9. Unapologetic vs not scared of apologizing.
Apologizing and forgiving is not something a nice guy will ever do because of his hidden ego. Even the slightest thing will end up hurting him, and his ego is so big, that he has a hard time apologizing for his mistakes, and forgiving others for being imperfect.
A good man will do both, as he strongly believes in the virtues of apologizing and forgiving. He knows that it takes a strong person to do both, and that is what he exactly is.
10. Flamboyant vs strong character.
A nice guy is always full of flamboyance, and his appearance and etiquettes matter to him most. As long as he is looking good from the outside, and is the best-dressed and best-looking man wherever he goes, he is fine. He doesn’t think about anything else.
The good man is only cautious of his character, and his mind. He knows that looks will fade with age and time, but good character and a strong personality will stay forever.
11. Choosing shortcuts vs working hard.
Shortcuts are the nice guy’s best friend. He will always choose this option and avoid struggles, to get to where he wants to be. He always has a difficult time working hard, and trying to fulfill his dreams.
The good man is willing to go through any hardship because he understands the importance of hard work., and struggle. He believes that suffering and hardships build a strong character, and he never gets scared of experiencing that.
12. Untrue promises vs real promises.
A nice guy will act like Prince Charming for his lady love, promising her fairy tales which he has no idea of fulfilling. He will make her lots of promises just for the sake of making her happy temporarily, but will never fulfill them in the future.
The good man knows his limitations and will only promise things which he can fulfill. Fake promises are not for him, as he believes lying and giving false hopes end up hurting someone more than anything. He will always be honest no matter what.
13. Scared of honesty vs embracing honesty.
A nice guy will not do anything to hurt his ladylove. Yes, it might sound really good but sometimes we all need someone to tell us our flaws so that we can be better people, but he will always be superficial about most things, due to his apprehension of not being in someone’s good books.
A good man understands this and will be open about it. If he feels uncomfortable about something his partner is doing, he will directly say it, but in a sensitive manner. This way, the problem will be addressed without hurting anyone’s feelings.
14. Fake supportive vs genuinely supportive.
A nice guy will behave like a prince who will be there for his damsel in distress but when he is actually needed, he will run away. All the promises that he had once made to his partner will disappear, and he will be found nowhere.
The good man doesn’t consider his lady love as a damsel in distress, he will always be there when she needs him. No matter what happens, he will try to support his partner whenever she is in a difficult predicament, and try his best to make things better for her.
15. Mingles with people for a reason vs genuinely mingles with people.
For a nice guy, a person exists as long as they can embellish his image and benefit him. Most of the time, he will mingle with people who will satisfy his ego, and appeal to his insecurities; genuine connections are not really a part of his life.
A good man treats everyone with love and respect even if they can’t contribute to his development. He does not believe in mixing with people just for personal gains and genuinely looks for strong connections to make.
16. Lack of leadership qualities vs a strong leader.
Leadership is a quality a nice guy lacks as he is always drawn towards others’ views about him. He cares too much about what others think of him, and that is why he has a hard time being a leader and making people listen to what he has to say.
No matter what, the good man will retain control of his life, as he knows that he is the creator of his own fate. His inherent confidence naturally makes people look up to him, and listen to what he has to say. His leadership qualities are nothing short of effortless.
So, these are all the reasons why nice guys aren’t good men, and what actually sets them apart from each other.
Are you a good man reading this? Then, thank you because this world needs men like you. And if you have a good man in your life, don’t let him go. They are very rare to find but easy to keep.
