Ode to the Nice GirlsPage 3 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
I didnt really like this tribute :\

I think I'm pretty nice, but this tribute made nice girls sound like doormats. That implies that they are too weak to stand up and state what they want, unlike the 'sirens' who were so attractively described.

Well screw that. Nice girls are the STRONGEST of the women. There is a difference between being nice and being a pushover.

You know, I'd have to say this is one of the cutest things ever. We have our own Ode. That's awesome.

I, as well as someone else who posted here, have the issue with guys saying I'm too good for them. Or they're 'not ready' for me yet.

Which is ridiculous, considering these men should grow up a little. They're usually in their 20's. I even had a guy tell me once that if he was looking to get married right now, I'd be the one he'd do so with. But right now he wasn't.

...So he went and dated someone else. -_-

My conclusion is I think boys are scared of nice girls.

Nope i dont think every girl is going to jump on this bandwaggon...

Funny how lots of guys seem to have been jaded by girls who have either cheated, wanted to cheat, lied or whatever it may have been, then unfortunately when they meet someone new and all is going along nicely for a while, and he has infact met someone truly nice, but perhaps she is wanting to take things slow, or is scared of jumping into the relationship or whatever the reason, some guys just grab on to the "I have no time for liars or cheaters etc"

It happened to me :( I met someone I liked, he had been cheated on in a previous relationship etc, when we met I felt we kind of were going too fast, I wanted to "slow down a bit" he didn't like it, he thought I was rejecting him and jumped off the deepend about it, he said he would call etc, he didn't so I went back on POF, because I was hurt because I thought that he was not interested after our bit of a argument about "us" when we met....yada yada yada...and now we don't talk...he sent me abusive texts telling me I was weak....I wasn't weak, we just misunderstood each other a way I figure he just used it all as an excuse because perhaps he wasn't really ready to be with someone, I don't know, but all I know is, this nice girl is terribly hurt, and have been made to feel like I was using him or playing games etc when I wasn't at all....but I think it was him who was....:(

gawd did that make any sense??

What th!
What blind, stupid , melodramatic, drama queen, wrote this stuff in the first place.

The nice girls DO get the guys. Listen to the skanks, round the far table, in any bar, moansing about it. They spend half thier time moaning, and the other half abusing and rejecting any guy who asks them if they would like to dance.

The nice girls arent welcome around this table so they head up to the bar, with the boys.
The boys, briefly, lust after the the trash girls, from the safety of the bar, but they date the nice one. Mostly becasue she is safe. Grab a handful of her tits and she will say either "yes" or "no" but she will never scream rape, in the way that the drama queens do.
They date her because she is there. She talks to al of them so they know the score. The usual petty miunderstandings and jealosies don't occurr becasue ALL of da boize already know if she's dating one guy or one hundred guys.

They skip the skank clothing becasue it's too expensive and too uncomfortable. You can grope and smooch a nice girl without wrecking her make up because she wears minimal make up and clothes that dont fall off every time you hug her.

When nice girls listen to da boize, discusssing the hotness of the skanks theyalso hear the same guys talking about any disasterous dates that the guys have had when they have tried to date the skanks. They KNOW that the guys hate the skanks massive atttitude problems.

The skanks do "allow" their guys to hang with these nice girls because they think that the nice girls are safe. Fact is that the skanks don't realise that its the nice girl, that it the real girlfriend. The guys regard the skank as the piece of ass on the side, the casual one night stand between the nice girls.

Nice girls don't bake cookies because they have the brains to know that comfort food only works for girls.

Guys do not turn down chances to date nice girls. If a nice girl hasn't got a specific date it's becasue she chooses go hang out with ALL the boys instead of just dating the one.
The only problem, that guys ever have with nice girls, is that quite a few of them, ffrom Mellisial Ethridge, to Missy Higgins, turn out to be gay.

No pamper pooch.

"And this is a quote from a typical 'nice' girl, calling women skanks when she doesn't even know anything about them. Is this a genuinely nice attitude, I ask you?"

This pamper is ME calling skanks, skanks, Not calling women skanks. Calling skanks, skanks. Us guys have all been abused by these skanks. That's why we don't go past loking done their tops. If we want a date we ask the nice girls. Their tops aren't cut low enough to get a good look at thier tits but you have a much better chamce of getting the full picture, alter on, when they/you take off their tops.

Or we have become more and more suspicious of people, these days it seems like we wonder "whta the hell" if someone is trying to show us interest or affection, so yeah, it is like we are starting to feel scared to be nice, it's a weird feeling, feeling vulnerable, but it's a wonderful feeling if you are with someon you do actually love and trust.

Look, I am sure tons of people think they are nice. I've dated girls who were nice who drove me crazy. Nice is not enough in my book. If I were a girl, a guy being nice isn't enough. As a guy, a girl just being nice won't cut it with me. She should be interesing somehow, warm, kind, passionate, intelligent, consistent, and rather stable and at least plain looking. If she fits all that, then I would sure date her, but finding all that is a tough call...Some of these nice girls and nice guys act like the people who go to church and believe God should bless them for following rituals. It doesn't work that way. This entitlement mentality and why is this happening to me attitude is pointless... I've been there, done that... Yeah, I am a very nice guy, but I don't think it entitles me to something. How I present myself, believe in myself, what I do with myself would entitle and nothing else...

Why don't the nice guys go for the nice girls, and vice versa? But no! Everyone feels entitled to a hottie, and therin lies the conundrum. The thread implies that hotness equals skank, and nice equals homely. Not always so. And Mr. Dynomite-just stay on the ground with the easy smelly wormy apples, waiting for the beauties to fall on your head, cuz after all, the angry sarcastic ones deserve the very best. What? It's too long to wait for one to fall? And what about the ones in the middle of the tree? The ones you actually have to make an effort to reach up & get. No mention of them atall.
I thought guys liked the challenge of climbing.

Not quite Cider
er Cherrry.

are like apples
the best looking ones
are at the very top of the tree
Men dont want to climb because of the risk
of being hurt. The rotten ones are on the ground under the
tree. Available but rotten to the core. But in the middle branches
is the real fruit. Doesn't look as good as the top branches but
the taste is still sweet. And still available.
It doesn't
matter how
good the top
branch fruit
is if its out
of reach.
It simply
isn't worth
the risk.

It goes the same way for men. Why do the women we want,want guys that are loosers? Well I'll tell you what I think, women who want loosers are loosers them self's. They get with men who arn't good looking or don't have a job and or both and give them babys/with no support. They always go back to them. Weird?
I'll tell you what,Women are the most wonderful creation God ever made. Man can'not surive with out them. Its time for women to start picking the good men and stay away from the (bad boys ). GET A COUNTRY BOY. We were tought resecpt.

This is a tribute to the nice girls. These are the girls who are safe. The girls whom guys who have girlfriends are allowed to hang out with because they’re not viewed as a threat. These are the girls who dress respectably . . . they don’t go and get “skank clothes” and parade themselves around, catching the attention of every drooling, testosterone-filled boy on earth. These are the girls who are okay with going to chick-fil-a on a date, hanging out, watching a movie, playing a game, or doing some other low-cost, high-fun form of entertainment. Because after all, it’s really about the quality time that they spend with the guy and not the amount of money that is flowing from his pockets in order to please her every whim and desire (or so he thinks) during the date.

This is in honor of the girls who take the time to ask their guy friends “how’s life?” and to listen carefully when the answer is given. The girls who go out of their way to make cookies or cheer up male friends in distress. Yeah, we know “men are from Mars” and “women are from Venus,” but a simple “thank you” is pretty darn universal.

This goes out to the girls who must sit complacently while their guy friends discuss the “hotness” of the girl at the next table over. They watch as these guys date or lust over each and every self-centered, trashy, insecure, flirtatious, and flighty girl they come into contact with.

When asked, most guys say they would like to date a nice girl. However, when faced with such an opportunity, they claim that “I love her . . .like a little sister” or “there are no such things as nice girls. They’re all evil.” These guys continue to complain about how all girls are “manipulative” and “gossipy” and wonder why in the world they all go to the bathroom at the same time.

But, we must confess, there are guys out there who realize the value of their nice friends who are girls. These are the guys who should be praised for their willingness to go with the flow, hang out, and chill. These guys, however, fail to consider these nice girls as anything more than friends or to step up to the plate and consider them for a Saturday night date or the upcoming dance even though they possess all the qualities that guys claim they are looking for. But, a note to the nice girls. Eventually all guys will (or at least should) realize that they don’t want to have a relationship with a girl who wants all of their money and who will only date them until a guy who is better or more enhancing for her social status comes along. So, until those guys realize what is right in front of them, a word of encouragement to the nice girls. You know who you are, and I know you’re sick of being treated like a doormat. In all honesty, you are valuable. Clearly, you possess qualities that cause your guy friends to want to hang out with you. The world needs your encouragement, your willingness to take part in spontaneous activities, your ability to continue to enjoy life even though you watch as countless nasty, malicious female sirens blind the nice guys with their alluring ways. For all of the random, frustrating, and seemingly non-sensical things you tolerate, don’t lose hope. Nice guys do exist and will someday realize that nice girls, who are not evil, exist as well.

Fear not, your day will come. And perhaps your prince will too.

Hmm, there's a familiar ring to all this. So that's what the "nice" guys are chasing after.
The constant moaning and complaining in the other threads raised my curiosity. Little wonder, now I know! Guys and girls are as bad as each other.

Down with nice girls. If we don't have at least 1 argument a day + a near constant negative energy wave of oppressive impending doom I want nothing to do with them. Too damn 'nice' and easygoing. Get out of here with that. No man wants that. How will you stand up to my impulsive demands? That's what I thought.

I'm naught but nice...there's even a porn shop named after me. If you have men friends, it's not because you're nice, it just means men don't want to sleep with you. I never had to hold my guys friends hands whilst they're lusting over some skank. Most of the time I am that "skank". I don't have to dress slutty, I don't have to be ****y, I don't have to put others down, I'm just me and men notice me because I am NICE...So instead of sitting there in the corner being a wall flower and proclaiming to be "nice". Get on the dance floor, have fun and be the person everyone wants to be with. It's not that hard.
Bugger, I have no idea what this thread is about...lost me at Skank.

It's hard not to appreciate nice people but in reality most men have been around nice girls only to see that girl fall for someone else. Someone that hasn't taken time to endure this nice relationship thing. I'm not saying nice girls don't exist or that it's any less important that they try to have such fine qualities, but to try to convince a guy that you are just born that way is a little delusional and gives me stage fright.

this is an interesting thread, as I have often been accused of being too "nice" to people, boyfriends, etc. It is easy to get tired of doing it, but I feel it's more me than being someone I'm not, or would have a hard time holding up the illusion of. And besides, the person has to like me for me so no point putting on a mask! Nice people rule!

Ha! I've been accused of being too "mean". I was once a "nice" girl---a doormat. Never again. I now walk a fine line between being assertive and being a byotch. Having been on both sides of the "niceness fence" I have to say in all honesty that being on the meaner side is far better. Fewer people take advantage of me. I no longer take crap from people---if they dish it out, I give it right back to them.

Oh, they'll sometimes put up a facade of bravado (Bring it on, byotch!), but later on whine about how mean I am, and that I hit them below the belt and don't fight fairly---all the while never acknowledging their part in instigating and perpetuating the drama. When it finally dawns on them that I'm not going to back down, they'll eventually retreat.

What's to be gained by being a byotch? I'd say there's a certain level of satisfaction and self-respect one can acquire from standing up for one's convictions---and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

hank god for every girl that reads kahlil gibran, and not vogue.
thank god for every girl that knows the difference between quite, and quiet.
thank god for every girl that doesn't mix up Tori Amos, with Tori Spelling.
thank god for every girl that dreams, and doesn't get thier dreams from tv.
thank god for every girl that understand pointlism and depth of field.
thank god for every girl that listens to anni difranco, and led zepplin, cause its good music.
thank god for every girl that can unclog a J-pipe, with the need for a plumber.
thank god for every girl that believes she can do anything herself.
thank god for every girl that, tries to be something more.

Basically thank god for any girl which for whatever reason has the same taste as you in books and music. Nothing to do with a nice girl . And pointillism? what's that got to do with anything?

Actually, as a nice girl, I haven't really felt that my "niceness" has gone unappreciated by men. The guys I spend time around seem to prefer nice girls to mean girls. Well, most of them. Some of them can't figure out that the mean girls are only nice to them, and mean to everyone else. And if I'm baking cookies for a man, I'm not going to be unnoticed, hahaha.

I've been one to fall for the cheaters, the users, and the wolves in sheep's clothes. I've found that it's not only us nice guys that fall for the outspoken losers, but often that all you nice gals out there fall for our male equivalents. There are many out there who will be all to ready to use you and hurt you, but don't stop loving life and don't stop being awesome to the people life brings to your doorstep. If you end up being "too nice," well, what's truly wrong with that? Keep being too nice! Be so nice that the whole world is better for it. If you can't spend each day making someone's life a little better, spend each day making the world a better place.
