For the non-rapey version, please see "ILoveYouBecauseICantControlYou". "You got spunk" is more "''I '''will''' love you because it is hard to control you''", and unsurprisingly, has the [[UnfortunateImplications less pleasant implications]]. Compare WillNotBeAVictim (for the ActionGirl's perspective) and IHaveYouNowMyPretty (for the villain's perspective). Compare AmazonChaser for when "spunk" is an attractive quality in a girlfriend. Also compare DefiantCaptive. Contrast NoGuyWantsAnAmazon and NoGuyWantsToBeChased for when it is a deterrent. When meant sincerely and in non-rapey terms, it overlaps with SympathyForTheHero.
