what does it mean when men BRAG about themselves and their accomplishments?
I know someone in their mid forties, who is a very nice guy, but he likes to tell everyone what he's done and accomplished, and he often adds 'thanks to the Lord' when he talks.
He doesn't always look directly into the eyes, look shifts often.

He's letting others know he's where he is from faith and hard work.

The eyes shifting isn't much, people tend to read too much into that. I rarely look people in the eyes, they're too telling about the person and I choose not to know some things.

i know lots of people like this, male and female, from all walks of life. what they make, know, laid, been, etc. they all have DEEP insecurity, and are always trying to erase it. it never works AFAIK. it just keeps manifesting day to day. it's always a wall between them and the world. be a friend and listen a little. most people won't. there's a human under there.

Yeah, I would say he's probably insecure deep down. Secure people do not need to brag to everyone about their accomplishments and toot their horn.

Re: what does it mean when men BRAG about themselves and their accomplishments?
just to add...
most of his life he was considered a 'failure' by his most of his family...
He's been trying to make strides, and does have some accomplishments now, but I wonder if that's why he is bragging (because of the failure thing)

I've found that a person who has to brag about all he has done really hasn't done much, just trying to feel like they have.
It's only life, you'll never get out alive.
I have a lot to accomplish, and not much time to accomplish it.

that's what it feels like when I hear him brag.

He is a Christian, and if you ever read bible, it talks about not staning in the corners of the street and tell everyone what great things he/she is doing....
well, he doesn't seem to be following that advice very well...

Does he drive a huge gas-guzzling SUV? He's out to prove he's a 'real' man. Drop him, as a friend, a lover, or a husband. Bad news

It means that no-one likes him enough to tell him that he really comes off as a crashing bore.

Yes, he's always been like that.
If you ask him information about something, he insists that he'll tell you the whole story, not just an certain part.
He loves to tell the stame story over and over to people never gets tired of it. He tries to find different angles to the stories to make them sound more interesting (perfecting and polishing them). (i used to be like that in my early 20s)....
Although most people really like his character (laid back), I end up hearing the same things 100 times. Sometimes he doesn't see clues that some people don't want to hear what he has to say.

you need to build him up more
ask his opinion
defer to his wisdom
the more you admire him
the less he'll need to brag

a man who BRAGS is someone who honors his masculinity.

Have you seen a TV comeday 'OFFICE'??
Well, he reminds me of the 'boss' from that office.
He thinks everything he says is very significant, and everyone needs to know it
