Signs You’re Dating a Narcissist

 

We tend to usually call people narcissistic if they are keep themselves first or talk a lot about themselves in social gatherings. An actual narcissist is someone with a mental health condition of narcissistic personality disorder. Some clearly notable characteristics of narcissistic people are:

  • They have an inflated worth of themselves
  • They do not make other people their priority
  • They are constantly playing the victim.
  • They are not empathic towards fellow beings.
  • They have poor social skills.
  • They have a fragile ego.
  • They have a lack of shame.
  • They constantly require attention and affection

Are you wondering your partner is a narcissist? Here are few points to look out for.

When they initially approached you, they must have been soft and highly appreciative of you in the beginning. Narcissists think they are deserving of those people who are extraordinary, because they assume those extraordinary people are the ones who can be entirely appreciative of them.

What narcissists love to do is think highly of themselves all the time. They can go on and on about talking about their success lavishly. They do this to become more self-assured and hold a sense of betterment compared to other people. In order to win adulation from others, narcissists would often overstate their successes and enhance their talents in these stories. They re also too preoccupied with themselves to pay attention to you. This is a two-part warning. Your companion will not stop talking about themselves, and he or she will not engage in discourse about you.

Narcissists have listening issues. As they enjoy talking and hearing about their selves, they do not hold importance in listening to their partner’s matters.

They have no empathy nor sympathy for you or anyone else around them and they don t care about how their actions affect others, if it doesn t affect them negatively in any way, shape, or form. Because they don t understand the notion of feelings, narcissists are unable to make you feel seen, validated, understood, or accepted.

Narcissists may appear to be extremely self-assured. The majority of people with NPD have low self-esteem. Narcissists rely on other people, usually empathic individuals to give them a sense of self-worth and make them feel strong. However, because of their poor self-esteem, their egos are easily slighted, necessitating more compliments.

10 Red Flags That Your Partner Is a Narcissist

  • They are always seeking attention and hunting for compliments.
  • They are very controlling.
  • They are always the victim.
  • They are usually fantasizing about big successes and power
  • They have huge sense of privilege
  • They are not empathetic
  • They hold a belief that others are envious of them.
  • They are very arrogant.
  • They think of themselves as special and one of a kind.
  • They do not hold their partner or their partner’s needs a priority.

If you re in a relationship with someone who has NPD, you ve probably already gone through a lot. It s extremely draining to be in a relationship with someone who constantly criticizes, belittles, and refuses to commit to you.

This artcile isn t implying that all of these characteristics apply to every narcissist, but if you notice a lot of them in your partner, you should start evaluating yourself and your relationship. If this is occurring to you, it is strongly advised that you seek professional assistance because this is not a problem that can be resolved on your own. An online therapist can help your understand your relationship problems and help you resolve the issues.
