Ah, Nice Guy Syndrome, bane of men on the Internet since the first girl logged into Usenet in 1980.

^^^Not a troll.It's the "You're too shy" line that makes this applicable here.

I confess, the Muppet Rick-Roll lost me. All I'm saying is that self-proclaimed 'Nice Guys' often aren't: http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp02142004.shtmlhttp://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=nice%20guy%20syndromeI think the OP's letter reeks of the same self-satisfied pseudo-confidence that men on the internet often exhibit when they complain about how women don't want to date 'Nice Guys,' they want to date 'Jerks who treat them badly.' ( http://www.heartless-bitches.com/rants/niceguys/ng.shtml )Ultimately, it's just another pathetic excuse for sexist double-standards (Girls who care about attractiveness are 'shallow,' while Nice Guys who care about attractiveness are 'following their hearts' or 'have a type.').

I was just feeling mischievous. There was no actual significance meant.

Well, you have to think that there is truth behind those stereotypes: mammal females look for males who will produce progeny with higher chances of survival, so they will look for strong-looking, healthy-looking, aggressive and/or higher-ranked males; meanwhile males look for females that have traits that ensure progeny survival, specially during the critical moment of birth and right after: wider hips for wider birth channel, and larger mammary glands for nursing.So, both meek, weak and low ranked males and less shapely females, being excluded of the reproductory cycle (i.e. sex i.e. relationships) will rightfully feel bitter about it, and let that embitterment poison their lives till they die alone, hence not passing their bad genes to the next generation, improving the species.
