I have a weird expectation of being exclusive. If I don’t feel like a unique addition to someone’s life, I tend to shut down and walk away completely. I can track this feeling back to when I was in like 8th grade or even earlier. Not sure why.
Competing against other people for women, attention or fame never really triggered me. I was never striving to become an ‘alpha male’. And even now I still prefer becoming a better ‘sigma male’.
(Although the labels of alpha or sigma merely capture the complexity of what’s going on I guess)
