Dating bad boys is thrilling. Even if you end up in tears with a gallon of ice cream in front of you, we still tend to choose the “bad ones.” In Profiling Your Date: A Smart Woman’s Guide to Evaluating a Man, author Caroline Presno says, “Bad boys are like potato chips—after you have one, you want to nibble on more and more until you eat the whole bag and feel sick.” Although dating these certain breed of men is sometimes dangerous and stressful, it is fun. And sometimes ladies, we all need some fun. Here are some bad boy celebrities we’d love to date:
