Alright so I want to take the time to rant about narcissism and how to possibly look for these signs in your date or partner. It can be a very serious issue for the other person if it exists. Narcissism is what causes the other person’s self-esteem to vanish gradually. If the guy or girl approaches you out of the blue trying to get your attention, chances are they’re narcissistic. If they feel comfortable with strangers and are able to make you feel chummy at a very rapid pace, they’re narcissistic. And finally if they have a habit of making small talk regarding personal matters while they’re on a date with you, then once again they’re considered narcissistic.
Whenever you encounter people like this, unless you feel any type of deep emotion make a run for it!! Because such people only think and care about themselves. In the long-term, you only find yourself dejected and heartbroken! Now I was in a relationship like this, but luckily I noticed these characteristics early on and so I managed to break ties effortlessly. It’s very easy for guys and girls to become spellbound by such people of the opposite sex so just use proper judgement and be realistic of how south such a relationship can go!!
Narcissism is not a medical condition, but there are several theories revolving around how people develop this trait, such as: It’s in their DNA!!, they did not receive much attention growing up, or they were compelled to provide emotional support to their parents during emotional distress. Whatever the reason is, such people only tend to leave destruction in their wake as they just do not know how to show consideration towards others.
Anyway these are just my personal thoughts. Have you ever had a boyfriend/girlfriend who was narcissistic? Can pure kindness actually cure such people? What are your thoughts on dating such people? Feel free to leave a comment below!
