Always seen myself as a nice guy and I've recently been reading a book on what it means to be a nice guy, the advantages and disadvantages of being a nice guy and how not to be a nice guy. Not being a nice guy doesn't mean you are bad or evil. I want to share some more things I've read with you, and I do hope you don't mind.
