8 Reasons Men Fall In Love With Good Girls

Because I Said So

While men always and will always like bad girls, the good girl is the one they fall in love with and commit to possibly for the rest of their life. Aside from the fact that good girls are a rarity, what makes them so irresistible and lovely that men feel compelled to surrender their freedom to them?

1. She’s loyal


Being faithful is very important to men and it goes beyond the sexual part: a good girl will stay by her man’s side no matter what. Life is a very dangerous adventure with ups and downs and a man can’t always be at his 100%. He can get sick or get involved in big troubles; during those times he won’t be as bold, dominant, sexy, reliable and powerful as usual.

Smelling the frailty and the open wounds, the vultures he usually protects her from will try to steer her away from him, be it with seduction, money or alluring promises of a better life. In this age of short term everything, temptations are strong, but the good girl always valiantly resists them.

2. She’s honest

She’s an open book: she cries and instantly shows her emotions when she’s hurt, letting you know what you did wrong so you can apologize and fix it right away instead of letting it drag for months. Also, she does not manipulate to get what she wants. Instead, the good girl rarely asks for anything, because you often feel naturally inclined to help her anyways.

3. She’s sweet


Sensitive, her eyes will light up, her face will soften and her mouth will slightly open when you hold your piercing gaze on her a little too long. Telling her she’s pretty will make her smile and make her genuinely happy instead of flattering her ego.

Innocent, she is unaware of the ugliest and darkest aspects of life because she did not partake in any of it. Her lightness makes you forget about the harsh cruelty of the world and brings out the joy and playfulness that still reside somewhere inside you.

Vulnerable, she unknowingly brings out your protective instinct, something that never happens when you’re around other girls. When someone hurts her, it’s like watching an ivory tower on a flower field filled with unicorns being obliterated by a horde of garbage trucks pouring rotting trash and plastic goo all over the place. That makes a man truly enraged and fills him with unique emotions of violence and righteousness.

4. She’s forgiving to the point it haunts you

Men can sometimes be cruel in moments of anger, saying extremely hurtful words or doing unforgettable actions. But the good girl is able to forgive you the worst things you can possibly have done to her. She doesn’t hold grudges: when you did her wrong, she actually prays for you to have a better life and hopefully come to your senses.

Her greatest weapon is her ability to be so kind and compassionate to the point it makes you angry at yourself for falling short. This makes a man puzzled and forces him to face what he did and solve the problem instead of having endless arguments that lead to nowhere.

5. She’s supportive



She is the kind of girl who puts other’s people needs before hers. She will support you in your endeavors by encouraging you to work harder and constantly telling you that you’re strong and that you’re the best. If you’re sick, her nurturing instinct will instantly kick in and she will concoct special potions for you to make sure you have everything you need to get back on your feet.

6. She listens

Compassionate and empathic, she listens to others, gives good advice and is wise beyond her years. She brings you a perspective that you would not have, one that comes from a different world than yours. She doesn’t criticize, back talk or interrupt you when you speak; conversation with her is easy and it makes you feel cozy and relaxed after your long, confrontational day of hard work.

7. She pushes you to be a better man

When she knows you have a very important goal, she helps you attain it and she wants you to improve yourself instead of holding you down for fear of losing you. When you fail terribly, instead of letting you marinate in your misery, she appeals to your pride by telling you gently and calmly that you have to man up and face your situation. But most importantly, she greatly motivates you to be a good man by being a good woman herself.

8. She’s hard to find

Finally, the good girl has been mistreated and misunderstood in the past five decades. Constantly under pressure to conform to other girls, taken advantage of by seductive men, bored to tears by slimy “nice” guys, her existence and future are in question. So to those good girls who are being ignored and forgotten in this world of meaningless flings, confrontational social interactions and interchangeable relationships, we know you exist, we value you and we love you.
