Heartbreak in the making: Falling for a guy you want to "tame."
Skip these parts:
Being affected every time he shows his “bad boy” ways.
Being influenced by his bad habits, such as vices
Feeling like a failure because you cannot change him
The Lesson: Do not attempt to change a "bad boy."
If you're going through this right now: It is useless. "Good girl changes bad boy" is the exception, not the rule. Unless you want to cry your eyes our and feel let down often, then it's high time you realize that a guy will only change permanently if he wants to, not because someone makes him. While you are not disregarding the fact that there's still hope for him to become a better man, do not make it your personal project to make him one.
