That is a good rant. I am a nice guy who DID get the girl. Lucky me. Any others?

/not submitter

Ok, I didn't read the article.

But I'd take a nice guy.

Dunno what I'd do with him though, but I'ms ure I could tire him out.

Nice guys will almost always finish last.
Nice guys will almost always be left to pick up the pieces.
Nice guys will almost always be left holding the (odious) bag.

Always have.

Always will.

/ex-nice guy.
 
2005-01-02 8:29:15 PM  
The disgruntled guy doesn't get any further, just so ya know.
 
2005-01-02 8:29:41 PM  
Hm, my quintessential "girl I didn't get" is on her way over to my house right now. This new couldn't come at a better time.
 
2005-01-02 8:30:47 PM  
a sucker for a pretty smile

you wouldn't believe how often I've said this about myself.

Now I'm depressed. Thanks submitter. Now I have to go cry myself to sleep again.

thought i was for a few years of marraige. then she decided i wasn't enough of an asshole and left me.
not disgruntled, just discouraged.

I'll never win.

Nopers, I'm a nice guy that is still looking around for a nice TFette. Know of any?
 
2005-01-02 8:36:29 PM  
I'm not disgruntled.

I'm pleasantly realistic.

An amused cynic.

Generally pretty happy with myself and the people in my life.

Maybe not an ex-nice guy. But I've become pretty resistant to allowing myself to be abused anymore.
 
2005-01-02 8:39:35 PM  
I'm a nice guy.
I got a pretty girl.

then she became a metric ton.
 
2005-01-02 8:40:16 PM  
I'm currently looking for a nice guy in his 30's - definition of a nice guy =

Loves and respects his parents (mother especially)
Treats his sisters, mother and female friends well.
Doesn't speak ill of his ex-es.
Holds down a steady job of some sort/has steady income of some sort. Also, a full time grad. student is okay. Just something to indicate stability and no penchant for bleeding my meager bank account dry.
Owns a vehicle and keeps it clean
Keeps his house clean.
Keeps himself clean.
Doesn't make fun of the disabled, people from different cultures, religions, etc. just because they are different (making fun of say, and Indian guy that falls and busts his ass is fine).
Being funny, relatively good looking and a snappy dresser is also a plus.

Can't for the life of me figure out why a guy like that would still be single. I'm also dumbfounded by how many of my friends are with complete losers. Have no idea why they stay with them.
 
2005-01-02 8:42:49 PM  
Definite nice guy here. Not a push over, but hell of a nice guy. I may have finished last but the girl of my dreams was standing there.

Now we've been together for almost 3 years and I couldnt be happier. Especially since she was the asshole dating type when I met her.

Don't lose hope fellow nice guys. My girl is a knockout, better than I ever thought I'd get. But its definently deserved.
 
2005-01-02 8:43:15 PM  
After many years of being single, and many years of being an "ex", I am no longer alone. The woman who exceeds my dreams and expectations is taking a nap right next to me right now. It took a long time, but TFette 8floz and I finally found each other.

Where there is life, there is hope. Never give up, never surrender.

fezziwig: Nice guys will almost always be left to pick up the pieces.

Shiat, I can't even *find* the pieces anymore.
 
2005-01-02 8:44:45 PM  
SpinStopper: Never give up, never surrender.

I applaud you.

So do I, if only for the Galaxy Quest ref.

That's pretty harsh.

Every time I see you post about your TF connection, SpinStopper, it makes me smile.
 
2005-01-02 8:50:27 PM  
To all the nice guys who don't get the girl; your time is nigh

Never have, Never will. Sorry ladies, no matter what you say, you end up with the asshole.

/Nice guy who gets the girls when he acts like an asshole.
 
2005-01-02 8:55:12 PM  
Reading this made me want to puke. Get some farking spine and ask her out if you like her. Don't hide behind this nice guy facade. It is not helping anyone. Be yourself, if she likes you, you can be together.
 
2005-01-02 8:56:43 PM  
Christi: Trust me - every time I look at or think about 8floz, I smile too ;)

As I said, she's napping right now before she goes to work. And she has the cutest snore *grin*

I am more in love than I have been in my entire life. Life is good ;)
 
2005-01-02 9:01:46 PM  
This is for that time she interrupted the best killing spree youd ever orchestrated in GTA3

Umm. Kill her? Sheesh. Certain things are NOT interruptable.

/drunk
/could use a nice guy about now...or a not-so-nice one. Whatever.
 
2005-01-02 9:10:24 PM  
I see a lot of nice and very beautiful woman with guys who treat them like shiat.. and it seems the girls love them more for it.

I tried to stop being a nice guy and be the asshole jerk but I have this stupid conscience that I cannot seem to get rid of. I just can't be a dick to someone I care about :(
 
2005-01-02 9:12:40 PM  
I second what Nemnoch said.

I'm in a similar position. I can be an asshole and "get some", but I can't be an asshole to a woman I truly like (and I want my woman to be my friend first and foremost), so I'm pretty stuck in finding something worth more than a one-night fling.
 
2005-01-02 9:16:33 PM  
Nice guy seeking nice single gal 26 - 35, they seem to be an endangered species around here.

//Must like to read and to travel... Must be able to deal with my inherited cat from hell...

//life gets better for the nice guys after 25, up till then the dating scene was difficult.
 
2005-01-02 9:21:52 PM  
AgeOfReason

Totally 100% agree with you.

/was a jerk til he was 23 - had great luck with women...
//after that, started being nice and things just worked out.

Being a jerk didn't work well for me either, not that I didn't try really hard there for a while to make it work.. Lucky for me I happened to stumble across the most wonderful woman, who's as big a geek as I am...

/married 3 months
 
2005-01-02 9:32:07 PM  
Congrats BooBoo23! Hope you stay married a good long time.

My jerk experiment only lasted a matter of minutes tho and it failed miserably anyway.
 
2005-01-02 9:38:33 PM  
Nemnoch: My jerk experiment only lasted a matter of minutes

Mine lasted about 2 months and was wholly unsatisfying. Matter of fact, I met my wife in the final throes of jerkdom. She saw right through it, thank whatever powers there be...
 
2005-01-02 9:41:39 PM  
When I try to be a jerk they won't have anything to do with me at all. I guess you have to be a shallow jerk with good looks and a sports car.
 
2005-01-02 9:46:33 PM  
There's gotta be some kinda pheromone thing going on too. My roommate is poor, drives a 20 yr old falling apart station wagon full of trash and he is very rude. However, beautiful woman seem to throw themselves at him everywhere we go.

We went to a bookstore in the mall. He was highly pissed off, not talking to anyone and looking mean. He had also just gotten off work and was filthy and wearing torn up clothes. 6 incredibly hot ladies approached him and tried to strike up a conversation. He just ignored them and kept walking.. which seemed to fuel their desire even more. This kind of thing happens all the time! It's friggin insane how lucky some guys are.
 
2005-01-02 9:47:09 PM  
Oh, I forgot to mention that is is quite the ugly guy.
 
2005-01-03 1:15:21 AM  
This is a bunch of crap. I'm a jerk, and I don't get any women.
/not that I try at all

Keeps himself clean.
DAMN IT. So close.

/But at least I'm clean compared to those smelly Frenchies
//Damn it again

Why Nice Guys Can't Win

[image from img109.exs.cx too old to be available]

I used to be such a sweet, sweet thing. 'Til they got a hold of me. I opened doors for little old ladies; I helped the blind to see. I got no friends 'cause they read the papers - they can't be seen with me, and I'm gettin' real shot down. And feelin' mean!

No more Mr. Nice Guy! No more Mr. Clean! No more Mr. Nice Guy!!!

Most girls would prefer I not offer a shoulder to cry on because then they would be touching me.
 
2005-01-03 7:32:51 AM  
How about nice girls finish last? Seems guys only go for the whores.
 
2005-01-03 7:39:47 AM

The moral is that girls are idiots.

Are there any girls who have a sense of humor about those sort of jokes?

/mocks others who are different than him.. and just like him... mocks everyone
 
2005-01-03 7:44:22 AM  
How true this is.

My cousin has had this in his AIM profile for a while now. I re-read it all the time, and direct it to all of my friends.
 
2005-01-03 7:44:38 AM  
Best greenlight I've seen all day. I have so many "friends" its insane.

/let me hold that for you
 
2005-01-03 7:47:16 AM  
I can't seem to get the article to load, not savvy enough to specify the nature of my complaint, can someone post it if it's not too long?
 
2005-01-03 7:50:51 AM  
Duckie weeps quietly in the dark...it's so very, very dark...

Tiga, I was with you until the "never speaks ill of his ex'es" thing. I NEVER bring it up, but as I'm always the dumpee, never the dumper, it's hard for me not to break out in a spasm of Tourette's-like mumbling if someone asks. (biatch....biatch!!!!!!) I'm 36 (just) and not "well-travelled" in the relationship sense, bet ending them has never been my idea.
