Do Men Prefer Mean Girls?

We recently explored whether women are attracted to jerks. But is the same true for guys? A writer for How About We says women are "mean if we don't really want to settle down with one guy (but we don't feel like being 100 percent single)." Also, she adds, "We might continue the tradition of meanness if we’ve grown up with it in our own families." But is all this a turn-on for guys?



Men’s Fitness thinks it is, for the following reasons:

1) The "Hard to Get" Factor: Just as Groucho Marx said, "I don’t care to belong to any club that will have me as a member." Sadly, if a woman is not interested in a man, he might be more interested.

2) Men Are Commitment Challenged: If a woman isn't nice to a guy, it gives him an "out." Meaning he doesn't have to get married and have babies anytime soon.

3) Too Much Media: Pop culture portrays mean girls as sexy, and guys are confused.

4) "Mommy" Issues: If his mom was like Mommie Dearest, odds are he's looking for the same. Do you think guys prefer mean girls?

    I think men prefer nice, sweet girls that they can have fun with. Who wants a mean girl that is cruel to them and to others. Mean is not attractive at all.

    Men prefer any woman who can satisfy their needs. When the cost becomes greater than the value received any man worth his testosterone will split and move on to greener pastures.

    Hell no. Girls acting mean is a quick way to a spanked bottom. And the sidewalk. I mean, unless mean is the game we have agreed upon before money changes hands. I mean, er...

    I think there's only two options here: a pushover or a mean girl. There IS an in between.

    i don't think so, not because they're mean anyway.
    More confidence again, and the mean ones tend to atleast appear confident.

    'Meanness' is almost always a cover-up for for more serious problems. Being 'mean' is a protective measure that enables a female to feel safer than she normally would.

    It's almost like a kitten who will puff themselves up, with all their coat standing on end to make themselves appear as LARGE as possible in the hopes that the adversary will be intimidated into going away.

    Just yesterday, my neighbors rescued a kitten thrown from a Beamer in a plastic bag out the window. Josh saw it from his balcony, ran downstairs, crossed the street and saved the munchkin from further injury.

    Brought the kitten to my patio and introduced her to my 4-year old Max, a tuxedo cat and she immediately became 4 times bigger than she was, before meeting Max. She was protecting herself and we all laughed at her efforts. So tiny, so brave, so lucky!

    Kittens are cute. I have 9 right now thanks to some productive cats. But for a cat to become 4 times bigger from piloerection (hair/fur standing up) seems somewhat unfeasible... must have very long fur...

    That was only a guess Will, a writer's license to tell a story and possibly embellish upon it. I had just posted about my 4-year old Max and silly me, it kinda' stuck.

    I didn't know you were the 'content police' - I'll try and be more cognizant of that! tacky

    No one wants a mean mate but I do like it when my mate can put his foot down before someone crosses the line, that is being strong willed not mean!!!

    I don't like weak willed people!!!

    I don't and none of my close male friends seem to. So as far as I can tell, the answer is no.
