Girl told me I'm a "nice guy"

Absolut1l
Little back story here...

First off, I am a pretty "nice guy." In a good sense of the meaning. But in the dating world, it seems that term can mean one of two things. A woman calls a guy a nice guy as a sort of rejection to any romantic hopes. "You're a nice guy but..." OR The nice guy syndrome. Where a man thinks he's such a nice guy, but women don't want nice guys. So it's sort of a defense mechanism "nice guys" use to cope with rejection.

But I have come across something that seems entirely different... I met a girl on an online dating site. We went on a date, a long trip to the beach, then I crashed at her place. slept in her bed but no sex. There was lot of sexual tension, but she said she was going to be a "good girl" and hold off on that for a while. So I came back to her place the next weekend. We had a few drinks and things were tense again. I ended up sleeping with her this time. It wasn't mind-blowing, but I'm pretty sure it was good for us both. The next day she made sure to scorn me for the marks I left on here neck from kissing her. Seemed like a kind of playful way of saying she enjoyed last night.

We live about 40 minutes apart, so we text throughout the day usually. I'm very assertive and also very responsive when people talk to me. I feel like it's rude to ignore texts or ignore someone when they are saying something to you. Also, I genuinely like to listen to what she has to say. So I guess, I seem like a "nice guy" right? I mean, I imagine a lot of guys ignore texts half the day and don't seem overly interested. I guess I may seem a bit over enthusiastic, but this is what happens when I like someone.

Anyways, yesterday.. She randomly asked me "Have you ever been called a nice guy" I said "maybe a few times.. yeah I guess I think of myself as a good person" She says "It might not be a good thing to hear in the "guy world" lol but you are a nice guy" I said "thanks, I try not to be an a**hole lol" Me again "so uhh, is that a good thing" Her "Yes it's a good thing" I say "Good cause I do like you" She says "I like you too :)"

So uhh, what do you all think of that? I've never had a woman come out and literally tell me I'm a nice guy, at least without the "but... I think we should be friends" part, or something like that.

Could this be the start to... a slow, easy let down? Or am I looking waaaaay too into this? Why would she tell me outright I'm a nice guy? Could she just be being assertive and want me to know she likes that I'm the "good guy" type? I imagine most woman desire a "nice guy" but also want the attributes you typically find in not-so-nice guys. You know, nice body, good looking, confident, aggressive etc. I don't mean to toot my own horn here, but I am a confident, well built man. And apparently a nice guy too... So what is she trying to tell me here?

Thanks in advance for any input.

Thanks for all the opinions everyone. Also,


I want to emphasize the fact that there was really no "friend zone" situation with this girl. I never hesitated to engage her during our meetings. Everything seemed to go extremely smooth on both ends. Lots of talking, no awkward silence or even slightly uncomfortable moments. And I was aggressive enough to carry the intimacy we had into sex. This is why I'm kinda confused she chose to compliment me by calling me a Nice Guy.

So she has barely texted me at all since this nice guy thing.. When I text her, she responds in short answers and then doesn't really say anything else. Unless I do, then she says something else short. She seemed to want to chat every day prior to this.. I'm completely confused here. Should I be assertive and ask her what's going on, or will she think I'm being clingy and really end it? I kind of feel liek she's waiting for me to ask so she doesn't have to bring it up.. :(

So yet another update.. I asked her if I could take her out this next weekend. She responded she has to work all weekend, even Sunday. I almost went all insecure like I tend to do when I'm dating a beautiful woman and ask her if she even wants to meet at all again... But instead I offered to come chill with here and I'd cook us dinner instead. - she gets off at like 8pm. She said "I like that idea :)" So here's a lesson for guys. Always play it cool! Now to work on my clinginess...
