Dating a bad boy

You Wanted To Feel Your Full Strength I dated this guy once, who was a parent’s wet dream. I am addicted the thrill of coming out on top (in life and occasionally in the bedroom).

Nice dude, had a decent job and would have probably crawled into the grave to follow me into eternity. So I dumped him, dated a mix of very good and bad boys, and years later you’re reading an article on a website that I started, that produced its first documentary last March and also scored me this awesome love and sex column where I did this sick gig for Armani. And the bad boys that came after him only helped me take more risks, test my will and push myself harder than I’ve ever tried before. While I love the lessons a bad boy can inspire, I don’t really have the time to deal with the drama of the boy himself.

These relationships can help you explore the shadow sides of your personality, the parts you have repressed or not identified with because the environment you grew up in didn’t allow you to play with it.

It’s fun to explore this side, so long as you don’t go full Harley Quinn and hurt other people (or yourself).

His love posed no challenge — his biggest dreams were to snag a nice house, where I’d stay an art director while he taught PE in an elementary school. I don’t need to date them to become a better woman.

I can just observe their risk taking skills or the shadow aspects I’d like to play with and practice them on my own.

Maybe we both loved breakfast burritos or seaweed salads or tacos. I’m grateful for all of my relationships, and I’m glad I had the experiences I did with this type.

And being in those relationships, and under his tutelage, I discovered how to incorporate those qualities I admired most into my own lifestyle.

Personally, I’ve vacillated between the two men for years.

I’ve tried to settle on someone my father could bro out with — which I understand to be the litmus test for good relationship, right?

You Thought You Could Find The Real You Jungian philosophy refers to the shadow side of our personalities as an unconscious part of the that the ego does not identify itself with.

The parts that you might have suppressed, because good girls shouldn’t like things like revenge, power, bat-shit crazy sex and a whole slew of things that relationships with bad boys often give you access to.
