    Have you ever met a guy who you liked a lot, but for some reason he tries to impress you, yet goes about it the wrong way. Like there is this guy I am getting to know and I do like him a lot, but for some reason he tries to put up this tough guy, bad boy persona, which I know is not him. I would really like for him to know that he's making a fool out of himself, and in the process turning me off. Deep down I know he's a really sweet guy, but I guess for some reason he thinks he can't be himself with me, but we haven't known each other that long, so maybe it will take some time, I hope. icon_neutral.gif

    OK, we're going to assume the guy in question is gay, is hot for you, and is going about it the wrong way. Have you said, "What're you like under the tough guy? I'd love to know him." during some wild romantic moment?
    Lol, try it out.

    Yes. This one guy thought he would make a good impression on me by being: a snob, looking down on other people, and bragging about how successful he was. It had the opposite effect. Actually this has happened a few times with guys. They would had made a better impression on me being: laid back, easy going, and kind.

    Yes He is Gay, and yes he is in to me. When I initially met him, he was this sweet and shy guy, and a mutual friend who introduced us confirmed this as well, she has known him for years and told me he is the most introverted person she knows, and can not fathom why he is acting like this around me.
