dont constantly harp on about how nice they are, or have goes at people when theyre not being "nice"
the type of people that will offer to trade places with u if u look uncomfortable. Not someone who buys u a pint to get u more drunk!
just having enough spare money to buy people drinks doesnt make you nice, especially if you have ulterior motives.
i love proper nice people - people who are good listeners and people who make small sacrifices for others.
but I'll bet St Peter didn't see that, eh (fucker has it in for me, I know it!)
pretty much describes me. I'm great.
isn't all that pleasant either.
I used to think people could employ their "assertive training" courses *and* use common courtesy but now... now I think I'd be happy if they could just use common courtesy.
it's better when it's just how they are, rather than a self-applied label. "Fuck you, i'm nice".
Like Shabnam in Big Brother "I'm a fun girl! I'm fun! I'm a fun fun girl!"
When in actual fact she was just a total dick.
are those that are taken advantage of by everyone, except other nice people.
Sad but true.
for some other persons gains.
I know this only too well.
Yeah - but perhaps it's time that those Team Nice members reclaimed a bit of strength for themselves and stopped being fucked over.
But who goes on about how good they are, anyhow? Frightfully insecure people and well, in general, *dicks*...
Sometimes REALLY nice people bore the hell out of me.. it's like, 'Are you for REAL?'
So you can't win. Nope.
who are nice. doesnt mean they have to get fucked over, but people who give everyone a fair chance to prove that theyre worth being nice to
although i do think people take advantage of nice people too
but a lot of real nice people bore the hell out of me.
there's a nice medium between being completely selfless to the point of having nothing to say for yourself, and just mindlessly agreeing with you so that you like them more and being an absolute selfish dick.
This kind of Eastenders-esque morality that goes with it, where things are either Good and Nice or Bang Out Of Order and Bad. Over simplifying every problem to the point of meaninglessness while still attempting to hold the moral high ground. It's just laying simple minded, arrogant judgements on people, except disguised as moral fibre.
i hate it when people make arrogant judgment about me.
roast chicken and gravy sandwiches in a giant soft bap with stuffing and salt and pepper.
Pretty goddamn nice.
and that would be amazing just now.
but seriously, how can anyone define what being 'nice' is? it's stamped on biscuits.
really cheap white bread
YAWN, but those who have a good balance and the best, and i would like to meet more please thankyou.
I'm just not big on suffering fools gladly.
pm me for mp3s
I'm nice but boring. well, i think i am.
i've heard people say I'm nice. but never heard anyone say i was boring. but, then, they'd probably say that behind my back.
i have a house there, so i'm classing you as NICE (Y)
JAG FOR MY MUM
I have to pay to stay there though :(
ps PeeVee said you might have been at the same goodbooks gig as me! did you go in the end?
although i didn't do anything exciting instead. I might see when theres a good gig on next and come up
more people off of here should come to edinburgh. it's lovely.
should get there train tickets booked too *cough*dalkin*cough*
WHY DO YOU DO THIS?
i dont know. i think it's some kind of mis-placed idea that self-deprecation is cute. and that it's better to point out your flaws before other people notice.
(i actually dont think im boring at all. but people always say im "nice", so i'm trying to investigate the other side of the coin...)
isn't that cool, is it? Needs to be genuine, je pense.
anyway, but if someone is to do it, i'd rather, like you said, they weren't concious of the fact they were, for the sympathy/attention/reassurance/whatevs
it's probably a good thing to be, but i just couldnt ever quite manage it. I mean, i'd love to be able to be self-depractingly charming, but just dont think i could pull it off.
And I do find it terribly embarrassing talking about myself anyway...
you noticed :)
