Musical Tastes of a Self-Confessed

Nice Guy

Intended Audience

I expect that this document will be of interest to women interested in
Nice Guys, Nice Guys wanting to learn more about themselves and
possible musical tastes. And also anyone who wants to know more about a typical nice guy. This is the experience of a single nice guy [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nice_guy
] .

Purpose

The purpose of this article is to reveal by self-confession the history
and musical tastes of a typical ‘Nice guy‘ [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nice_guy ], myself.

I have written this document out of a desire to remove ignorance.
Excerpt from ‘Nice guy’ [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nice_guy
]

The “nice guy” construct

One difficulty in studying the “nice guy” phenomenon is due to the
ambiguity of the “nice guy” construct. Participants in studies
interpret “nice guy” to mean different things. In their qualitative
analysis
, Herold & Milhausen (1998) found that women associate
different qualities with the “nice guy” label: “Some women offered
flattering interpretations of the nice guy, characterizing him as
committed, caring, and respectful of women. Some women, however,
emphasized more negative aspects, considering the nice guy to be
boring, lacking confidence, and unattractive.”

There is also a negative phenomenon associated with the “nice girl” in
the same respect. She may be considered to be a prude, boring and
overly submissive.

The bad boys were also divided into two categories, “as either
confident, attractive, sexy, and exciting or as manipulative,
unfaithful, disrespectful of women, and interested only in sex.”
Researchers have operationalized the “nice guy” and “jerk” constructs
in different ways, some of which are outlined below (McDaniel 2005).

I agree that:
… women associate different qualities with the “nice guy” label: “Some women offered flattering interpretations of the nice guy, characterizing him as committed,
caring, and respectful of women.”

And disagree with the following statement and I believe that the following women are bitches (that’s a term that these women use to describe themselves) who dislike or hate Nice Guys [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nice_guy ] :
Some women, however, emphasized more negative aspects, considering the nice guy to be boring, lacking confidence, and unattractive.”

My above state is considered uncharacteristic of a Nice Guy [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nice_guy ].

Introduction and History

I consider myself to be a ‘Nice guy’ [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nice_guy ]. I am 49 years old and I was born in 1961 in Australia.

I consider myself to be intelligent without being super-intelligent. I am introspective and sometimes like to talk a lot. I prefer to type what I need to say on my computer so that I can fully explain my emotions.

I have collected music audio CDs since they were first invented and have a collection of about 100 or so audio CDs. Most of these have be ripped by myself on to my Linux Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 Operating System.

I dislike Microsoft because of my history of bad experiences with Microsoft working as a public servant for a very large government department.

I am unfamiliar with Microsoft Windows 7 and later versions, as it of no interest to me and too expensive.

I can make my Linux Operating System do most of what I want with Open Source
Software.

I worked there as a trainee draftsman and studied electronics at technical college (TAFE) to obtain my qualifications. I was a draftsman [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draftsman ] and I developed schizophrenia [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schizophrenia ].

Music Tastes

I have the following music in my collection of ripped audio CDs in my computer. Note that this collection has taken me 49 years to collect.

Before you ask, this is a list of MY current collection of music. If you don’t see it listed then it’s because I probably don’t own it (yet). I am not saying that if it’s
missing that it won’t appeal to nice guys, but simply that I don’t have
it or possibly don’t own it.
