Why They’re ‘The One’: Despite their rough around the edges exterior, these troubled dudes always turn out to be incredibly loyal, especially when they fall in love. They may not renounce their grifting ways (they’re just a bird you cannot tame) , but if you join them for a life on the lamb, the two of you will never run out of excitement and adventure.
Examples: Sawyer from Lost, George Clooney is Ocean’s 11, Steve Martin and Michael Caine in Dirty, Rotten Scoundrels
Why They’re Actually the Worst: As glamorized as they are in films, do you really want to date a guy who is going to steal all your money, and end up in jail (or worse, taking you down with him)? Unlike other professions, it might be hard to know if your new boyfriend is a con artist, but consider it a bad sign is if he asks you to play Three-Card Monte on the first date.
