List Rules Vote up the biggest indicators that prove your spouse mostly cares about him or herself.

If you’re in a relationship with someone and you’re beginning to feel like your significant other might be more in love with themselves than they are with you, then you might be stuck in a one-way marriage with a selfish partner. If this is the case then you either need to figure out how to appropriately confront your self-centered spouse or (if you have the ability) cut and run while you still can. If your boyfriend is selfish then it’s hard to get anything for yourself taken care of. This can mean anything as simple as going out for a haircut to planning your big day. Keep reading to get some ideas for how to figure out if your boyfriend or girlfriend is selfish.

If you’re dealing with a selfish spouse then the signs on this list will be way too familiar: from their distinct lack of empathy, to the amount of time they spend talking about themselves. After a certain age it’s pretty much impossible to break someone out of their narcissistic tendencies, so hopefully you love your partner and their nightmare of a personality. But if you constantly think to yourself, “my partner is selfish,” then you may need to start looking for a way to get out of your relationship pronto.

Vote on the biggest indicators that prove your spouse mostly cares about him or herself.
