Somebody who frequents
internet message boards and chat rooms
and tries to project an image of being a badass
. Typical internet tough guy behavior may include:
- Claims to be a master of any number of martial arts styles.
- Claims to be incredibly strong and physically fit.
- Threatens violence
against other message board members
room users who anger or annoy him.
- May claim
to an ex-Marine, ex-Special Forces, or gangsta
exaggerated claims about his own sexual
prowess and ability to seduce women.
Most internet tough guys
are liars, and are actually
angry, socially-awkward young males
who use the internet as a place to act tough because they can't pull it off in real life.
Examples of comments an internet tough guy might make:
"If I knew where you lived
life, I'd kick your ass for saying that."
"The other night I beat
out of some dude
who dissed my Harley. I then took his girlfriend
(who happens to be a Victoria's Secret model) back to my place and shagged her until the sun came up."
