A man who has rejected the societal notion of masculinity and chosen to define himself from the inside out instead, realising that traits such as empathy and nuturing are not actually limited to the female of the species, and nor are aggression and assertiveness limited to the male.

Despite this newfound revelation, however, there is still a strong genetic predisposition for humans to continuously behave as if we were animals seeking out the alpha male with those genes most suited for surviving in a hostile environment.

Often times, the average woman, whom society encourages to indulge in her weaknesses and surpress her strengths, is a self-loathing masochist who may appreciate the nice guy's friendship and understanding, but feels no attraction toward him because his insecurities remind her of why she hates herself. Therefore, she almost always seeks the dominant, aggressive, unempathic male with whom she can vicariously live to make up for her weaknesses. Of course, this inidividual, commonly known as a jerk, is also usually an egotistical, disloyal, and shallow person for whom societal dictates of masculinity will force him to disregard his mate's feelings and treat her as if she were beneath him.

Feeling emotionally unsatisfied, the female will then turn to her nice guy friend, whom she has long since castrated, for comfort, and complain to him about how men suck, except for him, and that he deserves a good girlfriend eventually except that it is never her or any other woman he might encounter.
I'm a Nice Guy? Fuck You!

A male who expects a female to accept his romantic advances simply because he is "nice," and is angered when she does not.

Possible causes for this phenomenon:

1.) He views romance as a prize he is entitled to, like his allowance, as long as he behaves himself.

2.) He thinks all women are the same dainty, smiling, flower-picking Disney princess, who want nothing more in a man than giant smiles, polite chit-chat, poetry readings, and doors held opened for them. He does not understand that women are individuals.

3.) He has a mental disability that encourages girls to put on a super-nice act around him, as they would around a child. He mistakes this for their real personality, and thinks they are really getting to know each other and clicking, when...no. (This one's pretty tragic, and no one's fault, really.)

4.) He's a really bad actor, so even girls who DO want a "nice, sensitive guy" can see right through his crap.

5.) He is a genuinely nice guy, but only goes for hot girls he has nothing in common with...while complaining that girls always go for the "wrong" guy.

6.) A closeted homosexual or transsexual, who has discovered how conveniently the "nice guy" motif can cover up his secret. ("I'm just not a man's man!") This can leave a bad impression on the girl, after she learns the truth. She may become so paranoid, that if the next guy she dates cheats on her with another woman, she may break into a joyful jig, exclaiming, "My boyfriend is straight!"
"I am so finished with dating nice guys! Next time a guy tries to pick me up in a sparkely blue prius, I'm not going on the date."

A Nice Guy is a guy who is friendly, kind, and understanding toward girls with the underlying condition that they must fall in love with him because he is the only friendly, kind and understanding man they've ever met. Nice Guys think that acting like a decent person makes them special and entitled to women's romantic affections and sex.

They believe that women have no minds or emotions of their own, and that they exist solely to reciprocate the affection of whichever man 'deserves' them. They will often try to guilt women into going out with and having sex with them.

If and when a woman rejects a Nice Guy, he will whine and moan and complain that girls are stupid and don't know what's good for them, and only like jerks that won't respect them or their feelings. Nice Guys invariably fail to see the irony in this.

Not to be confused with an actual nice guy (no capital letters!), a guy who is kind and decent without the underlying expectation that women are obligated to sleep with him or return whatever romantic affections he might have toward them.
Nice Guy: I'm so sorry that happened to you, here, go ahead and cry on my shoulder.

Girl: Thanks, you've really made me feel better. You're such a good friend.

Nice Guy: Great, now let me take you out to dinner and have a romantic evening ended with sex and marriage.

Girl: Sorry, I'm not really interested in you that way.

Nice Guy: Fuck you, you cold bitch. You're so stupid, why can't you see that I deserve you? After all the nice things I've done for you, you owe it to me to fall in love with me. Fine, I guess I just have to keep harrassing you and trying to guilt you into going out with and having sex with me.

There for girls who prefer to get slapped around by jocks and jerks and mistreated than to be treated right by a nice guy.

Note: the nice guy usually doesn't have the "hot" looks and body the girls are looking for. And the extreme charism and charm.
Hey, (insert a jocky boyfriend's name), come and screw me over instead; I don't wanna hang out with a Nice Guy who will treat me right forever!

Hey so you cheated on me, Brian? Cool I'll give you another chance. Better than the nice guy who never cheats right?

"Why can't he respect me for who I am once in a while!" yelled the cheerleader. Mr. Nice Guy, standing beside her, decided to comfort her and said, "It's okay. There are a lot more guys out there who are better than him. You deserve better. " "Screw that, I'll give him another chance. After all, he DID do some nice things to me. Someone who respects everyone for who they are, like you NG, is not someone who I deserve to spend my entire life with."

A man who you can absoulutely fall in love with. Someone who will appreciate you intirely and love you more than you will ever know.
A man who, despite any of his downfalls, he is so genuine that any intellegent person would never let him go. ( like I wont!)
The nice guys, may not be the strongest, or most good looking, but his character says volumes about him.
You can appreciate him entirely, because he will do no less.
Some may say that, " Nice guys finnish last."
It's there only down fall.
A nice guy is so rare a find that not everyone can appreciate him.
The perfect pair for a nice guy is a beautiful lady.
A Gentalman who acts as if you are the love of his life from the first time he meets you. He feels a need to make you smile or hold you when you are sad. He wants to be your everything, and if you let him, the nice guy can be just that.
