Does pride tend to take over with guys?

I left my ex because he was very disrespectful towards me and never appreciated the things I have done for him. When I left he put the blame on me and called me crazy. Since then I haven't heard from him. Two weeks after I left he gets in a relationship with someone else. I'm so angry because he never even apologized. Do you think his pride got in the way?

  • You she pride is something that get's in the way of everybody and pride is directly linked to fear. The problem is we get hurt because of something doesn't really matter what usually it's an argument that should have taken a different turn meaning it should have been talked about not argued about. Then because of an argument feelings get hurt and because we're naturally scared of getting hurt our pride kicks in and we go into defensive mode. Now the problem is nothing good ever comes out of this except more hurt feelings right? Just think about it two people how have feelings towards each other start talking but get arguing then break up and then both of them are angry with each other. Then they start doing stuff that's supposed to show the other person that they're really great when they're in fact not. So in the end the person that's able to put their pride aside might be able to turn the other person too and smooth things out. The sooner the better I say.

  • The way he probably sees it is you left him.

    Maybe the thinks that if he approaches you now to apologize or whatever it will be seen as desperate/stalkery. So he won't. You can either call that pride or experience with previous breakups.

    Also maybe he just doesn't care because he was as you said disrespectful to you the whole time.

  • Its not pride.
    A man with pride holds it in treating his woman right. (inb4 feminists strikes , alright , his female companion)

    He's just downright irresponsible and totally disregard other people's feelings.

  • yes, his ego was taking center stage in your relationship. I pity that new girl he goes with, he will be the same with her. Old habits die hard.
