It Took Me Years to Report My Sexual Assault, but My Story Still Matters

Were You Ever Attracted to Bad Boys?

With her rocker eyeliner, all-black wardrobe, and perfected eye roll, Gossip Girl's Jenny Humphrey isn't exactly fitting in with the prissy kids at her prep school. It's obvious that she needs a bad boy by her side, and on last night's episode that's just what she gets.

Jenny meets up with a Belgian diplomat's son, who happens to be drug pusher. She seems turned on or at least intrigued by his rebellious side and ends up helping him with some sales. Luckily, original bad boy Chuck Bass (they know his name even in Europe) is there to save Jenny from the dangers of drugs. But now that she's had a taste of the fast life, I suspect she'll be back for more, especially since she already has the wardrobe.

Although Jenny's appearance in the episode is otherwise pointless, it did remind us that sometimes we can be attracted to bad boys — even if it's completely stupid. Have you ever had a thing for troublemakers?

Weffie - I don't think a good tame boy could handle you! I always was attracted to the smart-*ss but then I met my hubby who I thought was out there with his spiked hair and vintage tees over button-downs and holy jeans, and fell in love with a complete romantic.

funny, the good guys always broke my heart! i don't really have a type. but i probably lean toward good. i'm not into drama, fights, poor hygiene, or motorcycles or whatever else is included in the bad boy image.

No,,,,,,,,, bad boys are a huge turn-off plus it takes way too much effort to deal with them. I married a good guy 10 yrs ago and I don't regret it for a moment.

It varied, I had my fair share of "bad boy" crushes. But those days are long gone and I am only interested in nice, "good" guys.

I like good boys. I know that a lot of my friends like the bad boys for the challenge they represent. They wanted to be the ones that changed him. However, I don't believe you can change people, people have to change on their own. And I'm not willing to spend my time trying to change someone that I don't know if he will. I like someone that is already good and with whom I'm going to spend a good time with.

Love the bad boys... but then again I'm kind of a bad girl. Now, I look for the reformed bad boy... All the perks of a bad boy without the risks.

I was never attracted to bad boys, but I did used to be attracted to douchebags, if that counts lol. The man I married, though, is a total sweetheart.

Eh, how about clean cut bad boys? Because I'm not really a scruffy, motorcycle guy loving kind of girl. I always go for the preppy, young Republican types. And let me tell you, some of those guys can be total badasses. Or not. But I constantly find myself going after guys like Chuck Bass. They look nice, but everything's a mess inside.

Nope, I always saw them as immature, stupid, and kind of socially challenged, breaking rules just for the sake of getting attention for how many rules you break comes off as desperate to me... That said I am not attracted to the "nice guys" either. They seem come off as naive and gullible. I realize that is not always the case, but you can't help what your attracted to. Sadly, that only leaves arrogant, serious, difficult guys...who I fall for all the time.

What I hated when I was younger is when guys would put on this facade of being all tough and "bad" and then when you get to know them they are just shy little boys. I remember when I was 15 my boyfriend was all talk about sex and all this stuff we would do and then one time he told me not to "pressure" him into having sex haha

Crazy boys for sure, but not really "bad" per se... But it's all relative, I'm not necessarily that "good" ;)

Looking back I've actually been equally attracted to the super sweet types to grade A bad boys, but I find that being with the bad ones is far more exciting. And stressful, but hey. My boyfriend is definitely on the bad side but I think I've tamed him pretty well. ;)

Thankfully no! I genuinely love the nice guys, bad boys just make me roll my eyes, whether they're just pretending they're bad or not...

Now that I think of it I always seem to have a crush on the bad guy in movies and TV shows ie. Chuck Bass season 1 of Gossip Girl.. no matter how much I despise their character.. there's just something about them that makes you want to bed them lol!
biarose biarose 7 years
Yeah.. inevitably.. but it never works out if the two of you have a different moral code and a different set of ideals. It just depends how truly "bad" he is.. and how "bad" you are!

Yes and no. I totally had a crush on Jafar when I was little (like from Aladdin), but I don't think that really counts lol. My boyfriend looks the part of the badboy (wears a lot of black, has facial piercings, keeps his hair in a mohawk), but is one of the nicest, friendliest, best people I've ever met.
