Came across this image and it got me thinking: are tsundere personalities really attractive in real life?

Here's a quick chart of the Dere types if you're not familiar with the terminology!

This video gives a nice overview of the issue!

Now, I think every personality can be attractive to someone....but I have a hard time believing that people who love tsundere characters the best in anime would also love them the best in real life if they acted they way they act in anime.
Like, tsunderes are known for being totally harsh to you but having a very soft & caring side that sometimes peaks out as well. While I think these people exist in real life, I think it's probably a lot hard to NOTICE the softer side on someone who just seems mean in real life as opposed to in anime, you know?? You might never realize it exists. Also, I don't think any acts as EXTREME as they do in anime!
My thought is that LOVE is a confusing feeling for everyone, but especially for adolescents and young adults. People sometimes are confused, repress their feelings, and a bit of tsundere-ish behavior might appear. But I don't think you'll ever find someone as hard core tsundere as what we see in anime! After all, it's an archetype of fiction, and I think it's roots in real life aren't nearly as intense xD
For example, when you receive a gift, you might be confused about it so you'd say "oh I really didn't need this" and act a bit distant, when really you're quite happy about it. Something like that could be tsundere, yes? What do you think?

Could you fall in love with a real life tsundere?

I don't know if tsunderes are real, the only example is when I was a kid, people would always tell me, "oh when she's mean to you, that means she likes you, she just doesn't know how to show it." and I would sit there horrified that a girl giving me titty twister means affection.
ive actually had an encounter with a tsundere back in 8th grade. so back when I was in PE I sat next to this one girl and she was sooooo mean to me. she would cuss at me like everyday and kind of make my life a bit miserable. but regardless I always stayed nice to her. in the end of the year she ended up confessing she liked me which came up as a big shock. I ended up turning her down because I couldn't get past the whole abusive language. this may be a long shot for being called a "tsundere" but if so. I wouldn't think they would be successful
a true Tsundere would eventually evolve from tsun to dere(Shana from Shakugan no Shana)+// I have dated a couple of tsundere and 1 himedere.I ended up marrying a yandere, she hasn't lost too much yan though.
Tsundere is just bdsm outside the bedroom (jk jk πŸ˜‚), which I do think is a very difficult type to love in real life. But that doesn't mean it's impossible to make it work. The biggest tsundere I know is my mum, 22 years later, my dad is still head over heels for her, even though she scares the living heck out of me πŸ˜…
@BlackDragon88 I wouldn't like one either, they're emotionally exhausting to handle.
