    The answer is NO and YES.

    I like to be nice and be as helpful as I possibly can be within reason.

    Be nice, be kind, be courteous, be respectful, be helpful, be friendly, but also be ready to kill anybody you meet.

    It depend on why you are nice.
    ** because you being a good Christian, no.
    ** because you are trying to "make points" yes
    ** because your are submissive, maybe
    ** because you love others and put them 'first'. no
    ** because you are freighted of others. yes

    Be nice but have some steel in you when you need it. Always worked for me.

    Yes, you can be too nice. In the business world, nice guys are perceived as less ambitious, softer, and less driven. You don't have to be a Gordon Gekko or JR Ewing, but if you don't assert yourself at the appropriate times, you will find the promotions going to those who do.

    If more people where nice and respectful in society we would have fewer problems by far!

    ONLY bad part about it. I've been takin advantage of by the same people multiple times, but after I get over it and forgive them, I always try to give them the benefit of the doubt. Sometimes people eventually figure it out I think. But only if EVERYONE was really nice, you wouldn't ever have to deal with that would ya? ;) But no, stay nice. And next time you get walked on, be stern. maybe not mean, but let em know you get what they're doin and that it won't fly.

    When you allow people to mistake your kindness for weakness, being a nice guy is a bad thing.

    ** because your are (huh)submissive, maybe
    ** because you love others and put them 'first'. no
    ** because you are freighted of others. yes What is freighted?? Does that mean it was hauled on a truck or train??.

    There it is! As soon as I read the thread title, I knew this one was going to come out.

    OP,

    Fool me once - shame on you.
    Fool me twice - shame on me.

    Polite is a better attidude. I always try to be polite, even when arguing. It takes effort, but it allows you to be assertive without being seen as a jerk. If you can learn to say "no" politely, nobody is going to take advange of you (unless you let them). It is when you just can't find a "nice" way to say it and wind up saying "yes", against your better judgement, that gets you labeled as a "nice guy/push over".

    Know your limits and stand your ground.
