Why It Doesn’t Pay To Be A “Nice Guy”

The following video’s been making the rounds as an example of a woman being “harassed” by an embarrassment of compliments as she silently walks around New York:

While this video’s sparked lots of debate, one take-away nobody seems to’ve caught is that the steady stream of compliments and attention men directed to this woman was overwhelming. All she had to do was walk by and guys were drooling all over the place.

I can easily see how a woman who gets this kind of constant affirmation would become immune to attention from a romantically inclined “nice guy.” As such, any man running the “nice guy” routine to open a relationship with this woman would like as not get a reaction of “yeah, yawn, tell me something I don’t know, and by the way you’re boring.”

    A man needs to stand out to have a chance. Basic RP rule. Never hurts to repeat it though.
