Why do some men have a constant need for attention that they have secret profiles?

  • The reason is either one of ego or the desire to cheat, or both. Some guys can't resist having their ego stroked and their sexual appeal validated and there can never be enough sources for them. It's not enough to know that one girl is into them, they have to know that multiple girls can be into them.

    Some guys will leave it at that, perhaps flirting a little but no more. Other guys will want to take it further, because no amount of validation is ever enough.

    If a guy has a secret profile on the likes of Facebook that you aren't supposed to know about, then the likelihood is that he doesn't want you to know about it because what he does there might seriously piss you off.

  • Why would they habe secret profiles if they seek attention? Wouldn't it be the other way around?

    • I'd rather say, they have secret profiles, because it's easier to talk about something anonymously (see trolls...)

    • Show All
    • secret from his wife.

    • Oh, I see. Well that's simply because there's a lot of rediculessly jelous people out there who believe their partner might cheat on them, just because he/she is talking with other people of the opposite gender. So it prevents trouble to keep an account like this secret.

  • My guess? Constant reminders that they are desired... that's my best guess

  • I have 2 profiles, one public facing, the other private facing. It's not for attention, it's for protection. I get to freely be myself on my private profile without worrying about a crazy coworker using my personal information against me.

  • Men these days are more ego driven and seem to have more narcissistic traits due to social media. The need for constant approval is likely connected to how men are treated by society. They are often not given praise unless they meet some extraordinary feat or are biologically "superior" in some way - athletic, tall, handsome..

  • I don't get what you mean. If they put it on private, isn't it the exact opposite?

  • Why do women? It's probably for the same reason.
