Synonyms of "Guy" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between the guy said... and the guy did say ?
A: "The guy said that he would do it."
^ Here, you're just telling about the guy and what he said

"The guy did say that he would do it."
^ Here, you're pointing out the fact that he actually said he would do something.


"Did that guy do what I asked him to?"
"He said he would."
^ This is a very casual response

"Did that guy do what I asked him to?"
"He did say he would."
^ It sounds like you were suspicious about him not doing what he was supposed to.
-Adding the 'did' makes it sound like you're using the sentence as proof for something.
Q: What is the difference between Why don't you think he is a nice guy? and why do you not think he is a nice guy? ?
A: Yes, in the examples you gave, those sentences have different meanings with one being a recommendation and the other just asking for information. I see the first example you gave as having the same meaning because it doesn't seem normal to recommend someone to think something about a person's personality. I'll give you one more example where the 2 sentences would have the same meaning and one example where they have different meanings and I'll try to use the verb 'think' in both examples.
Example 1 (same meaning): Why don't you think my idea is good? Why do you not think my idea is good? (both of these statements are asking for information. They're not really making a recommendation.
Example 2: Why don't you think about applying to a different university? (This sentence could be understood as giving a recommendation or just as asking for someone's opinion).
Why do you not think about applying to another university? (This question is just asking for information, but not really giving a recommendation).
Ok. I hope that helps. :)
Q: What is the difference between guy and boy ?
A: Boy= Usually a young male under 18 years old

Q: What is the difference between I'm looking to joining you guys! and I'm looking forward to joining you guys! ?
A: "I'm looking to join you guys" = "I want to join you guys"

"I'm looking forward to joining you guys" =
"I'm glad you've allowed me to join you, and I will soon"
Q: What is the difference between good guys and homies ?
A: Good guys used like it is here means allies. You usually only see this use in action movies where there are good guys (allies to the heroes) and bad guys (people helping the villians). This is just because there's not much use for it in daily life. It's not very often that I get into a gun fight and have to tell the good guys from the bad.

Homies is a very casual word that actually is used outside of movies pretty commonly. Generally it means friends.

The difference between these two depends on the context of the movie.

Q: Hey guys! I want to know the nuance of an idiom 'spread oneself too thin'.
So my question is:

Do you become to spread yourself too thin regardless of your intention?
(For example, the company you're working ask you a presentation, it's the date you made an appointment with your eye doctor, and your mother wants to visit her, etc.)

Or can you choose whether to spread yourself too thin or not?
(For example, you signed up for too many classes than you can afford, purchased a ticket for a concert, and made an appointment with your friends, etc. ----So you could choose whether to spread yourself too thin or not in this case by not signing up for too many classes, etc)
A: @JennieHeo06
Sorry but it's just that you're trying to contrast two unrelated things. Intention vs choice.
You're asking two different things.
I think you should rephrase your question if you expect just one answer.
I might know what you meant but I decided to answer directly to what you asked first.
In other words...

1. According to your first example you may say: "My company wants me to do a presentation next Monday, on the same day I have an appointment with my eye doctor and my mother wants me to visit her too... I think I'll be spreading myself too thin next Monday!"

2. In the second example, if I choose to sign up for all those classes, I buy the ticket and I make an appointment with my friends... I can also say that I'll be spreading myself too thin if I CHOOSE TO DO all these things at the same time.

The meaning of the idiom is TO TRY TO DO so many things at the same time, that you can't give enough time or attention to any of them.
So... Regardless of your INTENTION to do all those things in the first place, you may also say "you're spreading yourself too thin" if you CHOOSE to try to do all those things at the same time.
