"I didn't see it coming. The chemistry was through the roof, the intimacy off the charts! I thought he was my soulmate. And then he disappeared. I'm devastated." Ever had this kind of experience? This means you have dated a narcissist, a man who cares more about his needs than yours, a guy who runs for the hills when you begin to fall in love.
How do you easily spot a narcissist so you can stop dating him/her for once and for all?
This article is dedicated not just for women dating a male narcissist - it holds true if you switched genders. Feel free to substitute woman for man.
It's pretty easy to spot the classic narcissist. Narcissism is defined as extreme selfishness, with a grandiose view of one's own talents and a craving for admiration.
It's a bit more complex when the man you're dating is cleverly cloaked as the charming "nice guy." It's intoxicating to be around him. He's fun and exciting. It feels like he's your true soul connection. It's easy to lose your head and heart once you become emotionally or sexually involved.
If you learn how to spot a narcissist from the outset of a relationship, you can stop dating him right away. You won't experience the shock and heartbreak. And soon you'll begin to attract healthier relationships into your life.
Here are six ways to recognize and stop dating a narcissist:
Don't make demands on him to change. He won't.
Don't nag him or play games with him, such as making him chase you by playing hard to get. These tactics will never get him to be the kind of guy with whom you can forge a healthy relationship.
Do speak to him with firm conviction. Tell him that this relationship is not working for you. And this is crucial: walk away, never to look back and hope for reconciliation.
