Do guys think about the things they do and how it would affect a girl they are with or really rocking with for the time being? Do they even care if it hurts them and if so, why don't they do something about it?

Men and women are VERY different, and we have different priorities and perspectives. Some things that I bet, deep down in your mind, you are SURE that guys MUST feel just like you do about - they actually don't. You've only ever been a female, with a female's perspective, so it's hard for you to understand a male's perspective (and it's no easier for guys to understand a girl's perspective either!).
But to answer your question: mostly NO, they don't realize it. Most guys probably can't grasp the depth of the feelings that girls often have, or the complexity of those feelings. Guys' feelings are generally simple, and can be expressed using single, ogre-like words: hungry, sleepy, horny, bored, angry, happy. Women need PARAGRAPHS (at least) to explain their feelings in all their many layers, and guys just don't understand - it's too complicated for us and we lose interest.
That doesn't make us bad or good - just VERY DIFFERENT.
This was NOT an easy set of ideas for me to accept either, but when I finally did so in my early 20s, my relationships with women improved dramatically. When I stopped expecting them to want the things I wanted and think the way I thought, and learned how different the female perspective really was, I began relating to women differently and had different expectations from them (realistic ones!), and things were much, much easier.
Guys are MUCH simpler than girls - far more simple than most women can easily accept - but once you DO accept that truth, and recalibrate your expectations of us, you too will have a much easier time dealing with the opposite sex.2

I guess they think we think like them. Without as much emotion and sentiment1
