Memories

The places where moments reside

A must read for all the "nice guys"(n gals if they want)......its once in a lifetime.


This is the most nice n a bit emotional matter I have it with me for the past 6 years with me which was sent to me by my really special one….although it is a bit long by posting standards but I can GUARANTEE that the time you spend while reading this will all be worth it…I have typed it exactly as it appeared in the printout.it has taken me a long time to write so that it can reach you all……you will never ever find it again on the net anywhere….it is mainly and specially for all the nice guys who remain just friends to girls, but even if girls read it then maybe it can help them find their true lovers in their “we`re just friends” mate…as this is originally from America you can be hurt by some words or anything so keep this in mind that it has not been written keeping the Indians in mind but majority of you will relate urself with it, just like the 3 friends of dil chahta hai…….my apologies for any hard feelings / hurting the feelings of any individual……a must read in a lifetime


Tribute to Nice Guys 
Ode to the Nice guys

This rant was written for the Wharton Undergraduate Journal


This is a tribute to the nice guys. The nice guys that finish last,that never become more than friends, that endure hours of whining and *****ing about what asshole guys are, while disproving the very point. This is dedicated to those guys who always provide a shoulder to lean on but restrain themselves to tentative hugs,those gusy who hold open doors and give reassuring pats on the back and sit back patiently outside the changing room at departmental stores. This is in honour of the guys that oblingly raeiterate how cute/ smart/funny/sexy their female friends are at the appropriate moment,because they know most girls need that litany of support. This is in honor of the guys who respect a girl`s every facet, from her privacy to her theology to her clothing style. 

This is for the guys who escort their drunk, bewildered female friends back from parties n never take advantage once they`re at her door, for the guys who accompany girls to bars as buffers against the rest of the creepy male population, for the guys who know a girl is fishing for compliments but give them out anyway, for the guys always play by the rules in a game where rules favor cheaters, for the guys who are accredited as boyfriend material but somehow don`t end up being boyfriends, for all the nice guys who are overlooked, underestimated and unappreciated, for all the nice guys who are manipulated,misled and unjustly abandoned, this is for you. 

This is for that time she left 40 urgent messages on your cell,and when you called back, she spent 3 hours painstakingly dissecting 2 sentences her boyfriend said to her over dinner. And even though you thought her boyfriend was a chump and a jerk, you assured her it was all ok and she shouldn`t worry about it. This is for that time she interrupted the best killing spree you`d ever orchestrated at ur workplace to rant a rumor that romantically linked her and the guy she thinks is the most repulsive person in the world. And even though you thought it was immature and you had nothing against the guy, you paused the game for 2 hrs. and helped her concut a counter-rumor to spread around the floor. This is also for that time she didn`t have a date, so after numerous vows that there was nothing “serious” between the two of you,she dragged you to a party where you knew nobody, the beer was awful, and she flirted shamelessly with you, justifying each fit of reckless leasing by announcing to everyone: “oh, but we`re just friends!”. And even though you were invited purely as a symbolic warm body for her ego, you went anyways. Because you`re nice like that. 

The nice guys don`t often get credit where credit is due. From what I have observed on campus and what I have learned from talking to friends at other schools and in the workplace, the only conclusion I can form is that many girls are just illogical, manipulative bi**hes. Many of them claim they just want to date a nice guy, but when presented with such a specimen, they say irrational, confusing things such as “oh,he`s too nice to date” or “he would be a good boyfriend but not for me” or “he already puts up so much from me, I couln`t possibly ask him out!” or the most frustating of all: “no, it would ruin our friendship”. Yet , they continue to lament the lack of datable men in the world, and they expect their too-nice-to-date male friends to sympathise or apologise for the men that are jerks. Sorry, guys, girls like that are beyond my ability to fathom. But one thing I can do , is say that the nice-guy-finishes-last phenomena doesn`t last forever. There are definitely many girls who grow out of that train of thought and realize they should be dating the nice guys, not taking them for granted. The tricky part is finding those girls, and even trickier, finding the ones that are single. 

So, until those girls are found, I propose a toast to all the nice guys.You know who you are , and I know you`re sick of hearing yourself describes as ubiquitously nice. But the truth of the matter is,the world needs your patience in the departmental store, your holding open of doors, your party escorting services, your propensity to be a s***er for a pretty smile. For all the crazy, inane, absurd things you tolerate, for all the situations where you are the faceless, nameless hero, my accolades, my aknowledgement, and my gratitude go out to you. You do have credibility in this society, and your well deserved vindication is coming.
