So, I guess the word's out—I have a type, and I'm into "bad boys"

What I find ironic about these boys is that we definitely can't live with them, but somehow we find ourselves not wanting to live without them. They make life a lot more exciting and adventurous, but they also have the ability to completely ruin your life with a single blink of an eye.

Bad boys are some of the most arrogant, narcissist and heartless creatures to walk this planet, but they're also known for having this perfect mix of good looks, confidence, and intelligence which girls find hella attractive.

So if you're someone like me who isn't looking to settle down any time soon or seeking committed relationships just yet, it's safe to say that we're impotently addicted to subtle traits of a true "bad boy" which we can't help but fall madly for.

Here's a complication of 20 of them:

1. That confident, smoldering sexy gaze 

Hot damn, I can spot a bad boy in a crowd of people just by this specific gaze. Bad boys have this "I'm sexy and I know it" mantra, which this gaze reflects pretty accurately.

2. His mind game strategies are 10/10 

I mean, I'm not necessarily saying that he's Harvard Law material but he has a great deal of intelligence, which might explain why he's so good at playing mind games with you.

3. He drives like he’s auditioning for "Fast & Furious"

Doesn't matter who's in the car with him, he's running that yellow light and making that sharp right hand swerve.

4. Movie and dinner kind of date? Pshhh

Ever gone bar hopping? Drag racing? Cliff jumping? Yeah, if you're an adrenaline junkie like me then look for a bad boy, because they're the only ones willing to go with you.

5. “Lemme spark one real quick”

That frown, though.

6. His “drinks are on me” attitude

He guzzles alcohol like there's no tomorrow, man. Trying to keep up with him is a challenge of itself, especially if you're a notorious one shot wonder like me.

7. He never tries to express his emotions

Bad boys will never let their emotions get the best of them, never. He would rather get tased, publicly humiliated and then run over by a pickup truck than to admit how much he cares about you.

8. Buuut he’s probably a momma’s boy at heart

Behind that emotionless persona, however, there's probably a hidden momma's boy who dials up his mom on the reg and wears a floral apron whenever he helps in the kitchen.

9. He’s a walking perfume bomb

Maybe it's to mask all that smell of cigarette smoke or the scent of other girls he had around before you came over, but he smells like an Armani showroom.

10. He’s a Hypebeast/Supreme merch fiend

Apparently, the Supreme fanny pack became the unofficial "bad boy" accessory beginning Fall 2017.

11. His intentions are to smash and dash

One night stands, casual sex, friends with benefits, you name it. "Bad boys" will avoid committed relationships like the plague, which is great because you can't imagine what it would be like bringing a shithead like him to Thanksgiving dinner

12. "What’s it gonna take for me to rip that dress off of you?”

File this under compliments a "bad boy" will give you when you're looking good

13. "Baby girl"

He calls you his "baby girl"—but don't fall for it, he probably has hundreds of other “baby girls" hitting him up.

You're probably baby girl #134 for all he knows.

14. His aggressive expression of passion

He's not like the good boys who caresses your face or gently strokes your hair, he will literally have you in a semi head lock when you're lying next to him and he doesn't want you to leave his side.

15. Two words: Muscular. Arms.

Excuse me, I think I need to go sit down for a minute.

16. He has a budding rapping career, or at least attempted one

Think of any hip hop rapper (especially G-Eazy) and imagine what they would be like without that bad boy persona

17. Or if he's not the musical/creative type, he's probably in finance

"Wolf of Wall Street," my ass.

18. Despite having no plans in his love life, he is ambitious AF

Internships, scholarships, whatever it is, he has a career path planned out, he's ambitious and knows what he's going to do with his life.

19. He's probably from LA or NYC

Honestly, you're not gonna find a lot of bad boys in Wyoming or Montana. But head to any major U.S. city and POOF, bad boy central.

20. He's just someone you think you shouldn't be around

This one pretty much sums it up. Whenever you're with him, you feel as if either:

1. He's a bad influence

2. He's about to get you in trouble

3. You can't control yourself around him.

Indeed, it is time to be bad.

5 Questions To Ask Yourself When You're On The Fence With A Guy

Is he worth it?

views

Whether you're contemplating if you want to continue your fling with a guy or contemplating breaking up with your boyfriend, there are always questions we're asking ourselves. Ranging from "is this right of me?" to "is this what will make me happy?" But if you are really sitting on the fence and don't know what to do next, check out these five questions you need to ask yourself if you're torn on what to do.

1. Do I want long term or short term?

This is a huge question to ask. If you're looking to settle down for a while, your guy may not want that. And it could always be the other way around as well. Make sure to decipher this with him so you both know what you want and no one gets a broken heart.

2. Can I see myself marrying this person?

I know this is a bold question to ask, especially if you're not dating. But really thinking about if you can see yourself with them for a long time can make it or break it. But say you're dating and you're on the fence of deciding you want to break up with them or not, think about if you can see yourself saying "I do" to them, and if you can't, let him go.

3. Can I see myself living with them/how do they live?

I've seen many people get engaged and move in together and later call it quits due to the way their partner lived. If you've been getting to know your guy for a while now and notices he lives like a pig, you may have to wonder if you'd be cleaning up those messes in the future.

4. How do they make me feel?

This question in a no brainer. If they make you feel bad, why even question continuing into the relationship.

5. Are they worth it?

Is he worth it? I know I have had some experiences when I was on the fence with a couple of guys and I've had to ask myself the same question. And when I'd question if he was worth it or not, my gut feeling always came out right. If you're looking to keep him around, always ask yourself if he's worth it.

Girls, You NEED To Understand That Fuckboy Texting You ‘wyd’ 24/7 Will Never Give You A 24 Karat Ring

I finally managed to crack the code as to why your casual hookup will never try to make you his wife.

There are five unofficial steps of hookup culture: Find a guy. Get to know him a little bit, but not too much (because you have to keep "boundaries," remember?) Make a pact to keep things "casual" and promise to still be "friends" with each other. Then, hookup with him. And keep hooking up with him without any emotional attachment — just over and over again and never expect anything more.

From a birds eye view, hookup culture seems so harmless. I mean, what's more convenient than having a booty call at your doorstep with the swipe of a screen? When you want to hook up, all you have to do is shoot that 2 a.m. "U Up?" text.

Hell, I even wrote a whole article about the perfect FWB situation.

Yet suddenly—here I am, Elle Hong, resident "Uncuffed" writer on Swoon and self proclaimed fuckgirl who glorifies hookup culture above anything else, catching feelings and falling for the wrong guys just like any other girl out in the world.

Consider this blasphemy. Or maybe I'm just dying to make a confession.

A confession that I, too, have experienced the feeling of wondering why I was never enough for the guys I hooked up with. Why they never chose me over the girls they would eventually form serious relationships with and why to them I only was nothing more than a casual hookup.

So, I thought about it. I critically analyzed it. I "Aristotle-d" my way into trying to find an answer behind the impossible question of wondering why I was never considered to be anything more. Over the past few weeks, it essentially became my new research topic and now, I finally managed to crack the code as to why your casual hookup will never try to make you into wifey material. Here's why.

First and foremost: Guys usually (but not always) choose to hookup with girls who they don't see as anything more.

Now, keep in mind I'm not saying that guys will NEVER fall in love with the girls they hookup with because it can happen. It's life. Life is unpredictable. No doubt, people have fallen in love on Tinder and married a random match who just happened to become The One. But we all know what Tinder is really for. Generally speaking, guys will seek random hookups with the types of girls they think are "easy" and if they're desperate enough, it's definitely not going to be someone they view as their future wife.

If he thinks you're cute, you're within 10 miles radius and you can hold a conversation, it doesn't matter what your annual salary is or how many siblings you got—he wants one thing and it's to get you in bed. And until a guys find this girl who captures his heart and inevitably makes him want to settle, he's going to go around hooking up with random girls left and right. So in this case, it's not your fault. You're just with the wrong type of guy who only thinks of you as his sexual conquest.

See also: Guys want to settle with girls that don't go around hooking up with other people.

Ironic as hell because I just talked about why guys would never want to settle, period. But think about it—guys are humans with rational thoughts and animalistic desires. When they find their territory, they mark it. Once he finds a girl who is the one, he never wants to let her go. And he never wants to see that girl be with another guy or god forbid, go around hooking up with other guys. So here's the moral of the story to get my point across: I hate to break it to you, but bragging about how many other guys you're f*cking outside of your current FWB situationship isn't going to help develop the relationship any further.

Finally: A girl's "hoe phase" might seem empowering but for guys they see it as a threat.

Thanks to the wonderful millennial encyclopedia that we call Urban Dictionary, we have a definition behind this certain life style: A phase in life which occurs when a girl goes around social settings exploring herself, committing promiscuous acts and connecting with random people. For girls, it seems pretty damn empowering, doesn't it? For us it's a chance to let loose, to live a lil bit more and to run around as independent women. Nothing wrong with that of course.

But for guys to perceive this type of lifestyle, they see it as a threat which could arise if they form a relationship with you. It's simple logic here. A girl who's in her "hoe phase" is more likely to be unfaithful since they're always out and about with this person and that person. Put it this way: a guy doesn't care if you're a hoe—but he only wants you to be HIS hoe and not everyone else's. So you might think that it's a great way to express yourself and to enjoy your college years, but keep in mind that it could possibly be holding you back from taking the next step with your casual FWB.
