I read several dozen stories a year from miserable, lonely guys who insist that women won’t come near them despite the fact that they are just the nicest guys in the world.
..I’m asking what do you offer? Are you smart? Funny? Interesting? Talented? Ambitious? Creative? OK, now what do you do to demonstrate those attributes to the world? Don’t say that you’re a nice guy — that’s the bare minimum.
“Well, I’m not sexist or racist or greedy or shallow or abusive! Not like those other douchebags!”
I’m sorry, I know that this is hard to hear, but if all you can do is list a bunch of faults you don’t have, then back the fuck away..
..Don’t complain about how girls fall for jerks; they fall for those jerks because those jerks have other things they can offer. “But I’m a great listener!” Are you? Because you’re willing to sit quietly in exchange for the chance to be in the proximity of a pretty girl (and spend every second imagining how soft her skin must be)? Well guess what, there’s another guy in her life who also knows how to do that, and he can play the guitar. Saying that you’re a nice guy is like a restaurant whose only selling point is that the food doesn’t make you sick. You’re like a new movie whose title is This Movie Is in English, and its tagline is “The actors are clearly visible”."
I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS QUOTE FOR AGES. Perfectly said. If a student demands to get an A just because he did the bare minimum of work to pass, why would he ever think he deserved an A? Not that women are grades to be won—they’re human beings with independence and choice—but if the first thing a guy offers her is “I’m a nice guy” (read: “I pass the bare minimum for being a decent human being”), why should he expect her to give him the time of day?
Ironically, “nice guys” are rarely ever nice. They’re actually just pathetic whiners who are angry the girl they listed over chose someone else (who is, of course, automatically a “jerk” JUST because the girl chose him, right?).
But wait! It gets even funnier. Guys complain about girls picking the “d-bag” (read: “A guy who isn’t ME, wah”) over him, the “nice guy”…and yet I don’t see guys rushing around to give the average, plain, girl-next-door “nice girls” a chance. And I don’t see the girl-next-door types sitting around bitching and wailing about how they were ENTITLED to that one guy’s attention and why oh why did he pick the “bitch” over her? That’s because women understand that men are humans with a right to choose their partner and that if he chooses a different girl, that girl isn’t a “bitch” but a human being with something different to offer.
Hint: if you’re an actual nice guy, you’ll be confident enough to get rejected and move on without being a whiny baby who belittles women’s choices about it.
