It’s long been wondered why women prefer ‘bad boys.’ Sure, they might be sexy, handsome, and rebellious, but their lack of interest in being in a relationship means they don’t generally offer the long-term reliability potential women are often looking for in a mate.
Contrary to the popular notion, this bad boy bias isn’t as pervasive as you might think. Previous research has shown that the tendency for women to prefer a bad boy is actually just temporary.
You know how sometimes after one-too-many mojitos that guy from marketing (you know, the one with the uni-brow) starts to look way cuter than he usually does (aka the “Beer Goggles” effect)?
This is kind of like that.
