trying to sort it out

I've been dating a guy for two months and even though I'm not sure about him, I find myself gauging how I feel against what I think he feels. My friends tell me this is a pattern with me. On paper, he's great and has a lot of qualities that I want in a guy ... good-looking, smart, articulate, well-read, active. However, he can be self-absorbed and inconsiderate at times. He also likes to challenge things I say to the point that I feel dumb. I'm not sure these are deal-breakers, but it's hard for me to sort out how I feel versus just wanting the relationship to work out. It's been a while since I've clicked with a guy and I really hate the idea of just walking away and going through the dating and weeding process again.
I guess my question is ... am I just so insecure and desperate for a relationship that I am willing to overlook some possibly significant issues? How can I approach the dating process with more of a "do you meet my criteria/are you good enough for me approach"?
