Two Sides of the Same Coin: 'Nice Guys' and 'Bad Boys'

When it comes to the modern-day descriptions of men, there are two that are often mentioned. One is the bad boy, and the other is the nice guy. While on paper and in person these men can come across as being radically different, in many ways, they are simply two sides of the same coin. This is because these ways of behaving are adoptions and are not an authentic expression of who someone is. So a man will act in these ways in the hope that their needs and wants will be fulfilled.

Socially Acceptable

Although being a nice guy rarely leads to a man getting his needs and wants met, this is often a role that is praised in today’s world. To be nice to others is seen as a sign of being a good human being and as doing the right thing.
