Despite what you may think, many boys are only mean to girls when they have a crush on the girl in question. Have you ever noticed that a boy can appear to be really nice when it's just you and him, but appears boisterous and tries to be masculine with he's with his friends? It's all about street cred, and it's clear that many boys don't want their mates to see them as soft, warm and gooey inside. It just isn't cool.

Of course, boys are also quite mischievous by nature. Whereas girls are made of sugar and spice and all things nice, the other sex can be icky and full of horrid things. After all, who would want to go and play football all day?

There is something that girls can do to make the boys realize that there's nothing worse than being treated like rubbish. That's right, all you need to do is go up to the boys who are being particularly mean and fight back with your own insults. Alternatively, if you're looking to achieve a slightly different effect because you like a certain boy, you could always try hard to get and show him what he's missing. Who knows: The boy might stop being so mean if he begins to realize how much he actually likes you. Deep down, many guys think that there is nothing worse than not being liked by the prettiest girls in the school, so make sure that you use this to your advantage!

Boys are mean to me a lot too, and it's annoying because you start to think nobody likes you. Well, that's what I felt anyway. But I think some boys do it because they like you.

Chances are if this guy is only mean to you he has some sort of attraction towards you.
You just have to learn to ignore it and then see if his mates say anything.
Other than that boys can be idiots at times, trust me.

Most of the time they like you, and they tease you in a mean way sometimes because they think it's cute to how girls react. It's pretty funny actually.

Boys wil try to be rude in order to gain cool points with their friends.If their friends see them being nice and polite to a girl they will think one of two things: (1) they are gay, or (2) they are tring to upstage all the other boys to win the girl. Liken girls to the apples on a tree. The rotten spoiled ones are the ones easiest to grab because they are on the ground already. Whereas the nice, ripe, juicy apples are at the top waiting to be picked. The boys are too scared to go to the top because they fear falling and getting laughed at. Does that help?

Boys are always mean to girls because boys like them but are afraid to show it.

The reason boys are mean to girls is because it means they like you so don't be all ''They hate me'' just remember its because they like you.

Boys will be sort of mean to girls and tease them because as a rule they like them. It has to do with the effect you have on them. They are vexed by you and want you to notice them. As long as they aren't  mean MEAN to you, you should take it as just the way boys are. It is their way of  showing you that they would like you as a special friend with the possibility of getting hooked up with you.

That's what I think most of the time, it's like I get anoyed when boys have less troubles than us and they get easier lives. Boys tend to be mean to girls cause they want to look all cool if front of there mates to impress them...but it really isn't cool. Men tend to say that woman are the weaker sex then really I think men are coward and get the ladies to do there dirty work. If they are annoying you then ignore them and say that they are acting like idiots, soon they will stop acting like 3 year old and start to learn about responsibility and respect for others.

This guys always teases me, calls me and idiot, plays footsie, draws on my arm or my notes, calls me names, takes my stuff and messes with my hair. However, he pats my head or my back sometimes. Whenever I say 'your annoying.' he says 'thank you'. He doesn't do that to any other girls. He's mainly, nice to other girls, but still call them names. I don't know what to do. I liked him at first, but he's getting annoying now.  I just don't get him :S

Either because they like you in a way they can't say, or because their girlfriend probably is jealous. Maybe even because they're just obnoxious?

Boys want control over everything. They try to impress you with being mean and all tough. Guys need to know that they just have to be nice and themselves for a girl to actaully (maybe) like them back.

They lack social skills because of thier ages Showing off or attempting to appear powerful and showing a total disregard for girls they believe will cause you to look at them more favorable. Boys just can't cope with feelings they don't understand so they act like idiots. Hang in it gets better

They possibly just want your attention because they may like you. It's a way of flirting.

Well, I know a guy who always trips me and pretends to be funny.. And then we have so many inside jokes and he is like my 2nd brother. I think I like him but I'm not sure. All my friends say that he likes me.. But they like him too, so I don't. And he always only picks on me. And "Flirts" with other girls but id rather be a closer friend instead of the other girls. I'm not sure why there so mean to girls. People say its because they are flirting and or like you. But when they always trip you and randomly hit you.. Is that really flirting? He hit me with a broom and he likes me? I don't know.

You know, to me it seems like they are trying to impress the girl. But really, I don't understand why they think that impresses us. I mean I guess that's just the way guys are. And we can't change that. You can't change the way a person acts or the way the person is (In most cases).

They don't know how to express their feelings toward you, so they act differently about you. They turn their crush into anger and take it out on you. Girls do act differently about crushes, i.e., we get shy and quiet around them and we also might try to tak to them or tell them.

Everyday at school the "popular" guys (and the occasional loser who thinks hes cool by doing this) in my class throw things at me, flick things at me, messes with me, and are just plain mean to me! Its ridiculous. Once I got hit in the mouth with this rubber band thing and it stung so bad and everyone including my "friend" was laughing at me. I think its funny how is someone in pain can be so hilarious!! It really ticks me off. Then on the bus they gang up on me calling me stupid and making up stuff about me. Then they high-five about it like when I had a good come back they put words in my mouth and act like I am stupid. Everyday I feel like they hate me!

I still don't understand. I've got my own problem,too. My friends say he likes me, but I think he's mean to me , because he's just a butt. Once it really starts to go over board, just tell them to knock it off, or you're going to knock him out.

WEll,  Its complicated. Some boys want to impress girls by being mean and tough, When all a woman wants is a soft, sweet man with a heart of gold who isn't a cheater and provides for his family. Hang in there. JOURNEY MAN was right on the ball

Either they think it impresses the girl, they are completely oblivious to anyone's feelings but their own, or they have external conflicts that lower their self esteem to the point where they need that feeling of control and power. If this is a general question about a single boy, either tell him not treat you like that, or tell him hou you feel when he does that. Trust me, it works

Well it all depends on whom you are interacting with. We have sensible guys and we have lousy guys. So it's not a surety that all guys are the same.
