Men Like Dating This Type Of Girl Despite Knowing They Are Bad, Do You?

People with borderline personality disorder tend to have rocky relationships. But you are likely to be attracted by this type of girl.

People with borderline personality disorder tend to have trouble regulating their emotional impulses and have rocky relationships. However, according to new research, many men are attracted to attractive women with this disorder.

The research took inspiration from a YouTube video about the Hot Crazy Matrix (HCM) graph, as stated by study author and senior lecturer Alyson Blanchard from Bishop Grosseteste University.

Her earlier study examined the relationship between attraction in a romantic partner and their adaptive characteristics of psychopathic traits, especially how girls are attracted to bad boys even when they know they’re bad. Meanwhile, the HCM graph in the new parody video suggests the same relation but in the opposite direction, boys are attracted to crazy girls despite their own acknowledgment of the risks.

“However, the upside of this instability is that these individuals might be exciting to be with in terms of sensation seeking and being impulsive. The relationship is like a roller coaster where the highs are very high and the lows are very low — this is why people probably stay in these types of relationships, because of the uncertainty and drama. The HCM therefore provided a framework for testing what we already know about mate preferences from evolutionary psychology but this time from a man’s point of view.”

Blanchard conducted two studies, which involved asking 525 adults to evaluate hypothetical people’s dating appeal. They view facial photos of target individuals and their brief biography. The profiles used in the studies had different levels of facial attractiveness, wealth, as well as psychopathic and borderline personality traits.

For instance, an individual with high psychopathic and borderline personality traits was described to be quite intense, like to defy the rules, or to be a little wild – taking drugs and driving fast. These individuals were also described to be anxious, self-critical, and have many relationship dramas.

The studies found that wealth status and personality traits were the key factors when female participants predicted dating appeal. They were more attracted to partners with low psychopathic traits and good wealth, even despite low facial attractiveness.

On the other hand, it turned out that physical attractiveness was the dominant factor for men in predicting dating appeal. They find physically attractive women with high borderline personality traits more appealing than those with low borderline personality traits and less attractiveness.

Blanchard pointed out that while adaptive aspects of personality traits are often viewed negatively, it continues to maintain in the population, which suggests that it’s appealing to some people. Otherwise, those traits would be extinct.

Another interesting thing is that sometimes, being intense, impulsive, and emotionally unstable might result in a better relationship.
