Yet another young female was murdered due to her involvement with a boyfriend of ill repute. What's the deal ladies? This question has been gnawing at the craw of "nice guys" since time immemorial. I hate to belabor an issue but as time moves forward, the risks are much greater when a woman decides to date (or marry) a "bad boy." The story that prompted this entry occurred several weeks ago, when a 26 year old female, Wesleyan graduate(also a Conde Nast employee) was murdered execution style in a robbery attempt in Crown Heights, N.Y. The story gets more grotesque when it is reported that her boyfriend of a year, allegedly was a small time pot dealer who sold drugs out of their apartment while she went to her corporate job during the day. There were no indications that the boyfriend was involved as both were tied up, however the young lady was the one that ended up getting killed. But is this a case of the "company you keep?"
Both the Oprah and Larry King shows highlighted another case, whereby this young lady in question, broke up with her ex-convict boyfriend and of course, later reconciles with this person. At some point after this reconciliation, in an unexplainable fit of rage, this young man kills his girlfriend's mother (in front of her) and subsequently shoots his paramour in the face. The young lady miraculously survived. The catch is....for all intents and purposes she has no face! A once attractive young woman is forever maimed. As I stated earlier, the stakes are higher. There are so many dynamics as to why a woman makes these horrific decisions when choosing from a dating pool. I do know that the adage, "nice guys finish last," exists for a reason. What perplexes me is that many of these women will claim that that they are not attracted to nice guys. What also strikes me as a weird phenomenon is that when questioned, these selfsame females could not provide a sufficient definition of a nice guy. The quick answer would be one that is not going to get you killed or maimed. This has the potential to be a two-part entry....I will give my theories as to why this problem exists as well as what can be done to help the nice guy finish first for a change.
