Good guys finish last, so the story goes. The allure of a bad boy is found in the challenge it is to pin him down, snag him, and hopefully be the little lady that just so happens to have the ability to change his ways. Wanna show the bad boy who’s boss? Here are some tips on how to win him over and seal the deal…
Plant The Seed Then Back The Eff-Off
Used to constant attention and admiration from other women, the bad boy is more likely to pursue someone who doesn’t blend in with the rest of ‘em. His interest will be piqued when you don’t constantly blow up his cell, his newsfeed, and the like, and he’ll begin to wonder and devise a plan on how to get you to notice him. Show him your initial interest by being direct when spending some time with him, then allow him to reach out to you.
Show Him Two Can Play The Game
Whether out for a night drinking, or just chilling, show him you, too, can be just as edgy as he. Come up with a spontaneous plan, or just go with the flow and mirror his actions. The bad boy fits best with someone who wants to go along for the ride, not someone whose intentions are to change his ways.
Don’t Be A Nag
Let him do his thing. Is he going out with the boys for a night? If so, don’t send him the to-be-expected “Where are you?” texts, nor should you ask for a rundown of his night. Men are much more likely to want to see you and spend time with you when your communications are nice and easy. The second you start nagging him and questioning him is the same second you start to push him away. Before sending an angry text, or giving him a hard time for just being him, ask yourself how you’d want your man to treat you. Because honey, if you show that kind of possessive behaviour right at the beginning, you’ll certainly ensure a swift ending.
Agree To Disagree
Have an opinion. Don’t go along with everything he says and agree with all his at-times loaded statements if you don’t feel the same way. The bad boy is most attracted to someone who can stand their own. Someone who is confident and comfortable in their skin and can take care of themselves. So yes, have an opinion without fear of rocking the boat, but also know when to tell him that you guys will have to agree to disagree. Fights with a bad boy are less than fun, so know when to call it a day and put an end to a discussion.
