Dating an egotistical man
He’s secure enough with who he is and is able to unmask. He keeps bringing up the ex you’re still friends with and asks you where you are if you’re out past a certain time.
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.
When this desire comes at the cost of others, it’s called pride.
