Teaching Our Teens To Like Nice Guys
Nice guys have long lasting attractive qualities that bad boys don't.

4. Someone who is interested in what you have to say AND shows it. Discussions center around you, him, and others... not simply around his current mood. This is no small thing. Girls -- someday you will be grateful that you chose a partner who asks about your day and actually sticks around long enough to hear the answer. And, boys if you are a good listener this will pay off for you in the long run. I PROMISE.

AND

5. Attractive is someone who makes you feel good when you are in his presence. His energy brings out the best in you. You feel lighter, upbeat, and excited, as opposed to nervous, deflated, and moody.

I don't think that we are going to change attitudes in a day or even a year. I do believe, however, that it is time to begin the process.
