    Dating and relationship coach Toni Coleman discusses the definition of a bad boy and whether or not women are really more attracted to them than nice guys.

    Host: Is it true that women are more attracted to bad boys than nice guys?

    Toni Coleman: Well, I think it probably is true. There is, as you can imagine a lot of debate on this one, but I think that the most part women are more attracted to bad boys because women go for intensity. There is something about somebody that has this unpredictability, this intense personality; they are not too easy; they are not too accommodating. It's just more -- it feels for many women to be more interesting. They are never bored and women will often talk about being bored is like one of the worst things that can happen when they are with a guy.

    That they really look for somebody that keeps them interested, it keeps them on their toes. So, unfortunately this unpredictable, unreliable behavior is often sort of confused with guys that are unreliable, maybe cheaters, maybe that have some really bad traits and that's where women have to really be careful because what they are really attracted to is the sense of intensity and what they are really getting maybe is somebody really bad.
