Why women don't like nice guys

5 Reasons Women Don't like Nice Guys yahoo.com

It's hard for some of us to trust a Nice Guy
Not because they're not trustworthy -- in fact, it's quite the opposite. The more trustworthy a guy seems, the harder it may be for a woman to actually believe that they're as good as they seem.

Bad Boys care about themselves -- a lot -- and it makes us think they care about us
That's not a great thing in a relationship, however it means that while the Nice Guy will bide his time, waiting for the right moment to ask a girl out, the Bad Boy will swoop in and tell her what he wants -- her. Not something that lends to real relationship material but certainly makes it easier to decode what it is, exactly he wants.

Nice Guys have their stuff together. Bad Boys don't.
Women like a challenge. A fixer-upper of a partner. While a Nice Guy has his bank accounts and steady job, a Bad Boy presents a challenge and some women well, they like a challenge.

Some women are afraid of intimacy
The one thing the Bad Boy rarely does is want to become intimate. If a woman is already gun-shy about commitment, she's met her mate in the Bad Boy who has no illusions of becoming marriage or long-term relationship material.

Some women suffer low self-esteem
Women who don't feel very good about themselves may not be able to handle the Nice Guy that treats her well. The Bad Boy however, may treat her in the way she treats herself -- badly.
