    Why do some guys excessively show off and talk about all the things they want to achieve, and try to paint themselves as a bad boy?

    Are they trying to protect themselves? If a guy brags like this in front of a girl is he trying to get with her?

    Sometimes I think its kinda nice for someone to talk about what they want to achieve, but if its a very long one-sided conversation it does get pretty boring.

    Maybe they just want someone who will listen...

    but do you think that it's a front if a guy makes himself out to be some kind of self-centred bad guy

    hmm, 50/50 really. May be helpful to him if he does, like a sort of confidence builder, unless he genuinely a bad person.

    Which would imply he's trying to impress the girl?

    I am badboy for sure. Badboy only matters though if you are also confident otherwise you don't get the cool factor. Maybe they are insecure men or something? Tough to say.

    Nah I meant maybe people who brag about things like breaking the law to women. Or fighting. Men often brag about fighting.

    I meant because of life values. I value practically nothing in life apart from partying, women and aesthetics. My entire life is just lifting weights, drinking and partying, and pulling 19 year olds.

    Unfortunately I suffer from inhibition though. If I had less inhibition and more confidence (instead of fairweather mega highs and mega lows) I would be exactly like Zyzz.
