Dating reason selfish
He doesn’t want to hear you complain about how crappy a boyfriend he is, so he does the bare minimum in order to avoid that discussion.He wants you to be there for him but he doesn’t return the gesture.
On the off chance he does surprise you with a gift, it’s only to get back into your good graces.
When you’re in love, it’s easy to overlook or make excuses for your partner’s negative qualities. Every time you fight, you’re always the first one to say sorry — even if it wasn’t your fault.
After all, no one is perfect and he’s bound to have some less desirable traits because we all do. If his reaction to every single argument/disagreement is to try to de-escalate it as quickly as possible without even solving the issue because he really can’t deal with your feelings, he’s selfish AF. You apologize for stuff you didn’t even do because you know that’s the only way to end the argument.
Suddenly, he’s tired or hungry or whatever other BS excuse he can come up with to not have to listen to you. He’s made it abundantly clear that his needs are far more important than yours.
Once he’s finished, he’s ready to go straight to sleep — he couldn’t care less that you were left unsatisfied.He never gives just to give or because he truly wants to.
