    "nice guys" (not mine this is brother's I found in his room)

    This is for that time she left 40 urgent messages on your cell phone,
    and when you called her back,
    she spent three hours painstakingly dissecting two sentences her boyfriend said to her over dinner.

    And even though you thought her boyfriend was a chump and a jerk,
    you assured her that it was all ok and she shouldn’t worry about it.

    This is for that time she interrupted the best killing spree you’d ever orchestrated in Halo2 to rant about
    a rumor that romantically linked her and the guy she thinks is the most repulsive person in the world.

    And even though you thought it was immature and you had nothing against the guy,
    you paused the game for two hours and helped her concoct a counter-rumor to spread around the floor.

    This is also for that time she didn’t have a date,
    so after numerous vows that there was nothing “serious” between the two of you,
    she dragged you to a party where you knew nobody,
    the beer was awful, and she flirted shamelessly with you,
    justifying each fit of reckless teasing by announcing to everyone:
    “oh, but we’re just friends!” And even though you were invited purely as a symbolic warm body for her ego,
    you went anyways.

    because you’re nice like that.

    The nice guys don’t often get credit where credit is due.
    And I wish I could logically explain this trend, but I can’t.

    From what I have observed on campus and what I have learned from talking to friends at other schools and in the workplace,
    the only conclusion I can form is that many girls are just illogical,
    manipulative b**ches. Many of them claim they just want to date a nice guy,
    but when presented with such a specimen,
    they say irrational, confusing things such as
    “oh, he’s too nice to date” or “he would be a good boyfriend but he’s not for me”
    or “he already puts up with so much from me, I couldn’t possibly ask him out!” or the most frustrating of all:
    “no, it would ruin our friendship.” Yet, they continue to lament the lack of datable men in the world,
    and they expect their too-nice-to-date male friends to sympathize and apologize for the men that are jerks. Sorry, guys,
    girls like that are beyond my ability to fathom.

    I can’t figure out why the connection breaks down between what they say
    (I want a nice guy!) and what they do (I’m going to sleep with this complete a** now!).

    But one thing I can do,
    is say that the nice-guy-finishes-last phenomenon doesn’t last forever.

    There are definitely many girls who grow out of that train of thought and realize they should be dating the nice guys,
    not taking them for granted.

    The tricky part is finding those girls,
    and even trickier,
    finding the ones that are single.

    So,
    until those girls are found,
    I propose a toast to all the nice guys.

    You know who you are,
    and I know you’re sick of hearing yourself described as ubiquitously nice.

    But the truth of the matter is,
    the world needs your patience in the department store,
    your holding open of doors,
    your party escorting services,
    your propensity to be a sucker for a pretty smile.

    For all the crazy, inane,
    absurd things you tolerate,
    for all the situations where you are the faceless,
    nameless hero,
    my accolades, my acknowledgement,
    and my gratitude go out to you.

    You do have credibility in this society,
    and your well deserved vindication is coming.

    @.@ ... wow... that's um.... very good insight to how guys like that feel... I have to be honest though, i did use that line once... the "i don't want to ruin our friendship" one... I felt terrible then about it cuz' i liked the guy... but now... i feel like a mean, heartless and uncaring person... -.- i just feel so much better now...

    It was written very well and it is very good... I like it.. does he have any other work like that??? If he does you should talk him into posting it up... we could ahve some great discussions over things like this... ^^

    your brother is good at writing poems.i really like this one.it shows the way a good friend is,but that girl is mean.i don't think i'll ever try to convince a boy to go with me to a party gest because i don't have a date.i never used none of the those phrases("oh he's to nice to date","no it would ruin our friendship")and i don't think i'll ever use them,not after i read your brothers poem.

    Unfortunitly, this poem wasn't written by your brother. Do a Google search for the first line in the poem, and you get over 600,000 results.

    This poem is the subject of Email chain letters, blog entries. It was even read aloud at my High school Prom formal dinner by the Prom Queen (Our classes Prom king was a "nice guy", as this poem states).

    I'm not issuing an infraction, but I am closing the thread.

    Oh, and my advice to you is if you are going to post someone else's work, do your research.
