13 Reasons Why Nice Guys Are The Worst

Nice guys: pro or con? Here’s the case against that particular species.

Nice people are great. They bring joy and love into our lives.

Self-proclaimed “nice guys,” however, are kind of not like that at all.

1. “Nice guys” are always trying to convince you they are *such* nice people.

2. “Nice guys” apparently aren’t listening to themselves when they speak.

3. It turns out there’s no such thing as the Nice Guy Card(TM).

11. “Nice guys” sometimes evoke sympathy…
