    most of the time, 'nice guy' is code for 'needy'.
    i don't want an asshole, but i don't want a leech who's gonna get all stalker-y after one date either.

    Self-described nice guys are some of the most vocal hypocrites. They whine and moan that women won't spread their legs for them because the guys aren't conventionally attractive, but you only ever see them latched onto a really attractive women way out of their league. Basically, they think the universe owes them supermodels and nothing less will do.

    I get these beta males crying on my shoulder at work every once in a while, and I'm not having it. My favorite response to them, "I don't want anything to do with a nice guy. I'm looking for a good man." I can always see the little hamster wheel trying to turn behind the eyes, but never quite getting up to speed.

    I have an old friend from high school on my facebook that needs to be on here. Half of what he does is bitch about how immature and unreasonable his girlfriend his, and I'm thinking (And you are incredibly mature and reasonable to air ALL of this on facebook)

    If you actually are a nice guy, there's a pretty good chance that a nice woman (or guy) will seek you out. Just be, don't advertise. I was the needy guy at one point, long ago, and I got enough smack downs that I finally woke up.

    Exactly. How often do you see these guys with a "nice girl," who not all PS'ed out, dressed like a whole, fake tan, hair extensions (basically LiLo!)? Never. These guys want arm candy, and get pissed when they get rejected for the "jerk."
