Naughty or Nice

As I was musing on the tube home yesterday (while I had my head stuck in the armpit of a 150kg business man) I started to wonder about why my dates had been single at all?

During my journey, I met a plethora of intelligent, fun, down to earth, good looking, relaxed, friendly guys. Could they have been an excellent in-situ example of the 'nice guy / bad guy' phenomenon? Why is it that the bad guys seem to get all the attention?

Women are generally smart individuals; so why is temkek* so common? Games are so '90s ladies and gentlemen. There just isn't time in this world to be messing about with being messed about. Let's think less like Trivial Pursuit and more like Connect Four.

I say, let's change the rules so the nice guys finish first. You know the ones. They reply to your e mails in good time. And they call when they say they will. No longer should we be sitting around waiting for the phone to ring; or jumping every time you get a text message through in case it's him. And bollocks to the three day rule**.

Get yourselves a 'nice' guy ladies. You wont ever look back.

* Temkek - Treat 'em Mean - Keep 'em keen
You can either be Mr. Nice Guy to your women or Temkek 'em. For some reason only known to the creator of women's brains, the latter works.

**Three Day Rule

A rule used by idiot guys who think that waiting three days after a date to call means that the girl will want them more, when really it just pisses them off.

'I thought he was blowing me off, but he totally three day ruled me. Classic.'
