One commenter added, “I absolutely hate narcissists. Men who are egocentric, all about themselves and their own problems, and always create drama around their persona. It’s like whenever they have a problem they run to you, call you, and act like they’re your ‘best friend’. But when you’re the one with the problem, they act like it’s nothing, and tell you that you should ‘move on and forget it’.” 

King Of Gossip

A third commenter shared, “If a man is subtly (or overtly) competing with me or anyone else during a conversation, I don’t want to continue talking with him or make him a part of any future conversation. This kind of competitiveness comes out in things like name dropping, or when you are excitedly telling others about a new experience, he mentions how he’s already been there and done that.”

This user mentioned, “A man who is very negative about everything – you know, a pessimist, a “Donnie Downer.” I understand that some negativity is warranted every now and then, but that should definitely be countered by some positivity as well. If not, you just kind of put a damper on everything.

Bragging About Status
