Nice Guys Quotes
If I were to make a checklist of all the patterns the guys I repeatedly dated in my late teens and early twenties had, it’d look like this:. Sure, these men were all awful and hopefully done their own soul-searching, but after going to therapy and reading up about my own hangups, I realized that I picked these types over and over again for a reason.

Women want a man who will take the lead and show them rather than having to exercise power over the situation. They do not like being involved in games, and too often they believe games are being played when the man is leading them to nowhere.

Women can see a nice guy coming when he agrees and goes along with just about everything she says and wants to do. One result of the Nice Guy Syndrome is once he is involved with a woman, he gives up control of his own life to accommodate hers.

Her experiences in the dating world inspire her “Relationship Rant” column. Check back every week for her take on dating and relationships. Well this column is an ode to the disappearing nice guy.

As a result, women’s frail egos live for the attention and inevitably end up with the wrong guy.
Today’s dating scene has become one that puts focus on the wrong things. It’s all about what you own as opposed to what’s inside someone’s heart. Let’s see, we no longer own cell phones, we have iPhones and smartphones. It’s not about your home anymore; it’s all about the McMansion and how many unoccupied bedrooms you have. In certain cities, specifically Atlanta and Washington, there is an undercurrent of “bling” that undermines the dating scene and the ability for wonderful people to find each other.
The nice guy doesn’t travel in posses, hunting to see how many digits he can score in an evening.

The Torah explains that a relationship between a man and a woman is like a fire. There are fires that burn, with the flames destroying everything in their midst, and there are the fires that warm, that glow, that illuminate. Your relationships sound like they are pretty fiery. They probably start out very exciting, very intense, and yet quickly taper off.
Whereas, when you had met someone that was nice, kind and warm, you found that you were bored. Perhaps the problem is that you are looking for an intense flame but not recognizing that often the intensity is not coming from the right place. A fire burns its highest when there is a conflict, something working against it. When the wind blows, the fire grows, but only until it is extinguished. And when the flame is lower, it is that much less likely to be blown out by some wind if wind comes its way.
It is not just symbolic that the relationship of a man and woman is compared to that of fire.

In fact, I have a tendency to date d-bags. The ones that are arrogant. The ones that lie, cheat, and lie again. The ones that withhold affection in order to gain power. How could I know that I have the tendency to do exactly this and yet continue to dive headfirst and knee-deep into the highs that come with catching the one who saves his affections only for the women ready to believe him? These men all share qualities that are not innately bad— in fact what makes these men appealing are the good qualities they all share: confident, outspoken, self-assured, aware.
But in no time, he reveals that that confidence was truly arrogance and a lack of concern for others. The outspokenness a mask for unapologetic tactless, rude and inappropriate outbursts. The awareness a tool for understanding and manipulating his captive audience. Well, women just like the challenge! Women inherently want to change, fix or save people!
Nice guys finish last
Men who complain that they are unlucky in love despite their ‘nice guy’ persona may have a sinister agenda. The so-called ‘Nice Guy’, the often physically unattractive man who overcompensates with clingy and over-the-top behaviour to women, is relentlessly mocked online. Dr Robert Glover , who’s studied the issue, says these men are often trying to form “covert contracts” with the target of their affections.

I clearly was choosing all the wrong people : entirely too dependent; too emotionally unaware; too unconfident about themselves to be confident about who I was. Some combination of those. The level of face-palming and eye-rolling at my own blubbering through romance had reached its peak. You get bored eventually and start to wonder when can you get off. So here I was, the only one still single among both high school and college friends, and finally stepping off another irritating, disappointing, predictable heartbreaker merry-go-round.
I was tossing my hands up in the air to my friends, a couple who had been together since high school. They wanted to set me up with nice guys. Guys they knew and could attest were decent people and motivated, balanced, and from good families. They never seemed dependent, emotionally stupid, unconfident, controlling, manipulative , possessive, or crazy in the beginning. These guys I dated were sneaky little fuckers.
Charismatic and charming, appearing confident and in-tune in the beginning. Then like a pot of water sitting on the heat too long, they boiled. Or maybe a lobster being put in the hot water is more accurate; their shells turning color as the pressure rose.
