Dear Poll: Are You the Bad Girl or the Good Girl?

In so many movies and TV shows (and male fantasies!), there is often a struggle between the girl next door who's smart and innocent and the bad girl who's brave, sexy, and independent. (Think: Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari from Laguna Beach, respectively.) Though I don't see these characters actually battle it out in the real world, I do think there's a little truth to these conventional identities, and some women fit better into one category than the other.

While being the good girl is appealing, truth be told, I think I might be more of the bad girl at heart. It's a total generalization, but are you more of the opinionated bad girl or the thoughtful good girl?

both. im nice and sweet to people i care about. but i can be a cold hearted bitch when i have to be. u have to have these two sides. thats how i got to be confident. i can be bad and good. but in behavior like, i mean u know dating and all, im a good girl. i dont date 100s of guys and fuck 100s of them. im a good girl that way. im a bad girl when dealing with people bitchily.

i chose bad girl, but only because I'm a nice person whose pessimistic and negative most of the time, not because I'm abrasive.. which I guess I am occasionally.. hmm.. I guess i'm all over the place, but mainly, I'm a negative Nancy.

I'm tough and opinionated but I'm definitely a good girl. I don't think being a good girl has anything to do with the way you speak it's how you act. I think that bad girls are the ones who speak their mind and act on what they said. The ones who are ballsy and go whatever they want whenever they want without the consequences. Good girls are more worried about what other people think and tend to do things that aren't too risky and that no one would think of as crude or inappropriate. They tend to think things through. I'm a Gemini so I have each of these sides of my personality that shine through pretty much equally.

I'm definitely more of a bad girl than anything else, it just seems to be my nature. I can be a good girl when I want to but it takes a lot of work ;)

I used to be a bad girl, but I gave myself a massive good girl make over when I went to university 3 years ago. Now I am such a good girl, it frustrates me sometimes, but I don't want to let out my inner bad girl if I can help it.

After a fairly rough decade or so that sort of hammered me into a new mental state, without apology I try to be honest, blunt, compassionate, hardworking, ethical and firm in my beliefs. I am at a point now where I let absolutely nothing stand in the way of my goals, and the goals of those whom I care about. As a result, depending on whom you talk to, I am either a raving b**tch or an awesome friend, which is absolutely fine with me.

Im a good girl but that doesnt mean I take crap. I am opinionated and I stand up for myself. I soemtimes try to look like a bad girl but like meggypoodles i cant pull it off. I have a good girl sweet face that I cant seem to do anything about.

I am sooo the good girl next store. Its weird, cause I really am not that simply, but I just have that look. Even when I try to be "bad", it comes off as sweet and cutesy. I hate it! The number 1 thing that makes me a "good girl" is that I don't have that selfish gene that so many of my peers (early twenties) seem to embody. I wish I did sometimes!!

I can definitely be both depending on who I'm with! I go out of my way to be nice, but I can be the biggest bitch. But deep down, I think I'm the good girl; I feel terrible when I'm the 'bad girl', and I can't even make a decision because I want the other person to make it so that they get what they want.

Both. I'm nice, soft-spoken, opinionated, and tough (firm is a good alternative). Those traits can peacefully coexist in a single person.

I'm a good person, but I wouldn't say that I am soft-spoken. I don't think those things necessarily go hand in hand. In fact, I very strongly stand up for what I believe in, and my values, and I think those values MAKE me a good person. This question is kind of silly!

I'm actually a good & nice girl, but I LOOK like a bad one. People always seem to think I'm a biatch or very arrogant before I've even opened my mouth. It's really a pity that they judge me like that. Thankfully people who really know me know me to be the opposite :)
