I am not a nice guy then , just a speedbump, a parachute, a atm machine , the fountain of help and confort .

Yeah hotlatin I amd like the 2nd nice guy you mention except I do not confuse confidence with arrogance , just change a style for the appearance . Allos on the other point , I do not try or try hard or attempt to be desperate to be nice and say the right things to please , dude that is just me . Yes so many and too many people have said and reinforced about my way of being , was very nice to almost too nice . That is why I say it , not self proclaiming too. I guess i go to follow th advice to tone it down , not be too much of who I am , I think it is logical , that is what alot of women have told me here , not to be too nice because it is just being a doormat then say do not change , what if that is part of me ?

So I guess I have to permanently change who I am a little .

How about this; just be yourself and you will find what you are looking for in life? There is no perfect way to meet anyone and if you are constantly acting like a chameleon because you think it will make you more desireable you are going to end up alone wondering who the hell you are.

You people are something else.Look,Either your nice or bad...If i was going to get hooked up with a woman and she was overly nice.According to your screw up logic that is suppose to scare me...Not hardly..I would not know how to act.I would worship the ground she walks on.All the women i came accross had your logic....If a woman called me up everyday to see how i was doing.Then i would repect that.But that is far and few in between because of the friggin Logic of todays society.(What is in it for me attitude)Or you have to be some freek to fit in....Or play the logic game you people talk about...YOU PEOPLE MAKE ME SICK!...What in the hell is wrong with you.(YOU CAN BE OVERLY NICE FOR ME)What a world we live in.It is pitiful.

While there may be a grain of truth in the OP. It quickly looses it's poigniantcy.
You're confussing confidence with arrogance.

If the timetable you have on your profile is some kind of intinerary, It's boring at best.

And if i hear of any King positions opening, I'll give you a holla. You da man.

Ode to nice guys
Posted: 10/31/2005 2:18:18 PM
Desidude,

OMG , holy crap , that Ode to nice guy was and is me all the time , that stuff happens to me daily , I guess I will just kill myself now , hahahahaha, what the hell ?

I am sure then that alot of guys here can relate , those who have female friends and cannot get a date , not even if their lives depended on it like me. I am almost overwhelmed on how that "ode to nice guy " seems like me and all of those situations happen to me over and over and over with varying situations and degrees , yes I am the guy who takes women out because the parents would only let me date their daughters at all times without questions , they use me as a way out and to meet guys , even guys that I know . I sit while she dances with guys and women reject dancing offers.... I call these women good freinds ... best friends .

Wow now I feel pathetic , I guess when a guy is nice most women are like that , treat us guys like that , most women here may say they want a nice guy but do not really act or beleive it when the moment of truth comes. I kind of think the vast majority of women act this way towards those guys.

I guess I will always be this way and lonely . damn these women , hahahahaha

sigh ... I'm screwed.

mostly it is the women who have age and experience that actually persue, Finally, a nice guy
but usually they are way closer to their experation date than I am and have kids , and are divorced . So they probably now want a nice guy to help them with all their baggage even thought they say they donot have any or can take care of it themselves . Here on the forum the ones that say be yourself and claim to like nice guys for real are closer to being middle age usually , good that they say that and beleive that but that does not help most of us much , good pats on the shoulder , nice words , be yourself be the nice guy you genuinely are , were still screwed .

I have run into women who are really seriously looking for a relationship with me but I have to handle their teenage kids , her rent and her bills too , even if she does work , the excuse is the new family . I have tried to to be good for one of these women but I just end up much more overwhelbed by the new and greater responsibility than my younger single less experienced counterpart . Maybe the older the more dangerous for the nice guy

yeah nice guys finish last , I am just waithing for how I will crash and burn at the end .

taurus516: You think you could suck ass a little harder?

There is another way of looking at the 'I think nice guys are sisies' thing, and I am going to push it.

This is new to these forums and will piss off some.

C'est La Vie!

Being around a nice guy, might expose a particular weaknesses. And they don't want that to happen. So if they are totaly insecure they lash out at you and you're a wuss. Regardless.

If there's a little respect between the two, they'll somewhat blow you off to avoid their inadequacies.

And b4 ne1 biatches, This came from a women. f it, get that far and I'll continue.

I think there's a touch of truth in what he (Deangelo) says. Haven't read alot of his stuff, but have seen some, and pretty much get the idea.

To have a chance at getting the attention of someone, you have to do something different. Stand out a little. Can't just crawl up and beg for a phone number.

One of the things almost every woman says they want in a guy is a sense of humour, so his thing about cocky and funny has a touch of truth to it too.

I don't think all women like bad boys, but I'm pretty sure that nice guys do sleep alone most of the time.

Probably get better results if you went for hypnosis for confidence or something. Bottom line is that approaching you gals isn't easy for most guys, and if Deangelo or anyone else can help with a guys confidence, then it's no half bad. To hell with the actual words or lines he feeds. It's the underlying message. Be confident, and be more successful with most things in life. Women, business, whatever.

That's pretty much the way I see it.

deagleninja speaks the truth.

The OP seems to be suffering from bitterness and rejection. I am sorry there have been chicks who have taken advantage of you.

Please be assured not all women are like this. I could say, based on past relationships, that all men are cheating lying f*tards, but I know that, despite the pain I've had, they aren't ALL like that. I just have to find the right one.

OP, you are a nice guy, I can see it underneath all that machismo crap. And for all that, you are still pretty mild in that department. You are confusing control with confidence, as someone has already pointed out. You don't need to be in control of your woman, and not give her a chance to express herself, in order to be a confident man. You might as well say that being a man means slapping her around.

Women DO like nice guys. They don't like wimps, no, although there are a few women out there who desire a wimp so that they can control something. Most women out there want a man who is masculine, and yet able to show SOME emotion sometimes. My father was very much the kind of man you describe, and he was extremely emotionally absent to my mother, and to his children. My mother always wished he would show he gave a crap about his kids. He actually does, you know, but he can't express it very well, thanks to this idea that showing emotion even in the slightest degree isn't manly. I call BS on this line of thinking.

Women like men who are men, but who can also be somewhat sensitive, who isn't afraid to show that he loves her, and the occassional compliment is an absolute necessity... women tend to be unsure about themselves, so telling her that she's beautiful sometimes goes a LONG way in boosting her self confidence. Why would that be unmanly?

What Green Eyed Doll said is what women think. There is no such thing as a "nice guy" We are all dogs, some pretend to be nice to get what we want. So guys if women assume we are all dogs then there really is no point in being anything else. Pay attention to all the post on these forums, "the only thing men want is sex, All men are liars, men only think with there little head, etc, etc, etc". This is their paradigm, and if there is one thing I have learned over time is that people will believe what they want to believe and no amount of facts will change their minds.

Are there women out there that don't think like this? I'm sure there are, but what does the majority think? Just read the forums.

There is not such a thing as a "nice guy" I get so tired of this term.


Lol while this is a completely retarded statement, I will concur that I get tired of hearing people throw it around as well.

Hey Bro, Don't listen to all the people trying to say your just looking for sympathy or your so wrong etc etc..

Pretty much everything you have stated is 100% true..

Yeah you're always going to have people that disagree but who cares the fact is you're right..

Ive been with enough women and Ive experienced the same exact thing its sad but ive had to resort to not being so nice now.. I also have alot of male friends who have gone through the same thing, now you too? Ya it isnt a coincidence..

You dont have to be a jerk or anything, just be a man and do what you want to do when you want to do it, you need to lead your life...


... that has absolutely zilch to do with being a "nice guy," and everything to do with not being a f*cking doormat.

What are we talking about here? Just having sex with women or being in long term relationships?

I know a few people have said that just being yourself is the best way to have success with women. I tend to agree to some extent but only when being yourself allows you to come off as naturally confident and in control of your life. Let's face it, low self esteem is running rampant in today's society in both men and women so there is a serious lack of confidence going around. I recently went to a bar with a group of friends (a good mix of men and women all in their professional and dating primes) and I actually took the time to observe each person's approach to the opposite sex and it was pretty much dead on to what has been said over and over again in this thread, which is the guys that are relaxed, naturally confident, and come off as just being there to have a good time are the ones who ended up spending the evening with an attractive woman. These guys have an "I don't need you to have a good time" attitude so naturally a large amount of women are attracted to this just out of curiousity.
The guys that obviously had low self esteem and just stood in a corner (together I might add) or the ones who tried too hard to exude confidence but ended up coming off as arrogant a-holes all ended up alone or hanging with each other.

My friends that have low self esteem are the typical "nice" guy's who end up falling for the first woman who shows any interest. They end up whorshipping these women. They do everything they can to keep them from moving on, which I can see would be overwhelming for some women. I tend to lose touch with these guys for the duration of their relationships as they are to busy putting all of their free time into trying to make their women happy. They are also the ones that end up being heart broken and pining for a year when their relationships end.

On the other hand, the truly confident guys are having short term relationships with women with a few long term ones mixed in. Some actually have gotten married but all of them still find time to hang out with friends and have their own seperate interests apart from whomever they are dating. It's no surprise that their SO's also have their own personal lives and do what they want.

TG has it right on the money.
How is that martyr hat? Your thinking has got you thinking your so nice and all those people out there are using you.....That only happens whenever you allow it happen. You seek what you are.....So if everyone is crappy and not what you want....instead of looking at their thoughts, attitude and behavior......which is none of your business by the way......check yours out. You can change your thoughts by a switch of the mind. Try focusing on yourself instead and I will bet you mirror their behavior. You become whiny, bitter and walk around with a dejected attitude until the next one comes along and you can again focus on their shitty attitude and behavior. You didn't find them by accident. People like this are drawn together because they fit. So after all this time your wearing your bitter poor poor me mask.....the balanced people see it...so you ain't going to draw them in....they know better.
Keep your bitter attitude and you will be stuck in the very same place with much more baggage years later. Take control back over your life and start with yourself. Find your behaviors, change your attitudes, thoughts and feeling with the switch that is located in your mind.........
And not being nice.....treating others how I want to be treated regardless of their behavior is what makes me who I am today....which means I don't let someone else's behavior affect mine.....and setting boundaries with those that treat us poorly is standing up for yourself.....but I don't lower myself to their behavior .....

OP, and all who follow, who cares what women want!! Figure out who YOU are. Be confident in yourself. Know what you want. Have the balls to go and get what you want. The rest takes care of itself. The women who belong in your life who have a personality that is compatible with your own, will find you and be attracted to you.
