Putting too much obvious effort into achieving something. Most often applies to trying to act or look cool in comparison to others - or in trying to get the sexual attention of a boy or girl.

Action spurred by a desperation for attention.
E: Did you see how Ryan was acting last night at the bar, he was just begging for attention!
M: Yeah, he was definitely tryin' it.
