Story Of My Life
The Nice Guys
This is for that time she left forty urgent messages on your
cell phone, and when you called her back, she spent three hours
painstakingly dissecting two sentences her boyfriend said to her
over dinner. Even though you thought her boyfriend was a chump
and a jerk, you assured her that it was all ok and she shouldn’t
worry about it.
This is for that time she interrupted the best killing spree
you had ever orchestrated in Halo 2 to rant about a rumour that
linked her romantically with the guy she thinks is the most repulsive
person in the world. Even though you thought it was immature and
you had nothing against the guy, you paused the game for two hours
and helped her concoct a counter-rumour to spread around the floor.
This is also for that time she didn’t have a date, so after
numerous vows that there was nothing “serious” between
the two of you, she dragged you to a party where you knew nobody.
The beer was awful and she flirted shamelessly with you, justifying
each fit of reckless teasing by announcing to everyone, “Oh,
but we are just friends!” Even though you were invited purely
as a symbolic warm body for her ego, you went anyway. This is
because you’re nice like that.

The nice guys don’t often get credit where credit is due.
I wish I could logically explain this trend, but I can’t.
From what I have observed on campus and what I have learned from
talking to friends at other schools and in the workplace, the
only conclusion I can form is that many girls are just illogical,
manipulative b**ches. Many of them claim they just want to date
a nice guy, but when presented with such a specimen, they say
irrational, confusing things such as, “Oh, he’s too
nice to date.” or “He would be a good boyfriend but
he’s not for me.” or “He already puts up with
so much from me, I couldn’t possibly ask him out!”
or the most frustrating of them all “No, it would ruin our
friendship.” Yet, they continue to lament the lack of datable
men in the world, and they expect their too-nice-to-date male
friends to sympathize and apologize for the men that are jerks.
Sorry guys, girls like that are beyond my ability to fathom. I
can’t figure out why the connection breaks down between
what they say (I want a nice guy!) and what they do (I’m
going to sleep with this complete a** now!). But one thing I can
do is say that the nice-guy-finishes-last phenomenon doesn’t
last forever. There are definitely many girls who grow out of
that train of thought and realize they should be dating the nice
guys, not taking them for granted. The tricky part is finding
those girls, and even trickier, finding the ones that are single.

So, until those girls are found, I propose a toast to all the
nice guys. You know who you are, and I know you’re sick
of hearing yourself described as ubiquitously nice. But the truth
of the matter is, the world needs your patience in the department
store, your ability to hold the doors open, your party escorting
services and your propensity to be a sucker for a pretty smile.
For all the crazy, inane, absurd things you tolerate and for all
the situations where you are the faceless, nameless hero, my accolades,
my acknowledgement, and my gratitude go out to you. You do have
credibility in this society and your well deserved vindication
