Are people really so selfish?

There's this guy I've been talking to and he never reciprocates any of my questions.
"why are you still talking you may ask?"
He sends me images of the things I've told him I have an interest in.
So that tells me he's still interested.
But he just never asks how I am first.
In fact he would rather tell me about all his ailments and his adventures of his day.

But he often knows everything about everything and will suggest I do outside reading incase I'm not getting what he's talking about.

Seriously though, my ex was the same way. I thought it was odd that he never asked about me and talked about himself all the time. Within three months of living together, He became a violent narcissist. Huge red flags when someone does not ask about you. Please consider my advice. I wouldn’t want anyone to go through what I did

He may be interested but he's not putting a heckuvalot of effort into showing it. He sounds kinda pretentious too.

You can do better.

The last girl he talked to he probably asked her how she was and she told him to mind his own business, called him a nosey creep and a stalker. Or he made some other kind of heinous slip up. So he's not taking any chances this time. 🤭

[@609293,RogueLoner] no, I don't think it's that but like me socially he has been outcast
That’d bore me very quickly and I’d be gone. If there’s not reciprocal interest and genuine listening it’s never going to be a satisfying relationship.

He sounds very self centered and stuck up i wouldn't waste my time on him personally.

Pain affects everyone different. Probably unaware that he neglects to ask how you are.

He’s one of two things: autistic or a narcissist

Why don't you just tell him how you feel. Or, are you expecting one of us to do that for you?

It can be seen as being selfish... And maybe he is... Or just a really bad conversationalist
Yes, apparently so. Why are you wasting your time on that dud?
Cowboybob · M
Yes. I think the internet and anonymity tend to exacerbate the trend
Doomflower · 36-40, F
Hard to say. He's a special kind of awkward.
everyoneknows · 31-35, T
