They went all out to impress you when you met them but now that you have been with them for some time, you notice that now they are seeking the admiration of strangers over you.
When a Narcissist has their eyes set on you, empty flattery is their first step in gaining access to you.
Have you ever dated or been in a relationship with someone who seemed to put you down at every turn and sabotage you? Who treated your accomplishments with contempt or your success with callous indifference? If so, you may have encountered a pathologically envious narcissist.
You’d rather keep your thoughts or feelings to yourself than risk hurting your partner’s feelings or starting an argument.
They lack all empathy. In fact, they are incapable of seeing the world through other people’s eyes. They are only concerned with how other people affect them.
When you teach someone love is something someone can give and take, they enter the world and enter relationships after that thinking they can change one’s mind about how they might feel.
You are a giver. He saw that straight away.
Narcissists will tell you that they couldn’t stop staring at your picture the other day but they won’t necessarily confirm if it was because it was nice looking or not.
