An excerpt from a five paragraph long definition of a Nice Guy, written by someone whom I suspect doesn't realize he is one:
"The nice guy will eventually realize that his dependability and empathy will never be appreciated and all his friendships with females are all one-sided. This coupled with years of watching girls go for tanned, muscular jerk-offs with nice cars while he desperately hopes someone will realize that how viable he actually is will spawn and incubate the nice guy’s insecurities and he will eventually abandon his views, dumb-down his speech, take-up weight-lifting and switch majors from cancer research with a minor in theoretical physics to playground management so he can devote his time to emulating Baywatch characters and football players so that he will one day be viewed as more than a “nice guy.”
The nice guy will eventually work up the courage to ask out his attractive female friend but will invariably be turned down because she’s so self-centered that she’d never actually had a smidgeon of compassion for the nice guy’s feelings or even realized that he’s interested in girls."
But, to shorten things up, Nice Guys are notorious for targeting women who either are already in relationships or are simply uninterested in being in a relationship with them, then misrepresenting their intentions as platonic while being under the impression that they deserve sex/relationships because they're such nice guys. If this doesn't happen, they conclude that this is because women are shallow and/or stupid and like to be mistreated (because they're such a nice guy).
This is, of course, different from merely being a nice guy.
Regarding the definition: Wow, genuine irony! That's hard to find these days.
