A man with ‘edge’

Nice guys are great. In fact, they’re really great. But women don’t want to date just a nice guy. They want to date a man with an edge. Here are a few characteristics of ‘bad boys’…

Women love a man who is opinionated

Want to be extra attractive to women? Then have a decisive opinion on everything – from where you like to dine to what you do on a Saturday afternoon. Knowing what you want and what you like is appealing.

Women like men who are decisive.

Women want an M-A-N

Notice the capital letters above? Women want an M-A-N; a real man; a man’s man. Men should lead; they’re the ones who should be in charge – the ones that take control in every situation and go after what they want.

Self-love is imperative

A man with an edge knows what he brings to a relationship. He’s aware that he’s really awesome. He values himself enough to know that he’s a true catch.

A happy, confident man spends time doing things that are important to him

You don’t have to be a billionaire to treat yourself right, but you should make time for yourself. Spend time doing things that are important to you. When a man does things that he enjoys, he’s content and it shows. When a man is happy, he’s more confident.

Passion is alluring

Sure, you may not love your job. But when you talk about it, talk about it eagerly. Your apartment might not be the home you always imagined. But when you mention it, be exhilarated about it. Your family could very well be a tad bit nutty. Don’t stress – most families are – so be wholehearted about them.

A bad boy is enthusiastic about every part of his life.

Bland men aren’t a turn on

Women want to date spicy, assertive, intriguing men. At all costs, we avoid men who are boring, monotonous, or those who come across as very routine-oriented. Women love men who tell funny stories and ask interesting questions.

Turn on the charm

A man who is charming makes both men and women feel like he’s genuinely interested in them. You should value chatting with others and have an attractive personality. An easy way to be charming is to be engaging. A bad boy is usually so captivating and fascinating that all women want to meet him.
