I doubt the "bad guy" is dying but I think the pushover types are more prominent because parenting is more lax these days.

No, there are still plenty of young edgy teens who act or are attracted to 'the bad guy' type. I assume you're just getting older, you dont see as many of them as your age group is maturing and realizing that being edgy and toxic isnt going to get them anywhere in life.

I think more people are realising that dating a 'bad guy' just leaves them more heartbroken than if they dated someone who was nice.

Trying to change the persona of a 'bad guy' to a 'good guy' rarely works.

It's like when you eat sugar. You start off normal, then get the sudden energy rush of excitement, before crashing hard, and eventually over time, back to normal. - see graph as an example.

Dating a 'bad guy' starts, then gets exciting quite rapidly because you're into them, thinking you can change them, bragging to your mates that you're dating a bad ass, you sleep with him a few times, he cheats and you can't believe it, so the crash happens, and you struggle to pick yourself up afterwards.
