Why do men/guys like to brag?

I do not understand why is it that some men totally brag to me that they have all this money, work out, have a blah blah blah car, blah blah blah about making even more money, and also bragging about their girlfriends.
Men please explain. Why do you like to brag to women?
I really like spicy food. I mostly put Jalapenos on a lot of my food.

They most likely do it because it gives results. Many women are impressed by money, and by loud over-confident men too. Other women don't like it, but these guys figure it's okay to lose some as long as they win some too. shrug

I just think it's cool to brag about stuff but not to the extent where in a regualar conversation the guy is telling me how much he makes compared to so and so.

I am always going to think all this bragging is making up for some real or perceived shortcoming, like why does he have to say all this stuff? If it is true I would find out in good time if we hit it off, but I find it SUCH a turn off.

I never cared what a guy drives, what job or money he has/doesn't have shrug

I personally don't think that they are making up for some kind of shortcoming. I just think that they do it because they feel women are impressed by that kinda stuff....and sadly, many are.

I find it's older men that do the most bragging and that's one of the main reasons why I never date older guys.

"Oh..."
"And you?"
"I live in a shitty studio apartment with no sound-proofing at all, make about 400 euros a month and spend all my time fiddling with my computer making noise music with free programs you can download from the internet"

I'm definitely a bragger, see.

When a man is trying to get a women, it is like he is trying to sell something. In this case himself. He is trying to say "this is what I have to offer, and this is all I can do with my offer."

Money. To me this is saying "I don't have much else to offer you but what's in my wallet. I don't have much in catergory A over this guy, or catergory B over him. However I can buy your affection.

It is a cover up for a lack of personality or something else he severly lacks.

Hey now. Flowers and cards aren't bragging and they don't cost much at all. They could be handpicked wildflowers or just a note left on regular paper somewhere for you to find. If they're to make up for normally being an ass, then they're not enough, that's for sure. But if they're just an added bonus, then don't poo-poo the small romantic gestures. no no no!
I adore them.

Yeah, I think maybe they feel themselves quite a catch since by that age they may HAVE a car or house or whatever (and the shortcoming may be that they are still single and trying not to be?) - I find it scary though that it DOES impress some women eek well, in that case they deserve each other.
