When someone posts one too many selfies or flex pics on their dating profile or talks about themselves constantly during a first date, we might call them a narcissist. But a true narcissist is someone with narcissistic personality disorder NPD. The most recent edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders lists nine criteria for NPD, but it specifies that someone only needs to meet five of them to clinically qualify as a narcissist.
Please avoid diagnosing your partner in conversation. Rather, read on to gain some insight into the health of your relationship. It started as a fairy tale. Sure, we all love to feel lusted for. But real love has to be nurtured and grown. People with NPD will try to manufacture superficial connections early on in a relationship.
Clinical psychologist Dr. Angela Grace, PhD, MEd, BFA, BEd , adds that narcissists will often exaggerate their accomplishments and embellish their talents in these stories in order to gain adoration from others. The warning is two-part here, says Grace. Ask yourself: What happens when you do talk about yourself? Do they ask follow-up questions and express interest to learn more about you? Or do they make it about them? But according to Tawwab, most people with NPD actually lack self-esteem.
Lack of empathy, or the ability to feel how another person is feeling, is one of the hallmark characteristics of a narcissist, Walfish says. Or do they get bored when you express the things making you mad and sad? Dig deeper into their connections and you may notice that they only have casual acquaintances, buddies they trash-talk, and nemeses. As a result, they might lash out when you want to hang out with yours. Suddenly, everything you do, from what you wear and eat to who you hang out with and what you watch on TV, is a problem for them.
A warning : If they knock you down with insults when you do something worth celebrating, get away. Narcissists may spew blatant lies, falsely accuse others, spin the truth, and ultimately distort your reality. s of gaslighting include the following:. There are thousands of reasons someone might not want to label your relationship.
But remember that you deserve someone who is as committed to you as you are to them. While ending the relationship is the best game plan with a narcissist, Weiler advises on avoiding negotiation and arguments. The thing that drives a narcissist crazy is the lack of control and the lack of a fight. This inability to apologize could reveal itself in situations where your partner is obviously at fault, like:. As soon as you back away, a narcissist will try that much harder to keep you in their lives.
And because of this, many narcissists find themselves in on-again, off-again romantic relationships until they find someone else to date. The result? They might bad-mouth you to save face. Or they might start immediately dating someone else to make you feel jealous and help heal their ego.
Offer them no explanation. Offer no second chance. None of these s point to a healthy relationship, NPD or not.
