Unfortunately, Narcissism is a life long disease. If your partner is clinically narcissistic, there is very little hope of him or her ever changing.

"Turn the tables" makes it sound like you want revenge. If the relationship is unhealthy, get out, and don't look back.

Definitely not worth it.

. You couldn't (improve on last answer, or have a relationship with a Narcissist without feeling abused).You cannot have a relationship with an abuser without feeling abused.

Not a healthy relationship.. that's for sure

Narcissists are the least likely to go for any type of counseling and it's a rarity they will ever change no matter how good the next relationship is. When narcissists meet with pyschiatrists they resist therapy, they turn the tables and start pyschoanalyzing the pyschiatrist, using pyschology as a weapon against them. Sometimes doing so very successfully, letting a narcissist understand pyschology is like giving a loaded gun to a child to play with, they dont use it good reasons. This is why they are dispised by mental health care workers.

Yes, you can have a relationship with a narcissist, but will it be a fulfilling one? I was in a relationship with a narcissist and it completely drained my energy! They are so in love with themselves, they can do no wrong and they expect you to cater to their needs and their wants only. If they pamper you and give you things, it is for their own gain. Do not be fooled, these people do not know how to love anyone.

No- a narcissist is a narsiccist- no matter who they choose to victimize. Don't worry, it just takes them alittle while to turn up that heat in the kitchen, but it will get hot!!

A relational DB can consist of any number of tables. --------------- Two or more tables to establish a relationship. You cannot have a relationship with yourself ...

People have long-term relationships with all sorts of people. Having a long-term relationship with a narcissist may not be your cup of tea, but it certainly is possible to do so.

Welll that depends how long this person lives. AS they are always in a relationship with themself

someone also obsessed with that person.

not so much a narcissist but for sure you will notice in hindsight that you were beginning to act like those morons do.......a co-dependent

They don't "turn into" a destructive narcissist... they just drop the "nice guy" facade they used to lure you in.

A relationship where he rules supreme and the other half feels depressed, devalued, and confused.

To turn the tables on someone you must be one step ahead of them and play them at their own game so that their plan for you turns onto themselves.Or, to say that in plain English, "turn the tables" means that you do what someone has done to you back to that person. For example, if someone eats your lunch at work, the next day you would "turn the tables" and eat theirs.

You can become narcissistic afterwards, but you will not turn into a true narcissist. Stay away from him and go back to your family and hang around them for a while.

It's certainly possible. A narcissist may date another narcissist that is more selfish than they are to feel better about themselves. In turn say "i'm not as selfish as he/she is so that makes me above him/her). It's incredible and shocking the way people with this disorder think. It takes a lot of research to understand a narcissist.

You grieve for the relationship you SHOULD have had.

Narcissists have a natural ability to turn any situation in their favor (in their own minds, of course!). If they feel it is important that they are the one who "left" the relationship, then in their minds, they are, in fact, the one who left the relationship. If it were to their benefit that you "left" the relationship, then that is the way it would be (in their own minds, of course!). There is no way to change the mind of the N and the N will so adamantly believe they left the relationship, the belief becomes the truth for them. You do know that it is of no importance who exited the relationship. The important factor is that you are free of the narcissist and if you have any hope of living a peaceful life, you will keep it that way!

How dare you dump a narcissist! They will panic at first. Let you have a day or two to miss their royal presence, maybe leave you a message saying I love you. Then if you refuse to talk to them they will get angry and find a way to tell you all the reasons why they can't stay in this relationship- go figure?? It's all very confusing, but I think they can't stand the fact that you're not falling for their crap anymore. They are losing control. So to compensate for that they turn the tables, and in their mind they dump you, even if you did the dumping! Crazy stuff.

The question is help them how? Refer them to counseling, but they don't want to be fixed, though you may want to fix them to be a 'normal' person so you can keep a relationship with them. If you are a lay person and in a relationship with a narcissist, you cannot help them. Just by the nature of your relationship and the pathology of a narcissist, things will get ugly, it will be at your expense and there will be no change in the narcissist. A good therapist will be the one to help a narcissist, but it takes a great deal of work on the part of the narcissist, a commitment to healing, only they don't see themselves as 'broken' or anything wrong with them, so an honest introspective communication with a therapist is rare. It's so hard to understand. Leaving them is best for you though and isn't that sad that that is also the way to help a narcissist, because they are sucking your goodness from you and using it to buoy themselves. So sad.
