Subject: Great site!
Still not finished looking through your site...but great job anyway! If
guys will take your advice they will not only save possibly years of
agony, money and who knows? Perhaps even save our economy! A lot of
funny stuff, but totally true.

Subject: nice guys suck :-o
you're absolutely right. albeit i was once a partially nice guy [never
did the insecure thing, but i hit upon other criteria] since rehab, i've
adopted methods, tactics if you will; the same girls who were finding
distaste in certain nice guy practices responded much better to thinking
i didn't care and would leave their ass. amazing. now, nice guys eat
ass, and im sworn to be an active rehabilitator of these schmucks.
love the site. tah tah.

Great web site, a friend of mine sent me a link to the nice guy section.
Glad to see there are men and women out there who can see through it.
There are not enough who do, or maybe not enough who are willing to
speak up about it. (only way for "nice guys" to change is for them to
see the self-defeat in their behavior)
Your contact page negates the question I had though. ^.^ Oh well.
Keep up the great work.

I agree with what was written and I feel that most of it is true for me
to various extents actually. Even before reading this I felt that way
and was aware of it, though not pleased. However, one thing you should
realize is that some people like this can change, but others truly can
not. Some are just born like this and are permanently stuck like it.
Kinda like how some are born gay or something perhaps. This isn't a
victim thing or a feel bad for someone thing, it's more of just stating
a reality for some.
Sure you can sorta pretend to not be those things that were described in
the article, which I have contemplated myself, but really then you are
just living a lie. Anyone who "likes" you based on your pretending is
merely liking a person who does not really exist. They like the
Just letting you know it is not so simple to just change for everyone.
There is no light switch to flip unfortunately.
[Life is hard. Suck it up. Nobody said it was SIMPLE. Quit whining.]
It's a very real problem
and not everyone should just verbally assault "nice guys" into oblivion
[Telling someone to get off the pity-pot and start taking responsiblity is a "verbal assault"? Somebody needs a spine transplant.]
for the way they are.
[For the way they CHOOSE TO BE.]
Well at least you enjoy doing it, so someone is
[Wah. Wah. Fuckin' Wah. My heart would bleed for you. If I had one.]
Just remember, "nice guys" are people too and they are not all some
strange life form devoid of feelings and incapable of true love. One day
you may very well have a child who is born like this and see that it is
not so simple to have him just snap out of it. So getting Judge Judy on
his ass might not always be the best approach. I am 25 now and have
never had a girlfriend and every girl I have truely been interested in
(2, I guess I am not a quantity person) just wants to be friends. I am
actually ok with that now and do not mind a life of being single, so I
guess everything turned out ok.

Wow, I was whining and wallowing so much I never put my feeling
together. Reading these pages has clued me into why I feel like I do day
in and day out. Your article 'Why "Nice
Guys" are often such LOSERS' was like watching a
documentary about myself.

I take it that you're already aware, but this is really funny!
[After reading many of the entries, and with no disrespect for the few INTELLIGENT emails emanating form the FARK link, I have to conclude that the average FARK reader has a brain the size of his (flaccid) dick.]
I feel like I've been described perfectly in the "Nice Guy" rant, but the site's great! Keep it up...

Dear Heartless Bitches,
My name is Nathan Salloum, and I am writing to you to applaud you on
your completely head-first approach to the issue of nice guys.
Confidence is everything in a relationship, and it needs to come from
both sides. I know many "nice-girls", and I myself was once credited as,
and sometimes fall back into, being a "nice-guy". When people think that
just by being a nice person, and waiting around for someone to come to
them, they'll finally hit the jackpot, they might as well be playing
blackjack in vegas and saying "Hit Me" at 21. Asking for sympathy that
you can't ever get a girlfriend/boyfriend, or complaining that you can't
get laid is just absurd.
If you want it, you should have the balls to go out there and try to
find it. Heartless Bitches International should provide handguides to
all public schools in North America, and be the leading educator of
relationship studies - people need to be educated at an early age on how
not to be an asshole by being nice. Good on you for leading the way.
