This used to be an expression. Goody Goody Two Shoes. People were put down for being a goody goody two shoes..which ment they did not do anything their parents would disaprrove of..but do people still refer to people as goody goody two shoes? One girl told her friends that I was too respectful and boring..i guess i was ignorant and did not try to cop a feel or make a pass at her..as on our one and only date..all she talked about was all the guys that tried to get a home run with her...i rmember i picked her up and their was no electricity in her house and she had to get dressed in the dark..well, we got to the dance late..as there was a storm and later in the dance a girl told my date that she had her dress on backwards..well, we live in a small village/town and it got all over town..but nothing happened as i did not do anything..i was a "wet blanket" or a "goody goody two shoes"...and this was when i was a freshman at a local college..lol..my how things have changed now....even the terms are not the same..so is there still a "goody goody two shoes" or a "wet blanket"..i was no naive..lol..but later i learned the hard way..no pun intended.

I think in this day, those that are respectful are becoming so rare, they stand out like a shining jewel in dirt. Unfortunately most teens shy away from the nice guy, but later in life when they mature, they realize that, the nice guy had it together unlike the "exciting guys." I would rather have my son be respectful and my daughter go out with the "nice guy"...

Thanks for the postive response. It sounds like your son has a very smart parent. My parents raised us kids to be responsible too. It is a shame that a lot of kids are raised today without a clue how to act with a "GOODY TWO SHOES." IF YOU remember Pat Boone ..he was a Goody Two Shoes singer and look what they got now?

I don't think they would call a person a goody goody two shoes, they would call the person a dweeb or dork.
