‘Nice Guys’ Who Weren’t So Nice After All

If you ever hear a girl talking about how she’s looking for a nice guy, chances are she’s not looking for the men who claim they’re nice guys while proceeding to insult them or try to hit on them.

Every woman has had experience with the man who gets upset when she’s not interested or feels that he’s owed something from her because they’re friends or he because he’s been a normal, polite human being. You don’t get bonus points for treating someone with common decency.

She’s Lucky To Get Away From Him

You’d think that “I’m married” would have been enough to deter him, or at least enough to convince him to change the path of this conversation, but you’d be wrong.

Your Input Is Noted

Just because someone is doing something in public or in front of you does not mean you have the right to comment or give your opinion on it. That’s nice that you prefer your women more natural, but she never asked.

No, Actually, I’d Disagree

We’d like to think that most people would disagree with this statement, simply because it is untrue. They are not the same thing, and you can’t really compare them fairly.

Have You Tried Being Someone Else?

If simply being yourself doesn’t seem to be working for you, maybe you should try being someone else for a change. It seems like you might end up with better results.

It Shouldn’t Need To Be Explained

Sure, I guess you could see how a man might think that spying or creeping on a woman would be considered flattering… Nope, scratch that. There’s really no positive way to spin being a peeping Tom.

Well, That Escalated Quickly

You slid into her DMs, so that means she automatically has to be interested in going out with you or hanging out with you? Someone, please explain that logic. You’re not doing her a favor by giving her a compliment, and she doesn’t owe you anything in return.

Making A Great First Impression

We’re going to take a wild guess and say that this man hasn’t been receiving a lot of matches on Tinder, despite his incredible profile. And he probably claims it’s because women don’t realize what a catch he is or how nice he is…

Nice Guys Get Served Last

This tweet may have been written by a man who is self-aware and is joking, but most women working in the service industry will tell you that they’ve had customers who absolutely feel like this. As if giving good service and being polite isn’t their literal job.

Alex must be one pretty spectacular woman for this man to commit to making new Facebook profiles and stalking her forever. He’s a nice guy, why don’t you give your friendly neighborhood stalker a chance?

Don’t Discriminate, Appreciate

This has to be a joke, right? Go ahead and claim discrimination. We’d rather deal with that than have to deal with a man who thinks offering to make us a sandwich is some sort of feminist move.

Go Ahead And Block Her

A truly nice guy, or just a nice person, would not get upset with someone for setting boundaries and being uncomfortable with someone flirting with them when they’re in a relationship with someone else.

We’ll Swipe Left

At least he’s doing everyone a favor by showing exactly who is right from the beginning. You don’t even need to spend your time trying to get to know him, you can just swipe left.

Unsolicited Nudes Are Never The Answer

Did he really think that sliding into a woman’s DMs by sending her nudes when he hadn’t spoken to her in years and had no prior relationship with her was going to be effective?

Why Can’t They Just Be Friends?

It’s okay to make your intentions known or tell someone you have feelings for them, but if they don’t feel the same way, that’s the end of it. Not every woman is secretly harboring feelings for every man they’re friends with.

“Meatheaded Dullards” Is A Solid Insult TBH

This particular tweet may have been written in jest, knowing how it would come off, but the problem is that some men actually feel this way despite not knowing anything about a woman’s relationship.

Strong Murderer Vibes Here

This is not the vibe we like to see. Any man who tries to make you feel embarrassed or dumb for being slightly nervous or worried about going out with a stranger you met on the internet is not going to be worth your time.

He’s One Of The Good Guys!!

Though there’s no time stamp on the original message, they matched on the same day he sent the second message, so it took less than 24 hours for him to make this switch.

A Reformed “Nice Guy”

We love to see a self-aware man. We can figure him for being a nice guy in his 20s because he’s reformed, but now he needs to help the rest of them who haven’t come to that realization yet.

The Friend Zone Doesn’t Exist

Maybe if you spent a little less time commenting things like this on Facebook and more time getting to know a woman you’re interested in, you might have a better success rate.

He’s Got Nothing To Worry About

It doesn’t look like there’s any chance of her wanting to go out with him after this stellar interaction, so he doesn’t need to worry about how to manage dating a single mother. Problem solved!
