13. Taker: He’s Always Focused On His Needs And Wants
The Taker will be open about what his relationship expectations are. At first, they might sound totally understandable: he might want a partner who’s there for him, respects him, gives him unconditional love, and so on. But pay closer attention. A Taker will always be talking about his wants. Soon you’ll see that he never actually pays attention to what other people want, such as you. In fact, he might not even ask you what your relationship wants are. If he does, he’s likely to ignore them.
He’ll always put his needs and wants over yours because he sees them as more important.
For example, on the weekend when you want to do something you like to do for a change, he’ll give you reasons why doing his activity is much more important or simply better. Dating someone who concentrates on his needs and wants while ignoring his partners can become even more troubling over time when your emotional needs are on the table. For example, if you’re going through a stressful time, you might need your partner to be there to help you through it. But the Taker won’t care. He’ll try to find ways during your difficult time to get attention, such as by having dramas of his own. Dealing with him is exhausting!
