12. i had never heard of this "nice guy" thing in decades, lol. du taught me.

 

at first i actually thought nice guys really thought they were not wanted. i use to defend the nice guy so. of course women want nice guys. only kind of guy i allow in my life. every woman i know (i only know so many, more an isolationist) married nice guys.

until i was educated who the "nice guys" were and their expectation.

i wish i could remember the poster, but a man said on one of these threads. he is a nice guy and use to feel that way, until he started putting himself out there instead of being in background and sure enough, married a nice woman. lol.

my son at 16 tried the "girls dont want the nice guy". i had just read the mans post. it really was excellent explaining it all to me. so i told son, no way. dont buy into it. explained the nice guy problem and why the generally nice guys dont get the girl. they dont put themselves out there.

he started putting himself out there. and now he will tell anyone, the nice guy gets all the girls.
