In answer to your question: yes.
BUT then a good part of the lesson in ‘Astral Plane’ and ‘Between Brothers’ is devoted to a) explicitly showing how Nice Guy attitudes suck and b) driving home the point that there are a lot of reasons why a girl might want to get closer to/be interested in/be emotionally supportive of a guy, and none of the above is the same as her being romantically interested in him.
Meh I probably already gave away too many spoilers there. I’m not good at being vague.
