    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...

    A Teddy Bear

    My fiancé (at the time) was telling me about a teddy bear she had when she was a little girl. It meant the world to her. At some point, she lost him. The wheels already turning in my head, I asked her to describe him to me. She did so, unaware that I was taking mental notes of...

    The Best Gift

    During my Junior Year of high school, I switched to an online high school. I made a few friends through it, but one really stood out. We started talking a lot and we eventually confessed our feelings for one another. We hadn't gotten to meet in person, but I had talked to her...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Lost In Las Vegas

    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...

    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...

    I Try

    I have always been just a nice guy. I never got why people are jerks to eachother. It just seems so stupid. People end up hating you when you are mean. I was always the kid to share my crayons hahaha. To girls I am always the nice one, even when they are not. :) I only...

    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...

    Being Yourself

    I'm beginning to wonder if being nice aka being yourself is going to get me anywhere. I don't believe in faking who I am just so I can get with the girl. In general, I'm a nice guy with values and morals. I hate to see people I like having relationship problems and still staying...

    I'm A Nice Guy

    I've been told by my friends that I'm a nice guy, and I guess they're right. I mean, I'm not mean to the people I care about, I don't put myself ahead of others, and I don't think I'm better than anyone just because I'm me. But it's true what they say: nice guys finish last, all...
