We’ve all heard stories about an arrogant, self-centered man breaking a woman’s heart. He seems perfect in the beginning but over time things get complicated, his schedule becomes vague and his whereabouts mysterious, he becomes withdrawn, an emotional roller coaster. In conversation this type of male has earned the whimsical appellation “asshole…”
