Nice Guys generally view the world in black and white terms a lot of the time. This is because it’s easier and simpler, and easy/simple is the Nice Guy’s dream life. So if a guy views himself as “nice”, then he automatically assumes that a) there is only one alternative, b) that alternative is the opposite of being nice, and therefore c) non-nice guys are jerks.
When the weary Nice Guy gets sick of the shitty life that comes from constantly trying to please others – especially women – and getting nothing in return – especially from women – he asks himself, “Should I just give up and be a jerk instead?”
He doesn’t even really understand that there are other options available. So when he gets desperate enough, he’ll do what I call a “pendulum swing”, where he swings from one extreme to the other – from Nice to Nasty.
