There has always been a narrative in fictional stories of novels and movies that ladies love bad boys!
In the movies and television shows we have James Bond and his fabulous suits, Dean Winchester in Supernatural, Damon Salvatore and Niklaus Mikaelson in Vampire Diaries and so many more.
Even with the percentage of female fans these fictional characters have, it could be assumed that the narrative is also true in reality. Women are naturally fond of bad men, scientists would blame it on hormones and law of attraction but who really knows why women are attracted to bad boys?
Why would any lady want to date a bad boy? When there are men out there willing to do anything for you and take care of you. Ladies even have more advantage with good guys because they are usually calm and understanding.
