From a lot of what I've heard PUA experts say, being nice can a huge DLV for women and can actually set you back. The reason makes sense, it seems like you're being nice just to get something, in a submissive way, like a subordinate would be to his boss.
But this makes me curious, is it possible to be nice to a girl in a way that wouldn't be seen as kissing ass and therefore wouldn't be bad. For example, when you do something nice for your friends, it isn't seen as kissing ass or trying to get something, it just shows you to be generous. Are there similar situations when it comes to gaming a girl?
