Ask someone who doesn't like you. They'll at least be honest about it. You can come up with the answer yourself. Here are some thoughts: Do you constantly talk about yourself to others and never ask how their life is going? Do you treat people unkindly or consider other people stupid and you are much more intelligent? Do you ignore other's opinions on certain subjects? Do you order people around and don't care what their likes or dislikes are? Are you argumentative with others over most subjects in a conversation? Do you always have to be right? Those above are but a few. If you have 1 or more of these then you need to sit up and fly right! Most of us have a little Narcissism going on inside ourselves, but most people take time out and try to balance it.

Is it normal for a narcissist to say they dont know what love is because they have never had it in their lives even though you told them how much you loved them?

The only "love" a narcissist knows is self-love. Their inability to empathize with anyone else means they are unlikely to know what love is. A narcissist will say anything to maintain their narcissistic supply. If you are the source of this supply, and they realised that if they said they don't know what love is will get you to increase that supply, then they will say it. Please be careful. Look after yourself.

Be disrespectful to yourself and shower hm/her with exaggerated respect. Humiliate yourself and worship the narcissist. Be his/her loyal slave. You have the choice to either respect the narcissist or yourself, because you can't respect both of you at the same time. Choose wisely. Please don't do yourself a disservice by trying to get a narcissist back into your life. You answered your own question...they dicarded you from theirs...just as they will continue to do with either you or others. You are worth much more than that. That person will not respect you or give you the love you deserve. Why would you want to re-introduce an abusive narcissist into your life? Count your blessings for having gotten rid of him!
