For these guys, it can be really important to find someone who understands them, and who is willing to put in the effort to date them.
Watch the following video carefully; it is a real eye-opener:
Is it selfish for guys with low self esteem to try to date people?
There is no easy answer when it comes to whether or not it is selfish for guys with low self esteem to try to date people. On the one hand, it can be tempting for them to believe that dating will make them feel better about themselves. After all, if they can find someone who is attracted to them, they may feel like they are worth something.
However, it is important to remember that dating can be a really difficult process. It can be tough to put yourself out there, and if a guy with low self esteem is not prepared for this, it can be really tough. In the end, it may not be worth it for him to try to date someone if he is not prepared to deal with the potential rejection.
Based on my personal experience from dating someone with low-self esteem for 2 years….yes and no.
It isn’t your fault that you have low self-esteem, however, if you aren’t taking active steps to help your situation, it will negatively impact your relationship, which isn’t fair on the other person. My ex was very kind, caring, generous, etc. Everything you could want in a partner from an emotional perspective. However…
His low-self esteem got in the way of our ability to have a healthy, happy relationship. Some of the major issues we had in our relationship were:
He was very critical of himself and always put himself down. He was also very critical of others that he was intimidated by. He could be very negative sometimes and no one wants to constantly be around that. Granted he was also suffering from depression, but he wasn’t actively seeking treatment/therapy, so this turned out to be a huge issue.
He was extremely insecure about himself which lead to jealousy and false accusations. He was so paranoid about being cheated on since he had that experience in the past. However, I was very loyal to him and never gave him a reason to believe I was looking elsewhere. Yes, I have male friends…just like most females. He had more female friends than male and I was perfectly ok with it. He would accuse me of cheating or being disrespectful if I talked to a male classmate or went to happy hour with a male colleague. It became annoying having to constantly defend myself and it was almost like a slap in the face. Ironically, he was the one looking for validation from other females on social media by flirting and cheating. Peace out to that shit.
He was constantly picking fights with me about nothing and the endless drama was exhausting. If he didn’t like something I did or said, we would lash out and act child-like. I started walking on eggshells around him and then realized that I’m not the problem, he is. I shouldn’t have to watch what I say or do around my partner.
Vicious cycle of makeup/breakup. I’m a pretty confident, level-headed person and have never been in a relationship where we were constantly breaking up, apologizing, getting back together…only to have it happen again and again. It’s toxic and no one has time for that.
Communication was horrible and almost non-existent. It was so difficult to resolve anything because he had poor communication and coping skills.
Sooo I would say that unless you can work through your issues and help your partner understand what some of your issues are, you really have no business being in a relationship with anyone except for yourself and your therapist.
