I here and now will stop being a victim to Nice Guy Syndrome, there is nothing wrong with being a human being and having feelings, emotions and having the needs that I want meet, meet.    How many times have we seen the Post about "I'm a Nice Guy", I am a hell of a great person to be around and to be with but I get walked all over and trampled into the ground and just out right used. Hi, My name is Michael and I am a Nice Guy. Now I am going to tell you for all that we are as Nice Guys is all a lie, it is camouflage. We are not so nice, we are liars, manipulators, dishonest about ourselves and how we think, feel and otherwise behave. 

    We Nice Guys live in a world of give and we expect something back, even when we say "No we don't, don't bother getting us anything."Really we do, whether it be presents, affection, meals, recognition, praise what have you! We want something, and heaven help us and yourself if a relationship is involved because it does get worse. You may be asking yourself how is it that I will know if I am a Nice Guy or recognize a Nice Guy! Well hear are some characteristics:


Nice Guys are givers.


Nice Guys fix and caretake.


Nice Guys seek approval from others.


Nice Guys avoid conflict.


Nice Guys believe they must hide their perceived flaws and mistakes.


Nice Guys seek the "right" way to do things.


These are some of the characteristics of Nice Guy Syndrome. If you would like to learn more there is a free download of a book called "No More Mr. Nice Guy!" either online or at your local library. Suggest you go check it out, for those of us who do suffer from Nice Guy Syndrome, it is real and like any other Syndrome there is ultimately a cure of sorts it will take work and effort but when it is done. You can stand proud that you love your self an
