|Subject: Who is the "The Dogged Nice Man"? Thu Feb 21, 2013 5:32 pm|| |
Music for the Article
A nice man is madly in love with a Woman. The Woman doesn't seem too interested, so Man keeps trying, hoping that she will change her mind.
Dispite the Terms I Use Throught the Article I will note that this character can also be a woman
If "Ed" and "Susie" are strangers or distant acquaintances when he falls for her, after the first confession that was turned down, he will show his affection in more and more spectacular ways to prove his serious intentions. Sometimes, the people around them will expect that Ed will eventually get together with Susie. Once Ed's displays of affection convince Susie to change her mind about him and give him a chance, the two will be portrayed as a normal couple.
If "Ed" and "Susie" are either long time friends, or strangers who just got into a Just Friends relationship, Ed will take a more low-key route. Ed will likely begin by saying that he has his hopes for a more serious relationship, and he hopes Susie will eventually feel the same. He's content to be Platonic Life Partners until that time comes. From here, he may remind her of his unrequited love every time he sees her, or he may never mention it again. Susie might refuse the Relationship Upgrade because she doesn't want to ruin this friendship, or else believe that Ed just has a schoolboy crush he'll get over. If Susie is in a relationship, Ed might try to accept it for Susie's sake.
In some recent works, a more cynical take on this sutiation might be used, to point out some ways this type of thinking could backfire. Type 1 might irritate the object of their affection by treating them like a video game sidequest, where more gifts and displays of affection will equal more attraction. It can also have implications of a Stalker with a Crush situation, if Susie truly dislikes or fears Ed. In Type 2 Ed tragically mistakens for not recognizing that Susie still only feels like they're like brother and sister and reacts with extreme disgust to romantic gestures.
However, In traditional straight examples, as long as Ed is an honestly nice guy, or at least a decent guy, both of these two attitudes are usually expected to result in success. Susie will always realize over time, that she really happens to love him back.
In some cases person that they're trying to impress realize that they love them first and openely admit that they like them before they can impress them

I like the music you used for this article-very appropriate
The way that you broke down the scenerio for a formula and how it may shift.
The shift was good and showed each possible outcome.
I like the nice guy-in the end he does find someone who appreicates him for him:)
