Last week I blogged about the myth that no girl wants a nice guy. (Yes, we do!) This week I'm here to prove my point some more because some guys still aren't getting it. This week's myth? Not EVERY girl wants a bad boy.
For some reason, there is a myth as old as time that women want bad boys. While we may want someone who is wrong for us at times, most of us don't actively pursue a dude that screams trouble. Sometimes we like to play it safe. We are smart cookies; we know that good is good for us sometimes, too. While it may seem that we all go through the bad boy phase at some point or another, it usually doesn't become a trend. And if it does become a trend, well, someone is simply trying to shake up her boring life. Just saying...
Dirty Dancing is my absolute favorite movie. Of all time. I swoon over Johnny Castle just as much as anyone who enjoyed it the first time around in the 80s, even though I wasn't even alive to experience that myself. I think that Swayze is a hunk and I love his tough exterior in that movie. He's a bad boy, and they play that role well through him. If I was at that camp that summer and a guy was looking that good, you know I'd carry a watermelon for him. But at the same time, I have to admit something that I've never admitted to anyone before.

So even though we go through the phase of a bad guy, we want the nice one. We don't all want a bad boy, so nice guys, listen up! We realize bad boys are bad for us (I mean, we call them bad boys, don't we) and it may just take us a minute to realize what we really need (even though we probably knew it all along.)
Not every girl wants a bad boy. Every time, Mr. Nice is Mr. Right.
