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."

A man who is to afraid to speak his mind. Often times they will complain about how they are mistreated by women and hate the "Alpha's", "Frat Guy" ,"Athletes" and label them as troglodytes. What the nice guys fail to realize, is they are weak at a fundamental level. They only befriend the girls who are attractive because they have hopes that the friendship will result in sex or relationship. They kling on to these attractive woman because they do not have enough confidence in themselves to say they deserve more and better from these relationships. The pandering fool often is depressed because though he feels that he is close to the girl, he understands fundamentally the woman will not grow to like him. This is because girls are attracted to confidence on a very basic level. The obsequious ways of the nice guy are the embodiment of lack of confidence and self loathing. Nice guys do not strive to be jerks but good men. The difference in the two paradigms is this, nice guys do what they do to receive validation and praise, good men do what they want because they want to. Good men are truthful, honest and blunt.
I was a nice guy and hated myself and the world, I became a good man and I love life and the world.

Any man who is kind and respectful. If a true nice guy is constantly rejected, he will take it in silence and walk away. However, this is usually because he is nice but boring. Sometimes, the person can will himself to be more interesting. However, there could be significant factors that play a role like health and family problems.

A common stereotype is that EVERY unsuccessful nice guy must be misogynist or whiny, hence why he doesn't succeed. Oftentimes, the biggest proponents of this view are pretty whiny, judgmental, and very pointy-headed themselves. There are many unsuccessful nice guys out there that have external problems in their lives which prevent them from being interesting. They are just looking for like everyone else, but are held in a negative light by those whiners.
Unsuccessful genuinely nice guy: I have had problems with my breathing and come from a dysfunctional family, making it hard to live a full life. I haven't even kissed a girl, but long for love like everyone else. I'm fine with polite rejections, but I find rude rejections to be overly harsh--

Whiny internet nice guy critic (on blog): YEA WELL MUST U HATE WOMEN AND ARE SUPER WHINY ALL U DO IS COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN I MEAN I, ME, AND MYSELF NEVER WINE AND AM XTREMELY TOLERANT AND NONJUDGMENTAL. WOW YOU WANT LOVE, YOU JUST THINK WOMEN OWE U SHIT

Unsuccessful genuinely nice guy: I believe you're being judgmental. Maybe you should get off the internet, breathe fresh air, quit making assumptions, and quit provoking people. Not everyone has it as good as you. Good day.

1. A guy who might very well get laid a ton but will never pleasure fuck someone he knows is vulnerable. A nice guy is just as capable of casual sex as anyone else but he'll give you the heads up.

2. A guy who is usually very handsome and secure enough about himself to empathize with women. He might have problems fitting in for not betraying his values but he persists.

3.A man often derided by ugly jocks and stupid girls who equate the presence of empathy in a person with an absence of confidence.

4. A very cool, profound man who often possesses great artistic gifts. He may grow up to be a rockstar and laugh in the faces of the petty little shitheads who teased him for not fitting in.

5. A man who will kick your ass just as fast as any other if you mess with him but would not dare hit his wife or girlfriend.
That cool rocker was a nice guy who was opposed to sexism with a passion. I'll be damned if he didn't kick that jock shithead's ass though...

A term that a mother uses to describe any single man she approves of and fantasizes about her daughter marrying, but for whom the daughter usually claims to have zero interest in *that* way.

A man labelled a "nice guy" is often a superficially respectful and intelligent, but also frustratingly indecisive or cowardly person who won't get the aforementioned girl because he won't initiate or ask.

Sometimes, the girl dislikes him and finds him boring because he always plays his life safe and fails to go out and accomplish anything interesting with it. (This is why the mother likes him.)

Other times, he is a friend of the girl and desires a relationship with someone, but fails to consider the obvious candidate. (This is the most cliched of romantic-comedy cliches).
Mother: "That guy who dropped you off home seemed like a nice guy."

Girl: "Yeah, I guess."

A heterosexual male who has been rejected countless times by the opposite gender for his lame-ass attempts to woo them. A nice guy usually expect complementary sex for something the average person would do.

The "nice guy" will pretend to be "nice" up until his rejection from his target and he will reveal his true nature as a misogynistic, inept piece of shit and referring to himself as being "friend-zoned".
Stay away from these type of people at all costs or just piss at them fucking piss at them.
"Nice Guy": HEY HOT CHICK I OPEN DOOR FOR YOU PLEASE SEX ME

"Nice Guy": GIRLS ONLY GO FOR JERKS WHY DOESNT THE NICE GUY EVER GET THE GIRL
