“If you don't feel the same way about him, if you're just leading him on, you need to tell him that. I've seen too many nice guys get shafted because a girl can't get over some jerk.”
Nenia Campbell, Terrorscape

“The trick to realize that the boys who talk so much about being rejected that it seems like the’re proud of it aren’t necessarily sweeter or more sensitive than the Bababooey-spouting frat bullies who line up at clubs like SkyBar to run game on girls they want to date rape. There are plenty of nerds who fear women and aren’t sensitive, despite their marketing; they just dislike women in a new, exciting way. Timid racists aren’t sensitive because they lock their car doors when they see a black person on the street. They’re just too scared to get out of the car and shout the “N” word.

Fear can be the result of admiration, or it can be a symptom of contempt. When I see squeamish guys passing over qualified women when they’re hiring for a job, or becoming tongue tied when a girl crashes their all-boy conversation at a party, I don’t give them credit for being awestruck. They’re reacting to the intimidating female as an intruder, an alien, and somebody they can’t relate to. It’s not a compliment to be made invisible.”
Julie Klausner, I Don't Care About Your Band: Lessons Learned from Indie Rockers, Trust Funders, Pornographers, Felons, Faux-Sensitive Hipsters, and Other Guys I've Dated

“Nice guys finish first. If you don't know that, then you don't know where the finish line is.”

Rainbow Rowell
“You should try dating nice guys," her friend Ludy used to say in high school. "They're nice. I think you'd like them."
"Boring," Georgie'd said. "Pointless."
"Not pointless--nice.”
Rainbow Rowell, Landline

Dianna Hardy
“God,” she butted her head into his chest, “I'm so angry with myself.”

“What? Why?”

“Because … this is my mess I dragged you into, and you don't deserve any of it, and I feel like I'm ruining you with every single thing I say, and…” she lifted her head, eyes shimmering, “I'm a selfish, selfish bitch. Because all I can think about, is whether I'll regret it in three hours, when we walk out of here, and I never know, not even once, what it's like to be with a really nice guy.”
Dianna Hardy, Broken Lights

“But he's nice," Barby objected.

Tom Bishop smiled without humor. "Most pleasant and interesting man I ever knew was a burglar.”

“Never push a nice guy. Nice guys turn into the scariest sons of bitches when you push them too far.”
Garon Whited, Nightlord: Shadows

Miya Yamanouchi
“Be wary of a self-professed "nice guy". Anyone who is always going around saying they are "just trying to be nice" are most often, anything but nice. -If you're truly kind and loving, you don't have to "try". It comes naturally.”
Miya Yamanouchi, Embrace Your Sexual Self: A Practical Guide for Women

Sarah Weeks, Pie

Kenneth Eade
“Nice guys may finish last, but in a courtroom they are king.”
Kenneth Eade, Absolute Intolerance

“Many men understand and appreciate that seduction first makes women feel uncomfortable. What these men do instead is focus on comfort first.
What these men don't realize is that women of beauty get bombarded by these nice guys every day, and it can grow quite tiresome. While not as offensive as these seducer, the nice guy is no less a bother. There are simply too many nice guys approaching them in a day to indulge in the same old lengthy dialogue time after time. Without attraction first, simply saying, "Hi, I'm Joe. What's your name?" will smack of every nice guy before you. Why would a woman who isn't attracted to you care what your name is or bother to even remember it? Why would she divulge personal information just because you asked?”

“Just because you are a nice guy, doesn’t mean you are a good man.”
Zyanya Torres

Stephanie Perkins
