Dating a cocky guy
To understand the differences between Mr Confident and Mr Arrogant, let’s imagine a date with each of these guys. He walks in to the room and you notice him straight away.
Talk about making an impact; he looks sharp, his head is held high and he’s not afraid of anything or anyone.
You try to tell him about your recent holiday, but he corrects the way you pronounce the foreign city and then dismisses the area as being ‘low-class’.
You listen to him talk about friends and colleagues, but he seems to be putting everyone down; you start to wonder if there’s anyone he actually likes.
If someone doesn’t have the same opinion, they are wrong, not different.
An arrogant man never considers an opinion that is different to his own.
He’s selfish and in love with his own reflection and completely focussed on his own achievements.
He’s aware of all his strengths, but never recognises any weaknesses.
The old saying goes: ‘there’s a fine line between confidence and arrogance’ – but where exactly is that line?Seeing as it’s beach body weather, I thought a girl like you would be focussing on losing a couple of pounds.” “He just orders coffee.You sheepishly agree and feel deflated and embarrassed, and somehow like you’re not meeting his expectations.Highlighting other people’s flaws (whether this is physical or intellectual) helps boost their own confidence and raises their own status, proving they are ‘always right’.Mr Arrogant will brag about his car, his money, his elite gym membership and his career.As you chat to him over dinner, you see that he’s wearing an expensive watch, but before you’ve had a chance to compliment him on it, he’s already asked if you’ve heard of the watch brand and boasted about how expensive it is.
