“I’m Different”: So-Called “Nice Guy” Lines You Shouldn’t Fall For
We’re all looking for a guy who’s nice. But what about the man who tells you he’s a so-called “nice guy” when you meet him? This man should definitely be a catch — or so he keeps telling you. It was on his online profile, the topic of conversation on your first date, and the reason you should trust your heart to him without thinking twice about it. Or should you?
There are good guys out there, but these “nice guy” claims can be highly suspect. Trust me; there’s a reason he’s not looking so nice after all. These classic lines are designed to bypass your defense. They may sound like they’re coming from a good guy, but they could be a sign that he’s anything but.
Have you been duped by a man who was just pretending to be different than all of the rest? Share your stories in the comments so we all know what to look out for…
Just Give Me A Chance
This “nice guy” thinks you owe him a date based on one thing: He’s allegedly not a jerk. And that’s all he has to offer. He doesn’t understand (probably because he’s secretly a jerk) that for women with standards, being “nice” is the baseline, not the top.
I Don’t Care About Sex
“I want you for more than sex?” Sure. But if he’s willing to tell this whopper to fly in under your radar, be careful. He’s probably willing to bend the truth on a lot of things.
Don’t Put Me In The Friend Zone
You are not obligated to have a relationship with, or let alone sleep with someone just because they’re nice to you — especially when that person tricked you into thinking they wanted to be your friend when they really wanted something else.
You Must Like Bad Boys
This is the lie nice guys tell us when any woman won’t date them. They give you the “Nice guys finish last” spiel. But he doesn’t know your life. He’s just trying to make you feel bad about not letting him be a part of it.
I’m Not Like Those Other Guys
Just words, not action. Any man who feels the need to keep talking about how he’s not like those other guys is probably trying to cover up the fact that he’s just like those other guys. If he was really different, he wouldn’t have to keep saying it.
You’re Lucky You Found Me
Lucky that you found a guy who thinks he’s doing you a favor by dating you? That’s narcissism, not being nice.
I’m Blowing Up Your Phone. You’re Welcome
When someone calls you 32 times a day, it’s not because they really like you. It’s because they’re deeply insecure and want to be on top of where you’re at.
You Should Leave Him For Me
A nice guy who’s trying to steal someone else’s woman? Not so nice.
I Just Want To Chill
We’d like to thank the Netflix and Chill meme for poking all the holes in this “nice guy” saying once and for all.
That’s Just Real Talk
Nope. It’s just as rude as it sounds. They call it brutally honest for a reason.
I Just Really Wanted A Chance To See You
He blames his busy days for the fact that none of his “Let’s meet up” calls come before 10 p.m., and then tries to guilt trip you. But it’s highly unlikely that he’s always that busy.
I Just Want To Buy You A Drink
It’s the typical so-called “nice guy” trap. Take the drink and it will come with a shadow for the rest of the night.
I’ve Met A Lot Of Crazy Women
It’s the other reason he keeps getting overlooked: All women are crazy and a “nice guy” doesn’t stand a chance. But all of those “crazy” women have one thing in common: him. And he’ll soon find a reason to add you to that list.
You’re Too Picky
Again, we all deserve more than just nice. If he doesn’t have any real qualities that light your fire, it’s time to move on.
