Signs of dating a narcissist
If they don't take your feelings personally, they still are unlikely to respond with much sympathy or helpfulness.
They are more likely to react with irritation than compassion because the focus is supposed to be on them, not on others. Also, be realistic about their capacity for change.
But he's likely to say your idea later as if it was his own.
Narcissists think everything is about them, so if you try to say something about a feeling like sadness or anxiety that you've been experiencing, they are likely to hear it as a criticisms of themselves.
They have so many of the same interests, love everything you love, wine and dine you, they can’t get enough of you, more than likely it is the most romantic relationship you have ever had. He wants to know everything about you, is very interested in learning about your childhood, your hopes and dreams, your past relationships.
It is one thing if a guy introduces you to his friends but it is another thing if he purposely shows you off in ways that it will get back to his ex. Past accomplishments or experiences that are just a little too far-fetched or too good to be true. If you discuss past relationships and he is asked about fidelity he will tearfully admit to having ONE indiscretion, and it was only because his ex was so jealous and was always “falsely” accusing him anyway and he did it and then felt so bad.
I thought yeah, who wouldn’t know the relationship was over if you aren’t sleeping together.
(That is until he stopped sleeping with me a year or 2 into the relationship and kept telling me he loved me and I was being overly sensitive and paranoid) 5. Taking you to mutual friends of his ex’s, (if possible he will use you are a pawn to hurt his ex.) Quickly takes you to meet the family.
That's the short explanation of the basics behind narcissistic personality disorder.
If you're dating someone who exhibits signs of narcissism, that might be a major red flag for your relationship. He doesn't care about your feelings, thoughts or ideas.
