9 reasons women are turned off by “nice guys”
Because women don't actually reject men for being 'too nice'
Have you ever had a male friend who complained that women only date jerks? Who threw a fit when he was “friend zoned” by his female BFF, despite everything he’s done for her? Then you probably know a guy with Nice Guy Syndrome, a term for someone who believes that women reject him because he’s “too nice.” Nice Guys think that their chivalrous ways make them more deserving of love, so naturally, they get angry and confused when women aren’t attracted to them.
Most of the time, Nice Guys are pitiable at best, and annoying at worst. But when left unchecked, their entitlement can lead to misogyny and even murder. Just last week, 22-year-old Elliot Rodger killed 7 people and injured 13 others after vowing a “Day of Retribution” for all the women who had turned him down. Despite being “magnificent,” the perfect guy, and the ultimate gentleman, he remained a 22-year-old virgin who had never even kissed a girl. In the words of his manifesto, if Elliot couldn’t have them, he would destroy them.
Of course, not every Nice Guy is an Elliot Rodger, but if there’s one thing they have in common, it’s their misguided belief that they’re prime boyfriend material. Your lack of a girlfriend might simply be bad luck, but if you’ve ever uttered the phrase “nice guys win last,” then it’s probably for one of the following reasons.
