5. That's a bit much of him to do that! He's got some nerve!
6. They're always displaying their happiness on their Facebook, they are so annoying (can I use flaunt or show off?)
7. He still doesn't want to come to the party next Friday! He is standing by ? (or :he remains unshakable, he really sticks to his guns!??)

6. Yes, you can say something like "they are always showing off" or "they are always flaunting their wealth".

7. "Standing by" would not work here. You could say something like "There is no way to change his mind".

8. "giving into peer pressure" sounds better.

Sorry for the delay in replying!

No worries, thank you!

I don't know if I need to create a new thread, you'll tell me. :)
I have three more please:

1. I've never loved my sister, she's always been mean to me. So I have literally no obligations towards her.
2. He's a real womanizer! Trust me I know something about that! (or just "I know about that!")?
3. They pretend they love each other, but it's just a facade. (not the truth)

Next time, please start a new thread.

1. This is ok.
2. This is ok. When they write "I know something about that", it means they have personal experience.
3. This is ok too. Façade - false appearance that makes someone appear better than they actually are.
