    I don't know, I think that's part of the issue.

    Nice guy as in he sucks up to and pleases people or he is genuinely nice, kind to people and have values so that he does not allow others to walk all over him?

    A perfect guy, a supreme gentleman.

    The former.

    I don't think the latter is a nice guy. It's just a guy.

    Except more women fantasise about Justin Trudeau and JFK than they do Trump. This doesn't mean I am anti-Trump, but I've literally never seen this trend of being an ******* meaning you get girls.

    Lots of women really like this handsome accomplished guy who stands up for the underdog and generally comes across as empathetic, in all the years I have been alive, I have never ever seen someone who was openly obnoxious and cruel being loved by women.

    Let's face it when a girl says to a guy "you're a nice guy but..." the guy is screwed. Majority of guys I meet are nice. They just have other qualities that outdo that, they have a good sense of humour, intelligent, adventurous, charitable etc. If the only redeemable quality a guy has is the fact that he can be nice in a social setting, then he's most likely bland/boring and not very fun to be around. My two pennies.

    Not entirely sure what this has to do with being a "nice guy".

    I don't think I'd consider myself one, I'm not entirely pleasant. I wouldn't say that really matters though. A "friend" of mine has stated that I am the "nice" one, out of a few of us. I don't see it.

    They're attention seeking sluts looking for a fantasy and I bet none of them are attractive. It's like saying the men on Jeremy Kyle are successful playboys because they have lots of sex...with fat, meth addicted whores.

    This pretty much sums it up. If you are defined as the funny guy, or the intelligent guy then those are your most desirable or favourite qualities. If you're described as a nice guy then the best thing they can think of is that you are nice. Obviously everyone should be nice, but if nice is the first word that comes to mind most people will consider that too bland. This is also not gender neutral, it works for girls and guys. She's nice? Great, what else? Most people are nice, it shouldn't be a defining feature.

    First of all, the problem with Trump isn't that he's not empathetic. Actually, he has so many problems I don't know where to begin. But suffice to say, even if he was empathetic, he'd still look like a pitbull who hangs around with bags of wotsits in his spare time.

    Secondly, the term "nice guy" is employed by opportunistic losers to make up for their lack of other qualities that make human beings attractive like ambition, character, charm, wit, etc. So whilst I have no doubt that women love Trudeau, I very much doubt that he is a "nice guy".

    It's well documented. All of the 100s of women can't be 'sluts'.

    There is something to be said for this, but I'd say the relationship dynamic is totally different to what people would except. The guy isn't constantly being mean or womanising, he has a history of outrageously negative acts, but shows warmth and sensitivity to his woman. It's the same reason women ride horses, they like the idea of a large and power beast being controlled by the thing between their legs.
