It’s always easier to make major changes in your life if you’re not alone! No More Mr. Nice Guy is a free weekly men’s support/discussion group held in Salt Lake City, Utah. Our meetings are held every Wednesday, and last about 90 minutes. You’re welcome and invited to attend and participate, so you can find the encouragement and feedback you need.
What do I mean by “Nice Guy”? And why do we want to change that?
Nice Guys have been conditioned to believe that if they are “good” and do everything “right”, they will be loved, get their needs met, and have a smooth life. Sound too good to be true? It is. This belief is a myth, which only leaves Nice Guys feeling frustrated, lonely, and powerless.
There is nothing wrong with being nice. But the Nice Guy does it to seek approval and avoid rejection. He’s a people-pleaser. He constantly sets his own needs and wants aside, and pretends to be something he’s not, in order to make other people happy. Suppressing his authenticity does not work for long. The Nice Guy eventually blows up in rage, passive-aggressive behavior, or compulsive sexual acting out. Nice Guys do not feel that it’s safe to be exactly who they are, and therefore are secretive, manipulative, and very unhappy.
We are a group of men who want to start taking control of ourselves and our lives. We have seen that we cannot do it alone. We pledge to help, support, and encourage one another in our journey to become Real Men. We strive to:
- Stop seeking the approval of others.
- Learn effective ways to get our needs met.
- Feel more powerful and confident.
- Create the kind of intimate relationships we really want.
- Learn to express our feelings and emotions.
- Have a fulfilling and exciting sex life.
- Embrace our masculinity and have meaningful relationships with other men.
- Live up to our potential and become truly creative and productive.
- Accept ourselves just as we are.
- Live with total integrity.
If these are things you want in your life, please join us! Any adult (18+) male is welcome, regardless of relationship status, position in life, religious beliefs, or sexual orientation. We strive to make our meetings safe for all. We also do plenty of other manly activities on weekends to give you a chance to bond with our group of safe men.
