Have you ever been in a relationship with a selfish partner? Selfish people can suck the happiness out of you and leave you emotionally drained. They believe that they deserve all your attention and love without giving you anything in return. No one wants to be treated like this. Even when they fail to do so, we often tend to excuse them by thinking that they just had a bad day or they had other more important things to do.
They may even try to shift the responsibility to you and blame you for all the problems that will arise in your relationship. To have a healthy and deep relationship both partners must show commitment, empathy, affection, and interest. They should equally share their responsibilities. They believe that they can never upset you or break your heart.
They will think that you can never leave them and that things are going to be the same forever. Your partner will always think his needs, opinions, pleasures, and problems matter more than yours.
