.
