Labels and stereotypes
Dela Rosa says that labels come about when people begin to judge others. â€œThe â€˜badnessâ€™ may be based on something real that a girl experienced with a boy or just from one trait,â€ she explains. Itâ€™s possible that he isnâ€™t really all bad. Esguerra points out that he may even be a good son or an excellent employeeâ€”but with a fear of commitment.
What does liking a bad boy say about you?
Be careful about stereotyping people, but at the same time, pay attention to yourself and why you think youâ€™re attracted to a bad boy. Maybe, just maybe, it has more to do with whatâ€™s lacking in you or what youâ€™re searching for than what you actually see in him. This self-knowledge or discovery, dela Rosa says, above all, is whatâ€™s important when it comes to picking a boyâ€”bad or not.
