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?

mean girl

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.

    An example: A guy I met while I was in a study group told the group that his wife has a greasy mouth. He said he can handle it but told her that he was concerned about how it would go over in public. That's why I check mine. When her mouth gets loose I check her. Some time later he told me that they were shopping and that when they shop, they'll get to a certain point then she gets in line and sends him out to get the rest of the items on the list. Sometimes, when he gets the wrong item she'll tell him and he'll go back to get the right item. Sometimes she'll get smart with him. One time she got smart with him and this big dude was standing nearby with his girl and said out loud "that's what wrong with those n-g-er bitches, they always want to wear the pants. Total disrespect. His wife was being disrespectful and the guy was too. He said he had to step to the guy and he wouldn't apologize and the wound up mixing it up. The problem was, though, he was on probation and after the incident had to run. On the way home, he said his wife said, Oh My God, now I see what you mean. But he could have gotten locked up on a parole violation, all over her greasy mouth.

    Makes me wonder what he saw in her so much that he wished to be married to her. You can correct someone without being callous or condescending.

    After 30 years with my (presently) ex-husband we NEV-VAH did that in public and rarely in private. Sure we had arguments and disagreements, but on an adult level. I can't imagine the embarrassment from all the people over-hearing the childishness.

    We did too but never asked. He had his problems too though. Although, sometimes, unless you're real good and very experienced in reading people, some people can be very crafty and capable of disguising their dark side. And if you don't know how to test them, they can fool you. Mine did. A counselor, who was actually her counselor and I talked about it. And once you get fooled once, it's hard to get fooled again. But I was determined to raise my twin sons like my daddy raised me. IT HAS BEEN ROUGH! I look back and she gave me signs but I didn't know how to read them. I sure do now. RUN!!! We both come from large families with both parents (I knew both sets of my grandparents and even 1 great grand mother and father) aunts, uncles, siblings and cousins, etc. and I didn't think that it wouldn't be that bad. I mean, after all, everyone has problems. BUT DAMN! But I think because I have been there for my sons, they will be ok. I constantly give them good relationship tips. And in this world, you are judged by the company that you keep.

    Guys like challenges and nice girls are no challenge especially too nice. I have more guys chase me because I am both mean and nice. I think if the girl has a good mix and keeps him on edge of his seat then it will make him stay. Its how I've kept my boyfriends lol.

    More guys I know are more into the innocent, submissive type, or the kind that speaks her mind, but still listens to her partner.
    Mean girls are the ones guys always talk about when they brag about their "conquests" and they are the ones that they are happy to have a one night stand with, then leave, but they aren't the kind that most guys want to have a long term relationship with.
    Some guys, however, really get off on the fighting and arguing. To them I say "Have at it."

    I don't think so, the guys that I know have all said that a bitchy, catty, "mind-game-playing" personality is a major turn off.

    Nope. Playing games and being bitchy is a huge turnoff. It generally implies a tendency to be unhappy and high maintenance, neither of which are attractive.

    The hard to get factor has some allure but someone who belittles another to make themselves feel better is a serious turn off.

    Perhaps, but I wouldn't call them "issues". I think it's pretty f*cking hilarious to watch them go around being dumbasses.

    Why would all that stress and strife and ugliness be hilarious to you? These folks are supposed to be examples for you, not a joke.

    That's sad, Celeste, hopefully you have some teachers or coaches or church folks to admire.

    I do, no worries.
    And really, I don't look up to them in any way, shape, or form. They themselves make it sound fun and glamorous, therefore I believe I am allowed to laugh.

    Totally Yes! Girls, you need to read "Why men love bitches".... I was a "nice " girl until now, and now that I've taken cues from that book, my romantic life has completely changed. Yes, sadly, men don't like it when you give them too much. Remember this ladies: the less you give them, the more they want!! That is 100% true - spread the gospel! Quit allowing guys to take advantage of us, emotionally and sexually!
