Story Idea - Egoistic Lovers

Two super egoistic lovers and the lengths to which they go to boost their ego after a petty fight.

It's about two people who go to great lengths to prove they are in love and finally find out that they are not. They are in love with themselves!

The story dives headlong into the romance and makes it sizzle. Its the ideal romance, and the two lovers are so pleased with themselves. But all through this romance there are indications that give away their real selves - Mr. and Ms. Egoistic. And then over a seemingly small issue they take off on their egoistic journeys, going to great lengths to boost their egos - each wants to prove to the other that he /she is capable of great sacrifice and in the end they find, after losing everything, that the only person they loved was themselves. The treatment most certainly has to be funny - the type where telling the truth is the funniest type.

Need to push the envelope of course and show them both for being what they are - hollow. I remember the 'War of Roses' but that's about married people. This is a cliched theme too but the only thing that is probably different is that the entire story dwells on their egos.
