I believe it does in some cases, depending on the degree of selfishness. There are a lot of thick-headed people on the planet, lots and lots of them, and they will do whatever it takes to make themselves happy, even at the expense of others, or even ignoring the others wants and needs.
Absolutely! When someone is selfish, they end up not being able to share the basic things to be IN a relationship. They end up ignoring the needs of the other, constantly making thier mate feel slighted and ultimately alone. I am accquianted with a couple, and their relationship is on the rocks because of selfish behaviour and lack of affection. Selfish People don't deserve to be in a relationship...
Yes. Selfishness in the extreme kills a relationship. But so does complete selflessness. Conversely, a little bit of giving and a little bit of taking gives a relationship life.
Most definitely! Compromise is the key to any successful relationship. A selfish person loves only themselves and does not consider other's feelings and will not put anyone else before them. A relationship takes two....selfishness defines "me, myself and I." Therefore, there is no room for anyone else.
Yes, selfishness destroys the very foundation of a relationship which is a mutual give and take. I live with a most selfish individual and for me at least it has destroyed most of the esteem I once held for this individual.

Most people who call themselves 'believers' are closet atheist because they don't want to get in futile arguments or disowned by their own parents or lose friends over not believing such things. They often don't feel like they are allowed to not believe and they keep quite about it because they...
