This recent post on Violent Acres reminds me of conversations over the last two years with a good friend, ex-co-worker and Mac convert. At the time we were both single and discussing men and women and the whole problem with “nice guys” and how it affected us.
Being a nice guy sucks. You’re told how great you are. You’re told you’re “the type of guy that girls should be looking for”.
Bollocks to that. Girls don’t want nice guys, they never did. They want outlaw bikers (Link NSFW and more than a bit rude).
I remember a lot of “mean girls” from my school days. I don’t hold a grudge of course, to them or the bullies. I mean, we were kids. I was a geek…or a dork…or a nerd…or something. But I’m going to make sure that my daughter and son are aware of the social hierarchy there.
