Quoted from the article for emphasis.

Quote:
The other type of too nice guy is the bastard. This is the passive aggressive prick who thinly veils his hostility with false niceness. His specialty is emotional blackmail. Do you tell women that whatever they want to do is fine with you and then pout and complain about what they choose? Do you argue all the time because you are constantly doing nice things without being asked and yet you feel that you do not get the recognition you deserve? Do you consider guilt tripping another person a recreational activity? If you answered yes to these questions, you're not really being nice out of the kindness of your heart -- you're doing it to manipulate the other person and most people will see through you like a pane of glass. ... Guys who can ask for what they want instead of resorting to emotional blackmail and crass manipulation.


I liked the very last paragraph of the article too :)

This is along the same lines, and it's funny.

Don't be fooled by the name, they aren't misandrists like I thought at first.

That was very insightful and sobering. Thank-you for sharing.

<i>You may not want to hear this my friend, but the real question here is why are you attracted to women who leave you for bad boys? </i>
Oh, so funny yet so true. Thanks for posting, I definitely have a male friend or two who should see this. :lol:
