Don't Be a "Nice Guy"

I think the worst thing a guy can hear a girl say to him is -- "Oh, you're such a nice guy." Personally, I'd hate a girl telling me that. Of course, I don't really have to worry too much about it, since I am not a nice guy.

I'm not sure what the girl is actually trying to convey with the "nice guy" statement. I believe it's something on the lines of "I like you. I'm going to laden you with all my little secrets and life's woes. I'm going to call you to pick me up when I'm stranded at the station at 3 in the morning. I'm going to ask you to come take a look at my car when it has a problem. Basically, I'm going to use you like a butler, bed-servant, mechanic, cash-source, shoulder to cry on. But I'm never going to sleep with you." The guy, unfortunately, only cares about the last sentence.

Yes, there are some guys who actually believe it's good thing for a girl to call you a "nice guy". They argue that this is the first step to getting somewhere with the girl. I wouldn't listen to such guys too much -- they're normally the kind that also believe Santa Claus exists. There's a word to describe them. Let me see if I can remember it? Ah, yes -- 'Stupid'!

There are some other alternative versions to the "nice guy" routine:

1. I feel like I can tell you anything.
2. I feel really comfortable with you.
3. You are like my best friend.

Don't be fooled. All of these are just as dangerous as the original. If you hear any of them, you know you're in trouble. I suggest you run as far away from that girl as possible.

So if you're a guy reading this, don't be nice today. If you're a girl reading this, call me and tell me what a nice guy you think I am.

airilia - i've actually seen that site before.. in fact one of my friends claims to be quite the "expert" on "the ladder theory"..

what do you make of it?

airilia said...

the inventor of the theory a.k.a the intellectualwhore seems to be quite right..but that dude doesnt mention anything about commitments or 'thunderstorms' and definitely nothing about the 'secretary problem'!!:-D
p.s:the female pie chart and ladders are very very correct!!

If I say this to a guy, it means I treat him like a girlfriend.. which is very sad for the guy... :)
