Untitled[edit]

I object to the deletion. The article consists of more than a dicdef already, and I plan on adding more information and sources in the near future as well. It an important pop cultural phenomenon. Aldrich Hanssen (talk) 17:04, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

I hesitate to include this particular reference but it has some interesting stuff (see commentary on the Rake) http://www.seductionscience.com/archetypes/ Aldrich Hanssen (talk) 02:44, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Bad boy vs. jerk[edit]

I think that the recent change makes this article more about the "jerk" archetype than the "bad boy" archetype. There can be a lot of crossover between the two but they're not necessarily identical. Aldrich Hanssen (talk) 21:57, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

A jerk is something else altogether - an unpleasant person who would not normally succeed romantically. Colonel Warden (talk) 18:41, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

It depends on how you define success. If it means getting laid, there are a lot of jerks who succeed; in fact, the question of why the nice guy tends to not score while the jerk does has been pondered by many, although the answer was perhaps best expressed by Tony Clink.
