    Lol, that's what 12 year old pre-teens (for those who felt offended) do, trying to act all cool in front of their guy friends to come off as some sort of careless person.

    Once they get rid of that immaturity, that's no longer the case. A real person is going to have the same behavior all the time.

    He's nice and kind around you but acts so rude when he's around his friends.

    Giiiiirl, only paying attention to you when it's just the two of you and then not showing affection when his boys come along is just messed up. :rolleyes:

    As people mature they learn to adapt their behaviour depending on social context which, for example, children cannot do. A man will act less romantic and more distant around his male friends (his competitors) towards a woman because women tend to prioritise masculinity as an attractive characteristic of their sexual partners. Whether masculinity ought to be defined as aloofness is another question, but this at least answers your question.

    I only remember teenage boys doing this tbh, especially in school/college. Most of the time it's to impress their friends, they'll learn someday.
