Host: Are there early warning signs that will help a woman identify a man as a bad boy?
Toni Coleman: Yes, I think one of the first things that I talked to women about when they are trying to figure out at this, what this guy is really all about that they have met is how consistent is he in his behavior. If he told you that he was going to call, then he called. If you said a certain time to meet somewhere for him to pick you up, did he come at that time and if not, if was running late, did he give you a reason? Was he forthcoming about it and consistent and that kind of thing and open with his feelings? If a guy is too closed, if he doesn't - if he is inconsistent, if he is unreliable, if he is telling you one thing but doing another, if it is always a series of excuses about why he can't do something, about why he didn't do something or about being misunderstood by people, perhaps he is talking about I don't know what it is about other people, my boss, my co-workers, my friends, everybody gives me hard time kind of thing. These are all warning signs. If he is not getting along with people, if he is not reliable, if he is not consistent, if he is not available the way you would expect him to be without a real explanation, all potential bad boy signs.
