A relationship is a two-way street. When a person is selfish beyond measure, the relationship is bound to hit a few bumps in the road until it completely falls apart. Selfishness can cause resentment, animosity, and pain. If your partner is being very selfish , it’s time to sit down and talk about things. If you are the one displaying selfish tendencies, you will want to rethink your behavior if you want the relationship to last.

6 signs your partner is extremely selfish

1. They want everything to happen on their terms

For a selfish person, everything must be done his way. An important sign that you are in a relationship with a selfish person is that they demand that everything happen on their terms. They make all the plans and all the decisions and are not willing to compromise.

2. Most communication is negative or neutral

A selfish person does not consider anyone’s feelings. That means they don’t care enough about you to ask how your day went or congratulate you on an achievement. If most of your communication with your partner is negative or neutral, it is a clear sign that they are only thinking about themselves.

3. They make no effort

Lack of effort is another sign that you are in a relationship with a selfish person. They are not willing to go any further to make you happy, to congratulate you, or to surprise you with an impromptu night, because they are too selfish to think about what you may want or need.

4. They don’t want to compromise

A selfish person might be uncomfortable with the word boyfriend or girlfriend. Lack of commitment, especially after a long period of time, is a sign that you are being used. They want to hang around you and tie you down to their own needs, but they are too selfish to compromise, even though they know that’s what will make you happy.

5. Flirt with other people

If your partner deliberately flirts with other people in front of you, they are selfish and immature. They clearly don’t care how you feel, and they don’t stop to think about how their actions are hurting you. They are selfish in essence.

6. They take no responsibility for their actions

The selfish never think they are wrong. They are willing to blame anyone and everyone if it means they don’t have to apologize or admit any wrongdoing. If your partner refuses to take responsibility for their actions or admit when they are wrong, they are truly selfish.
