As opposed to this woman

5 Confessions of a Female 'Nice Guy'

I don't know if you have heard the term "Nice Guy." Ironically, it does not actually refer to any nice guy. It refers to a sort of Internet phenomenon of a guy who complains about how girls won't date him and prefer jerks, and therefore all women are bad and shallow and are too dumb to know who's good for them. Such guys existed before the internet, but their inescapable public complaining is the part made possible by the miracle of technology.

A lot has been said about the Nice Guy and what is wrong with him, so I don't feel the need to repeat it. What I do want to talk about is his mirror image, the Nice Girl -- the female who goes a little nuts after failing to get guys. I know a lot about this type, because I was this type for a long, long time. It's pretty sad, but I always say: if you can't mock the embarrassing parts of your past, what's the point of having lived them?

Now, Nice Guys and Nice Girls aren't exact parallels, as men and women have different roles and expectations in society or whatever, but there are some similarities. Let's play high school English class and compare and contrast.

This is my favorite part:

"I'll stop being pissed at the opposite sex when one of them agrees to go out with me," is basically you holding your own happiness hostage. You're probably hurting yourself more than anybody else

Haters are gonna hate. It's what they do. "You are all idiots, but why don't you like me!"

Montgomery Co. Local Election Endorsements?

Does anyone have strong opinions on any of the local races like Board of Ed, Judges, ballot questions, etc.?

I'll take endorsements from my fellow DUers. And yes, my vote can be bought!

I'll mostly vote Dem on the partisan elections of course, but I don't know much about the local stuff, I don't have kids, etc.. I'll probably hold my nose for some of these Dems like Ike Leggett, as I walk past the badly bungled transit center twice every day.

About IronLionZion

If an H-1b has an American accent, they are probably not an H-1b. It's race, not citizenship. Americans are more diverse than you think. Millions of US citizens don't look the way you might expect. This fact is very important and will help us win elections.
