There’s that old saying “nice guys finish last.” In this case, there’s probably a reason for that.
Nice guys aren’t always nice.
A recent Reddit thread popped up, allowing users to share their experiences about dealing with so-called “nice guys” and the responses ranged from humorous to downright tragic. There’s no great secret that a lot of women have to put up with men being ridiculous, misogynistic, chauvinist pigs. It’s unfortunate that a lot of these men also hide under the veil of sheep’s clothing, so to speak. The following 25 testimonies are from people who wanted to speak up about their experiences.
1. Lean on Me!: A random dude saw me walking down the stairs with crutches and offered to hold them for me. He seemed really cool and nice. He joked about how he once broke a foot, and that I’ll heal in time, etc. We get to the bottom of the stairs and he asks if we could get some coffee. I thank him but tell him I’m seeing someone. So he just drops my crutches and walks away. (Reddit user: Monastic)
2. Sweet Talker: A guy once personal messaged me saying “Hey girl, you’re so beautiful. You look like you’re really good in bed.” So I asked him how he’d feel if someone spoke to his sister like that. He immediately blew up and told me he’d kill me for talking about his family like that. Makes sense. (Reddit user: CharlieBear26)
