In the December issue of Glamour, (Michelle Obama on the cover??! Loves!) the First Lady discusses dating. She says, "Cute's good. But cute only lasts for so long, and then it's, 'Who are you as a person?' Don't look at the bankbook or the title. Look at the heart. Look at the soul. When you're dating a man, you should always feel good. ... You shouldn't be in a relationship with somebody who doesn't make you completely happy and make you feel whole."
This is definitely something to think about. It's definitely a politically correct way of saying "don't date a douchebag". But of course, there are articles out there that try to make sense of why Hot Girls Date Douchebages.
I don't think Nice Guys have to finish last.
