Do Narcissists know they are Narcissistic, and Avoid Dating One
INTRODUCTION: What is a Narcissist?
”Narcissistic personality disorder — one of several types of personality disorders — is a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others”
What does he or she need, Narcissistic is pathological or excessive want for attention, pampering and admiration from codependents, They do not consider the feelings, indeed opinions or preferences of others
They are offended super quickly
“You have a whole range of people who are Super Sensitive, lack empathy, unable to empathise they don’t feel bad when you feel bad, so without realising it can hurt you.” Paradoxically though a narcissist’s own feelings can be hurt very easily
Some tendencies include ”from my experience dating one”
- NEVER WRONG
- SELF CENTERED
- APPLY EMOTIONAL BLACKMAIL
This is a Good question, in my experience with what i [research and conclude as being a narcissistic personality] a mindset in believing they are more intelligent, even more organized. As it stands in this case I have to admit she had a Phd in Psychology?
EVERYDAY COMMON SENSE
However in normal daily situations she was hopeless, didn’t know about finances, and setting up a budget for anything, what was earnt was money to be used,
Hence lived from month to month on the next pay cheque
But paradoxically she expected me to take care of that, to be the brains in this area of financial needs and this lead me understand clearly she didn’t want to be bothered.
She Sought to be socially respected and flaunted without realizing this act [or claim not to] with a smirk on the face.
ADMIRED BUT NOT ADMITTING
- Love attention particularly and especially from men [the opposite gender]
- Don’t get on or work well with women her age, feels disconnected from her so called friends i met displayed a distinct distancing in the group and watchful.
- Despise or Cant take critical or challenging situations or confrontation,
- If you manage that, you are drawn into other un-associated arguments where complaints come into play.
- An accumulation of events pour right on out every time
- They want facts in every argument or disagreement sometimes where there is none
Many off- the- wall arguments were experienced all came like a waterfall, one of many occasion she went into an almost catatonic-like immobilized state on the bed and complained of palpitation, still enough energy to keep finding criticism with
‘’my medicines you know the ones i take’’ let me have them [and there were several of those to choose in the fridge, ALL IN UKRAINIAN?
”You don’t love me as i do you”
Your not a man, You’re Too sensitive
You’re Not showing your age [as if being senior to her, experienced, and taking whatever she cared to dispense my way, i was supposed to calmly and happily keep my composure?
EARLY SIGNS OF BATTLE
Early in the relationship I was shown the Red flag
But didn’t act on it, well why would I?
When she told me her ex-had in the middle of a traffic junction slammed on the handbrake and as the car skidded promptly he leapt out to car in a furious mood, Like you may see in the movie ”fast and furious?”
They love to control and dominate people, one more thing they become very angry if they don’t receive extra- special treatment.
If you recognise this personality, You better comply and show agreement
Ironically enough I also ended up needing to get out of the car, Mine was similar but less spectacular than the ‘Ex’. I had to distance myself from her so I instructed her to [‘’stop the car and let me out as she was driving’’] a block or 2 from her apartment,
My Ears were burning so certainly it was a coincidence or double whammy for her and shock her to the core. Boy did i pay for that gentler act later.
DEMEANOR ~ BEHAVIOUR
Another Irritating expression was always a crooked smirk when important conversations were in progress, and calculating posturing
ACT OF CONTROL
Gaining attention she decided to grab my attention by walking up t me reaching out and Picking off my expensive sunglasses like a movie scene [again] while we were visiting a new location in china.
Calmly and deliberately tossing it over her shoulder into the river behind
Yes that ‘what you going to do about it’ smirk was there again plain as day saying
She really knew how to dig the knife-in and expected no retaliation or anger even see no harm in it.
The time Finally came with ultimatums where i had to decide if it was worth the long term anguish,uncertainties and being an empath knowingly taking tantrums,disruptive moods and rubbish from a narcissist it has had its day!

When our committed relationship involves a narcissistic partner or someone with a narcissistic personality disorder, it is inevitable that the experience, at some point, will take a very dark turn. Pathological liars, chronic cheaters, and masters at passive-aggressive punishments (i.e. the silent treatment)
Narcissists follow a specific relationship agenda where every deceptive move is deliberately calculated to confuse and abuse the people who love them.
And, as crazy as it Seems, lovers of narcissist hang in there believing they can fix this quirky behavior even pretend to love them accepting time is the healer?…but the truth is that is impossible.
Narcissists, psychopaths, and sociopaths can never be fixed with good intentions and love, they need Professional therapy, its a compulsive behaviour and they themselves are overcome by the compunction. a 12 month hands experience of mine found that out, and the hardest way.
Even offering to or raising the topic of professional help ”together’ was an insult and brought about other unpleasant incidents

IS A CHANGE POSSIBLE?
Change is something we are all capable of applying some of us require professional support, others family and awareness and coming to terms with this condition or problem
The Fact remains that many people with narcissistic tendencies lack the care to face barriers. People with narcissistic tendencies may display: grandiose behavior and fantasies.
They don’t allow space to others, needs must be acted on and met without failure and delays, and their conversations are primarily monologues. Also, the is also a need to express how good the Ex-BF was.
Their world allows only their perspective and methods, they rule and everybody else has to follow them. These very tendencies places them in a shallow and small group if any, friendship circle and not really allowed or accepted completely
