Are shy women more likely to be sexually attracted to bad boys?

Again a question to get more detailed information about the bad boy phenomenon.
As you probably know, I am very interested in this whole topic. Please feel free to write your opinion about whether shy women are more attracted to bad boys in the comments. Also, if you have anything else that comes to your mind about the bad boy topic, please feel free to write it in the comments.

To make one thing clear: when i write good guys, i don't mean nice guys who have no balls in their pants and are shy losers (nothing against shy men, i used to be very shy myself), but i mean men who are just as manly, confident, good-looking, assertive etc. as the bad boys, but who, unlike the bad boys, are not evil, but friendly and humorous.
I would describe myself as rather shy and I consider bad boys to be more attractive than good guys on a purely sexual level.

  • Umm like bad boys could give great sex? Because bad boys are seen as risk-takers and that's kind of attractive but then again, with risk comes the possibility of death or jeopardizing your survival. Basically irresponsible and not smart. I'm looking for a family-oriented guy so definitely good guy. As for the sex, I don't focus on that and instead focus on the qualities of why I would choose a person so then the sex would be good anyways. Bad boys are more likely to rape, be into weird kinks, and probably disrespect you, in the long run, that sounds shitty and like torture so nope. In a perfect world though where one-night stands have no consequences, and families were taboo, then sure the bad boys might be a popular choice.

    • @modelun242 Do I understand you correctly that it is only because bad boys are often seen as risk takers? Imagine a good guy and a bad boy who are both risk takers. They are exactly the same. They look the same, they are equally brave and so on. Only one is good, the other is bad. 100% honest answer please: would you consider both of them to be equally attractive for sex in a perfect world where one night stands have no consequences and families are taboo? Or would the bad boy somehow still be more appealing? 😉

    • @modelun242 “Umm like bad boys could give great sex?“ Where does this idea come from? Why should it be like this? Only if a woman considers bad boys to be sexually more attractive she will feel that sex with a bad boy is better. But not because the bad boys could fuck better, but because the woman considers them to be hotter.

    • @tonytoutouni123 I mean a risk taker usually is a "bad boy", taking risk is not smart because there's a chance you could die. I don't know any "good guys" who are risk takers. I need more details about bad boys and good boys. It depends on the girl I guess, if the girl maybe has no father figure or had a bad dad, she could pick the bad boy. I also know girls who would never choose the bad boy because risk-takers are unattractive to them. I mean movies, the media, entertainment industry shows the bad boys are usually what gets the women roused up? Bad boys are unemotionally available and independent whereas the good boys give the girl attention and love, and that's not sexy? Like bad boys are a tease and they have to chase them or get their attention. Bad boys are also more promiscuous, so women see studs as attractive and a challenge to get them to notice them. Maybe it's not really about the sex itself like you said, but the environment and circumstances.

  • Everyone has a different definition when it comes to “bad boys” . I’d say when I was younger I was more attracted and dated the bad boys. And as I got older I’d say I go for guys that can put me in check basically. Like I couldn’t be in a relationship with someone that’s too nice and let’s me walk all over them. I think it’s attractive to have some one who can stand their ground and puts me in check when I’m in the wrong. Not that these guys treat me badly if that makes sense but yeah I just couldn’t be with a guy that’s toooooo nice if that makes sense..

    • @itsasecret26 I totally understand that you don't want someone who lets you walk all over him and who is always nice and sticks to your ass. I think no woman wants someone like this. But that’s not the type of guy I refer to when I talk about „good guys“! can you remember something that a bad boy did in the past that you found attractive and that made you consider him a bad boy? And at what age did it change with you?

    • Ok. Sorry for misunderstanding. Bad boys are appealing to young unsophisticated women but they tend to be difficult get along with in marriage. You can date bad boys to enjoy their personality. Women mature differently. There are some women who still like bad boys at 34. While others are smart enough to understand the realities of marrying and raising children with a bad boy. It’s kind of like wearing high heels everyday of your life. Sure all of us women like to look nice but the realities of wearing high heels is painful, terrible for feet, can’t run, fall on uneven pavement.

  • When I think "Bad boy" I think some of some shirtless heartthrob on the cover of some adult fiction novel that middle aged women and pre-teens read. I can see how some women (especially the more introverted ones) would like the appeal of a bad boy. It's something a little more dangerous and risky but the idea of a bad boy is still someone that takes care of you and is a nice loving boyfriend. Which is why it's so unrealistic. Like the whole 50 shades of grey thing, Christian grey is basically a "Bad boy". He has a troubled past and doesn't know how to love yada yada yada but in the end he's still a caring boyfriend in a way. I'd MUCH rather just have a normal sane boyfriend.

    • @zollo Thanks for your opinion. I have not seen 50 shades of grey, but by bad boy i mean someone who behaves morally reprehensible in any way and not someone who basically is a good guy

  • you can't generalize that... personally i like guys who are kind and non-violent... don't like bad tempers of any kind... i don't mind if they're shy or don't have balls/guts i like to give a blowjob to a guy that's respectful and also grateful rather than a guy who forces himself on me.

    • @chrissykerdock 😂😂 What did you vote for in the poll?

    • F is the one i chose.

    • @chrissykerdock 1. has it always been like this or was there a time when you preferred bad boys? 2. are you more interested in one-night stands / fuck boy relationships or serious long-term relationships?

  • Again, ALL women are different! Some may be, some may not be!

  • I mean, im super shy, but bad bad guys srent my thing. I love bsd good guys though! Like a guy who is super alpha, but loves me to pieces

    • @gotcha_writer10 Bad good guy? What’s that? 🙈 being alpha has nothing to do with being good or bad. It just means that the guy is a leader. He can be a good leader or an evil leader

  • I am more sexually (even romantically) attracted to good guys. But by "good guys" I don't mean the wimpy, milktoast type who everyone pushes around and walks all over like a carpet mat. I mean one matching the description of a good guy you wrote about when asking the question. That is my idea of the perfect guy to fall in love with. One of strong character who looks you in the eye when they talk to you, whose word is his bond, is responsible and dependable. One I'd feel safe as a bank walking with down any dark, dangerous alley in the world.

    I haven't dated a bad boy but in my circle of friends I've known a few and the girls they they dated. To me there are two types of bad boys. The first is a guy who pretends to be a bad boy because he feels he can score on more girls in that role. Second, is a truly bad "bad boy" who, in my opinion, tends to be mean, uncaring, self-centered and high maintenance beyond words. Are there good "bad boys" I don't know. The term itself is an oxymoron so I think not. But it will be interesting to hear other girls opinions base on their experiences with bad boys as I've only known them socially.

    • Thanks for your opinion!

    • “The term itself is an oxymoron so I think not“ 💯 Finally someone who gets it. There is no such thing as a good “bad boy”

  • So I took the liberty to read some of your comments here to understand where you are coming from. To answer your question, it depends on the individual person. We are human beings just like you are, and so what we like is different from people to people. I'm curious as to why you want to "fake this whole bad boy image". Is it only to get girls who are into bad boys? I mean what is the point of all this if you can't find someone who will love you for who you truly are? Façade fades as time goes.

    • @alicethenguyener “Is it only to get girls who are into bad boys?” It is for both: 1. to get girls who are into bad boys (cause I believe that most girls are into bad boys) and 2. to make sure, that my long-term girlfriend and future wife won’t be attracted to bad boys at all. With this question I wanted to check a study that found out that "shyness" is positively correlated with "being attracted to bad boys". And as you can see from the results, it seems to be true. Almost all non shy women claim that they prefer Good guys. This is an important information for me, because with this I know that if one day I am looking for a long term partner, I will only date non shy women “Façade fades as time goes.“ The facade fades as time goes, but that won’t be a problem since the facade only has to last for one night each time. I only plan to fake the Image for short-term mating. In a long term relationship I won’t pretend at all but be 100% as I am and in addition I will make sure that my girlfriend will not be attracted to the bad boy type cause I don’t want her to be attracted to these 🤬🤬🤬 To ultimately find out if I should fake the Bad image for casual dating/one night stands or rather just be myself, I'm going to make 2 Tinder profiles of myself. In the first one I will present myself the way I am, in the second one I will present myself as a bad boy. The profile that generates more one night stands within a certain period of time then decides whether I will fake the Bad Boy Image in the future or not. But as I said, I will never fake anything when looking for a long-term relationship.

    • By the way: Thanks for your opinion!

  • It seems to be portrayed that way in movies but in real life all the real shy girls I've seen were rather attracted to other shy boys.

    • @wemix Ok thanks for your opinion. Bye the way, what did you vote for in the poll?

    • I voted C

    • @wemix 1. Does it make absolutely no difference to your sexual arousal whether the guy is a bad or a good boy? 2. has it always been the case that it makes no difference, or did you prefer bad boys in the past? 3. are you more interested in one-night stands / fuck boy relationships or serious long-term relationships?

  • For me personally, I don't see a bad boy as sexually attractive, just a person that I should never be around and a person that my family wouldn't like. Not just that but bad boys wouldn't know how to treat a woman right, but a good guy would if he's a gentleman. I don't want a partner that commits crimes, is mean to people, and probably abusive and that's what a bad boy might be like.

    • @pbandj_nerd thanks for your opinion. But imagine it would only be about a one night stand or a booty call relationship. Which type of man would you prefer then?

  • I see that you're still obsessed with this good guys versus bad boys thing. Seriously, I think you should just relax, be yourself and forget about this. This obsession is not good for you.
    I would say it depends on the woman. Just because they're shy, it doesn't mean they're going to have the same preference. Some might find it exciting while others don't.

    • @menina Thanks for your opinion 😅 I can only relax after I figured out how many women truly are not at all attracted to bad boys, that’s why I plan to make an elaborate tinder experiment one day. I will soon make a MyTake about it 🙂

    • You're welcome. :) Ok, I still that's too much. Plus, you'll never know what's the preference of all women in the world. I'm looking forward to see your MyTake. :)

  • No 🤦
    You know, you're starting to show some incel behavior by fixing on women going with "bad boys".

    • @thatquietlass I don't care about your insult. I continue to do what I think is right. You are to stupid to get that all these bad boy questions have nothing to do with my personal success or failure with women. I would also ask these questions if I were on the men's health cover. If women are attracted to bad boys it doesn’t mean they aren't interested in me any more, it means that I am no longer interested in them! (At least not for a long-term relationship) By the way, as you can see from the results, I am very much right with my assumption. Almost no self-confident woman likes bad boys 💪.

    • 😂😂😂 I feel even worse for you if you think gag is a reliable source for data collection. Do you think porn is real too? 😂 Oh, and I wasn't trying to insult you. Kinda sad you took it straight as an insult instead of realising you do just post about bad guys all the time, like obsessively

    • @thatquietlass You still don’t get it. I need to post questions until I made my peace with this topic. And the good news is, I am very close to this point 🙂 honey, you are not a very bright one, right? of course I don't only use GaG as a source of information. FIRST I read a study that found that shy women are more likely to go for bad boys, AND THEN I checked the study results through GaG.

  • I don't consider bad boys attractive. They could have hot looks but I won't be attracted. They are too excited and so fake and go around flirting with all girls (obviously). Most bad boys I have seen have no substance and are jerks. They think they're some big shot because lots of dumb girls go crazy and start squealing when they're near. And they seem narrow minded

    • @hangry22 Thanks for your opinion

  • The idea of bad boys is that they dont listen to anyone but themselves etc.
    So no, I dont think they are more attractive sexually as I hate a selfish lover

    • Finally a girl that is not attracted to selfish character traits.😀 Thanks for your opinion!

  • I think it's the stereotype brought by classic melodramas or romantic comedies, where a bad guy notices shy schoolgirl type girl and all the romance is based on their difference but how love is strong between them and how they change for each other. I don't really think that most shy women are attracted to bad boys. It just depends on her taste.

    • @vanityfair748 Yes the results so far suggest that shy women are very balanced between bad boys and good guys. But what is interesting is that hardly any non-shy women have chosen to prefer bad boys. So therefore it seems to be true, that shy women are more likely to be sexually attracted to bad boys. But so far I have too few participants in this survey to get a significant result. What did you vote for in the poll?

    • @vanityfair748 Still curious about your answer 🙂

  • Lol I love this constantly invite me to the funny farm look I will reply the same as the last 56 times .. I like sweet guys with no jail time and hopefully a good job and money that don't have to be laundered first

    • @bratsondanielle 🤣 Ok, and how did you vote in the poll?

  • omg you are obsessed with this I think Didn't I read in one of your other posts that you refer to a interview with people outside nightclubs?

    U do realise the outcome of any survey depends on the participants right?

    People in nightclub... uhmm... well probably best to just say like this " my friends and I don't visit nightclub " cuz get me less hate lol.

    • @natashakir72 "omg you are obsessed with this I think" I can't count how many times I have read that I am obsessed with this topic in the last few days 😂. Call it what you want. Whenever I have a problem that bothers me a lot and which is not expected to disappear in the near future by its own, i study everything about it in detail and then solve the problem (if that is possible). If I just did nothing and accepted the problem, it would still bother me in 30 years. Fortunately I already have a solution in my mind for the bad boy problem. "Didn't I read in one of your other posts that you refer to an interview with people outside nightclubs?" I refer to various studies that I have read, the polls that I have done on this platform and the observations that I have made in my personal life as well as some YouTube videos. Among them were several taken in front of a nightclub. I also believe that the results of the survey done in front of a nightclub would be different from the results of the survey done in a church. But I think most young people go to night clubs from time to time. So I don’t see a reason, why it should be problematic to refer to videos taken in front of a nightclub. Also, the women there are often a bit tipsy and therefore probably more honest when answering the bad boy question. what do you mean with „cuz get me less hate lol.“? I did not unterstand that. And what did you vote for in the poll?

  • I'm not shy so I have no idea

    • @dawsonnata You can still participate in the poll if you want. What will you vote for? 🙂

  • I don’t know if other shy women would agree with this or not, but at least from the shy women I’ve met, I think shy women are less likely to be only interested in someone for sex. A large part of a guy's sex appeal for more introverted women I think comes from his personality. We’re not usually interested in one night stands or casual sex type things as more extroverted women might be.

    • @sophie_2301 Interesting point. Maybe I will make a poll about this some time 🙂 What did you vote for in the poll?

  • Hmmm I'm not too sure how to answer this because it just comes down to who is confident enough to say what they have too and do what they want. I won't speak too much on the topic

    • @pinky_what_why thanks for your opinion. And being confident is not at all what i meant with “bad“

    • Oki well summarize or explain a little and I will see if I can give a better answer

  • What does make a boy bad boy? Is it because they are associated with crime, disrespect people , taking drugs or what? As a sane woman I don't want to deal with any of this. If someone does, it's their choice. I prefer to go for nice people. This statement of women likes bad boys is so old now I think.

    • @hazelstar99 Thanks for your opinion

  • Every shy woman is different...

    • Yes definitely, but there seems to be a positive correlation between shyness and sexual interest in bad boys. At least so far almost all non-shy women have stated that they are not interested in bad boys.
