    This is so right, it’s terrifying! Wouldn’t this be considered a form of coercion?

    This comic gave me multiple “I can relate” orgasms.

    Yeah, the nice guy who’s always been waiting in the wings may be sweet and supportive, but it will never be anything really significant. The really good things in life tend to have high highs and low lows, which the Nice Guys can’t comprehend.

    It’s manipulative, that’s for sure.

    hmm – I’d found this already and think it’s a brillant, cynical portrait of an everyday lie-we-choose-to-live-with.
    What it’s not:
    – coercion
    – one-sided.
    The situation works for both genders, and in real life, when we don’t love somebody, we simply break up the relationship when we realise the fact. If we don’t, maybe it’s what we want, after all. And sometimes, maybe, a friendship is important even if there are some unreturned feelings involved.
    The tragical imagined ending with all the sighing and wistful looks requires a passive, sexist cliché woman, who can’t decide what’s good for her. But of course, having exactly this image of women, and a weird, possessive idea of love is one trait of the “nice guy” character.

    Sounds like the lyrics to a Death Cab for Cutie
