Nice guys finish last. Yes, you’ve heard it, but is it true? You bet it is. Nice guys will never win with the women. But why? Why is it that after the ladies continuously says that they want a sensitive man, that sensitve man will usually lose the girl? Why is he the one always left thinking, what just happened? Here’s a shocker for you. Women don’t want a sensitive guy; they want a guy who knows how to be sensitive.
See, it all stems from the proclivities of the female psyche. In the human being we relate to the world by our perspectives. Our perspective is only a filter stringing out only the information that we have programmed ourselves to look for. But when it comes to the natural God-given tendencies of both men and women, our perspectives are ingrained without our doing.
For the woman, this natural filter occurs in explaining what she wants in a guy. It’s important to understand here, that it’s not really about him but more so about her. When she speaks of what she wants in a guy she is speaking through a filter of security, a state of feeling safety. Now this is overall safety. This safety includes her entire being. From her physical, mental, and emotional (it’s common to leave out the spiritual which is most important however). But to feel safe this guy has to prove that he is trustworthy with her all.
This is where the “sensitive guy” stuff comes in. Women are emotional and they know that. When used in “reason” and I use that word loosely, it’s a beautiful thing. Its God designed. Therefore, she wants to know subconsciously, guy, can-you-be-trusted. When she comes home after all the jerks at work run her nerves into the ground can she depend on you to be caring and “sensitive?” When she watches a movie that sparks her emotions, will you be, sensitive? Sounds easy right? But guys, here is the fallacy that men make. Most guys will be and do anything to capture the woman they desire, that even means falling prey to being the nice guy. But where guys go wrong with this is that, they stop being men. Yeah that’s right. In her eyes being emotional and too sensitive makes you look soft, so security flies out the window for her. Now, you’re just a good friend! She can’t depend on you with her all.
She may say she wants a sensitive guy but she means I want a guy who can turn on the sensitivity when I need him to be sensitive and turn it off and be a man afterwards. Yep that’s it guys. That’s why the jerk usually get’s the girl, because he definitely isn’t sensitive and she’ll take someone who is more assertive than a sensitive guy any day. Subconsciously she knows what she needs, and that’s a man who she can trust won’t make her feel insecure about her feelings, but will meet her halfway. Then go back to being himself. This also leads me to say that guys also know what they want subconsciously. Men speak through a filter of respect. So when he describes his dream woman, he ultimately wants a woman who he feels will respect him.
Just as women aren’t attracted to an overly sensitive guy, men aren’t attracted to overly aggressive women. He’s not intimated by her strength, he just isn’t attracted to it. Subconsciously it’s a turn-off. Just like the guy who should learn how to turn on the sensitivity and turn it off, women should learn when to turn on the aggression and when to turn it off. I know, I know, the corporate world doesn’t respect feminine qualities. But that’s the world, not your relationship. The guy you’re with, trust me, he loves feminine qualities so embrace them ladies. And back to the guys. It’s okay to be a man. Just know that the nice guy will always finish last.
SN: God created women to be problem solvers. The nice guy wants to do everything right. So what problems does she have to solve when there is none? (This is especially bad for the guy who has no vision for the future.). What, there is a problem?! It’s the sensitive guy? Wait! She solved the problem? She dumped him!
