Last week, this photo of a flyer that detailed the ways in which women don't appreciate "good guys" went viral.
Twitter user Matt Collins said he spotted the creepy flyer – written anonymously – taped up with black duct tape around his hometown.
The note – which originally went viral on Tumblr in January – reads:
I get it.
You don't want a pleasant evening chat.
You don't want a gentleman to walk you to your car.
You don't want a friendly dude to help you carry your groceries... or hold open the door... or crush the life out of other men that would do you harm.
Fine - fear the good guys... I guess we'll have to just suffer through watching you get broken over and over by the scum you think you love.
But I want you to know – it's not easy and it hurts to see you fall.
Give the good guys a chance to help you be less afraid of the world."
Many women said the message in the flyer was exactly why they're terrified of men who try to convince them they're just "nice guys".
Others likened the note's creepy message to the ramblings of a serial killer.
So we're here to help men figure out if they're a good guy who's just misunderstood or, in fact, probably a serial killer.
You like being a gentleman by walking ladies to their carsYou wish women would sometimes just want a pleasant evening chatYou consider yourself a friendly dude!You want to help carry women’s groceries when they’re strugglingYou open the door for women when their fragile female hands are unable toYou would crush the life out of any man who may cause harm to a woman who you likedYou have used the phrase “crush the life out of someone"You suspect that women are fearful of nice guysYou find it difficult to understand why some women want to see men in painYou would never break a woman’s heart over and over againIt hurts you when you see women fall for people who aren’t nice like you :(You just wish you could teach women how to be less afraid of the worldAt times, you consider typing up your feelings about women and printing it out as a reminder of the pain you often feelYou think about sharing your feelings about women on printed flyers and posting them around your townYou think using black duct tape to tape up flyers that detail your frustration with women would really draw attention to how sane your opinions truly areIn fact, you think women always go for scum – you know, the type who would never go into intricate detail about why other men are worse than youThe men who don’t even *own* a roll of black duct tape for nice-guy emergencies like theseThe men who wouldn't sit there after posting up one of those flyers in your hometown, patiently waiting for a woman to walk by, stop, read it, and say: “Do you know what, this sign has really moved me. Maybe I should go for a good guy after all."
Are You A "Good Guy" Or Are You A Serial Killer?
You consider yourself a nice guy, and you just wish that women would take the time to listen to you explain why you're so nice!!
You get upset when women don't acknowledge your feelings, and sometimes it pushes you to the edge. But it's not your fault, women just need to give you a chance!
