    On Wearing Your Heart On Your Sleeve

    Wearing your heart on your sleeve means it's vulnerable to the cold, the wind, and the dirt..but if it's kept tucked away from everyone and everything, you miss out on what makes life worth it. The compassion for others is one thing I see too often neglected to be pinned to that...

    Shifting The Balance

    I just started reading a book called the art of seduction by Robert Greene. It's more a business book, geared toward influencing people and relationships than actual Seduction but there are aspects in there that seem like "Duh why didn't I think about that?" moments. Honestly...

    Trying To Break Out Of The Nice Guy Box

    Recently I've been trying really hard to stop being so nice. I have a large circle of female friends of love me to death and they all think I'm their best friend but they all spent their time chasing other guys. It makes me feel like a non-person sometimes. It's become so bad it...

    Being Nice Sucks!

    I'm a nice guy.  That means: I work late when I am supposed to even when I don't need to, and cover peoples shifts so they can (insert fun activity here),  I suck at haggling, I am naive, I trust people too much, I care too much about peoples feelings, I try not to...

    I'm Working On Being More Dominating

    I think that women get turned off by me because I'm too nice. I hate that about myself, and I'm working on being more dominating towards women. It seems like a lot of girls get turned off when they interact with me becuase I respect them and want to have a relationship with them...

    A LOT Of Delusions...

    Firstly, I'd like to ask all the guys posting stories on here to STOP with all the bullshit. There are women who like nice guys. Quit saying that NO woman does, because that's a lie. The majority of us do. Secondly, the women who end up with douchebags don't choose these guys...

    I'm ******* Sick of It

    I am sick of being the nice guy.  As soon as you are classified as a nice guy, it is like recieving a death sentence cause you don't stand a chance with women as far as relationships go anyway.  I hear so many women say they want a nice guy but if you look at all the...

    Nice Guy Might As Well Be A Curse Word

    My mom wanted to raise nice guys. Her goal was to raise southern gentlemen who were courteous and respectful to women. The good news is she was successful. The bad news in my case was she was successful and women aren't looking for nice guys. They aren't. Some of you might sit...

    Honestly I really do.

    I know I can't change who I am but being nice in this day and age SUCKS. You get used and then thrown away. I know, people say "just say no" but when your heart is like mines and you are genuinely a nice person, saying no isn't that simple. The worst part about it all in my eyes...

    I Wonder If That is Part Of The Problem

    I really hate being a nice sometimes, I think people seem to take advantage of that thinking I wouldn't object or get aggressive. I tried being a jerk a few times when it comes talking to the type of women who likes guys who can be jerks but they could tell I wasn't really like...

    NICE Guys Suck .....

    IN the eyes of women. Women like hot, sexy guys who are mostly macho and complete jerks. All through out middle school and highschool I would ask girls out and try to be polite and they would always turn me down. When I did reel in dates I would bring them small gifts and roses...
