A narcissist knows nothing about love. That word does not exist for these monsters. They leave a realtionship for a variety of reasons. Like for one: They are not getting enough attention from the spouse. Remember it is all about them. They have no feelings and never have so they they can't relate to feelings. They leave a realtionship for sex, because they may not be getting what they want from their spouse. Keep in mind, they simply only care about themselves not about anyone around them. Sometimes it takes several people to possibly please them or provide them with enough Narcissitic supply (food source for them)and if what they want hurts someone they could care less.They are emotional vampires. If you are with one run as fast as you can away or you will end up emotionally drained and broken hearted. There is no cure for these freaks. Mine left over 50 times in 5 years...but he ALWAYS return because he does know I love him and I can remind him of his accomplishments unlike a new partner. So they'll leave but not really cut off contact because we are their supply.
A narcissist doesn't care about anyone other than themselves. When this person is finished with one person, that person no longer matters. They move on and it doesn't matter with whom (friend or someone you don't even know).
The paranoid feeling is a symptom of PTSD.
You should do some serious self analysis to determine why you would try to have an intimate relationship with a person you have described as a narcissist. Hopefully you will eventually decide that you are wasting your time and should move on with your life and find a mate who is capable of caring for and about you as much as you do about him.
A narcissist and more extreme would be psychopath
A narcissist would not want help because he or she would not think there was anything wrong. Therefore, you can't help a narcissist; even when a narcissist is court ordered into therapy, there is little a professional can do to help a person change this personality type.
because she might like you
If you have moved on from your past relationship from a narcissist it is no one else's business and there is no need to explain to anyone. If asked tell them to go onto the Internet and learn about it. What you went through in the past is painful and in order to move on all you need to do is be sure you have gotten good counseling and move on. There is life after living with a narcissist!
A narcissist cannot show appreciation. A narcissist is a person who looks at themselves as higher than others, or believing they can do any task better than others, so for a narcissist to show appreciation would be very odd.
I am not sure what "meaningful" means - but many narcissists have long term relationships with their sources of supply (not necessarily with other narcissists).
It's difficult to prove a negative. If a narcissist finds out some of those characteristics, all he has to do is be a good actor. Not being a narcissist is the only quality one could have to prove one is not a narcissist. There is no act a person can perform or one thing a person can do that would prove once and for all that the person is not and never has been and never will be a narcissist. Yet all the same, if you are not a narcissist, other people will recognize this fact, just as if you are, that too will come to light. Empathy. Narcissist's do not posess it nor do they understand it.
Nixon believed a relationship would increase trade
Please let me apologize in advance for my sarcasm, but I wish this were always the case! If all the narcissists paired up, then they would leave all us normal folks alone... Seriously, I did read somewhere (in Sam Vaknin's site?) that there are two particular "types" of narcissists may do well for a time...Was it an inverted narcissist he was refering to? I don't quite remember.(Google: "inverted narcissist maybe?) I also read that there are folks out there that actually like being in a relationship with a narcissist!
AnswerEarly Christians believed that sickness was the punishment for sin, and that if the sins were forgiven, the person would become well. It is now well understood that there is no relationship between sickness and sin.
Did the person leave because they're a narcissist, have love for the other person, or both? If the individual has left you for someone else, why would you want the person back? Move on! The right person for you may just be right around the corner. Answer2: A narcissist has more love for themselves than anyone else anyway, so what makes you think you can win them back once they have left. Please move on, you deserve better than a narcissist anyway.
You have to assess whether this person could be a danger to your children. Would controlled visitation be an option? Otherwise if this person is dangerous, the children are probably better off without any contact. They will be fine as long as you are honest with them as they grow up.
no. a sadist would want to hurt you. a narcissist would want to be hurt.
Probably not, they would fight over mirror time. ;)
I would believe most women in a relationship have love for the other person and would not want to look else where. Why would a person be in a relationship and still look around? Seems to me that type of person would be in the wrong relationship.
a dependent relationship is when one or both the people involved in the relationship depend on each other. they can not do anything without the other person at least influencing them. they do everything the other person would do. The person who is dependant on the relationship would in some cases break down if they did not have the other person.
Pretty much - they need a worshipper & a scapegoat. Pathetic how they can't be alone so STAY AWAY from them!
The narcissist wants something and thinks he or she can get it from you.
The two concepts are not often connected, but emasculated means deprived of masculinity (in literal terms that would mean castrated, although the term is more likely to be used metaphorically) and a narcissist is a person who is absorbed in self-love and does not care about other people. These are both unattractive personality traits, so an emasculated narcissist would be pretty bad.
If he was a narcissist, then nothing you did could ever be a good as he knew he "deserved." So he looked elsewhere, which he'll probably keep doing for the rest of his life, no matter how well the woman he's with treats him.He wanted something other than what he got from you. I think it's the same answer regardless of his psychiatric diagnosis, if any. It would be harder to please a narcissist than the average person. The person trying to please a narcissist wouldn't get empathy back, among other things, so it might be for the best to have a narcissist leave you. But I don't think the trigger for that happening is much different than any other relationship.
No. They are about control, are egotistical, argumentative, selfish and feel they are god-like. Only their views count! Even if they found another person that was narcissistic they wouldn't get along (a war would ensue I'm sure!) They may find another person to have a relationship with, but that person will soon find out the narcissistic traits and move on.
