    Why would a girl date bad boy, when he can date cool guys?

    We know for a fact, a lot of girls, like dating bad boys, because of their rebellious nature make them feel excited, but bad boys are jerks, whom ended up bashing up their girls. But if she date a cool guy, firstly he is a nice guy and he also have that rebel side that make girls feel excited too and cool guys are usually pretty nice.

    Most so called "bad boys" are usually viewed as  the "cool guys"!
    They are seen as having an "edge" or "swagger", confidence bordering on arrogance that most "nice guys" don't possess.
    Nevertheless "cool" is in the eye of the beholder.
    Teens oftentimes are more intrigued by those who are nonconformist or rebel against the rules and especially the adults. Most girls who go through a "bad boy" phase eventually settle down with a "nice guy". Albeit usually after a series of heartaches.
    Ironically a lot of "nice guys" avoid pursuing "nice girls"! They want to be with the "hot cheerleader" or the girl who stands out of the pack and "commands attention" whenever she walks into a room.
    However when most "nice guys" approach her they come off as nervous or they trip over themselves and say corny lines.
    They're not a challenge. Women in their bad boy phase say:
    "We ignore those who adore us and adore those who ignore us."
    You could stick such a woman in a room with 5 guys and have four them drop to their knees extending their heart out to her while the fifth guy sits in a corner sipping on a cocktail acting as if she does not exist. That will be {the guy} she wants to get to know!
    He's seen as mystery, a challenge, she'll have to earn his attention, if other women want him then his stock rises even higher, there's nothing like competition to make her bend over backwards to win a guy over.
    Chasing "bad boys" is about (chemistry) and (adventure). Settling down with "nice guys" is about making (practical) and (safe) choices.
    Every hunter knows you don't get to tell the prey what to like.
    There is a reason why duck hunters make quack noises instead of moo noises. One succeeds by either giving others what (they) want or they (find someone who wants) what they have to offer.
    And yet both men and women are guilty of throwing their hands up in the air complaining about what they see each other going after.
    Whenever you attempt to change others it usually leads to frustration. Once again you can give people what (they) want or find people who want what you have to offer.
    In both scenarios it's about (their desires).
    Lastly "timing" can play a key role. Most women who are into "bad boys" aren't chasing them in their late 20s and 30s.  By then they've had enough of that. Nice guys can wait for them or pursue nice girls.

      Hmm...to think of it, its kind of true, most nice guys in western culture are pretty lame. I do wonder why, maybe it is a culture thing. I've lived outside the west and they never lack nice guys, who are edgy, swagger and confident.
