The "jerks" were also divided into two categories, "as either confident, attractive, sexy, and exciting or as manipulative, unfaithful, disrespectful of women, and interested only in sex." These studies also cite other research on heterosexual attraction that does not mention the "nice guy" term.They interpret various studies on female attraction to various traits in men (e.g.In other words, women say that they want nice guys, but really go for men who are "jerks" or "bad boys" in the end.Stephan Desrochers claims, in a 1995 article in the journal Sex Roles, that many "sensitive" men, based on personal experience, do not believe women actually want "nice guys".
