I see many posts where guys mention Bad Boys. I have a feeling this is a phrase that different people think different ways about. Who would you call a bad boy? Describe them.

All kinds...

Don't think like the crowd.
Fights in bars.
Steals.
Liers.
Has a police record.

Generally...a bad boy someone who is great at sex and doesn't care about feelings.

At least...that's CD's definition.

James Dean or Marlon Brando thug type, with cigarette dangling from lips, devil-may-care, high school drop-out, petty thief, lots of speeding tickets. These would be the old-school stereotype.

Today it might also include thug types, drug users, criminal history, cheats on girlfriends, promiscuous, possibly slaps girlfriends around.

The description can encompass many different types.

Going to have a wide variety of definitions of what a bad boys is. From people describing convicts to people describing self entitled football jocks on scholarships. This is my definition of a Bad Boy.

A guy with the dark triad of personality traits which women find alluring. Doesn't care what anyone else thinks of him or his actions he is going to go out and get what he wants. Usually extroverted, lots of confidence, and self serving. Women see the Bad Boy as a natural leader and are attracted to his confidence and his lack of need of their approval.

This article that was written by a woman goes over the Dark Triad personality traits and why women find them attractive.

Growing up, Bad Boys means gang members, thugs. People who can get you killed. Not these pussycat guys who drinks, smokes, do drugs, or cheat. Man, I remember growing up and watching so many girls falls head over heals over these type of guys. So some of those girls got too caught up and ended up murdered before their 18th B-day.

This is kind of what I thought, but as you can see other posters have a different opinion.
