People who constantly emphasis that they are "a nice guy"
There's this guy that I know that constantly emphasizes that he's a nice guy. And quite frankly, he really isn't and often mock other people. I really have to wonder. What do you think of people like him? Honestly, whenever I hear someone say how nice they are and so on and so forth, I get suspicious.
You have the answers OP.
R1, what's your take on this guy? I just want another person to psychoanalyze him from the description.
I consider myself a "nice guy" in the sense that I don't harp on negativity and make mean remarks about others. Does that help?
If someone's "a nice guy", they'll prove that through their behavior and won't need to tell people they're nice.
The fact that this guy mocks people shows what an asshole he is.
I had a roommate who constantly said it was hard to make him mad, and that he's easy to get along with and he doesn't care....usually people can see right through that. If someone has to SAY it I don't believe it. Needless to say the roommate was crazy and through furniture out of the window and got arrested.
What happened through furniture?
R5 Wow, what made him through furniture out the window and what made him get arrested?
People who feel the need to tell you they are "nice"-----aren't.
People who frequently refer to their own 'niceness' often demonstrate superficially nice behavior but are resentful and/or angry and that comes out in various ways.
It's like people who like to say they don't like drama. They LOVE drama.
My experience with such individuals is that they're extremely self-involved and manipulative, and use the "I'm a nice guy" shit as an accusatory device to disguise the wreckage of their true personality and accuse others of selfishness, whereas it is they themselves who are the fuckers.

It's like the Fundies who keep proclaiming how they're following Jesus. There's one who even kneels down on a football field to show off.
I have a friend who does the opposite. When he's out of contact for a long time he'll say "Sorry, I haven't been a good friend.". He's usually looking for reassurance that it's 'alright'. I usually just don't comment at all to annoy him.
He's not mocking you, you're just paranoid OP.
He was referring to an entirely different backstabbing hosebag from suburban Philadelphia but your guilt made you take it personally.
