  • WWI, feminism, and public schooling have broken the bond between boys and their fathers.
  • The last generations of boys grew up without a healthy male model and adopted as a result a feminized version of masculinity, called the Nice Guy Syndrome.
  • Nice Guys force themselves to live according to a set of rules they learned in their childhood as a result of not getting their needs met.
  • The pattern goes like this: I have needs -> they’re not met, probably because I am bad -> I have to be good to get my needs met. Nice Guys believe that they have to be perfect to get their needs met.
  • By trying to appear perfect in the eyes of everyone else, they cut themselves from their core masculinity which prevents them from being happy and fulfilled.
  • They expect other people to fulfill their needs if they behave well, and become rageful and frustrated when they don’t.
  • To recover, Nice Guys must understand that they have to put their needs a priority, change the way they think and act, face their fears, and express themselves clearly.
