    Was married to a very pretty woman ( mainly face). Just beautiful. She had a weight issue and went up and down. Whenever we would argue, she jumped on match dot come to get attention from the beautiful photos I took of her (photographer). We are split now, she still does it. She has no girlfriends, never did, but loves dates and guys doting/attention. Narcissistic bully too. Emotionally abusive.

      My opinion, there’s nothing wrong with self admiration so as long as it doesn’t fly over the roof… Why not love & admire our own inner & outer beauty??? Doesn’t define everyone as neither narcissist nor conceited. Many people tend to believe this to be true because they have tendencies to repeat the words they often hear from others & believe what’s been indoctrinated into their mind & are quick labeling what they don’t know of another & then over react when we call them on it as if we should be handing them a gold metal instead of speaking up on it in order for them to have a better inner standing that we each possess our own uniqueness & individuality. My opinion too is that we’re all Jekyll & Hyde.

      Accept your own humanity & the world will accept you as you are.
