tribute to the nice guys
    #4395419 - 07/12/05 12:13 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

This is a tribute to the nice guys. The nice guys that finish last, that never become more than friends, that endure hours of whining and bitching about what assholes guys are, while disproving the very point. This is dedicated to those guys who always provide a shoulder to lean on but restrain themselves to tentative hugs, those guys who hold open doors and give reassuring pats on the back and sit patiently outside the changing room at department stores. This is in honor of the guys that obligingly reiterate how cute/beautiful/smart/funny/sexy their female friends are at the appropriate moment, because they know most girls need that litany of support. This is in honor of the guys with open minds, with laid-back attitudes, with honest concern. This is in honor of the guys who respect a girl’s every facet, from her privacy to her theology to her clothing style.

This is for the guys who escort their drunk, bewildered female friends back from parties and never take advantage once they’re at her door, for the guys who accompany girls to bars as buffers against the rest of the creepy male population, for the guys who know a girl is fishing for compliments but give them out anyway, for the guys who always play by the rules in a game where the rules favor cheaters, for the guys who are accredited as boyfriend material but somehow don’t end up being boyfriends, for all the nice guys who are overlooked, underestimated, and unappreciated, for all the nice guys who are manipulated, misled, and unjustly abandoned, this is for you.

This is for that time she left 40 urgent messages on your cell phone, and when you called her back, she spent three hours painstakingly dissecting two sentences her boyfriend said to her over dinner. And even though you thought her boyfriend was a chump and a jerk, you assured her that it was all ok and she shouldn’t worry about it. This is for that time she interrupted the best killing spree you’d ever orchestrated in Halo2 to rant about a rumor that romantically linked her and the guy she thinks is the most repulsive person in the world. And even though you thought it was immature and you had nothing against the guy, you paused the game for two hours and helped her concoct a counter-rumor to spread around the floor. This is also for that time she didn’t have a date, so after numerous vows that there was nothing “serious” between the two of you, she dragged you to a party where you knew nobody, the beer was awful, and she flirted shamelessly with you, justifying each fit of reckless teasing by announcing to everyone: “oh, but we’re just friends!” And even though you were invited purely as a symbolic warm body for her ego, you went anyways. Because you’re nice like that.

The nice guys don’t often get credit where credit is due. And perhaps more disturbing, the nice guys don’t seem to get laid as often as they should. And I wish I could logically explain this trend, but I can’t. From what I have observed on campus and what I have learned from talking to friends at other schools and in the workplace, the only conclusion I can form is that many girls are just illogical, manipulative bitches. Many of them claim they just want to date a nice guy, but when presented with such a specimen, they say irrational, confusing things such as “oh, he’s too nice to date” or “he would be a good boyfriend but he’s not for me” or “he already puts up with so much from me, I couldn’t possibly ask him out!” or the most frustrating of all: “no, it would ruin our friendship.” Yet, they continue to lament the lack of datable men in the world, and they expect their too-nice-to-date male friends to sympathize and apologize for the men that are jerks. Sorry, guys, girls like that are beyond my ability to fathom. I can’t figure out why the connection breaks down between what they say (I want a nice guy!) and what they do (I’m going to sleep with this complete ass now!). But one thing I can do, is say that the nice-guy-finishes-last phenomenon doesn’t last forever. There are definitely many girls who grow out of that train of thought and realize they should be dating the nice guys, not taking them for granted. The tricky part is finding those girls, and even trickier, finding the ones that are single.

So, until those girls are found, I propose a toast to all the nice guys. You know who you are, and I know you’re sick of hearing yourself described as ubiquitously nice. But the truth of the matter is, the world needs your patience in the department store, your holding open of doors, your party escorting services, your propensity to be a sucker for a pretty smile. For all the crazy, inane, absurd things you tolerate, for all the situations where you are the faceless, nameless hero, my accolades, my acknowledgement, and my gratitude go out to you. You do have credibility in this society, and your well deserved vindication is coming.

"Nice guys" who hang around other guys girlfriend waiting for their chance to get laid while pretending to be the "nice guy" are the worst. They're just assholes without a spine. I think there are occasions of genuine nice guyness, but overall they're just looking to get laid one way or another, hence why nice guys always complain that they are nice guys.

The thing about nice guys are, I always start dating guys that I think are "nice guys" and by the end of it their jerks. So if there are nice guys that aren't going to pull a Dr. Jeckel/ Mr Hide on me, I'd love to meet them.

With that said, I've got to vouch for ALOT of the guys here, you guys are nice guys, actually, most of you are beyond nice to me and have helped me out in many a situation and have listened to me cry and bitch and whine, luckily no one has had to go shopping with me...and if there wasn't so so many miles between me and like every nice guy on here, then maybe I'd be dating one.

<3 you guys, thanks for always being the best!

Me neither.

Nice guys are cool, though, as long as they're not whiny little bitches. I would count myself as a nice guy.

Its funny, because I have this friend that is always telling me to 'be evil'...

I'm always like 'Dude, think about what you are saying and think about who you are saying it to...'

If I was evil, there would be a LOT of people at the bottom of the lake right now...

After all, I DO have friends in construction and waste management... fuhgetaboutit...

I know people who, you give them a 20 rock and ask them to break a nigga's leg, they'll ask you 'which one?'

shit, my good/evil control is a digital switch, not an analogue knob... maybe that's why I draw so many lines in the sand...

This is true, they're the guys who actually believe that females are something special. *** If anyone actually puts up with the bullshit listed in that original post then it's their own damn fault.

Any guy who does something like that is a bitch. :smirk:

*** SEXISM DISCLAIMER *** when I say "females", I'm referring to the bitches who are guilty of the aforementioned offenses (taking advantage of "nice guys") I'm not referring to all women because some women actually ARE worth more than a good fuck.

I'm a nice guy and I most usually finish Last where females are concerned.  I have endured hours and hours of bitching about asshole guys to only find that they went right back to that asshole guy.  I'll never understand it but I am glad that someone made a tribute to the few of us nice guys that are left .....


Gillette

There are nice guys here on the shroomery.  I know a few of them on a personal level.  I am not hitting on you or trying to pick you up. I am simply saying that the nice guy you are looking for may be closer than you think.



Much :heart: :peace: :smile:

nice guys are the ones trying to get laid... if they get in and a relationship starts, give it like a year and watch the jerk come out. oh and nice guys make nice punching bags for chicks to take advantage of. grow some balls and maybe you'll actually get honest reactions from women. you wont just be the person with a penis they seek attention from when the bf is being a dick
