Admittedly I did forgo a couple nice guys in high school, however, because I was dating someone for 4 years and I for some strange reason maintained the relationship because I had convinced myself that this was it--no one else would ever want me and if I didn't hold onto this long-term, long-distance relationship I'd be alone forever (Yes, I know... I was a HUGE idiot at that age and still have a ways to go before I'm walking on water).

It doesn't help that my then best guy-friend and I are pictured on the couples page of our senior yearbook. And rather than go to prom or any other dances, he and I hung out at a diner, eating pie with friends. Wherever he is, I hope he's found someone and is happy.

Now, in argument to the article, I've met tons of "nice guys" who act like the above, but beneath that layer are complete assholes.

Exhibit A: My ex, Steve. He was oh-so-sweet, balding, and 30. He was your typical nice guy, he constantly offered to buy things for me (I lost count of how many times in the month we were dating that I picked up a CD or whatever and he'd jump forward declaring, "You like it? I'll buy it for you!!"), opened doors for me, and all that jazz.

But once you made one sarcastic remark, no matter how in-good-fun a comment was, he erupted, shouting, "What's that supposed to mean?!" and what have you.

He flipped out over everything. Whenever another guy was around, he swore I was checking him out and smiling at them, even if I seriously spent the entire time staring at the ground. If any sort of male spoke to me, he's swear they were hitting on me and I was a bitch for not telling them to fuck off.

I've never in my life asked such a stupid question as "Why aren't there any more nice guys?" That's silly. What's more what are you doing sifting through bars and clubs? Go to a comic book convention and you'll meet 30,000 eligible bachelors who'll worship the group you walk on if you'll watch Star Wars with them.
