The “Good Guy” Syndrome

I usually don’t like writing/talking about this subject mainly because it brings up so many issues and problems and no one actually listening, just all fights. This is a major problem that a lot of girls face when they’re single. I’m not sure if being in a relationships means that I just don’t see it anymore, but I know it’s a huge problem.

Deciding to write this blog post come about when someone posted to me in a private message. The article comes from the website Distractify and I really had to share it with you.

The guy is shaming women who reject him and it backfires.

To summarise this article, a person (assuming he’s a guy here) writes an anonymous note about how ‘hard’ it is to be a good guy, opening doors and not getting thanked for it…blah, blah, blah…And the responses that come from this anon note. The reason I wanted to share it with you all was this one classic line from the backfire:

“Did Batman give up on Gotham because people weren’t thanking him for saving the city?”.

I can personally relate to this issue, I was actually shamed on Facebook because I didn’t want to date a “good guy” cause nothing says “I’m a good guy” like shaming someone because they rejected you…three times…*insert sarcasm* Being shamed publicly on Facebook completely made me rethink and made me realised how wrong I was when I saw that if I didn’t do what this guy wanted me to, he’d get his friends and they’d just humiliate me…I wasn’t happy with my choice of not dating this guy at all*end of sarcasm*

I did learn from this situation…Make a game out of it ladies (and guys if this happens to as well). What I used to do was with the last guy I was with  and when he would do the cliche “good guy things”. For example, having to make a comment on any girls picture asking “where the good guys are”…Everyone takes a shot/drink.

Guys you need ask yourself two questions, if you need to try and convince someone else you’re a “good guy” ask yourself why do you have no other qualities to offer? And, if you are SO convinced that the girl you “like” is chasing someone who you think is such a “douche” why do YOU want a girl like that? What does it say about you?

Gotham

I am OBSESSED with the new television show “Gotham” which is a new television show based on the Batman legend.

If you have not seen it already (and you need to watch it!) the long story short is that the show is based around James Gordon. The detective that teams up in pretty much every story of Batman. It’s the prequel too all the Batman story and Villains. So the show starts off with a young Bruce Wayne parents being murdered. It is literally from the beginning of Batman. So don’t expect the classic characters in the episodes from the 60’s television shows and movies.

I have been loving the television show, it explains a lot of the villains start and how they turned into who they turned into. At the moment it is focusing on two particular villains and the actors portraying these villains are perfect for the roles. Whoever was the genius behind hiring these actors must of looked high and low for these people because they look and act perfectly like the characters. Almost better than the other movies and television shows…The Penguin…Sublime!

Harley Quinn

My 30th is coming up soon and to celebrate it I will be having a Fantasy Rouge party. Pretty much people will be coming as a favourite cartoon character but putting a ‘moulin rouge’ twist on it. I have decided to put a twist on one of my favourite female characters…Harley Quinn.

Harley Quinn is a fictional character and a villain in the DC Universe and is most well known as the psychotic love interest of the “Joker”.


Harley’s first ever appearance was in the “Batman: The Animated Series” on September 11, 1992, the episode ‘Joker’s Favor’. Originally Joker was supposed to jump out of a cake as a distraction to capture and take a group of Gotham police officers hostage. However the writers and creators thought that this may seem too bizarre, even for the Joker. So sidekick “Harley Quinn” was made, although the Joker ended up jumping out of the cake himself. Harley was originally created just as a walk-on part, but soon become a popular character in her own right.


Harley Quinn became fascinated with the Joker while working as his psychiatrist after becoming intrigued by his crazy motives. Joker, knowing of Harley’s past having a mother who constantly calls her young daughter “evil, a con-man for a father and a dead beat brother. The Joker uses this information on Harley to gain her sympathy. This eventually works and dressing up as Harley Quinn, she helps the Joker escape Arkham Asylum.
