Straight females like badboys. It's a fact, and getting more factual as I go along...

Con will argue that females like nice guys. Good luck Con.

Con will demonstrate that females like nice guys. Note that pro didn't specify that I needed to prove that females don't like bad boys, only that I need to show show they also like nice guys.

Harrison Ford has been voted "sexiest man alive" 13 times.

Convince me Harrison Ford is a "nice guy".

(Harrison Ford interview- video proof!)

http://youtu.be...

Do women know the real Harrison Ford? Nope. They know the characters he played in movies. Let's take a peek, shall we?

"Star Wars"

(To Princess Leia)
Han Solo: Look, Your Worshipfulness, let's get one thing straight. I take orders from just one person: me.

"The Force Awakens"

Rey: Are you offering me a job?
Han Solo: I wouldn't be nice to you. Doesn't pay much.
Rey: You're offering me a job.
Han Solo: I'm thinking about it.

"Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade"

Elsa: [to Indy after a kiss] How dare you kiss me!
[She kisses him]
Indiana Jones: [pulling away] Leave me alone, I don't like fast women.
Elsa: [biting his ear] And I hate arrogant men.
(She pulls him to the floor to have sex)

According to eharmony.com, there are 4 reasons women love badboys-

1)The impulse to perpetuate what"s familiar. (Someone like Dad)

2) The urge to redo the father-daughter relationship. The motivation is an attempt to revise a troubled or distant relationship with their dad.

3) The drive to rehabilitate or "save" a wayward man.

4) The appetite for adventure.
Other women like the excitement, thrills, and sense of danger bad boys bring. This is especially true for those who have been "good girls" all their lives.

According to Live Science, women choose bad boys because their hormones make them, according to research. When ovulating a woman's hormones influence who she sees as good potential fathers, and they specifically pick sexier men over obviously more dependable men.

Donald Trump-

"The Donald" has dated and/or been married to some of the most beautiful women on planet Earth. He is blunt, not politically correct, and is not a "nice guy".

I don't disagree that females like to occasionally tangle with bad boys. Nor do I refute the potential possible reasons, especially the live science findings. However, I would note several things about the statements from Pro.

1) Being assertive and not allowing others to push you around doesn't make you a "bad boy". It just makes you an assertive person who stands up for oneself. Plenty of females do the same. Are they "bad boys"?

2) Harrison Ford characters were actually not so much bad boys. Always trying to act tough, but always a lot of soft spots for women and kids, and always trying to do the right thing. Scared of snakes. I would say manly, often in a comical way, but not bad boy. A nice guy in bad boy clothes.

3) Donald Trump has had beautiful wives, that's true. He's also rich, which doesn't make him a bad boy, but does attract plenty of women. Perhaps his roving eye in the past, qualified him as a bad boy. Today, his speaking up about what is on many people's mind, and being assertive, doesn't necessarily make him a bad boy, but his attitude overall perhaps does. If so, there are millions of male and female voters out there, voicing the same opinions. Regardless, currently more female voters dislike him than like him in the polls. And Melania says he's the sweetest guy in private. Maybe he's the one wrapped around her finger, for all we know.

4) So Trump doesn't have time for political correctness. Neither do I. Neither does my elderly mother, or the neighbor lady down the street. A lot of people are fed up with it. Doesn't make any of them bad boys.

At this point, I'd like to point out that there is a difference between being assertive and being aggressive or obnoxious. A bad boy is typically a bit of the latter, and yes, women often are attracted to them. While aggressiveness is a primitive indication of male ability to protect, and thus perhaps programmed in women's genes, so is high intelligence, a trait many women favor.

Most women aren't attracted exclusively to bad boys, but check them out, as they prefer to try out different types before settling on "the one". When they do, he's often the "nice" guy. As in, the one who meets their emotional needs, which true full-blown bad boys are incapable of. An adventure with James Bond might be fun and exciting for awhile, but it gets old if that's all there is. Women of different age groups also vary considerably in what they find attractive.

Besides, in the long run, aren't most men actually a complex mixture of nice and bad boy?

"Besides, in the long run, aren't most men actually a complex mixture of nice and bad boy?"

Not me. I've been insulted, attacked, and ridiculed by most all of the Liberal chimpanzee majority regime on DDO. And...women love me. It's true. I am not a nice guy. Poll the members of DDO. Anyone read my posts? I'm a full blown bad, bad Saurus....Few, if any, contest this point...

Women need a man who stands up for what he believes in...

Women need to feel close to their man. Badboys understand something most men never can or ever will. Women need to have an emotional connection with a man. "Nice guys cannot get this connection. Why? They do not meet the hierarchy of female needs when it comes to men.

1)Authenticity-

Women need to see both sides of the man. Bad boys will show you the good and the bad of themselves. This comes off more genuine and honest because it actually is. "Nice guys" tend to "finish last"? True. Why? They try to manipulate the woman. You don't think so? Does he buy jewelry and flowers for anyone else? What does he hope to gain? You know what. The badboy just tells you what he needs and wants all the same...

2)Honesty-

Eminem, the rapper, has insulted every group known to man, including women, yet in a poll of women that listed several male actors and music stars, women picked Eminem. Why? "He's the most honest and the most real."

-"He's delicious," says Natalie Din, 25, owner of Believe It NYC, a downtown clothing store. "Look at that cute little face of his and that tight little body. I want to have his babies."

He has a wounded vulnerability," one girl said. "It makes us feel protective."

Another female said, "I think he's sexy. No. 1 for any man is confidence, and this man makes no excuses for his behavior."

Badboy 101-

Women don't always realise why they like badboys, but there is actual logic to it. Badboys so often have been forced to feel and face their emotions and who they are. They seem stronger because they must be stronger. Life has forced them to their knees somewhere. Mentally, it's die or become inpenetrable. Badboys are simply boys who were forced to become men.
