    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...

    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...

    I'll Protect You

    In the Summer before my Sophomore year of high school, I was dating this one girl. I had really started talking to her during the Spring semester of Freshman year, and I immediately had a crush on her. During the Summer, I was able to spend time with her. Eventually, we started...

    The Worst April Fool's Joke

    I got a call from my girlfriend (at the time) one April Fool's Day. She said that she needed to tell me something, and asked me to come over right away. I had a feeling what she had to tell me. Even though I knew what day it was, I still knew that she wouldn't ever joke about...

    Honestly Its The One Thing I Dislike Most About Myself

    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...

    My Reason For Being An Uncommonly Gentle Man.

    The reason I am the way I am is because of my parents. I've always been very close to my mom and growing up I would always have to witness my dad being a complete @$$hole most of the time and it would hurt my moms feelings and even make her cry sometimes. So I promised myself...

    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 See

    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...

    why I'm so nice to people who have been mean to me. Honestly I'm nice to people because in cases they're hurting inside and want others to feel their pain. When I get a rude slur thrown at me or my friends I say sorry and walk away. I've lived by that since I was 8, I see...
