The Plight of the Nice Guy

I feel terribly sorry for The Nice Guy. Really I do. There they are, pining for their women of their dreams as the latter get swept away by wild bad boys who will inevitably break their hearts into teeny-tiny pieces. The Nice Guys would open the doors for women. Mr. Bad Boy would just trudging forward […]
