  • Make sure he gives it to you first...then he gets his. Sometimes if I give first he gets too worked up...

  • Why is it that people ask overly generalized questions when they're upset with a very, very small fraction of the entire sex they're lambasting?

  • My Husband is a very caring person. He does so much that in the begining I thought he was just trying to trick me. And I kept waiting for him to change, after five years of being together I finally believed him.

  • I don't know. I have been lucky to know many that are not like that. Unfortunately most of them are related to me. But my stbxh has always been selfish like that.  He was also abusive but he drained me. I was always there to support him, give him what he asked for no matter what. I always put my needs on the back burner. When I asked for something I usually got yelled at ot told to suck it up.

  • My ex- because he has "my mommy left me" syndrome.

    On the other hand, my so is one of the most caring, giving people I've ever known- not all men are selfish assholes.
