These guys funamentally missunderstand human interaction. I've seen it theorised that this (and other "flaws" in a significant portion of moden males) is due to a social shift in which men are less socialised by older, more mature men, compared to the past. They end up with a twisted impression of masculinity that they then ape to their own detriment.
Interestingly, what they THINK they are doing would be helpful in getting together with women.
