This is a comment by Jon D on the post “Can a ‘Good Guy’ Ever Beat the ‘Bad Boy’?“
“The best advice I could offer the guy in this scenario is to repeat this refrain in his mind and eventually come to believe it … ‘It’s no big deal if she doesn’t like me. I am a good man and will find someone else.’
“When you believe that statement you will not be shackled by fear of rejection and are more likely to display confidence, which is a positive trait most women are attracted to and respect. Men should let women choose a bad boy if they want and not shame them or resent that decision, just like women should not resent men for choosing a bimbo. It’s not an outright rejection of you or an indictment of your qualities as a mate. Its just 1 person deciding what they’re interested in at a particular moment in their life.
“It may be a mistake, they may regret it, but that’s not for you to determine. Live your own life and don’t fear the decisions that other people make which are entirely out of your control.”
