Just give out your ideas on why nice guys don't succeed in dating you?
Most Helpful Girl
I read this from a different answer and I think it hit it right on the head. So I'll try to relay it to you.
"Bad boys" possess 90% of the characteristics the girl usually looks for. Strong, confident, charismatic, lots of friends, attractive.
"Nice guys" typically possess less than this. say, 15%. They're nice, but timid, shy, tend not to be as physically attractive, (I say tend, because I've met some drop dead sexy nice guys) and they have this issue with their ego. They always complain about how girls like bad boys and that reflects poorly on them. They come off as bitter and hateful. And a lot of the nice guys out there channel their bitterness towards females, thus driving them into the hands of the "bad boys." Girls aren't going to want to date someone who says that all women are evil and mean and manipulative.
If that didn't make sense, let's compare this to cars. Say you find a really nice car that has everything you like, the color of the body, it runs nice, looks awesome, the exact make and model you've been looking for...but its interior is a different color than what you were looking for.
Now you see another car with the interior color you were looking for, but the engine is shot, the body's beat up, its paint is chipping and not the right color, it doesn't have tires, and it's not even the kind you want. Basically everything about it except the interior is bad.
Which would you choose? The nice one with the different color interior? Or the crappy one with the right interior? You'd chose the nice one with the different color interior. Girls are the same way. We'd rather get 90% of perfect and have to deal with 10% of not than get 85% of not and have to make do with 15% of perfect...
Sorry if that's shallow, but it's true.2
