Unfortunately, you are now having that heart-sinking feeling that what you once thought was strength is actually an over-inflated ego.Sadly, dating a man with a big ego leaves you open for difficulties that you may not want to deal with in a relationship.Only those bigger, stronger and more powerful can get through the shell, and once your exposed you become vulnerable.No one does, which is why when it comes to dating, both men and women are guarded and play so many games.The feelings of inferiority in this specific complex are often brought on by real or perceived social rejection.Uncyclopedia calls it a difficult disorder to deal with: “Sometimes, these feelings can go as far as to cause those affected to act as if they are on a golden pedestal, and everyone else is peasant scum.No, it's not "self-esteem"There’s a thin line between ego and self-esteem.First, it can present itself as one in the same and you’re attracted to his confidence and assertiveness.
He won’t be able to take all the credit and his ego can’t take that. He compares himself and your relationship to others. He’s dependent on your love to boost his self-value. He doesn’t like how much time you spend with your family. When it's left unrestrained, it can destroy your relationships with anger, fear, and jealousy.
On the other hand, a man with high self-esteem has confidence in his own abilities, knows his shortcomings, and loves himself. Often when you share something, he can turn it around and make it about him.
He’s secure enough with who he is and is able to unmask. Take notice of who’s doing most of the talking and sharing in your relationship. The ego wants to protect itself before all else, even if it means protecting itself from being bruised by you.
In many cases this is true, but if anything this makes it all the more irritating for those around them.
Many sufferers simply cannot control their own boasting, and may suffer chronic migraines due to their incredibly swollen heads.
