    I am a nice guy. I help other and enjoy seeing other people succeed in life. During my college years I was the guy the would help a girl move with a few hours notice, change the oil in her car, or help her out in many different ways. To be direct, I was used and chumped many...

    Most Of The Time Anyways.

    I like to think I'm a nice guy for the most part. I have my moments when I'm not so nice, but overall I'm a nice guy. I don't want anyone thinking I'm a push over or weak, because I'm not. I will standup for myself, my family and friends should the need arise, but in the...

    Why, Yes!

    Although I know nice guys are often stereotyped as guys who only do nice things in exchange for something, I'm proud to say that I'm a nice guy for the sake for being nice. Okay, if you didn't understand what I meant, I'll simplify it for ya, kay? I perform acts of kindness for...

    Couple days ago, some guy ripped me off

    for $200. I saw him yesterday and he was wanting to try another scam, but mentioned that it was his birthday (it really was, I saw his ID) and he needed the money to be able to party. I don't know the guy at all, but I know people have a hard life here -- I remember working for...

    Yup, that I am too nice. I have gotten alot better over the years so I am not taken advantage of as much anymore. It was still frusterating tho because being my age, most women arent looking for a nice guy, they are out chasing after the bad boys and what not. But hey, thats...

    We Finish Last

    Everyone either wants to be or is so proud of being "bad ***". It is'nt my nature. The bad ***** are eventually going to kill each other off, trying to prove who's "badder". Then, the meek will inherit the earth.

    The Worst April Fool's Joke

    and with respect and therefore I always end up last. I have a lot of friends (boys and girls) and I have been told several times that I am a nice person. I also noticed that girls go after jerks and as*holes who would leave them with broken hearts and wet cheeks. Not just that...

    What They Think A Nice Guy Is And What We Should Be.

    I've been asked why I reject the term "Nice Guy." It's simple really: it's not a compliment. It's not something to aspire too. On the surface it sounds alright. Being the definition of nice is "pleasing," "agreeable," or even "well done." There is a connotation to the phrase that...

    Nice Guys... Not For Young Women?

    I have heard it said that older women prefer nice guys. I think this is largely true. I believe that as women get older, they value security more than excitement. Sure excitement is valued but facing the reality of spending the rest of your life alone would cause any man or woman...

    What I am seeing in this group are the best that men have to offer. I'm also seeing a group of men weighed down by a phrase. "Nice guy" has too much baggage with it. It screams "door mat" or "milquetoast." We are more than that. I see here men who are capable of dealing with...
