A4Ever, what I consider a "nice-guy" The essence of the "nice-guy." "Why do I have to do that? Can't they do that?" - They don't take the INITIATIVE, too afraid to. "He called me a weakling, I'm hurt." - Too SENSITIVE! You should be AWARE, but not sensitive. "I don't think I am capable of that..." - Expect SUCCESS! Be CONFIDENT! Don't be pessimistic. "I do things for other people where I don't really want to do them. But I just do it anyway so people will like me more." - Do not seek approval. Do things for YOURSELF. Selfish? Hell no! You must respect yourself first, if you don't how you think others will respect you? "I avoid conflicts and altercations." - Stand up for yourself. This is derived from your self-esteem and self-respect. Value yourself in order to be valued. Being called a "pussy" will be the kiss of death in life. "I consider myself more sensitively evolved than most men." - You might as well be a girl. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! "Is he/she going to like what I say? I'm afraid." - Get over the stupid fear. Speak your mind, yet be aware of being offensive. Don't be afraid of yourself and what you say. Just be AWARE, not afraid. "I ask for permission in situations where I know I don't need it." - Supplication? Why ask? You are in charge of yourself. "My emotional well-being is dependant on someone else. I am ONLY happy when they are." - Desperation is the death to all success and respect. In summation, you don't want to be called a "nice-guy" in today's society. But for women "nice guy" is a term used by females to describe a male who is not a potential mate for attraction. But they are potential partners in marriages. Anything other than that list, would fall in the GENTLEMAN category.
