Every woman loves dating a nice guy who will add pizzazz to the wine-n-dine experience. But let’s face it – even nice guys can sometimes get it wrong.
Here are some mistakes nice guys make.
1. Paying for Everything
While it is nice to be a gallant gentleman, hold doors open for women and make them feel like princesses, sometimes nice guys can be too gallant for their own good. While it is cute to pay for the coffee and the snacks, paying for everything can get a little too annoying for women. It only makes you look like a douche bag and tells women that you don’t trust their financial earnings enough to be able to take care of them. So unless you want to unleash her inner feminist side, let her pay for a few things now and then.
2. Trying Too Hard
The thrill of pursuing women is thoroughly enjoyable, no doubt. But devoting your entire lifetime to doing just that will make you seem like a pushover to the girl. Nice guys try too hard to be liked and forget about putting forth an assertive front. Their intent of being likeable makes them sound douche-like. Nice guys need to realize that they cannot force attraction on women. If they choose to not be too intent on being likeable, they will actually be able to make an impression on them.
3. Being Too Predictable
Nice guys often make the carnal folly of being arduously predictable. They engineer the same kind of dating environment, because they’d rather play it safe than be exciting. When it comes to dating, women seek excitement and novelty and being unable to deliver that causes nice guys to be ‘friend zoned’. Men on tight-budgets can blissfully bank on amusement park dates, coffee dates and picnics to be able to keep the atmosphere light and fun. Women do not need to be floored with lavish luxuries, something as simple as the above stated ideas can do the trick.
4. They Appear Too Fake
Truth be told, most women feel a little strange going out with nice guys because they tend to appear too nice for their own good. The lack of apparent flaws makes them seem fake. These men play their games so safely that they forget to include a little danger or excitement that women so adore. In their desire to come across as nice, they often end up being too polite. Women are perceptive enough to catch such pretentions. Knowing that you’re pretending to be nice makes them wary of dating you anymore. Rather than trying to make an impression, nice guys should work on being desirable instead, to be able to keep their partner’s attention cemented.
While nice guys are fun to date, their erratic niceness often lets their emotions slide. If they can change their game plan to include a little excitement, their dating lives can surely be more lucrative.
