Perfect "Let-Down's" From Nice Girls

Updated on August 7, 2012

Yep. This "ol' boy" has been let-down

by a nice girl. He sees nothing in his future as he gazes aimlessly over the horizon.

How guys handle let-down's

"Crash and burn." The oldest metaphor used when a guy is let down by a nice girl.

"Why me?" You may be asking. The nice girl tried to tell you many times that you and her were not meant to be, and you thought she was talking about sack race partners.

Severe Depression: a sure sign that a nice girl has let you down.

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 . . .

when your nice girl who dated you out of pity stopped  listening to you on dates. Wasn't this a sign that she was letting you down easy?

      Thanks, Michaela Osiecki,

      for your in-depth critique/analysis of my hub. I agree with most of it, but you are not right in assuming that I am a "nice guy," with same said syndrome.

      I was, and still am, respectful toward females no matter the age, race, creed or color.

      And to guys, being labled "nice" is a two-edged sword. Some of the girls I dated, I could tell by their talk that I was not harsh enough and not secular enough to drink with them or other things.

      Anyway. In closing, I am NOT a murder, stalker, rapist, drug dealer, assassin, gang member, etc. I live a very obscure life. Thank God.

      Thanks for stopping by.

      Peace.

      Hey Kenneth, it sounds to me like you've got "Nice Guy Syndrome" - where you feel entitled to dates, sex, or a relationship with a girl just for being nice to her. I'm sorry, bud, but that's not how it works. Attraction is a complicated thing and every girl (or guy) will be attracted to something different and have their own standards. It's not a reflection of you that these "nice girls" won't date you, you're just not what they're looking for and there's no reason to hold that against them.

      Also, "nice guys" tend to be really pushy and overly affectionate without realizing it, and not reading the body language of their partner. This can be really scary for a woman, because we can't know if you're going to hurt us if we tell you to back off. We can't know what will offend you and so we play along, because we are LITERALLY scared for our safety. Because it's always the "nice guy" that end up murdering you when you refuse a date. Those are stats, bud.

      Thanks, Debra, but it comes from being let-down a lot when I was single. I could write many painful stories, but that would make me more depressed than I am now.

      Dear catgypsy,

      LOL, some can be "painless," if used with tact, respect and diplomacy. All of the let-down's "I" have dealt with were harsh. And not fun.

      Thanks again!

      Hello, Gypsy Rose Lee,

      Thanks for your input and you are right. Guys cannot grasp rejection, but one can, Jerry Seinfeld, who takes rejection and five minutes from that, he is fine.

      I was never that strong.

      Thanks for your comment and visit with me again.

      Great hub. All those lines have to be taken with a grain of salt. lol It's just too bad that it can hurt for awhile and leave behind confusion.However when that right girl comes along oh, yes the guy will know for sure.

      Dear Angela/sis . . ."I just want to sincerely thank you for, as you said, loving this hub, and like catgypsy, you are right. Breaking-up is not fun for either party, but hold on! I have had girls break-up with me and then laugh as they went away from me. No, I will not lower myself to using profane words here or off screen.

      Visit with me again.

      Dearest Catgypsy,

      you are so right. Breaking-up is NEVER fun and in my case, NEVER forgotten. But you have inspired me to write another hub which I will give you the credit for . . ."Painless Ways to Break-Up," and I think it will fly high. What do you think?

      Hi, bac2basics,

      Thanks, first of all, for your comment that really spoke to me. I am honest with you . . ."No, I am NOT well, emotionally or psychologically." "I get up everyday and try to deal with ALL of the lies, deception, down-right rude, mean-spirited, lie-telling, GIRLS who lead me on, then lied about "wanting" to date me.

      And the ELITE guys in my high school years who fit into the same category EXCEPT DATING, who made me believe I was their friend, just to be made of and get laughed at . . .talk about hard to bear. This is it, baby. No joke. Somedays I just want to stay in bed and rip out my phone and pretend that I was never born. Okay?

      But somehow, I keep thinking that the Bible passage, "be ye not deceived, God IS NOT mocked. Whatsoever a man (or woman) sows, that he (or she) shall also reap," will come into play and I can see these same people walk a little humbler because of their hurtful acts. Only time will tell.

      Thanks for asking.

      Hi, GlimmerTwin,

      that WAS funny, nice girls never being asked out, but hey, I DID. Asked all girls out and got turned down by 93% of them, inluding the NICE GIRLS. Oh well. Guess that God put me here for people to relieve their tension and fear. I can't think of any other reason.

      Thanks, Glimmer, for your comment.

      Breaking up, no matter how one does it -- turns out badly for one person anyway. Loved this Hub and your take on the situation. Best/Sis

      It's a sad fact that no matter what you say, breaking up is hard to do! I don't think there's a single way to do it without hurting the other person. Great hub!

      Hi Kenneth. uh oh....After reading so many of your hubs and comments I get the feeling all is not well with you., even though you made this jokey hub.I hope you are OK. People change, people move on. Sad and sometimes heart breaking as it is..telling the truth as you rightly said in a previous hub can spell disaster, so we have to cover the real truth up sometimes with let downs and little white lies that we hope wont hurt so much. Keep well Kenneth :)

      Another funny hub kenneth! Thanks for a good laugh. When I think back to my high school days I don't remember the nice girls having to let anyone down. They never got asked out. Just kidding!
