    I was up the other night thinking as you do and it occured to me that i may actually of actually developed nice guy syndrome.... and i think its started to come across when im on a night out aswel as i seem to end up becoming friends with girls on a night out rather than anything else. But that maybe because i am just one of them happy drunks who talks to everyone. Even in past relationships i have started becoming to nice and losing the spontanious edge. I became :
    *reliable
    *predictable
    *unargumentitive
    *and always bieng nice.

    What do people think? doctors for me? pump some anti-nice guy medicine back into me?.

    Anyone else suffering or got anything wise to say about this annoying syndrome?
    Orrrrr inject that syndrome into some local boys for me ?

    Or marry me, or something. Nice guys are few and hard to find sadly...

    Nice guys don't get rewarded often, but when they do get rewarded it is so SWEET.

    There's nothing wrong with being nice, just avoid being boring and non-flirty and you'll be fine.

    That's often a myth. There are plenty of "nice guys" there. In fact they make up the majority. Men aren't biologically created to be any meaner than women.

    Females who complain that they keep dating jerks are probably unlucky or more likely subconciously looking for jerks. These ideas that women like jerks perhaps are influencing males to act like jerks when they're actually not.

    I'm sorry if I sound a bit rude, but it kind of irritates me when girls keep saying that's true. It honestly isn't! Honest .

    I've kind of been screwed by my ex and made a lot less nice/naieve than I used to be.

    I hope I don't end up being a douchebag and screwing over my gf.

    Would you rather be a total womanising scum bag?

    Actually, don't answer that. Nice guys are severely underrated imo.
    O hai i'm a nice guy. Go out with me

    Girls always say they prefer nice guys.

    Girls always get with jerks.

    Facts of life. I'm almost at the end of being 'nice.' It gets me nowhere with girls. Being nice will get you lots of friends but it won't get you laid.

    Hey OP, I know what you mean!! But don't be alarmed...being a nice guy isn't a bad thing. You've just got to add the element of being daring and confident....then the girls who matter will come flocking (or you'll run into her/them!!)

    Nice guy syndrome sucks. It's not the being nice, its the non-flirty, boring predicatble, woman on a pedestal behavior thats the problem. Just be confident. Know that you are wanted for you.

    I was being facetious, and thanks for the relationship advice :lolwut:

    I'm aware it's a common misconception...Much like that 'girls don't want nice guys'...the point the OP was trying to make.

    And you need to consider that unless a person is constantly moving about (or mid change of circumstance, i.e. going to uni) you tend to be around the same people regularly so it's not like new people crop up constantly, so incase they aren't nice guys, they will be the source of current opinion.

    When me and my friends say 'nice guy' we usually mean someone who, is perfectly pleasant and cool to hang out with but we just aren't that physically attracted to. Basically someone we just want 'to be friends' with.

    As for bad boys, I have never found being treated badly a turn on and hopefully never will.
