Reasons Not To Date A Bad Girl
Page 1 of 2
In the hearts of many men lies the desire to be with a woman, who, in the immortal words of Ludacris, is “a lady in the street, but a freak in the bed”. However, this fantastic, unicorn-like creature is more myth than reality, and most of us chumps have to make the choice between good girls and bad girls. Now, of course, you can’t divide a group as infinitely complex as the female species into two sub-groups based purely on their social behaviour, but for the sake of this argument, we will do just that.
The appeal of the bad girl is obvious. As far back as secondary school, the bad girl has always been the most sexually accessible female in the town. She’s exciting and spontaneous, a little bit dangerous and more than likely, pretty damn hot. She can hold her drink, doesn’t take crap from anybody and loves to party. From a distance, this girl can seem like a dream come true, but up close, she can be a complete nightmare. The benefits of bad girls are mostly short-term and for any relationship more substantial than a one night stand, you probably want to find yourself a good girl.
As the name suggests, most good girls are actually good people. They may not be able to down a pint or tie a knot in a cherry stem with their tongues, but they are typically thoughtful, kind and well balanced individuals. Too often we overlook good girls because they are not as dynamic or challenging as their counterparts, but there is a lot to be said for the simple, down-to-earth charms of the girl next door. Against the odds, they have managed to retain a good heart, a solid set of values and a certain delightful innocence about them. These slippery mermaids may be difficult to get into bed but the effort required is preferable to being smashed onto the rocks by a siren and her song.
Give & take
Bad girls are used to receiving lots of attention and getting their own way, which can drain your energy and your wallet. Most bad girls will take care of themselves before they even think of you, unlike good girls, who usually have a strong maternal instinct and enjoy doing nice things for other people. As a general rule, good girls make lamb chops for dinner, bad girls make reservations.
Good girls tend to be loyal, practical and reliable. They try to live a clean, healthy lifestyle and you can introduce them to your family or friends without worrying that you’ll be embarrassed or stood up. They make excellent girlfriend or wife material. Bad girls, on the other hand, can lack many of these qualities and are likely to live for today rather than plan for any kind of future. If your girl’s priorities don’t extend much further than snorting half of Columbia off your coffee table, it’s time to stick your head out the window and scream “Next!”
