Dealing with a bad boy

Bad boys are charismatic, confident and mysterious. They want a woman who can hold her own and take care of herself. The bad boy will almost always be wearing jeans, boots and a leather jacket and if he isn’t riding a motorcycle, then he will be cruising in a hot convertible. Most bad boys just want to have fun without commitment, so don’t date this type if you are looking for a long-term relationship. Dress sexy, have fun and enjoy the ride.

Dressing for a date with a bad boy

While bad boys prefer the pool hall, they are not shy about pulling out all the stops and taking their date to the best restaurant in town. On a dressy date, choose a sexy strapless dress that is full enough in the skirt to straddle a motorcycle if necessary. High platform sandals or pumps are the way to go with your sexy look. For a casual date, slip into your skinny jeans, a shimmery tank or silky tee and your best leather jacket. Ankle boots or cowboy boots over the jeans complete the look. Wear your hair down in a sleek, over the shoulder style.

Date night make-up

Bad boys like women who aren't afraid to show their sexy side, so try experimenting with a new look in make-up. Start with a glistening foundation, blush, eye shadow that complements your eye color and smoky eyeliner, Kim Kardashian style. Add false eyelashes to make your eyes look bigger and wear a deep lip color like mocha or a rich berry color. Lighten your look a little for a casual date by eliminating the false eyelashes and lightening up on the smoky eyeliner and eye shadow.

Conversation starters with a bad boy

Bad boys aren't known for small talk so it may take a few tries to get your date to talk. Ask him about his motorcycle or car, a subject he is sure to enjoy talking about. Mention sports that you enjoy and ask about his favorite sports. Bad boys tend to enjoy the music scene, so ask him what his favorite band is and where he likes to go on a Saturday night to listen to music. He may not give you all the answers you want, but at least you will have given it a try.
