Picture - The Nice Guy’s Dating Woes: Experts Say Why They Get a Bad Rap

We’ve all heard the phrase “nice guys finish last” before, but have you ever stopped to consider whether or not that sentiment is actually true? What we do know is that it’s used as an endorsement of the “bad boy” — the guy who treats his partners with a minimal amount of respect, yet still seems to get dates, no problem — and, simultaneously, as an indictment of the man who would deign to treat a potential significant other with dignity.

It can also be used almost as a humblebrag, as in, “I’m such a nice guy, women never go for me.” This, of course, is putting the impetus on other people (i.e. it’s not me, it’s them), instead of examining the real reasons you seem to have such bad luck in the dating world, which more often than not are issues of your own making.
