Do Nice Guys Finish Last?

Here's a poll from OnSugar blog The Last Normal Girl on Earth.

It's the age old question — can you date a good man who doesn't have a whole lot of edge or will the relationship fizzle?  Do bad boys keep women interested because they are exciting, or do the women who date them have low self-esteem in order to put up with their shenanigans?  Let's spill it, bunnies!

I've dated a lot of guys who, upon being dumped by me, claimed that girls never want the "nice" guys. However, the reasons I was dumping them for usually went against what would be considered "nice". In one instance, the guy was literally stalking me, and coming to my dorm even when I told him I didn't want to hang out. So, in my opinion, genuinely nice guys never finish last. The "nice" guys who do finish last may need to reevaluate how nice they really are. Doing things just to appear nice and to reap the benefits of being a so-called nice guy is not a nice thing to do!

I like a mix of both. I tend to get bored with the nice guys with no edge. I have a strong personality and I tend to chew them up and spit them out. Sometimes I just need to be told to shut up in a nice way. :p Luckily I found a guy who is a good balance of both.

cdelaney- A lot of my friends are the same way! They say they just want a nice guy, but they always date guys who treat them like crap. I've dated the "bad boys" and its all the same. I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years and he's the nicest, funniest, most laid back person I know. Definitely better than any of those bad boys.

It is funny, my friend and I were just talking about this last night. My friend and I are blessed to have amazing and sweet husbands that have a sexy, mysterious edge. Alot of our single friends go around and around, saying they just want a nice guy, etc. But when they are dating a nice guy, they say he is "too nice." They are always lured back to someone with more of an edge, who will treat them like crap.

I never dated "bad boys," but I have dated mentally unstable boys who drove me freaking nuts!!! I like the simplicity and zen-ness of good boys!

I think it's like this: There are two kinds of nice guys- ones that always say the right thing and ones who never say the wrong thing. The ones who never say the wrong thing, well, they're boring. But the ones who say the right thing will melt my heart faster than any "bad boy"
