The narcissist is looking for attention and whatever else you can give him. You need to show no interest, no emotion, nothing. Don't show anger or sadness or even listen to them. Don't pick up the phone. Don't answer the door if its them. Ignore them. They'll eventually go away when they realize you have nothing for them. And they'll move on to their next victim.
No. But don't put your life on hold waiting for them to return. The narcisst will return when his current supply is depleted, or he's in between relationships. If he comes back its only to keep his foot in the door "just in case" things don't work out with the new person. Some narcissists call right away (mine did). Others stay away for months (I've been "Narcissist-free" for over three months now). Start practicing what you'll say or do if and when he contacts you. Be prepared. And don't fall for any of his excuses or promises. He hasn't changed. He hasn't realized he really loves you. Its all lies and promises. Trust me.

He is using sex to lure you back into the relationship. Please read "WOMEN WHO LOVE PSYCHOPATHS" (narcissists, too) you will find your answer! Remember sex is one of the tools used to control you.
If you study Narcissists they are extremely interesting. We are all chameleons in this world to a point, but the Narcissist takes it to the extreme. Narcissists seem to have a knack for sizing up each individual as to how hard they can push them and when it comes to a mate they always choose the ones that are loving, kind and can be manipulated easily. This makes the victim feel they have done something wrong and haven't been strong enough and should have known better, but, in truth we are suppose to possess love and kindness. In time as we age we are much more cynical about people so it becomes easier to figure out people. We are all in a learning field and make mistakes along the way and hope to correct them. Therefore, it's not how many different lives the Narcissist has, but simply how many humans can he con! They fit into families, with their own gender and of course with the opposite sex, but one thing is for sure .... everything has it's time and sooner or later the Narcissist's true colors will come out. If you come across one stay clear because they aren't worth the skin they're in!
They can be so full of themselves and preoccupied with working on new supply they are optimistic about and you mean so little as an individual they can forget about whatever it was they would have been upset about. Narcissist won't try to avenge those recognised as having more power than themselves even if desiring to do so.Otherwise the Narcissist is ballistic ally vengeful towards those he can hurt, paying back a hundred fold real, perceived and imagined slights. Some revenge comes even long after some event as over time the Narcissist has spent ages stewing on something, magnifying and distorting his basis for a grudge.A great deal of any Narcissists' reactions defy logic in understanding their responses to be on the safe side presume the worst case scenarios and be ready for that.
I don't think so. How can change occur in narcissist whose mother is a narcissist as well, even if she accepts him? The very sickness comes from that lack of emotional support given by the mother at the most crucial time, birth. My mother in law has damaged my husband so much that because he is a product of his environment, he had dished out his madness upon me and his children. Sadly, I am the one who had the mental breakdown and has suffered so much. Is there really help for a narcissist?
He believed that it came from faith alone
obviously no because true comes only once
"Narcissist" comes to mind, though it's slighty different.
Many narcissists use SEX as a way to "feel better." They have no real emotional feelings like you and I -- an orgasm is about as close as they get.Narcissistic Personality Disorder and sexThe sexual relationship with the narcissist is most peculiar. Narcissists are exhibitionists and sex is just one further means of being admired to her or him. There does not exist intimacy and you will frequently feel used. The narcissist will demand that you subdue yourself. Your own sexual preferences will be boycotted or twisted. Narcissists have a strong tendency to sexually abuse a partner and children. Here is a list of some of these abusive behaviors:You are prohibited from masturbating or feel good about your own body under the threat of punishmentYou are being made to watch porn although you don't want toYou are not allowed any sexual gratification yourselfThe narcissist pretends to be sexual for you but is after her/his gratification onlyYour sexual past is being torn apartYou are being told that all you want is sex (although you know this is not the case, however sex is central to the narcissist)The narcissist instigates sex (like telling you erotic things and sending you pictures or emails which are sexual) but then decides last minute that nothing is to take place or simply demands abusive sexThe narcissist abuses you while you are asleep (sleep rape)You are being raped on a daily basisYou are feeling humiliated and yet the narcissist claims that (s)he has been humiliatedThe narcissist finds it funny when you get hurt and enjoys it when you get hurt, this can be physically or emotionallyThe narcissist instigates and turns everything into a sexual gameThe narcissist demands prolonged sex way above the limit you can handle nor want toThe narcissist tells you that you want to have sexual relations with everybody although the narcissist has a strong tendency to flirt with others and to be infidelYou are being told off for the fact that you were flirting with someone although you are not flirting at allThe narcissist makes fun of your sexuality in front of others (e.g. you have a small penis or small breasts)The narcissist demands sex when you make it clear that you don't want toThe narcissist has to try out everything possibleThe narcissist is an exhibitionist and will want sex in public and dresses inappropriately at home and or elsewhereThere is another form of sexual abuse. In fact, so I believe, it is the most common one, and hence it took me so long to get it. This form of abuse comes in four stages:Firstly, the victim will be forced to reveal her or his sexual preferences and experiences to the perpetrator.Secondly, the perpetrator will condition the victim to direct her or his entire sexuality towards the perpetrator. At this stage, the sexual relationship is intense.Thirdly, the perpetrator reduces the intensity of the sexual relationship dramatically, so that the victim is in constant sexual need.Fourthy, the perpetrator grants inproper sexual gratification in order to maintain the sexual need of the victim. Now, the victim, who is (sexually) dependent on the perpetrator, can be humiliated, manipulated and used.
It could just be that it's a very insecure person who is trying to convince the rest of the world while he's trying to convince himself. --- Actually yes they do. I have never met an insecure person who would say that, it was normally that they are not as smart and want the validation from others that yes they are smart, but when it comes to a narcissist, they will tell you how much smarter they are than you in an attempt to demean you and make them superior.
not sure when it comes out but they are defo making a film for it :)
Depending on the workplace, some normal people may be encouraged to behave narcissistically. People who work in high pressure jobs often appear to be narcissistic because the position and activities require them to cut-off from their emotions and avoid truly personal interaction. Bosses are renown for displaying narcissistic tendenies. You will know the difference between someone who's just doing their job and someone who has a personality disorder when it comes time for them to deal with admitting they made a mistake about something. Ordinary hardworking people will admit to their mistakes, perhaps not readily, but somewhere along the line, an apology will be forthcoming. Narcissists cannot admit to any wrong-doing at all - even when the facts show clearly that it was their mistake. Instead they will duck and dive and find reason blame someone else. If this isn't possible, they will bare a grudge against the person who showed them up and find a way to take out revenge against this person, no matter how slight or small the original mistake was. The narcissist will blow the perceived slight completely out of proportion and may even seek to destroy the reputation and career of the person who pointed out the mistake. The reasons why narcissists behave this way can be found on other websites. The way to handle productive (and they usually are very driven individuals) narcissists in the workplace is to place a shield person between the narcissist and his colleagues and employees. Narcissists are incapable of compassion, forgiveness and understanding, and this leads to extreme tension in the workplace. A shield person will perform the role of placating the narcissists ever-so-easily bruised ego by making him feel superior, while simultaneously "making the peace" with the genuinely injured colleagues. This is a lot of work for any person to do on a regular basis, so ultimately, the organization will have to decide whether the productivity of the narcissist justifies this continuous maintenance of the atmosphere and well-being of it's other employees on a regular basis.
Usualy Santa Claus comes alone but sometimes a browniecomes with him.
I think that narcissist manipulation comes naturally for them. They have done this for all their lives and it is easy for them. They are professionals at lying, manipulation and cheating as far as I am concerned and it will never end. You can find a lying, manipulative and cheating relationship almost anywhere if that is what you want.
Something that comes from your heart, and your heart alone.
it comes when it wants to
You don't learn common sense, it comes naturally.

you will be very special to a narcissist for awhile. I believe a N really sees novelty in someone that gives him awe inspired attention. This is the narcissistic supply that they must have. Your specialness can last for quite some time, but when a new supply that a N is impressed with comes along, your uniqueness will be just a nice memory for them.
This is like comparing apples and oranges. Both Calvin and Luther vigorously proclaimed salvation by faith in Christ alone. The doctrine of predestination says that God has chosen the ones who have faith from the beginning of time, and emphasizes that faith and salvation comes from God alone. But again, salvation is by fiath alone, regardless of where it comes from.
