Nice guys finish last.
That’s one of the expressions you hear that’s typically unleashed when a guy feels some kind of rejection from a girl. He’s quite baffled since he is “nice” and all.
“Girls like bad guys.”
“Girls just enjoy the thrill of the chase.”
“I’m just too much of a nice guy.”
Yes, I’ve heard it before. And I’m not here to argue against the fact that, sometimes, girls may be initially drawn to guys who exhibit darker traits, though those relationships are usually short-term once the girl realizes what she’s dealing with.
However, I do sincerely question the relevancy of being nice as an excuse to explain rejection.
