OPP: Turn Mean To Get The GIrl
Today’s OPP needs our help…we’re just not sure WE know how to help him with this…
Yi! Can you help me understand women? I’m 26, have a great job and am fairly good looking. I’ve never been lucky in love. My friends say I’m too nice and that women like men who treat them poorly. It’s true that I’m a romantic and I treat women with respect. It would never occur to me to be anything other than caring and generous. I’ve seen many women drooling over selfish idiots who use them. That’s not me! Are my friends right? Should I develop a mean streak because it always seems nice guys finish last?
Now, you know why Slacker and Steve are worried that they, personally, won’t be able to help him. Slacker says that Steve very chivalrous but is still kind of a bad guy. But he is who he is and doesn’t pretend to be anything or anyone else so that attracts women. They both agree that changing who you are as a person isn’t going to fix the problem. Slacker points out that it’s not just Steven with this problem, though, plenty of “good guys” are all alone out there, but there are tons of women crying about being single because all the good guys are taken and ignoring the ones right in front of you. It’s totally a figure eight problem.
Do you think it’s true that “nice guys finish last”?
I don’t think that the phrase is totally true but I do think that if a guy comes off needy or too available I lose interest. I think everyone likes a chase even if it is just a little one. But then that’s when you get to be the nice guy. I wish him luck though!
