12 Reasons Why Some Women Don’t Date Nice Guys

Nice guys don’t usually need to be fixed. Bad boys usually do, so they become a project. Women think if they can “create” the perfect man, he will never leave them.
Women say they want a nice guy, yet usually end up dating bad boys. Here’s why.
1. Not real. Nice guys are too nice. No one can always be that nice unless they’re a saint. They are busy being nice instead of being real and women instinctually don’t trust that. Bad boys “keep it real.” Nice guys don’t want to upset the apple cart.

Unbelievable!!! Son Of Italian Anti-Fascist Tax Official Is A Favourite To Be Pope

Since the announcement by Pope Benedict XVI of his resignation on February 28, 2013, which about ten days from today, the church polity has continued heat up towards fierce politicking towards who becomes the next Pope.
Openly campaigning for the papacy, however, is not only taboo, but usually fatal. Most cardinals are of the belief that if someone actually wants the job, they have no idea what it’s about. But this belief does not erase the thick background politics.
On the other hand, sometimes circumstances align to thrust someone into the spotlight, creating an opportunity to either boost or diminish his electoral prospects, even if that’s not officially the purpose of what’s going on.

The 'Goldie Situation', By Eseoghene Al-Faruq Ohwojeheri

By Eseoghene Al-Faruq Ohwojeheri, Benin City
About ten years ago I lost a friend in an armed robbery incident. Obviously, the armed robbers were not satisfied with robbing. They needed to make a point by harming someone in the house and my friend's mother was their target. As they swung the axe, my friend, who was the scholar of our class in secondary school, protected his mother with his head… He died. No national award, no postmortem speech from the Governor and, of course, no celebrity burial; he was just another guy, the fact that he took a battle axe to his head for his mother was irrelevant.

How To Get Up And Move On When Your Guy Doesn’t Want To Commit

Guess what a woman often does if a man is not quite up to her standards? She actually thinks she can turn him into that type of man. Many women feel they can change a man over time. Can you believe in this day and age, there are women who still think this is possible?
Scores of women think they’ve found The One. He is Mr. Right. He has it going on. So here we can ask them, “Why are you waiting to talk to me? If you have met ‘The One,’ then you don’t need advice from me.” Then they shall start telling their stories. I listen, just hoping they’re not going to say those words I truly hate to hear women say: “But I love him. I really want to make this work.” Or, “I think he can change. He just needs someone like me in his life.” Right. Just like you need another hole in your head”.

Nigerian Men: Where Has Your Mind Set Gone? ( Hibernated )

Below is a mail I got this morning from a disillusioned female reader... 

please could you help me ask your male readers why men are so heartless? Don't they have mothers and sisters? How would they feel if someone was to mistreat them? How can a woman give you the best years of her life, and you still dump her like a piece of garbage? My younger sister dated this guy for five years here in the UK and in December 2012 he told her he was going to Nigeria to spend Christmas with his family. She wanted to go with him but he said that there was no need that he would be back in two weeks.
