Michelle Williams has pretty good taste in men. The luminous actress has a 6-year-old daughter with her Brokeback Mountain co-star Heath Ledger (RIP, Heath!) and she also dated Being John Malkovich director Spike Jonze before recently starting a relationship with the unfailingly adorable Jason Segel.

Michelle is on the new cover of Flare Magazine — looking as pixie perfect as ever — and she shared some sage dating advice.

"You deserve more than just somebody who's nice to you," Michelle told Flare (via UsMagazine.com). "I think that so often these days, niceness seems like it should be enough because it seems like such a rare quality but when you get inside of it, you think, 'Hmmm … I can be pretty nice to myself.' What about these other things? Life is too short and too crappy to not try to get more of what you want."

Heck yeah! Nice is, well, nice — and better to date a nice person who isn’t that hot than a hot person who isn’t that nice — but you should be nice to yourself and hold your partner to a higher standard. Hopefully he or she can be kind but also smart, funny, driven and make your heart go pitter-patter. Nice and attractive — too much to ask?
