What women eventually figure out is that the marketing by many men is false advertising.

The nice guys know what they want, don't settle for less just b'c what they want isn't immediately in sight and don't compromise their high standard just to get a date. Bad boys on the other hand will date anything, anytime, anywhere. They're no catch at all. Been there, done that.
I agree. A person with true confidence doesn't need to pretend to be something he's not. This applies to women as well. I've met a number of women who weren't the most beautiful woman in the room and yet they radiated confidence because you could tell they weren't trying to impress the guys.

I agree. It is pretty pathetic. That's one the great things about getting older. You learn not to care so much what others think or what they'll be impressed by.

So all men are angry?

Breeding has had an effect. We are now two or mor generations into the new paradigm. "Nice" was the most successful schtick until a little after 1960. Since then, it fell our of favor for many years. Whether this trait is genetic or behavioral, its not being passed on in the same numbers as in the past.

Then you better be at least 7 out of 10 on the looks scale to have any sussess with women.

Anything less, and you must be outgoing. For many guys, this is a reall killer of their confidence.

What's your point?


If these chicks want the "bad boys" who are a-holes and jerks because they're "good-looking," why would you even worry about attracting those type of women? Are they really worth the effort to date? It's that they have issues with themselves. You shouldn't waste your time.

Exactly. Maybe they are going after the wrong women.

How does this "nice" phenomenon play out with "nice girls?" Or is that a topic for another thread?
