"We’ve all heard many different versions of the phrase “all the nice guys/good men are taken” and I am guilty for being someone who use to throw it around as well, but it is none-the-less one of the worst fallacies ever.
First of all, nice guys don’t exist, there’s only guys who think they are nice, and guys whose friends try to comfort them by saying that they are too nice. It could also be that sometimes we tell that to the “nice guys” that we try to let down gently.
Second of all, there is no such thing as a good man. At least not in the sense of this topic. Well, to begin with, they are all children, the only thing that separates them is the price of their toys. The ones that are taken are just men who found someone who can tolerate and deal with their specific brand of “jerk.”
Three, get off your high heels (that you can’t afford) and stop judging men for not being perfect because neither are you. Stop looking for Mr. Right and Mr. Perfect, instead, if you must look, try to find someone who compliments your brand of crazy and also, Mr. Right Now probably got more potential than you give him credit for."
