Why It’s OK To Date a Bad Guy


Summer’s coming to a bitter end, and now it’s the season to reflect. With the good comes the bad, and while you may have gotten a great new job or had an awesome vacation, it can be hard to silence the thoughts of poor choices – some of which may take the form of a certain someone. Yes, ladies everywhere can feel my pain, reminiscing about that good-guy-turned-jerk from last April, but I’m here to tell you to stop. Here’s why it’s actually good to date a bad guy every once in a while.

You Learn What You Don’t Want

You meet a guy and it’s amazing – he’s so sweet, you get along great, and it’s on. It’s so on. And then it’s off. And then it’s on again. And then…well, you get the idea. After an experience like that – up and down, walking on eggshells – you vow to never let anyone treat you like an option ever again. Just like that, you learned what you don’t want. Sometimes, it can be as simple as someone who parties too much, but whatever it is, you’ll (hopefully) be a little wiser when picking your next match.

It’s Inspiring and Empowering

Bad break ups can be great for creativity. Hear me out here – after the sobbing, snotty tissues, and depressing tweets, coming out of the other side of a break up is like rediscovering yourself. Maybe single-you used to like to paint, so you pick up a brush in an attempt to distract yourself from your Facebook stalking tendencies. Before you know it, you’ve redesigned your whole room. Or you go out with old friends, who tell you you’re better off, and you start to feel like a gorgeous, smart, single woman who can find a great new guy – a guy who will treat you like a princess, because that’s what you deserve (and now you know it). Say bye to the old you, because you’ve see the light and you’re never going back.

It’s a Rite of Passage

Bad relationship? We’ve all been there before. It’s something that almost everyone goes through – not just you. Listen to your friends’ stories, watch a rom-com, and know that you’re not alone. So, you put your trust in someone who didn’t deserve it? Join the club!
