When you fall in love, you tend to look at the world with rose-colored glasses. The person in front of you seems to be perfect and there’s nothing that bothers you about him.
But then you hear your friends telling you how your guy is arrogant and how they don’t understand how you can tolerate his behavior. And at this point, you can’t believe their words.
You think that the guy you’re dating is confident and aware of his worth but that’s all you’ve been seeing. Still, your friends don’t agree with you and they keep trying to convince you that you’re wrong.
Well, the truth is that sometimes, it can be hard to be honest about the person you like since you keep seeing only their good points. That’s why you can easily confuse someone’s arrogance for confidence without even realizing the mistake you’ve made.
In order to prevent that from happening, you should read this article and see whether your crush showcases any of the following signs. If you see any of them, then you better run away.
1. He outdoes other people in conversation
An arrogant man can’t do the listening part of a conversation – not even if his life depended on it. He simply can’t stand being quiet since he feels that he has too much to say.
That’s why he’s the one who does the most of the talking. But not only will he talk uncontrollably, he’ll also make sure to let others know his words make the most sense.
He just has this idea in his head that whatever comes out of his mouth is priceless and other’s people thoughts can’t even compare to his. That’s why he feels this need to do all of the talking since he thinks he’s better than the rest.
The fact that he loves to talk made your first dates easier. He was always there to say something and avoid an awkward silence. But if you think about it more and he outdoes you and everyone else whenever you’re having a conversation, then that’s the first sign you’re dating an arrogant man.
2. He brags about his achievements
An arrogant man always brags about his achievements. Even if you were to call him to say that you got promoted, he would still find a way to tell you that he did better than you that day.
His achievements are all that matters and no matter how successful others are, he’ll still find a way to boast about himself. From his point of view, he’s the only one who’s capable and others can’t even compare to him.
3. He cuts others off in the middle of sentences
Not only does he love to be the one who talks the most but an arrogant man also has a tendency to cut others off in the middle of sentences. He doesn’t care whether you’re talking about something important, if he feels the need to share some of his thoughts, he’ll simply interrupt you.
The worst part is that he doesn’t think you deserve to receive an apology from him. He truly believes that he has every right to talk whenever he wants, no matter whether someone else is speaking already.
Don’t ever confuse this behavior with confidence since it has nothing to do with it. When he cuts others off in the middle of a sentence, that’s arrogance and nothing more than that.
4. He brags about his clothes
This guy loves talking about himself, his achievements, and his capabilities. But he also loves bragging about his clothes and the sense of style he has.
He always feels the need to hear others complimenting him on the way he’s dressed. But even when no one says anything, he’ll find a way to show off about it himself.
The worst part is that at some point, he’ll start criticizing you on the way you dress. He’ll push you to change your style so that it suits him better. Even if you don’t feel comfortable in the clothes he wants you to wear, he’ll still insist on you dressing better since he can’t imagine himself dating someone who doesn’t dress as nicely as he does.
As awful as this sounds, it’s just the way arrogant people are programmed to think. They’re shallow and care only about their appearance and the ones of the people they hang out with. That’s all you’re going to get from them.
5. He treats others badly
Whenever you’re in a restaurant and a waiter approaches you, your guy snaps at him within seconds. Even if the poor man hasn’t done anything wrong, your arrogant guy will find an issue with his behavior.
It’s obvious that he treats others badly and as if they’re beneath him. He wants to feel like he’s above everyone and he makes sure to show that through his actions.
He doesn’t care about the way he treats others and even when you point out to him that he’s not being very kind, he’ll simply ignore your words. He’ll say something about how it’s a waiter’s job to serve him and not the other way around.
When you hear him saying something like this, run as fast as you can. This guy is an arrogant piece of trash and he doesn’t know how to treat others with respect. At some point, he’ll start to treat you the same way too, since he doesn’t really care about anyone except himself.
6. He never admits to his mistakes
Even when he makes a mistake, you won’t hear him admitting to it. An apology won’t ever slip out of his mouth because he thinks of himself as perfect.
He doesn’t think he can do anything wrong so therefore he doesn’t make mistakes. He’s flawless in every sense of the word and doesn’t care what others have to say.
It could be that besides being arrogant, he also suffers from a god complex. In that case, you should run away as fast as you can before he ruins you for love.
