Get over yourself.
Get over yourself.
The bigger problem (for single women) is that all the most desirable nice guys tend to stay in their relationships, which means that as time goes on, the number of nice guys decreases. By the time the bitchy women are ready to settle down for a nice guy, they're left with the dregs.
This is science.
I'm a nice person, but then again I'm nice to everyone. You may just make someone's day better by being polite to them and treating them like a human being. It's happened to me. =) Not every relationship will stay exactly the same, so to say that the "nice guy" is a ploy is a little insulting. The participants may develop feelings for one another, idunno. I have female friends that ask me all the time "where have the good men gone?" and I think "where have all the good men gone *that I want to date?* Also, if the male is a close friend and is honestly out to be a good friend, he probably doesn't want to ruin the friendship. I've had friends fall into that trap.
Cynicism that's well-founded in reality like this one is should be called "realism." I really think some immature women (and there are loads of them out there) desperately need some father figure in their lives to tell them in no uncertain terms to grow up. It's kind of a shame that you have to enter the scene with a certain measure of calloused indifference lest the chicas rip you a new one - even when crass "tail" (like this Craigslist poster obviously wanted) isn't what you're looking for.
"Nice guy" is just another name for "manipulative douchebag". How about treating human beings like individuals and not like vending machines? - ex. I put emotional connection in, sexual favours come out! Either that or stop acting like a puppy dog around women.
Interesting note... Women who are upset by this is usually the ones complaining about their lack of 'good' men. THE universe may not owe guys a girlfriend, but sure as hell the nice guys do not owe any b1tches emotional and physical comforts!
i agree partially with the author and with squeegy76. Nobody should have to feel like the author, but then again, he did it to himself.
Manipulative behavior is manipulative behavior, whether it wears the "nice guy" banner or the "confident jerk" banner. The universe doesn't owe you a girlfriend, and women don't owe you sex. So quit whining and get a personality.
Nice guys. Sadly, we human are idiots.
That was, surprisingly deep for craigslist...
Yeah I really like best of craigslist.
