Smart women should not date bad boys or own only sports cars.
Sure, a sports car -- like a bad boy -- is flashy and fun. But you don't necessarily want to marry it.
For example, I drove the 2012 Mini JCW Cooper Coupe the other day in our press fleet. It's definitely sexy, fun and fast. Its sleek lines and signature painted stripes made it eye-popping. It's a good date, but maybe not my destiny.
First, it's a two-seater, so no room for a family. It also didn't feel grounded when I hit a bump on the road. Those are red flags for a long-term relationship.
