Concerning the 'It's All About Me' trope and Damon. Personally, I did not interpret that scene as him saying he doesn't care about her happiness as long as he can have her to himself at all. He was saying he wanted her to have everything she wants - a normal, human life and all that comes with it, and that was the reason he would have saved her instead of Matt. So he was pretty much being sarcastic when he said he's selfish, also alluding to that telling-her-he-loves-her-then-making-her-forget thing.
