Bad boys get the girls, but the good ones end up marrying them…who's the winner here?
A cat suit is often uncomfortable, unflattering and extremely attractive. Wear one on a perfectly toned body and you could be the sex kitten of the year. But wear one every day and you could end up hating it. Much like a bad boy.
If men have never understood why women like bad boys, well, it's because they are so much like the sexy leather cat suit. They are aloof and like treating you like a prop. They are rude, sulky and very good-looking. And women love the fact that when they are with you kissing your ear lobe, you are the sexiest women ever.
But like the cat suit, you don't want the bad boy for the rest of your life. You want the good boy who is very much like that old pair of jeans. You can keep a pair for years on end, and that's what women want in the end don't they? If the men reading this feel I am objectifying them, get over it; women have been objectified for a long time now.
I think it's actually fun for men. You can't lose any which way. Women will always want a try at the cat suit, however old or committed they may be. And the jeans, well, they will never go out of fashion. So, simply speaking, the bad boy can have his fill of all the beautiful women in the world as long as he remains very bad - what that means he should be absolutely drool worthy, a player, and completely and utterly brooding. And the good boy - well, darling you have everything. You are the one who gets the girl in the end - provided obviously that you remain sensitive, clean cut and attentive.
It's funny, isn't it? The way women love to chase the bad boy and get chased by the good one. And if some lucky one gets a bad one chasing her, well, she goes down in the history books. No wonder Elizabeth Bennett falls for the bad Mr Darcy in 'Pride and Prejudice', or the way Little Woman Jo March falls for the unruly Professor Fritz Bhaer, instead of marrying Laurie, the quintessential good boy. But such examples are rare, in real life or in literature. But then what do bad boys do? Well, I think they become good after a while, and the girls just get duped.
How sad is that? My all-time fantasy has been to wear a tight black cat suit and ride a bike into a bunch of bad boys. Then I slowly take off my helmet, with Lenny Kravitiz singing 'American Woman' in the background, shake my long auburn hair and form my luscious red lips into a pout. And the baddest and hottest of the lot gets on the bike with me and we drive away into the sunset. Ahem! Let's get back to reality, should we.
So as we know: Girls marrying the good boys has been an age-old tradition. Monica leaves the gorgeous Richard for awkward Chandler in 'Friends'. And despite McSteamy being the hottest on the sets of 'Grey's Anatomy', everyone seems to love McDreamy, even though he cheats on his wife. As I said, it's funny.
But women get their share of this as well. Remember Julia Roberts' fate in 'My Best Friend's Wedding' where she, the funny, tomboy, gets abandoned for the peachy princess. It would be right then to say that men love cotton shorts much better than the edgy man's suit. Isn't it? Let me know.
Till then, I am going to remove my jeans and try that cat suit this weekend. Just mixing it up a bit. Ciao
