I’ve always had people tell me that I’m the nicest person they know. I love helping others, getting stuff for others, just making other people happy. But, I do tend to get very defensive if someone is rude to my family or friends. I will always say what I believe, but tactfully and nicely. I HATE drama. I’d consider myself to be a very nice person. What about you? 🙂 (Again, I’m snowed in and bored!)

Firecracker. I am nice, i go out of my way alot to do things for people. However, i have word vomit and sometimes i say something i thought in my head without it going through the filter. So i can be a bit of a biatch.
I’m working on it lol.

I’m passionate about what I believe in, but am nice about it. I voted for Nice/Arguments Nice/ Don’t cross my loved ones. I am a fiercely loyal person and will fight tooth-and-nail for those I love.

Same. I’m nice and have a big heart and love to help others but I also get irritated easily (particularly at work) and have trouble keeping myself and my reaction under control. I definitely have a bit of a tude problem at times, and pregnancy has only made it worse!

I’m very nice too, but with an edge at times. I’m a high school teacher so that combo works in my favor. My students like me and know I respect them, but they also know when not to cross me. Sometimes I feel over-polite in other situations, but it’s how I was raised.

I would say I’m nice enough. I always try to be kind. Sometimes people can be really stupid, though, so there’s that. I don’t have a lot of patience for stupid.

I consider myself a nice person… until you get to know me. Hahahahahahah. That sounds horrible, but I tend to air on the side of caution (and therefore being way too overly nice) with strangers, whereas my friends know me for being more argumentative. … probably way too argumentative.

I try my best to be as friendly as possible, but I’m snarky. It’s just who I am. I have a very, very, very low tolerance for stupid (although ignorant I can tolerate) and if I have predetermined that I don’t like you, there’s really not much you can do. It’s nothing personal, it’s just that I am a flawed human and I do my best to keep my flaws in check, but they very much define who I am and dictate how I handle people.
I don’t go out of my way to be rude or offend people. I have zero conscious desire to upset people, but I say what I mean and I mean what I say. Some people just don’t like what I have to say, and that’s alright. I’m not a fan of sugar coating something just so someone’s delicate snowflake feelings are spared. I definitely have a very thick skin and can bounce nearly everything off me, and I feel people have too thin of skin nowadays, so I suppose that taints how I respond to some things since I feel people should be more like me and less delicate.

I always do my best to express myself in a kind way, but if someone gets shitty with me then I will get shitty right back. You’re not likely to catch me instigating the shittiness, though. Because I’m nice. 🙂

I’m not as nice I wish I was. But I try very hard to think before I speak (and fail at that one often), try to take other people into account and be thoughtful and considerate of others.
Course if you get me on a cranky day and do something inconsiderate/stupid/makes my head hurt, I will yell at you through my car window. This may or may not have happened this morning.

I have improved in not letting people walk all over me. I used to a lot, but now I have gotten to the point in my life that I don’t walk on eggshells for anyone. If you have a problem with me that I can’t be myself, then why do I need you in my life? Lol. May not be the nicest, but I’m just done with people walking all over me.

I’m probably like you. I was a teacher for a while (went back to school now tho) – and had my associate teachers tell me I was too nice all the time. I have friends who’ve gotten annoyed bc I always try and give people the benefit of the doubt lol (I guess that’s not what they want to hear when they’re venting to me).
Even when I argue, I try and see things how other people might see them and make sure I let them know that I understand their point and see why it’s valid etc. I am most definitely a people pleaser. But I try not to be a doormat either

@lenabee: I do ocassionally speak my mind, but my goal is always to be nicer than I was the previous day.

I’m nice but assertive & can definitely stand my ground. I can be your bestest friend in the whole wide world & have actually had people tell me “You’re one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met” & “I just can’t imagine you ever getting mad.” Those people just don’t have a clue lol! I don’t let people walk on me & I have no problem saying NO. I try hard to be understanding & tolerant, regardless of someone’s belief system, preferences, etc. I believe in a live & let live mentality & I won’t force my opinions on others. That being said, I’m very honest, so if someone says “Is this dress ugly?” while I won’t say “Yes, it looks like a million people puked on it at once”, I’m not going to encourage them to wear it lol. (And if it’s my best friend who asks, I would probably go ahead & say it looked like a million people puked on it at once. Because like, we’re best friends & stuff.
