Just got out of a 3-year relationship with a bad boy. Now I'm in the midst of heavy flirting with a very nice guy, who also happens to be sexy. Yay!

I'm super happy for you - sincerely.

Where in your life are you now?

Kinda in-between, I think. Divorced, just a patch under middle age in the mathematical sense of the word. Big scheme of things, still trying to find my place in this world.

Short term - nice guys still win, cause they're gonna actually get some time & attention out of me.

Long term - nice guys always win.

Not to say that Bad Boys don't have their place. I had my Bad Boy time and it was just what I needed at the time. But - it was no more than a distraction (sounds callous, but we were both on the same page), so it wasn't crowding out any potential Nice Guys. As luck would have it, Bad Boy was transitioning out as Nice Guy entered the picture, so it worked out just fine.

And even the Bad Boy was a Nice Guy. Twas a bit of a Ms Robinson thing, we both got what we needed, and he was able to ask me for add'l dating advice later. He will be a full on Nice Guy catch for some gal.

Ideally, if you can be a Nice Guy w/a tiny Bad Boy streak, it's perfect. A bit of tribal ink from younger days, a scar that you can make up a good story about, something like that - you're in like Flint.

You salvaged a bad boy? Rock!

Hmmm.. I should have tried to capitalize on my "bayonette wound" then, eh?

PS, you fall into the Nice Guy category. Plus, being married, you fall into the "safe" category.

IE, the person that us gals can walk over to in a bar and say, "I came for some fun with my friends and now I have a weirdo that won't leave me alone, will you please pretend for the next 10 minutes that you totally dig me so he goes away?" And you'll graciously play along so the weirdo goes away, and we don't have to worry about you becoming the next weirdo in line.

On behalf of single women everywhere who have needed the Married Nice Guy for a few minutes, I thank you! :)

Heh, yeah. I'd be that guy.
That reminds me, I should be hanging out in bars more often... ;-)

(Thank you)

the only time i ever end up with bad boys is when they pretend to be nice guys and sucker me in, only to discover that they are bad...and boys.

right now in my life i am between a nice guy who turned out to be bad and who knows what. i am boyless...bad or good. and i truly man boyless...i have no mean in my life at the moment who are not family.

They're sneaky buggers those bad-boys in good-guy's clothing, eh? Nefarious rapscallions, grrrr!

You always struck me as one of the good guys, Mike, but you also remind me of that state flag that's got the snake on it. (Don't Tread On Me.)

Had I read the XX part of your post, I'd not have jumped in with my poll responses.

Don't tread on me should be added to my e-mail and online signatures, it's quite fitting.

Every time I see this bunny icon, I think of Donnie Darko.

This cute, harmless bunny-wabbit with the wrinley nose makes you think of Donnie Darko?
Okay... no more scary teevee for you! ;-)

Well, as long as Frank doesn't tell me to do things, we'll be alright. :)
