With the nice guys, it’s always easier to take the relationship for granted. They are the ones that we hurt unintentionally and feel guilty about for the longest time.
There are different levels of “nice guys,” and being perpetually single I have encountered all of them. These are the guys who can’t figure out why women don’t like them, and don’t have the self-awareness to realize that women don’t dislike them for being nice, they dislike them because they actually aren’t nice at all.
They avoid conflict at any and all cost and send mixed messages in order to do so.
What do we truly want in a man?
No wonder I couldn’t stand Ted Mosby.
His messages turned into things like: ‘You’re being stuck up.’ ‘Such a bitch. Just meet me again and you’ll see.’ ‘Can’t believe you’re treating me like this. I’m so nice.
When she’s doubtful, he’s confident. When she’s scared, he’s brave. When she’s hurt, he’s the arms that hold her and the strength to keep her going. When she needs something to believe in she looks towards him and he looks at her and knows she can do anything.
“When they throw you or someone else under the bus to try and get laid.”
If someone feels the need to constantly voice that he is so laid back or so nice and friendly, he’s probably not.
The nice guy is the one girls will seek once they’ve made enough mistakes. We all want to be swept off our feet, but one-sided relationships always fail.
