Dan is a very wealthy and highly influential man in the society. A lot of individuals pattern their lives after his. He is very successful and loved by many but Dan defines himself by how much he has in his bank account, his luxury cars , designer clothes and more. He flaunts his material wealth without caution to get attention, acceptance and love from others. Dan doesn’t feel fulfilled hanging around people who fail to sing his praises all the time.
When it comes to relating with the opposite sex, Dan gets intimate with as many ladies as possible with his money as his tool for wooing them. This is one of the ways he validates himself. To him, without money a man cannot be loved by a woman….Dan has low self esteem.
A man has low self esteem if he feels inferior and worthless just because he currently lacks material wealth.
A man with low self esteem doesn’t have a mind of his own; he is greatly influenced by his peer group, more like a puppet.
He bullies people a lot and is threatened by successful women. Reason why even some very educated men will prefer getting married to an illiterate woman so they can always feel and be superior and in charge.
A man with LSE will rather go with women of easy virtue than walk up to a lady and express his feelings towards her. To him, the fear of getting a ‘No’ as response from the lady will destabilize him so going with a lady who has a price tag is already a done deal as long as you meet the criteria. Sometimes ladies make the ‘task’ easier for them by being the ones to make the ‘move’.
A man with LSE needs to show that he is a man through violent acts; he beats up his wife/woman.
A man with Low self esteem is over possessive. He chokes his woman’s social life, gets too jealous unnecessarily, is always very suspicious of her every move and is ultimately scared that a she may find a better guy than him because despite the fact that she loves him, he feels he is not good enough.
Common phrases men with LSE use are: “I am a man”! “Do you know who I am?” “Who would listen to a poor guy like me?” ” ….because I am short right?”
