Where Do Nice Guys Go Wrong? For One, They’re Too Agreeable

Thought Catalog

I’m an active dater. I like to meet new people, go on dates and see where things go. While having my clear set of goals when it comes to my dating/ love life, it does depend on the person I meet. It means that most of the time when I’m out with a guy, I plan to have a good time. I don’t really decide what I want before I actually spend some time with the person and get to know him better. So it’s really about the person for me. With that being said, over the years, I have met a fair amount of guys who turned out to be the so-called textbook Nice Guys and as far as I remember, I have rejected them all.

But they never are. Everyone wants to be the exception, no one wants to be the rule.

So I lie or I evade the question. I appear virginal while giving them what they want in our sex life. I let them delude themselves into thinking they are the only person that part of…

Why Do Men Get So Angry At Women When They Are (Nicely) Rejected?

Thought Catalog

My biggest pet peeve is when people say women are the emotional sex. It’s not true. Men are just as emotional as women (if not more). Anger is an emotion and anyone who knows a modern male knows how irrational and non-sequitur a dude’s anger can be. This is especially true if you’ve spent any amount of time dating — the phenomena of seemingly nice men erupting with anger when you don’t go along with their advances is very real and scary.

A meme Instagram account, Bye Felipe, compiles texts and chat screenshots of exactly what happens when a woman doesn’t give a man the attention he assumes he deserves. It’s super shocking to read some of the submissions — how quickly a guy can go from trying to woo you to calling you words I didn’t think normal people even used. But unfortunately, it’s also pretty ubiquitous. I…
