A young male who will give up countless hours of his time listening to the problems of his very attractive female friends because they need someone to talk to about their apathetic, Baywatch jock of a boyfriend because no one else will listen or genuinely care. Although always surrounded by beautiful girls the nice guy can’t get a girlfriend or even facilitate the alleviation of certain “drives” because his “ordinary” physical appearance will forever be compared to the Baywatch beach bum’s. The nice guy would never capitalize on a vulnerable girl, objectify or cheat on a girl, he will go out of his way and bend over backwards to help his “friends” and will never ask for anything in return but no matter how intelligent, understanding, humorous, compassionate, trusting or loyal the nice guy is the female cohort will always pass him up and endure any length of abuse, objectification, apathy and cold-heartedness from a man if he has physical attractiveness, fashion, big muscles and chiseled facial features.

The nice guy will eventually realize that his dependability and empathy will never be appreciated and all his friendships with females are all one-sided. This coupled with years of watching girls go for tanned, muscular jerk-offs with nice cars while he desperately hopes someone will realize that how viable he actually is will spawn and incubate the nice guy’s insecurities and he will eventually abandon his views, dumb-down his speech, take-up weight-lifting and switch majors from cancer research with a minor in theoretical physics to playground management so he can devote his time to emulating Baywatch characters and football players so that he will one day be viewed as more than a “nice guy.”

The nice guy will eventually work up the courage to ask out his attractive female friend but will invariably be turned down because she’s so self-centered that she’d never actually had a smidgeon of compassion for the nice guy’s feelings or even realized that he’s interested in girls. After rejecting the nice guy, the girl will downplay the supposed friendship to the point where they never speak again, which in turn will make the nice guy depressed (ironically, he won’t have anyone to talk to) because he’s devoted so much time and energy and has become so warped from being exposed to these kinds of people that he will either live the rest of his life alone in a tiny apartment, jerking off to old Saved by the Bell episodes or get drunk one night and impregnate a 300-pound, cross-eyed derelict who works at Wendy’s and spend the rest of his life being treated like shit.

The whole ‘nice guy’ phenomenon really supports the idea that people primarily care about physical appearances and that shrewdness, selfishness and narcissism will always triumph over compassion, rapport and “inner beauty.”
"Jeez Patrick, I hope I can find a nice guy like you someday."

"Well, if you need me I'll be at home, crying myself to sleep while masturbating to the sound of my 70-year-old neighbors having sex...I might also play some ps2."

1. Pre-2000s, the word is used to describe a person (male) who is generally social and positive to friends, family, and anybody he associates. He is dependable, means well, and looks out for people he's close to.

In the dating pool. Some guys discovered they can come on too hard and be rejected, so they decided that if they become 'nice' and act friendly to the girl, she would grow to trust him and later allow him to take her. Even if she wasn't looking for a relationship or already has someone. Unfortunately, once he realises, the guy becomes resentful and views her as a slut for sleeping with one person she's committed to, or stupid enough to date a bad boy (note that any male that already claims his girl, regardless of look, criminal history (existing or nonexisting), or personality, will be the 'asshole').

Thus, they are people who always whine to themselves (at forums, to each other, or a hapless victim) wondering why, as they're such a 'Nice Guy'. It's become a word that's taken an ironic meaning.

2. An annoying self-designated third-wheeler who puts an unhealthy interest in a couple's relationship, but won't talk to or socialise with girl's own boyfriend. But will completely slam her to friends the minute he realises that she won't cheat/dump boyfriend, let alone do the 'pity-fuck' for him regardless if she feels chemically attracted to him or not. Thus causing a whole line of insults to be written about her online.
Dean: "Check this guy over there, next to my girlfriend. He creeps me the fuck out. But I'm not sure if he's a nice guy or her new gay friend."

Steve: "Dude, he skulks around her like a vulture. You're gonna need to break it to her later."

A young male who will give up countless hours listening to the problems of his very attractive female friends who talk about their apathetic, Baywatch jock of a boyfriend because he actually believes listening and genuinely caring is going to eventually get him laid. Although always surrounded by beautiful girls, the nice guy can’t get a girlfriend or even facilitate the alleviation of certain “drives” because he himself will always compare his “ordinary” physical appearance to the Baywatch beach bum’s. The nice guy would never capitalize on a vulnerable girl, objectify or cheat on a girl, he will go out of his way and bend over backwards to help his “friends” and will never ask for anything in return but no matter how intelligent, understanding, humorous, compassionate, trusting or loyal the nice guy is. The female cohort will always pass him up and endure any length of abuse, objectification, apathy and cold-heartedness from a man if he has physical attractiveness, fashion, big muscles and chiseled facial features because for her it's better than dealing with a man that will grovel at her feet when she tries to break up with him because he doesn't understand how pathetic and transparent appeasement really is.

The nice guy will eventually realize that his dependability and empathy will never be appreciated and all his friendships with females are all one-sided long before he realizes that putting up the effort to deal with a shallow, materialistic bitch is worth even so much as one ounce of his time and energy. After rejecting the nice guy, the girl will never even think about dating a nice guy in the future, which in turn will make the every other nice guy on the planet feel even more depressed because they all devote so much time and energy to being exactly what many other shallow, materialistic bitches know how to avoid men who are warped from being exposed to rejection they'll never understand to the point that he will either live the rest of his life alone in a tiny apartment, jerking off to old Saved by the Bell episodes or get drunk one night and impregnate a 300-pound, cross-eyed derelict who works at Wendy’s and spend the rest of his life being treated like shit.

The whole ‘nice guy’ phenomenon really supports the idea that nice guys primarily notice the physical appearances of other men and become insanely jealous to the point where they believe shrewdness, selfishness and narcissism will always triumph over compassion, rapport and “inner beauty” because they never realize they are driving these women straight into the arms of these assholes, usually because they don't understand that always being nice makes every nice act completely meaningless and disgenuine for a woman because that's all they do 24/7.
"Jeez Patrick, I hope I can find a nice guy like you someday."

"Well, if you need me I'll be at home, crying myself to sleep while masturbating to the sound of my 70-year-old neighbors having sex while playing some ps2 because all I know how to do is be a sickly sweet doormat and feel sorry for myself. Please love me with your pity."

Insecure men who are generally useless at everything, which is why they don't get girls. If a man is smart, confident, good-looking, ambitious, witty, AND nice, will he be called 'a nice guy'? No. He'll be called cute, or sexy, or any of a number of positive terms.

The 'nice guy' tag is left as a consolation prize for those useless bastards whose only redeeming quality is their niceness. These guys can't make women feel special (apart from being an emotional tampon), don't have the confidence or style to show that they're able and talented, and don't have any touch of charm or wit. In short, they can't really compete with other men because they're too hesitant and insecure.

Thus, they deliberately pander to attractive women whom they put on a pedestal, not out of genuine concern for women as friends, but because they secretly want some, and this is the only way in which they can really try and get some.

But women can smell this, so they tag them as nice guys: the perfect friends, and the worst of all possible lovers (serial killers aside).
Woman 1: That John, he's a nice guy and all, but...
Woman 1's friends all giggle in shared understanding.

There are nice guys, and there are "nice guys".

The latter believe that there are only 2 ways to be male: to be either a "macho man" (misogynistic, narcissistic, aggressive jerkoff) or a "nice guy" (misogynistic, narcissistic, passive-aggressive jerkoff, but also manipulative and spineless). They believe that talking to a woman for five seconds without saying "shut up bitch" means that they're a paragon of everything women want and are thus automatically owed pussy. When they're denied it, it's the woman's failing.

Although they see themselves as having no self-esteem, in reality they actually view themselves as better than "macho men" and when women reject them clearly said women have been lying when they say they want a "nice guy". They thus try and turn into the macho jerks they claim to despise because that's what women "actually want".

Never does it occur to them that 1) they're not actually very nice 2) by and large women don't want macho jerks, they're just less annoying than "nice guys" 3) there’s a third option: being an ACTUALLY nice guy. Someone who DOESN'T try and screw with women's heads, someone who has ACTUAL respect for women rather than just tries a different dishonest tactic to get laid, and someone who has the guts to be honest about what they want and the spine to suck it up when they don't get it rather than whining about how dreadful women are and getting gradually more bitter and hateful.
Nice guy: I'm such a nice guy, why don't girls want me? They say they want nice guys! But they go out with macho jerks! Or they dump me for them! They're all lying bitches who break your heart!
Actually nice guy: Arrogant, misogynistic, whiny - what woman WOULDN'T want you?

A guy who, rather than risk rejection by asking women out, forges friendships with them hoping that eventually it'll lead to romance. A Nice Guy will often claim that they treat women with respect and then get angry when they don't reward him with sex.

Not to be confused with a guy who is geuinely nice.
Nice Guy: All these other guys treat girls like shit! I've never gone around acting like an asshole! Why don't you date me? It's not fair!
Woman: I'm sorry, am I supposed to be interested in you just because you meet minimum standards of decency?

A man who places women on a pedestal and thinks that because he is nice to a woman is "owed" some form of attention or love. Often clingy. When relationships fails, blames women for not liking "nice guys" instead of realizing his behavior and pedestal-placing is what gets him rejected.
See other examples of "Nice Guy" that take a sympathetic view.
