Well I prefer the bad boy type because of the looks they are projecting, they look so manly and strong but it doesn't mean that they are not good people. As the saying goes, We can't judge the book by it's cover. Each person has it's imperfections and we should always expect that there are persons better and lesser than we are. My husband is a bad boy type but he is a good person and we get along well.

Absolutely! Having a bad boy look doesn't necessarily mean that they are not good people anymore. I just love the looks, they looked more sexy to me! Thanks for sharing!

I think having a boy next door is much better but it seems that i ended up with both the bad boy and the boy next door type..i wish it's just the boy next door because a bad boy has a tendency to be possessive and would lock you in your relationship. what could be worse, he's just your neighbor. But anyhow, if you really love the guy, you'd accept him for who he is no matter where he comes from.

Thanks for sharing! I still love my boyfriend who is a bad boy type. I love him after all the mistakes that he has done in his life. It's his past! I still love every part of him. Thanks for sharing!

I am 36 and married to a great family type guy, but I have always been attracted to the bad boys. Don't ask me how I got with my husband???!! LOL He's so sweet, but I guess he does still have some attitude like a bad boy. When I was young and dating, I sure did always go for the bad boys and it got me in trouble sometimes. Wonder why we girls do that. :)

I like bad boys because I prefer a rugged look and they seem to be more fun! My bf used to be bad and now he kinda lie low. He still have the bad image though. Thanks for sharing!

I've been with my "boy next door" boyfriend for 4.5 years. We sort of met by accident, so it wasn't like either of us was actively seeking the other when we started dating. In general, though, I think I would be more sttracted to the boy next door. The bad boys are fun in that "omg this is so exciting and wrong!" sort of way, but really, is that the person you want to be sharing a bank account with down the road? I've had friends who've dated the bad boys, and it's never ended well.

My current boyfriend was a bad boy and I somehow I fell flattered that I am a part of changing his image. He's beginning to be a little nice and he's starting to fix his life when he started to date me. Thanks for sharing!

I've always been attracted to bad boy types but now I've learned that boy next door types are much more capable of loving.

I prefer the boy next door type. Unfortunately my first husband was a bad boy, I just didn't know it right away. My current husband is a little of both. My daughter is 13. She plays mixed soccer and does Taekwondo. I find myself looking at boys and thinking which ones would be good for her, even though she is not allowed to date until she is 16. But there are some pretty cute boys out there and if they are involved in sports, I know they are pretty good kids. I just hope my girls prefer the boy next door type when they grow up.

Bad boys can be pretty good in some ways. My boyfriend used to be really bad and when he dated me, I felt like a savior because he's a little nice now. I just like the bad boy image but I know they have a soft heart too. Thanks for sharing!
