Dating a narcissist can be one of the most damaging relationships in the world. Anyone who finds themselves in a relationships like this should make an exit as fast as they can. These types of relationships will drive any normal person crazy, and the narcissist that you are dealing with every day is going to make your life miserable. Unless you’re a therapist, most people are not made to deal with this kind of behavior.
Why Is Narcissistic Behavior Bad?
The narcissist that you are dating is going to be all about themselves, and not anyone or anything else. Your partner is going to think and talk about how hard everything is for them, how everything makes them miserable and how they are the most important thing in the world. This is a problem for people who have empathy and the capacity to see how other people have their own lives, and this is going to make it even harder for you to have a normal conversation.
The narcissist that is making your life miserable is going to not think for one second about how it is going to be hard for you to listen to them complain all the time. A narcissist is thinking about what makes them happy, and they believe that even a small amount of effort is more than enough for the people around them. Remember, a narcissist is like a child; a toddler wants what they want, and a narcissistic adult is not different. You will notice that you are annoyed by the way that this person puts no work into a relationship. They can fake it when you start dating, but they cannot fake it for very long.
Get Out Now!
You need to get out of a relationship with a narcissist as fast as you can. Narcissistic behavior is a mental issue, one which can be addressed but only by a professional. It’s in your best interest to leave the relationship now before you start questioning your own judgement. For those who are easily manipulated it’s easy to start thinking that everything you do is wrong, and you will become someone who is afraid to listen to your own instincts. This can be especially damaging for women because of the way most girls and women are raised; to be the provider of comfort to all of those around them.
