Perfect "Let-Down's" From Nice Girls
Yep. This "ol' boy" has been let-down
How guys handle let-down's
A lot can be said about nice girls. I mean a whole lot. To my knowledge, this is a first for me, writing about a nice girl. And you know what? It feels kinda nice. Yes. Nice. And easy to do.
Nice girls are of course, nice as they can be. To almost everyone they meet. Guys included. Something in how their parents raised them and taught them to always keep a beaming smile on their cute faces and a geyser of hope in their pure hearts and life would work out to their advantage.
But uh, oh. One day "Mr. Cupid," that low-life, hovered above our nice girl and found her heart a worthy target. So he shot his "love arrow," into her soul and before she realized what a blundering mistake she had made in agreeing to date the son of her high school janitor, she was in too deep, heart and soul, all-in, as poker players say. What a dilemma. How will our heroine escape?
But her eager boyfriend, "Frank Fitzaroni," who loved the idea of following his dad's mop-lines and being a high school janitor after graduation, never fathomed, even in his lonliest nights alone that his nice girlfriend, "Debbie Wayright," had a trick up her sleeve. A way out of this bland relationship that had no chance to grow into anything really serious.
Poor "Frank." And those guys like him. They were never keen enough to see it coming down the tracks . . .a fast-moving locomotive named: "Perfect Let-Downs From Nice Girls."
See these following examples:
1.) "I'm not good enough for you,"stuns the young man from asking, "what did "I" do wrong?" and other pointless questions. Nice girls are lethal when they are put in pressurized situations such as breaking-up with over-zealous guys.
2.) "School and work are too much right now," this let-down not only lets the poor guy down easy, but reveals two logical truths that the poor guy will probably buy without argument.
3.) "You deserve a girl lots better than me," says an experienced nice girl who has let-down a few guys in her time. This let-down, if played right, allows the nice girl to be the "fall girl," and take the blame for the relationship with a love-starved "boy from the sticks," not working out.
4.) "Oh, 'D.W.,' we can still be friends," probably the most widely-used let-down by nice and not-so-nice girls. Although this soft let-down might ease the pain (some) that "ol D.W." may be feeling, but how can he argue with the fact that his now-ex, "Julie Swift," broke up with him because of something "he" did?
5.) "I am not in your league," says a girl shedding crocodile tears to a shocked jock who thought he had a relationship with his high school's valedictorian "in the bag." Why, "Mr. Jock," do you think they named her "valedictorian?" Look it up. That title means "really intelligent."
6.) "I don't fit into your crowd. My fault." "Bobo McCarley," "C" student and bound for a career in the grocery business as a night shift stock boy, hears at his senior prom from his girl, "Nancy Sue Pride," who knew that a long-lasting relationship with "Bobo," meant living with his parents with their two children, "Joe," and "Jim," and "Bobo's" pet bloodhound, "Sparky."
7.) "You need to see other girls and not devote "all" of your time to me," a meek and caring, "Janet Simms," home economics wizard tells her "ex," "Willard Thrump," a guy destined for a life of "job-hopping," from truck driving to short-order cook. "Janet," sensed that on her first date with "Willard," his lack of attention for her when she spilled her heart and soul to im about her dreams in life only to find him gazing past her to admire a diesel rig that was parked in her church parking lot.
8.) "I know this sound wacky, but I am allergic to you. Funny, right?"this let-down is of genius stature. A mastermind of a girl sat up many late nights and thought this one up. She could copyright it and make millions, but she had rather "share" it with other nice girls who want out of their "dead-end" relationships.
9.) "My parents and I are moving to Germany," what a monumental let-down for some simple-minded guy to understand. First he is in awe of his soon-to-be-"ex" girlfriend, then hit hits him, "then, uhhh, you won't be able to see, uhhh, me, right?" "Lumpy Sweetwater," manages to say as his "ex," "Margaret Lowenstern," hides a big urge to laugh like a horse at his slow-grasping of being let-down.
10.) "I'm going to college this fall, full-time and I won't be around, but you go out and date whatever girl you want," - - a classic let-down that has everything a nice girl wants to use to get rid of her boyfriend, "Clarence Doughroot," who wanted her to be a stay-at-home-wife and bake him brownies for when he came home from work at his dad's denture clinic. Notice the part of the let-down that gives him permission to date whomever he pleases without any spark of conscience. What guy, simpleton or Rhodes Scholar would feel bad at hearing this from his girl who has just let him down?
Coming soon . . .
"Let Down's From Nice Guys," for all you nice girls out there who have been "given their walking papers," from guys you thought were perfect.
FYI: "I" never used a let-down on ANY girl that I was blessed to date. I cared for them too much. Maybe that was why they let-me down "FIRST."
Guy, you saw it coming . . .
