My girlfriend says I'm too nice and it gets annoying
What Girls Said 33
Basically what anon said, yeah. Don't be a doormat. Don't be afraid to express your own opinions, especially if they don't match hers. Don't go out of your way to please her every single time. It's nice to be around someone who's sweet, but the "yes dear" thing gets old, and fast. Don't be afraid of being more adventurous and doing things your own way.
are you a push over? Do you agree to everything? Maybe she misses fighting because even though you're happy, it's like a sign of passion and the reconciliation is suppose to be a great part of getting closer.
or so I've heard.
If she can't accept how you are, then she shouldn't be with you.
Would she rather you be too mean or a jerk?
If she is referring to you not having a back bone , being a push over, or not standing up for yourself then I can understand what she means.
You need to be stronger, and not be anyones punk.
But if she is speaking about your interactions with other people, then I see nothing wrong with that.
Don't change yourself to please her. Maybe she sees a lack of confidence, or wants someone more "bad boy," but unless you yourself see something you want to change about your personality, why should it matter what she is saying?
Unless EVERYONE says you have a negative (like being mean or arrogant or whatever) issue somewhere, all that matters is your own opinion of yourself.
A lot of times when a girl says a guy is too nice, the problem is really that he's just stuck on being nice ALL THE TIME. The mistake most people make is assuming that the opposite of nice is "a**hole". It isn't. In a healthy relationship with a good guy, the opposite of nice is "perverted".
The ideal man is a genuinely sweet, supportive and nice guy who has a dirty mind and clues me in on it every now and then.
i have the same problem my boyfriend is way too nice to me...i have daddy issues and need someone to treat me..."bad" be mean sometimes as in make fun of her if she says something stupid and that does not make sense..tell her one of her outfits looks like sh*t...if she says she looks like crap agree with her..ignore her sometimes...dont be up her ass 24/7...start a fight...thats how I prefer things to be but she may just want you to be a d***
dont do anything. this is you and she should love and respect you for that. she doesn't value you. maybe becase she doesn't know what she wants and she's confused. don't be clingy, give each other space and do something to keep your mind busy. throught this you could figure out what you want and she could do the same.
She is just looking for a fight. Because then when you start treating her differently, she will say things like "what happened to you" "you changed" "do you even care about me" It seems as if this is a game to her. She is just looking for ways to hurt you in the end.
I know I hate it when a guy is too sweet... Chances are, she doesn't accept compliments extremely well, in that it makes her uncomfortable. Try to pull back on the compliments because they don't seem like much when overdone. Be a bit more dominant, also. It's attractive to be sweet with a dark side.
Rule of thumb for dating:
Treat the other person the same way they treat you. If she's nice to you one time, be nice to her one time. If she remembers your birthday, remember hers.
Bottom line: never give anyone too much of yourself. They have to earn it. All the extra attention you're giving her, give it to yourself instead and watch what happens.
Ask her why you are too nice and do less of it. Show it once in a while if she is unappreciative of your kindness. That is what I do and people beg for my kindness when I stop giving it to them. Oh well, some just don't know what they got...
@ How do I not be "too nice" and what should I do to work on this __Dump her. that would be just the right balance of not too nice, not too mean, not crazy.
Love changes people, it makes you want to change.
But, if she's wanting you to be less nice . . . that's kind of odd, in my opinion, unless you are being "fake" nice.
its nice that your nice ! would she prefer if you were horrible and being as ass? No . maybe you should just ask her what exactly does she mean or get her to mention it to you when you are being too nice.
You shouldn't have to be trying to change yourself to please your partner. If you being "too nice" is something you want to change, fine, but don't change for someone else. There are people who would love you just the way you are.
if you join the marines it may toughen you up a bit and she may calm down after that. you just need to ride it out and see how it goes.
Don't agree with everything she says. State your own opinion, even if a fight results. Don't put it as your goal to please her but think about yourself once in a while, don't be a doormat, stand up for yourself, be an ass sometimes, ...
But if that's not you, don't change for her because you'll play a role and you can't keep that up for the rest of your life.
I understand what she means though. I like an argument and a fight once in a while, but it has to be of the kind where you can make up, not where feelings were hurt in such a way that the relationship should end.
But if the answers here don't clarify it for you, it's best to ask her. But don't forget to state your own opinion on it as well if you don't agree with what she says.
Oh God I know this situation all too well!
This is how I felt when I was younger (I'm now 26).
Basically, I didn't really want to feel like I was in a 'proper' relationship. I wanted to feel like the guy was my best friend (with benefits). And if he let me walk all over him, I found it unattractive and saw him as more of a brother...
It just didn't do it for me!
Havign said that, this chick may just be a bitch or insecure and needs to realize she deserves a nice guy.
In my own experience though, being sickly sweet 90% of the time, is really discouraging - it makes me wonder if the guy has any self-worth? Does he not get angry/irritable/annoyed/passionate about life? I need to see that in order to feel compatability as I'm a bit of a hot-head! (Italian baby!)
Tell her to stfu and call her a f***in bitch. You know, mix it up a bit. XD Or you can tell her to get over it. I opt for number 2. XD Seriously, if you're really nice then why change? There are plenty of jerks and bitches out there, why be just another one? I'm sure she's more than likely talking about you're nice to others or come off too nice and maybe you're getting taken advantage of. Maybe it bothers her because she doesn't want someone to use you. Don't be a doormat but there is nothing wrong with being a nice guy. I'm sure she likes that you are but maybe you bend a little more for other people more than she think you should. Maybe talk to her about it and see where she is coming from.
Hope it helps =)
Be yourself! Kind of sounds like she doesn't deserve you... at least she certainly isn't appreciating you like she should.

Stop being her little *itch. Tell her no, and get upset sometimes, what's wrong with you?
Be a man. Make decisions, don't always leave it to her. Get upset once in a while. Grab her and punish her, not physically, but sexually lol.
Grow some balls. DUH. But also be nice when you have to be nice, get what I mean? But not all the time.
Treat her fairly and trade yourself fairly too. Don't change your actions to avoid a fight.
Stop doing everything for her. When she asks you to do something, say no sometimes. Don't always put her needs ahead of your own. Have your own life, your own things to do (without her) and give her the bit of drama she needs in her life.
