Guys who have a big ego are insecure about themselves. It’s simple psychology. When a guy is egoistic, he will lack the required self-esteem to bring positive vibes to a relationship.
All he will have to offer to the relationship will be negativity and when a person is unhappy about himself, he does things which drive people away. If your boyfriend is egotistic and self centered, he will be more concerned about his fragile insecurities than filling the cracks in your soul.
Here are some signs which show that he is more concerned about himself than you.
- Everything is about him
Whenever you’re hurt or depressed, and you tell him about your sorrows, instead of helping you get out of this state and providing support, he makes it all about himself. He relates it to his pain and eventually, you end up consoling him.
- He’s an 'Askhole', pardon my French
In the words of the great Robert Downy Jr.,
"Whenever anyone gives you advice, Listen, smile, agree, and then do whatever the f*ck you were gonna do anyway.”
I love Robert Downey JR. He is awesome, but we’ve come to know in all Iron man movies that he’s definitely not the ideal boyfriend.
Even if he does take your advice, he can’t just accept that you were right; he will just try to take all of the credit and discredit you from everything. His ego is so colossal that it’s actually tangible in the air that surrounds him.
