Love: You KNOW This Story

Why do nice guys finish last? The girl ends up liking the jerk instead and blah blah blah.. its always the same thing. People have many explanations for this phenomenon.. why do YOU think it happens?

The topic of love is indeed an awkward one, from getting rejected, to awkwardness of dating life (yes, online too) , and dealing with exes.. so instead on focusing on the “why?” I’ll just .. uh, share this thing I made with you.

Share it with that one nice guy, who always finishes last.. he’ll get his turn.


To share, use the buttons right at the end of this post to Tweet it, Like it, StumbleUpon it, +1 it, Digg it, Reddit it, Tumblr it, Press it, or Email it. Your click might make a difference to a nice guy out there. Maybe.

You’ll find some more of this random stuff on my Twitter or on Awkward List’s Facebook page!

  1. Nice guys don’t always finish last, and if the ‘nice’ girls don’t realise they’re with a jerk, then their probably too dumb for the nice guy anyway 🙂

    “Why do nice guys finish last?” [Anonymousy rolls her eyes so hard, that it hurts] This is pretty much my least favorite saying ever.

    First of all, I have a problem with the “nice guy” and “nice girl” labels. I’ve met people who insisted they were “nice” and I had to disagree (heh). And the nice guy trope completely overlooks that “nice guys” go after the wrong girls too…ignoring the “nice girls.” (So, I’m wholeheartedly agreeing with what thebigfatnoodle said)

    Basically, dating sucks for EVERYONE, we all go after the wrong person at some time or another. It’s called being young and stupid and not knowing what you want in a romantic partner.

    But thank you for at least acknowledging that the nice guys (and girls!) end up ok. Nice guys become good husbands and fathers. The End.

    p.s. sorry for the rant, this is such a pet peeve of mine! 😉

    • You and thebigfatnoodle have a very good point, every time I hear the “nice guy” thing, I think of the movie “The Mask” with Jim Carrey haha.. I think he mentions it once or twice during the movie. I like what you said.. yes, nice guys become good fathers and husbands.

      Don’t you wonder why dating seemed a bit easier back in the day? People married and they lasted.. when I ask old people about how they met, they have nice simple stories. I think it’s because we’re more aware of how many people (and options) there are thanks to “better” communication. Back then who you knew who you knew and that was it.. eh, just an idea 🙂

      Thank you anonymousy!

  3. nice guys don’t finish last but for girls it’s sadly about the chase in the beginning. if it is too easy, sometimes you want the challenge. i certainly have chosen the WRONG guys and am now sticking with the nice ones. Not finishing last anymore. Awesome “thing” you shared! Love the pic of the slut in let’s call it year 2. haha.
