26 Undeniable Truths All Overly Nice People Know To Be True

Yes, I smiled at you. No, I'm not flirting with you.

We asked the BuzzFeed Community the hardest part about being an overly nice person. Here are the sweet results.

1. People think you're being fake because they're not used to your optimism.

2. Your kindness is often mistaken for flirtatiousness, and people get mad when they're corrected.

3. You end up staying on bad dates for hours, because that's easier than being brutally honest and hurting someone's feelings.

11. But at the same time, it gets annoying when you're not smiling for two seconds and someone asks, "Is something wrong?"

13. Strangely enough, sometimes people assume that since you're so ~neutral and zen~ you must be high on something.

14. Everyone always asks you for favors, because they've unfortunately learned you can't say no.

15. Seriously. You’re always super generous, because you feel bad saying no to people — whether it be giving away food, rides, or even money.

16. And it's pretty much gotten to the point where you're expected to help out all the time, so you just volunteer before anyone asks.

17. When you DO say no to someone, you feel incredibly guilty about it.

18. To some people, your kindness is taken as a major weakness.

19. When you notice someone making a mistake — like calling you the wrong name for several months — you don't have the heart to correct them.

23. Everyone always expects you to be a pushover, which is annoying AF.

24. When everyone else is in a bad mood, you feel like you have to provide the positive energy.

26. And you wouldn't change the way you are for anyone.
