The dominance hierarchy in action again, “and I truly believe that men believe that’s how they need to act in order to impress their friends and succeed with women.”

It seems like, from some of the comments, that a lot of men still cling to the “nice guys finish last” trope. I know you’ve already written an entire piece on that, and explored it more here, but please keep speaking to how misguided this is. Women want guys who are authentically nice, not playing a game of being nice.
