I think it comes from that "nice guys finish last" thingey. Guys who are nice because they WANT to be nice are winners, not losers, thus don't usually define themselves as "nice." Also, it's like I said - doormats will almost ALWAYS say they're "nice." What man wants to be lumped in with that crowd? Point is, "nice" is not a word one thinks of as "masculine" or "macho."
A man I consider to be masculine/macho who tells me that he's nice, well, pretty much got me!
Yeah, I think you got it spot on.
