DSanders insecurities probably got to him. She kept loving herself & sometimes he looks at himself & it's hard to feel like you're still on her level. He'll look for his ways to rationalize it, so will some dudes in this thread. Fact is, (us) men HATE feeling like a woman can be above us, hence as to why we're always degrading them whether it be through "just man talk" or whatever. That woman can do ANYTHING she wants in life, whatever money she wants, she'll get from just about anyone, anywhere, anytime. Ego bruises can be brutal. Especially when these dudes are older.
I can somewhat agree but at the same time, I think it was the fact that as she was doing her thing, she started to change on him, the things that one was a priority to her was taking a backseat to her"career" which significantly changed the dynamic of the relationship. I was with a girl like that for over three years and everything was fine until she got a chance at a better career she changed because she was focused on it that our relationship went down as a result and it ended badly. So it's not that she was doing better than me, it was more about her not making our relationship one of her main priorities. People tend to not realize that when are with someone, whether in long term relationship or marriage, other decisions in your life can help or hurt those relationships' ability to be stable.
