Why Nice Guys Stay Single

THIS is the reason why nice guys stay single, and then people complain about nice guys not existing anymore.

What is it about the nice guys that women find so repulsive? Well, maybe it’s because women want to be with someone who takes risk and who is fun to be around. Thrill is a very important component of every relationship and nice guys just cannot provide them with the much needed mental and emotional stimulation.

Women labeling someone as a nice guy is just their way of politely saying that the particular gentleman is not their type. Once you are labeled as the nice guy, you will automatically be seen as someone boring and predictable.

There are various psychological reasons why nice guys stay single:

  1. They Play Nice

Nice guys play by the rules. They always follow the societal norms and are never out of line. Moreover, they do not take risks and that is why, become mundane and predictable.

  1. Power Dynamics

Nice guys do not think of the shift in power when it comes to dating.

Have an opinion and defend it. You do not need to agree to everything she says. If there is something you don’t agree with, speak up!

Nice guys are always apologetic for literally everything. They will immediately apologize if their hand brushes with their date’s hand or if they accidentally touch them. Women do not appreciate overly apologetic attitude. They want the show of dominance and control. A man should be unapologetic and do the things that he deems fit for the situation without being apologetic.

  1. I really don’t care anymore. I’m so far beyond tired of being the only thing I’ve ever known how to be, and it never being enough. I didn’t have the luxury of having a father that taught me anything. All he did was make me feel inadequate in every way and throw me away the second he could so as not to look like a bad person to his family. All I want in life at this point is just a partner that won’t abandon me. But I guess being nice means nothing anymore.
