behaving altruistically means to act out of love, it is self-less and an individual does not act to have anything in return. Affectionate is gained from altruism behavior. On the other hand, egoistic behavior is acts done out of ego, self-worth, self-esteem. An individual behaves in this way for personal gain.

individuals want to help one another out of love, compassionate and passion
