Nice guy

I'm writing this primarily for my friends at a group called "What I Did Right Today"  If you like good conversation on good topics, I highly recommend you join us.I'm a nice guy.  And nice guys finish last.  We're nice in many ways or in few ways.  Some are nice to strangers.  Some to friends.  Some to family members.  Some to co-workers.  Or all.  I try to be nice to all people.  I treat others like I would like to be treated.  And maybe, some people think we are dull because we're nice.  I know some think that of me. But nice guys will be the first to tell you they're not perfect.  We have our quirks.  Let me tell some things you don't know about me.  I've come close to becoming an alcoholic 3 times in my life and maybe at one time, some thought I was.  I wasn't a nerd.  Too dumb for that.  Flunked out of college twice.  I had my wild time.  Only mine came when I was in my late 30's and early 40's.  I went to topless clubs.OOOOOOOOOOOOOOH!  Knew a lot of the dancers.OOOOOOOH.  But. I also knew the bartenders, bouncers, waitresses, managers, and owners.  Met them while I was the graveyard manager at Sambo's.  Dated a couple of dancers.  One of them a roadgirl.  And you know what?  I treated them like ladies.  In my wild days, I spent my nights off going around to all the clubs in town.  In my 40's, I dated and almost married a woman 20 years younger than me.  If you think less of me after what I've just written, that's your problem.  You probably have written me off as some kind of nutcase anyway.  But I was brought up to be a nice guy.  I've tried to change, but can't.  And because of it I have no social life.  Part of it, I know, is because I'm basically a shy person.  You can't tell it here because I hide behind my name.  You could fill a building with thousands of people and I could speak to them on any subject, but put me one on one with a woman I don't know, and I'm a clam.  It's been a problem all my life.  I'm a nice guy and I'm too old to change even if I wanted to.  I'm a nice guy, but I'm not dull.
