Why Nice Guys Shouldn’t Finish Last
Now while my friend is a natural born nice guy, there are some jerks who eventually evolve. Maybe they were an idiot in their 20’s, but now in their 30’s have come to their senses and would do anything for the right woman. So, there is still hope for some.
I can proudly say that I married a “nice gu.y. Right before we met, I was still dealing with some other a-hole and was literally pulling my hair out. I was 29 and so fed up. I was tired of the game. In fact, I had stopped playing the game at that point and was looking for someone who just liked me for me. I think when I finally realized this, my husband entered into my life. He was so excited, so giving, and completely went out of his way to show me how nice guys are so good (by the way, he hates being called a nice guy, only because of the negative connotation associated with it, I guess I don’t blame him) .
I will admit that if I had met him a few years earlier, I may have let him slip through my fingers. But it was the right time for us (timing is everything) and it was certainly meant to be. How did I know? One reason was that I could be my best self with him. I didn’t have to pretend to be someone I wasn’t and I felt comfortable being me.
Nice guys shouldn’t finish last for so many reasons. These guys are mature, sensitive, and ready to make a commitment to you. You want to be treated like a princess (cheesy, but I know women want that), well, the nice guy is going to be the one to do it. You’ll never have to second guess his feelings and you will fall madly in love with how genuine and giving he can really be.
