I wouldn’t say mine is a ‘bad boy’ per se, but he did tell me (along with his mom) that he was diagnosed with Oppositional Defiance Disorder as a kid. I straight up told him that shit does not fly with me, he’s a grown man, and needs to act like it. Laughing

Lol, couldn’t resist this topic because of the title.

Definitely dated my share of bad boys over time… both in my college years, and a bit in the interim after my Divorce

Sometimes bad boys are hard to resist… especially so if a gal is in a “rebellious” state of mind as well.

Mr TTR used to be a bit of a bad boy I think (or at least he likes to talk like one once in awhile and the stuff he got up to when he was a kid, teen, young adult).

But here he is 40+ years later, and he’s very much a GOOD GUY now…

I figure I’m blessed to have him he’s a real catch !!

His Bad Boy stories don’t bother me much, unless they are about his sexual adventures… then I’m fascinated (call it the “frisky female” in me)… but also at the same time annoyed because I don’t really want to hear about his sexual past.

I think he talks about all of his Bad Boy Days… because at his age (over 60) he finds it a way of reliving his youth, and still having a connection with his bravado / male ego… that guys like to do.

@MrsNeutrino:  Hmm…

 

I think the key is that they have to change themselves. They meet someone or have some experience that makes them want to be a “good guy.” I don’t think it’s possible for a woman to change a guy, he has to change himself.

TO @MrsNeutrino:  ok, got it. 

Agree with AlwaysSunny: … as I am over 50 and been around the block a few times I have to say, NEVER have I met a man who any gal was “intentionally able to change”… Men HAVE TO DO IT FOR THEMSELVES.  Period.

Which is WHY so often on the EMOTIONAL Board we tell the gals, that if they find themselves in a situation with a guy who is treating them badly… it won’t matter WHAT THEY DO… a guy has to do it for themselves.

Sad, that us women don’t seem to understand this… and thereby end up wasting too much time on guys who DON’T DESERVE US !!

PS… In my experience… when a guy tells you something BELIEVE HIM !!  This dude is warning you that you are a good girl, and don’t deserve to be treated the way he treats women.  Consider yourself warned… otherwise you’ll be setting yourself up for disappointment and heartache !!  Been there, done that.  And it was a killer.

FH looks like a “bad boy” but he’s definitely a big softie! I love how surprised people are when they learn he’s actually incredibly shy, soft spoken, and fantastically romantic πŸ™‚ I think it’s the tattoos that make people think he’s tough πŸ™‚

@This Time Round:  aww thanks πŸ™‚ 

 

@MrsNeutrino:  I’ve always been under the impression that if a guy tells you that you deserve better than him, that’s probably the only favor he’ll ever do for you. You definitely deserve someone who makes you feel like the only woman in the world πŸ™‚

Fiance was a “bad boy” long before I met him, but he got over the whole lifestyle and is settling down with me. πŸ™‚
