    I've been on two dates with a guy, who I've been speaking to for about a month. I usually attract the wrong sort, so I'm not used to having the attention of a 'nice guy'. He's really polite and kind to the point it makes me cringe. He never winds me up and he always corrects me if I make a joke about myself. I am also quite confident and he's really on the shy side.

    I'm not sure if I just need to get used to him... or if there's serious compatibility issues?

    Do you like this guy? If not, break up with him. That is generally how relationships work

    Would you like him to be a bad boy then? If that's what you're in to and you're complaining about someone being not your type (i.e. too nice) then there is no point in seeing​ him anymore.

    Ah yeh break up with him if you can't get it out of him.

    Yeh might just need to get it out of him. Yeh know mess with his head a little to get a response from him. And then make it a game between yee. In no time he'll have some confidence and personality to him.

    Thank your lucky stars!

    I'd rather pick a genuinely real nice guy over a bad boy all the time.I think maybe subconsciously, you really don't expect anyone to treat you the way you actually deserve to be treated. Hence your adverse reaction towards him.

    It sounds like you have a problem not him. He is being himself and open.
