You browse the menu and he asks what wine you’d like.
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.
You’ve got the same dish as him and it tastes fine. You look at the menu and say you quite fancy the sticky toffee pudding.
You expect your date to agree on how good this looks, but instead he quips in with: “do you realise how many calories that is?
The waiter brings over your food, but your date doesn’t say thank you.
Before long, he’s clicking his fingers to invite the waiter back, and raising his voice as he talks about the ‘utter garbage’ on the plate in front of him. People are staring and your date is shouting that he’s got a villa on the Amalfi coast so knows how this Italian seafood dish should be cooked properly and it ‘just isn’t good enough’.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 for the dismissing of menu items, correction of pronunciation and putting down the waiter; arrogant guys only feel clever if they make someone else feel stupid.
