It's no surprise that a lot of guys aren't the greatest communicators. As a result, guys often feel more comfortable communicating their unconscious feelings with their actions, rather than with words. Your mom's advice was right; when a guy is into you he will make fun and tease you. It obviously seems counter-intuitive, but when a guy wants to make an impression he will subconsciously feel the need to make fun and tease you. A sure sign of a guy who's trying to impress is a sudden lack of maturity. This can often take form in light and gentle teasing about your little quirks and personality. Don't take it to heart and don't be offended, this is nothing but a good sign. Personally, it's how I relate to people, girls can also tease when they like someone.
Showing off is obviously totally acceptable when you're a kid because you don't know any better. When we get a bit older though, we come to realise that this shameless showboating is kind of unacceptable. Saying that, there's always one person at a party who has to top your story with a more ridiculous one of their own. This is the sort of d-bag who continues to be Billy Brag Balls despite being old enough to know better. This is the sort of d-bag who'll show off his attractive girlfriend like they're arm candy. Medical Daily reports there's actually a scientific reason behind this blatant braggery, as published in a recent study from Florida State University. Published in Evolutionary Psychological Science , the research found straight men can see women as a means of boosting their social status in the same way having a fancy car or Rolex does. There's a signalling theory that claims the only reason humans ever do anything, is to assert their status and value to others. This is a classic example of that theory. By showing other men what a babe of a girlfriend they have, they're hoping other men will be attracted to her and therefore see him as The Don.
We, humans, have come a long way since the bat-her-on-the-head-and-drag-her-by-the-hair caveman courtship rituals. Traditional courtship is no longer on the agenda. The days when a man picks up a woman and woos her by offering her material gifts and promises to love her till death do they part are gone. Most guys believe that bragging is the magnetic force through which they can attract the girls. Showing off your abs or recklessly spending money on designer clothing and fancy restaurants are, of course, effective moves, but not all girls fall for this. Truth is women ARE attracted to money and abs, but even a bigger truth is that they are just NOT attracted to men who brag about them. Yes, some find braggadacious suitors fun, but most women would rather go for the come-as-you-are type of guys. We hope the following 15 entries will work as an eye-opener for those guys who think that bragging about their manhood or about how much their Italian leather shoes cost will get them laid for sure.
We all know people in our social group who like to show off. On the surface, they may seem cool, superior and admirable because of what they possess. But the reality is totally different. In most cases, those who show off are feeling insecure inside.
